What is Neurofeedback?

Biofeedback Brain MapNeurofeedback (NFB) is an innovative computer based training technique that allows an individual to learn to self-regulate his or her own brain waves, shaping the neuronal activity for improvement in cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning. It is a noninvasive, drug-free and painless approach to providing rewards to your brain for producing the desired brain wave pattern of relaxed concentration.

Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback. The electroencephalogram (EEG) is another name for the brain wave recordings and, in this context, biofeedback refers to the process by which you learn to change your brain waves and thereby gain better control over your brain states.

Neurofeedback training is brainwave biofeedback. The characteristic that distinguishes neurofeedback from other forms of biofeedback is a focus on the CNS and the brain.

In the late 1960’s and 1970’s it was learned that it was possible to recondition and
retrain brainwave patterns. Neurofeedback is similar to exercising or doing physical
therapy with the brain, enhancing cognitive flexibility and control.

This symptom-based therapy may be offered as an alternative option or adjunct to
medication therapy. It may also aid in improving ones’ athletic or professional
performance.

Neurofeedback has been researched for 30 years and is now considered to be an
emerging evidence-based technique which enhances self-regulation
of the brain. The equipment we use for Neurofeedback is FDA Registered.
