Neurofeedback is a noninvasive form of biofeedback which focuses on the electrical activity of the brain, also known as brain waves. This brain activity is picked up by sensors attached to the scalp, and sophisticated software takes a part of this information and shows it back to the brain through visual, auditory, and tactile feedback. In this way the brain is able to see what it is doing, and it will adjust itself as it sees fit. Many studies have shown that the brain is very capable of changing itself through the process of neuroplasticity. It is important to understnad that no electricity is put into your brain. The sensors only monitor the brain’s activity.
Neurofeedback has been around for a long time. It was orginally used to successfully treat seizures, but its uses have expanded to now treat many condition as well as to improve performance.
I use neurofeedback in three ways, which you can learn more about by clicking on these links:
