WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?

Neurofeedback (NFB, also known as neurobiofeedback or EEG Biofeedback) is a type of biofeedback that uses sensors placed on the scalp to measure brain waves. NFB uses realtime displays of EEG to exhibit brain activity and teach self-regulation.  A signal is produced that can be used as feedback on brain activity to teach self-regulation.  NFB is commonly provided using video and/or sound in order to provide positive and negative feedback for brain activity. 

Neurofeedback helps the brain function more effectively and more efficiently through guided brain function training. Whether we are talking, focusing, reading, problem solving or any other cognitive, behavioral or emotional function our brains are continually changing frequencies throughout our day.

Using software, neurofeedback gives audio and visual feedback that involves increasing or decreasing certain brain wave frequencies.  This allows the brain to function with greater stability and control and enhances its function through its regulation of thoughts, feelings, and focus.

HOW DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?

Most neurofeedback systems apply electrodes to specific areas of the scalp and ears using a special conductive paste in order to monitor brainwave activity.  The sensors transmit brainwave signals to the computer software which records and measures the frequencies during the protocol. The sensors are not inputting anything, nor removing anything, from the brain. The client then sees the frequencies on the screen. Most systems do this through video games or morphology feedback.  During neurofeedback, the client either plays the game or manipulates the feedback to shape the brainwave activity to a more regulated and desirable state. As the desired brain wave is achieved, the brain learns to direct itself toward a more desirable performance level. Each individual is set up to target specific frequencies dependent on their wants and needs. Neurofeedback is completely holistic, non-invasive, and painless.
