By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

An Introduction to Neurofeedback Neurofeedback is a subdivision of Biofeedback. In fact, many people’s first reaction to hearing the term “neurofeedback” is usually to ask me, do you mean Biofeedback?, which they have heard about at some point in their life, especially if they once owned a “mood ring”. Biofeedback is the general category, similar to referring to the general term of foods such as “fruit.” Simply put, Biofeedback is a method of gaining information by monitoring skin temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, brain waves and other body conditions to help promote […]

By: | Tags: , , ,

In September 2013, Chris Gardner went from kicking and spinning as a black belt in taekwondo to being locked in a world where he could not follow conversations — or even walk his dog. The 58-year-old Vienna, Va., resident had just had brain surgery to remove a large tumor, and the operation affected his mobility and cognition. After nine months of physical and occupational therapy, he’d made little progress. So he tried neurofeedback, hoping this controversial treatment would improve his balance and mental processes. Neurofeedback — a type of biofeedback […]

Can Neurofeedback Change Your Brain?

By: | Tags: , ,

Evidence suggests neurofeedback has the potential to treat common ailments, without medication. Thirty years from now, we all might be getting some sort of neurofeedback. Scientists are now using this cutting-edge method — a way of scanning the brain and giving it course corrections — to treat a battery of conditions that range from ADHD to depression and seizures. In short, here’s how it works: An electroencephalogram (EEG), sits on your skull and scans your brain. Then, in real-time, it tracks your brain’s activities as you play a computer game or […]

Neurofeedback used successfully to treat PTSD

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

STUART — Meet Col. Bart Billings, PhD and retired U.S Army clinical psychologist. Dr. Billings served in the Veterans Administration helping many injured vets regain mental and emotional capacity with what was then known as biofeedback, which has now evolved into neurofeedback. I met Col. Billings about a year ago, when he heard my radio show on the Internet discussing the benefits of neurofeedback, which we offer to our vets free of charge. That got his attention. We have become friends now, with similar views on natural healing approaches that […]

Neurofeedback Training for Your Brain

By: | Tags: , , , ,

Neurofeedback is a relatively new biofeedback technique that focuses on helping a person train themselves to directly affect brain function. Although it sounds like science-fiction in nature, it’s actually a reputable and scientifically-proven technique practiced by specially-trained psychotherapists. Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a gradual therapeutic learning process that takes time and focus. As the name implies, neurofeedback works by providing feedback to an individual about their brain, specifically, their brainwaves. Feedback in a vacuum, however, is useless, so the individual undergoing neurofeedback is rewarded for patterns of […]

The benefits of neurofeedback

Who can benefit from neurofeedback (biofeedback) training? Anyone.  Unlike other neurofeedback systems that train specific sites on your brain based on your symptoms, NeurOptimal Neurofeedback trains your entire central nervous system to perform optimally. Neurofeedback gives your system feedback about its maladaptive patterns and your brain decides how to use that information to improve its overall functioning.  NeurOptimal therapy adds nothing to your brain, therefore, it is very safe.   What results can I expect from neurofeedback? When the brain is trained with NeurOptimal neurofeedback, clients may notice the following: Feeling calmer […]

Neurofeedback: regulating brain dysfunction using video games

By: admin1 | Tags: , , , , , , ,

It has long been theorized that video game consumption causes brain dysfunction by alienating the player from the real world and in so doing turning him into a mere twitching, reflexive zombie. These views could be justified. But what if we could turn this very same player into a meditative seeker of truth? By playing a video game, a person could learn to find and control his own inner peace (with the help of a sensei, of course). Could this cause of brain dysfunction then be considered a cure? Surprisingly, such an approach to […]
