Analogous to the way that Physical Therapy helps a person gain strength, flexibility, and range of motion, neurofeedback allows a person to gain mastery over anxiety, focus, concentration, and relaxation. It also creates flexibility in the mind. Cognitive flexibility is as important as physical flexibility. We think of neurofeedback as Physical Therapy for the brain. We employ qEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) and EEG biofeedback (also called neurofeedback or neurotherapy) to train individuals to alter their brainwaves.
To accomplish this, we first create a brain map (qEEG) — a picture of the activity in a person’s brain before training. This is done by ...more

The electrical oscillations we call brain waves have intrigued scientists and the public for more than a century. But their function—and even whether they have one, rather than just reflecting brain activity like an engine’s hum—is still debated. Many neuroscientists have assumed that if brain waves do anything, it is ...more
