Q: What Is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is operant conditioning in one of its truest forms. We can read a person's eeg with just a very simple headband device that gets placed on various parts of the head depending on what that person wants to accomplish. Whether they want to increase attension, whether they want to sleep better, whether they want to reduce anxiety and depression – all of those things we can address with Neurofeedback. With that headband, we see the EEG as it is and with a reward and inhibit system that is directed by the software we can retrain that person's EEG.
Neurofeedback came out of initial NASA research in the late 50's/early 60's from an accident in which it turns out that the test subjects had already been involved in a previous experiment of operant conditioning. Regarding those inhibits and rewards, technology is such that we can monitor and give a client realtime feedback information in order to guide one's brain into a more optimal neuronal regulation state.
Neurofeedback deals with issues of attension and arousal; think of it as biofeedback training for the brain. So, we guide you aurally and visually, being monitored by the computer software. We can help you evolve a more optimal state of, as I said, regulation. That can result in higher functioning, better clarity, better sense of being and a better quality of life.
