What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback has been in use for over 30 years but is only now becoming widely known. A powerful technology rooted in the foundations of biofeedback, the primary goal of neurofeedback is to stabilize brain function. Sensors are placed on the scalp; the electrical activity of brain waves is amplified, filtered through software, and fed back to the brain. The brain then uses the feedback to normalize its electrical patterns. It is the modern application of the EEG (electroencephalogram) machine. Rather than curing specific conditions, neurofeedback helps balance the brain so that the brain corrects itself. This process trains the central nervous system to self-regulate so that it functions better as a result.
