Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback, is a learning strategy that enables a person to alter their own brain waves. Neurofeedback can be described as brain exercise or brain training; it is training in self-regulation. Good self-regulation is necessary for optimal brain function. It enhances the function of the central nervous system and can increase mental performance, emotional control, and physiologic stability.
Who can benefit from Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback has been used for a variety of conditions, which appear to be associated with irregular brain activity including the Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder with and without hyperactivity and specific learning disabilities. The procedure has also shown promise with certain behavior disorders, sleep problems, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, age related memory loss, stroke, minor head injury and seizure disorders. In our experience, and in the reported studies, most subjects benefit to a greater or lesser extent from the treatment.
How can a Neurofeedback Vacation help me?
Our work and studies in the literature suggest that positive effects gained via Neurofeedback are durable so long as triggering events and metabolic status remain relatively stable. Not only that, but recent research supports that the brain continues its process of learning to function better for an additional 6 months to a year even after the Neurofeedback sessions have been completed.
Will training my brain make me into a different person?
People with better functioning brains are better able to make their own decisions, better able to come to conclusions, and better able to act upon those conclusions. However, Neurofeedback does not change the CONTENT of the brain.
Are there any risks?
In regards to risks or harm, there is no evidence, either from our facility's experience or from the medical literature, that the treatment is harmful or that it creates long-term negative side effects. It is a non-invasive procedure. In fact, often side effects seem to be in terms of unanticipated improvement in other problems that were not the focus of treatment (find a new job, leave an abusive relationship, stop meeting with your therapist).
Is all Neurofeedback training the same?
No, providers and equipment vary. All sessions are supervised by Freddy Starr, MD, FAACAP, BCIA. We use state of the art 19 channel surface and LORETA brain training to assist you with improving your brain function in the shortest possible time.
