What is Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback because it is based on electrical brain activity. It is the direct training of brain function by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. This is a gradual learning process and it applies to any aspect of brain function.
How is Neurofeedback done?
Sensors are attached to the scalp with EEG paste to record your brainwaves. It is painless and does not involve the application of any voltage or current to your brain, so it is entirely non-invasive. A computer processes the brain waves and extracts certain information from them.
What happens if Neurofeedback clients are taking medications?
With successful Neurofeedback training, medications targeting brain function may no longer be needed, or they may be needed at lower dosages as the brain takes over the role of regulating itself. It is important for clients to communicate with their prescribing physician regarding Neurofeedback and medications.
