a non-drug, reward-based training system for your brain.
Neurofeedback training draws upon the brain’s ability to learn and utilizes the EEG (Electroencephalography) signals that can be recorded at the scalp as leverage for positive change. This is possible because moment to moment brain function is directly linked to the EEG oscillations,
Hans Berger’s first recordings and analysis of the EEG back in the 1920s was founded on the belief that brainwave measurement would have the potential for the investigation of mental illness. Neurologists picked up the technique and applied it to the detection of epilepsy in the 1930s and 40s.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free and safe technique that bridges psychology and physiology. It is a procedure that uses real-time information about the time-varying EEG activity (so-called brainwaves) to teach clients to self-regulate their brain functions. This sounds like a bit of a stretch to some people but actually, we do this naturally all the time – at an unconscious and sometimes a conscious level.
Mounting research is building an understanding that there may be ways to slow the progression and change the pathologies of many common dementias, giving families and their loved ones a chance to enjoy the quality of life and the possibility of more precious, fulfilling moments together.
The role of neurofeedback is to train (retrain) the brain to maintain itself within the thresholds of safety and consequently regulate the reaction of the central nervous system.
