How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback in Palm Desert

Research has shown that there are normal patterns of brainwave activity for just about any circumstance we experience, from driving to learning something new, to sleeping, cooking, to repeating motions we have performed thousands of times. Sometimes, brainwave patterns become dysregulated and affect our abilities in numerous ways such as memory loss, decreased ability to focus or behavioral change.

Due to neuroplasticity, the brain has the innate ability to form new neural connections in response to learning or new experience. Neurofeedback is a way to utilize the brain’s plasticity by reengaging brainwaves to promote change and healing. Neurofeedback helps you harness the power and natural ability of your own brain to help transform brainwave imbalances without (or alongside) medication. It is noninvasive and includes EEG sensors that monitor brainwaves, and a computer to send feedback to you, such as through scientifically designed brain training programs that look similar to video games.

“Neurofeedback and medication are the two most common forms of treatment for ADHD/ADD. Both are successful in treating these disorders in a large majority of cases. There are, however, significant differences in the ways these treatments work, the potential side effects of their use, the length of treatment necessary, and, importantly the lessons learned by the child of how to correct personal problem”
