Neurofeedback

Services Details

Neurofeedback, often referred to as EEG biofeedback, is a type of biofeedback in which individuals learn to improve their brain function. Neurofeedback helps promote the stability of brain waves, and consequently, brain functioning. Neurofeedback utilizes non-invasive sensors on the scalp to detect physiological signals from a person’s brain. Using computerized feedback (auditory and/or visual), individuals learn to increase or decrease the amplitude of certain brain waves over time through the principles of classical and operant conditioning. As certain frequencies increase or decrease, the trainee gets feedback (auditory and/or visual) on their performance in meeting the training goals. This visual and auditory feedback is a form of operant conditioning that re-trains brainwave patterns to improve self-regulation abilities. Neurofeedback does not involve surgery or medication, is painless, and has long lasting effects. Neurofeedback has empirical support for the following conditions: ADD/ADHD, learning & developmental disabilities, addictive disorders, cognitive decline due to aging, anxiety, autism & asperger’s, chronic fatigue & fibromyalgia, cognitive enhancement, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, peak performance, PTSD, pain & headache, sleep, traumatic brain injury, and stroke.
