Neurofeedback is a training approach that utilizes equipment to monitor and regulate brain activity. The process involves measuring the electrical activity of the brain, known as EEG, to determine the brain’s state of calmness, alertness, or tension. The information obtained from the EEG is then used to provide feedback to the brain in real-time, rewarding desired brain activity. To ensure the most effective training, a comprehensive measurement of the brain known as a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) is conducted before the therapy begins.
How does the training work?
In neurofeedback training, the brain is trained to reach optimal states through the principle of operant conditioning, which involves providing positive feedback at appropriate times. For instance, if an individual is feeling tense, the therapy will help the brain attain a more relaxed state. Similarly, if an individual struggles with concentration, the training will train the brain to facilitate better focus.
The training process is often carried out through engaging activities such as computer games or movie watching. These activities reward the brain for exhibiting the desired brain activity, resulting in improved performance. With sufficient training, these changes can lead to lasting effects that improve daily life.
Jeremy informed his teacher that all the teachers at his school have noticed a positive improvement in his performance and behavior. He is motivated, full of energy, and happily shares how much he enjoys school, both in class and at home.
The debilitating symptoms of my focus issues have significantly decreased. I highly recommend neurofeedback to anyone struggling with focus issues. I started my sessions in July and completed around 20 sessions until September, after which I gradually reduced them. The results have been truly transformative.
With neurofeedback, I now sleep deeply, and waking up is a breeze. After several sessions, I even stopped taking my medication. I’ve noticed a significant increase in my energy levels and my ability to tackle daily tasks with ease.
