The usage of technologies, such as biofeedback and neurofeedback methods, are an attractive approach for all those looking for a different, non-invasive, drug-free therapy. Through these methods, the mental and emotional state of a person is influenced by means of a change in the physiological processes of the body. The article summarizes numerous studies of the relationship between biofeedback and the acquisition of new and desired behaviors. The main part of the research discussed is in the field of training a new psycho-physiological response in a stressful situation, as well as for dealing with anxiety and depressive symptoms. As a conclusion from the review of a numerous scientific studies, it emerges that the new way of responding is related to the value and importance that is attached to the stimulus. Thus, by changing the evaluation of the stimulus or the scheme for interpreting the stimulus, an emotional change is induced, which also leads to a new psycho-physiological response.
