Neurofeedback Brain Training
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It is a type of biofeedback, and is also called EEG Biofeedback. The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) defines biofeedback as “a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feed back” information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument” – International Society for Neuroregulation & Research.
How It Works
As mentioned, Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It uses electrodes, which act like tiny microphones, placed on the client’s scalp to record and amplify brainwaves and control auditory, visual and/or tactile feedback which allows learning to take place. This operant learning initiates self-regulation and enhances relaxation, both necessary components of good brain function.
There are so many facets to what Neurofeedback is, and the impacts it can have on us are literally endless.
Is Neurofeedback Safe?
Absolutely. At the basis of all neurofeedback training lies the biological principle of neuroplasticity, a discovery that the brain continues to grow, learn, and adapt throughout life. With neurofeedback the brain is safely engaged in new patterns of activity and connectivity that promote neuroplastic changes in brain function and neurochemistry. The result is experienced as shifts in behavior, improved symptomology and overall increased quality of life.
Neurofeedback training helps relieve the symptoms of a lot of conditions including:
- Addiction Recovery
- Sleep Disorders
- Anxiety and Depression
- Disruptive Behavior Disorders/Bipolar Disorder
- Peak Performance
- Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury
