Neurofeedback

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a specific application of biofeedback for visualizing and training the electrical activity of the brain, the electroencephalography(EEG). Through visualization of the EEG people learn to better self-regulate their brain activity according to the principles of operant conditioning. Neurofeedback equipment are non-pharmacological and non-invasive. It focuses on optimizing the brain, rather than suppressing symptoms, which is what medication does. With successful neurofeedback training, the medication that targets brain function can be reduced or no longer required.

Neurofeedback, sometimes referred to as EEG biofeedback, neurotherapy or cognitive enhancement, addresses brain dysregulation. To get a full physiological view and insight into mind-body interaction, true power lies in combining neurofeedback with other physiological signals, such as Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and Skin Conductance (SC/GSR).

Research shows that neurofeedback, alone and combined with other behavioral therapies, is effective for treating several attention span related problems and sleep disorders. Please see this review from the International Society for Neurofeedback & Research (ISNR) for more information.

Modulate brain activity

The most common brainwaves that can be measured with neurofeedback equipment are:

Brainwaves for neurofeedback

How does a neurofeedback session work?

Offer neurofeedback as an addition to existing treatments. During a neurofeedback session real-time audiovisual feedback is provided based on normalized values. A client will be rewarded for success in terms of scores, by playing music, by showing a picture or with a video game.

Measure neurophysiology

Measure

Assessing brain function of the client and setting the treatment plan

Awareness in EEG

Awareness

Visualizing one or more EEG signals and thereby showing brain function

Optimize the brain

Optimize

Optimizing the brain with real-time audiovisual feedback based on the physiological state

Monitor EEG

Monitor

Analyzing neurophysiological effects and results of one or multiple sessions

What are the advantages?

  • Assess neurophysiological responses and dysfunctional patterns
  • Learn self-awareness over unconscious physiological changes
  • Non-pharmacological and non-invasive solution
  • Active role and participation of client
  • Treating the cause of a problem instead of treating symptoms
  • Personalized training with multimedia like videos, images and games
