Intermittent Explosive Disorder

When an individual has been diagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder, it is usually because other physiological conditions cannot be determined.  When an individual keeps randomly showing aggression and violence disproportionate to the situation or circumstance; then, they could likely be struggling with this abnormal neurological condition.  The frontal and temporal regions of the brain are associated with self-regulation of behavioral expression.  Researchers have found impairments in the frontal and temporal lobes of individuals with Intermittent Explosive Disorder.  Unpredictable outbursts of rage that involve kicking, biting, scratching, or spitting are all signs of this condition.  The extremely hostile individual may lash out towards other people or animals.  The fits of rage may be as short as 5 minutes or up to a half hour.  Neurofeedback is able to identify the specific area of the brain that is possibly causing the outbursts.  The protocol for Intermittent Explosive Disorder is finding the effected parts of the brain and then training those parts of the brain that are responsible for the out-of-control behavior.  Once the brain patterns are stabilized and balanced an individual will have more rational thought processing and control over their reactions.  Interactions become less emotionally charged and aggravating to the individual and they are better capable to cope with stress.  A person with balanced electrochemical activity inside the brain is much more likely to have control over their reactions to certain triggers and should be less likely to explode in fits of rage or violence.  Neurofeedback is the suitable treatment for optimal brain functioning and can be very effective in balancing any out of control neuronal activity and behavior.
