Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, drugless method for teaching the brain to function in a more healthy and balanced way. It is a more simple and pleasant learning modality that can help shift the way the brain distributes and produces its electrical frequency. Four divisions of electrical impulses made by our brain, Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta are called “Frequency Bands”. These Frequency Bands tell us which parts of our brain are active and which frequency bands the brain should be using to complete a given activity, task or should be most active during different states of mind.
The goal of Neurofeedback is to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and smoothly shift between states of relaxation and arousal. Since the brain also controls attention, emotional and affect regulation, this ultimately allows the entire central nervous system to resume normal functioning. Applications of Neurofeedback include but are not limited to:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- TBI/Head Injuries/Seizures/Stroke
- Peak Performance/Meditation
