Neurofeedback is brain exercise. We observe your brain in action from moment to moment by monitoring your brain waves. We show you your brain activity and we help you to change it by rewarding shifts toward a more appropriate and stable brain state. It is a gradual learning process.
Neurofeedback works by ‘holding a mirror up to the brain to give it feedback on how well it is working. In this way the brain can literally be ‘trained’ to work better. The idea that the brain can change comes from Neuroplasticity. The learning method comes from the concept of ‘classical conditioning’, discovered many years ago, which states that unconscious behavior can be learned by rewarding it. The feedback is delivered to the brain via the eyes and ears through video games and movies. When the brain is working well our technology causes the video to change, for example, to go faster, louder, softer, smaller, bigger, etc. As the client relaxes, the brain ‘tunes in’ to this feedback and adjusts in response. It is this positive reinforcement in the form of sensory feedback that trains the brain to correct any irregular behavior it may have been exhibiting. Our technology measures brain activity by observing tiny electrical signals (known as brain waves) to assess how well the brain is performing.
