All neurofeedback methods include EEG sensors that monitor your brainwaves, and a computer to send feedback back to you. There are different ways to receive this feedback. It can involve playing a game or watching a video.
The stimuli (game or video) only works smoothly when your brainwaves are functioning within an optimal range. This acts as a reward for your brain. When your brainwaves fire at a rate that is not optimal, you will receive negative feedback (your movie pauses, the music stops, etc.). This tells your brain that something is out of balance and causes it to “figure out” how to return to a seamless movie, music, or game.
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. Our Neurofeedback Systems (aka EEG biofeedback or brainwave training) are sold only to or on the order of a licensed practitioner. We will be happy to speak with your licensed practitioner regarding which options are best for you.
