The article explores on the full potential of biofeedback when used in combination with therapeutic interventions that improve connections across the injury site. It cites the study of neuroscientist Jean Peduzzi which tests the potential regenerative treatments in animal models. Peduzzi said that biofeedback might identify patients who have the greatest potential for recovery after a specific therapeutic intervention.

These approaches traditionally have been applied to mature,...
