What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is like exercise for the brain. It starts with a Quantitative Electroencephalograph (QEEG) evaluation, in which you wear a funny cap while sensors evaluate your brainwave patterns.
These sensors do not put any electrical current into the brain – they simply record signals.
This evaluation determines 760 unique points of information about brain function, including how and where your brain could be functioning better. Based on this information, we’re able to create a targeted plan for your neurofeedback treatment.
During treatment, you get to relax and watch a movie of your choice, while sensors are attached at precise points to track your brain’s activity. The picture and sound of your movie will flicker and adjust in response to brainwave activity, providing real-time feedback to your brain that something is out of balance.
Gradually, your brain learns how to better create the desired brain waves and minimize undesired brain wave patterns, by watching its own brain waves and self-correcting any dysfunction. All while you’re catching up on that baking show you like.
It’s a lot to get your head around (see what we did there?). You can learn more here.
