Training is very simple to do, even very young patients can do it!
Your brain works by generating electrical impulses that get sent along neural fibres that make up a large part of your brain. These electrical impulses carry important information and the result of which is the release of chemicals called neurotransmitters. In Neurofeedback we record the EEG (electroencephalogram) or the electrical impulses generated by the brain.
First we apply the electrodes to the scalp using a special cap that looks like a swimmer's cap. Then we begin recording your brain waves.
An amplifier makes the signal coming from your brain big enough to be "seen" and analysed by a sophisticated computer programme.
Depending on the type of brainwave activity that your brain is producing, the computer software generates feedback to provide your brain with information about it's own activity. For the client, this means that you will hear musical notes and see changes on a video screen. You don't need to make any type of effort and it is as easy as relaxing in a comfortable chair.
The entire process in completely painless and non-invasive. Most people are usually surprised at how easy it is and amazed at how the brain can change with seemingly no conscious effort on their part.
Neurofeedback has helped me recover from post concussion syndrome. It helped with insomnia, memory, fatigue, irritability, light & noise sensitivity, heightened smell & nausea, anxiety and depression, all symptoms of my brain injury. After each session I felt calm and like my brain was functioning better. I’d highly recommend it to anyone with post concussion […]
