Neurofeedback

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a specific application of biofeedback to visualize and train 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 principle of operant conditioning.  Neurofeedback is a non-pharmacological and non-invasive method for training brainwaves. It focuses on optimizing the brain, rather than suppressing symptoms like medication does. With successful neurofeedback training, the medications targeting brain function may be reduced or no longer required.  

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

Research shows that neurofeedback, alone and in combination with other behavioral therapies, is effective for treating several attention 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 and trained during neurofeedback training are:

How does a neurofeedback session work?

Offer neurofeedback as an addition to existing treatments. A neurofeedback session consists of the following steps:

Measure

Identify the cause of the physiological misbalances  of the client and set the treatment plan.

Awareness

Visualize  one or more physiological signals and thereby showing interrelationship of the body and the mind.

Optimize

Provide real-time audiovisual feedback linked to the physiological state. A client is rewarded for success.

Monitor

Analyze physiological effects 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
