Neurofeedback Is Exercise For Your Brain!
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, drug-less method of teaching the brain to function in a more balanced way. Neurofeedback is a simple learning modality that can help shift the way the brain produces and distributes its electrical energy. Four divisions of electrical impulses made by our brain, including: Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta are called “Frequency Bands”. These four Frequency Bands tell us which parts of your brain are active and which frequency bands the brain should be using to complete a given task and activity or should be most active during varying states of mind. We take what we learn from your frequency band activity and use that information to help create your BrainCore therapy sessions.
Frequency Bands & Daily Life
During normal daily activities such as making sure we pay our bills on time, driving safely in busy traffic, or following directions in class; certain areas of our brain will need to be active and using the faster frequency called Beta. On the other hand, if after a long day we wish to relax and unwind from, a different part of the brain will need to be activated using a slower brainwave frequency called Alpha. The goal of Neurofeedback is to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and to smoothly shift between states of relaxation and arousal. Since the brain also controls Attention Regulation, Emotional Regulation and Affect Regulation; this ultimately allows the entire Central Nervous System to resume normal functioning.
Neurofeedback Training Sessions
Individuals are connected to a computer using wires and sensors, thereby allowing the BrainCore technology to monitor the brainwave activity. The software automatically detects when the brainwaves are properly ordered and feeds that information back to the patient in real time. The feedback appears in the form of a game, movie, or sound which signals to the patient that the brainwaves are becoming more ordered. The patient’s own brainwaves actually control the game, movie or sound activity, and the observation of this dynamic helps the brain learn how to improve its own regulation.
Leasing of neurofeedback equipment for use in the comfort of your own home is available. Our BrainCore experts can monitor your progress from the office – this option enables patients to undergo additional treatment sessions, plus it provides an alternative option for those self-quarantining or wanting to decrease any potential COVID19 risks.
