Although the technology is complex, the process is simple, painless, and non-invasive. It is just learning. You learn to alter your brain activity the same way you learn every other skill. You learn through feedback and practice. What is new in neurofeedback is that you are guided by a form of feedback that was previously not available to you. With neurofeedback, you get instantaneous information or feedback about changes in your brain’s electrical activity. Every half second, your brain activity is compared to your target or goal for change. You get a signal and “reward” when you meet the goal. No signal or reward when you do not.
What is Neurofeedback? Well, it is also called EEG biofeedback or neurotherapy which makes use of the brain’s capacity for change to reshape brain networks. If you live near Portsmouth or Seacoast NH and Maine you now have a way to naturally train your brain towards more normalized function whether you have symptoms of anxiety, depression, focus, memory, headaches or brain injury. It is a way to directly train the brain to function better. Neurofeedback is a research-supported treatment to sharpen attention, relieve anxiety, enhance mood, and improve learning, and behavior…without medication.
