Neurofeedback EEG Helps In Improving The Brain Activity

Jun 17, 2008
When studying brain activity, there are patterns of under-activation, over-activation or disturbed coordination, which have been found to be common to many kinds of symptoms as shown in brain imaging studies. These patterns often emerge with attention deficit disorders, anxiety disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and cases of depression and learning disabilities. Such behavioral patterns are created and maintained at deep neuropsychological levels. Neurofeedback EEG is a type of brainwave training that can be used to effect change in these patterns.

In simple terms, EEG neurofeedback therapy is a method to retrain a person's brainwave pattern through the use of sophisticated biofeedback machines. In addition, trained and skilled biofeedback therapists help the client to learn and practice the techniques that will help them to manage and control their brain activity. This is done by showing the patient the displays on the biofeedback equipment, which is what translates the brainwave activity into charts and graphs, and in some instances light and sound feedback.

With neurofeedback EEG training and simple energy control techniques, people have been able to improve their health, sharpen their minds, and improve numerous health conditions, as well as enjoying increased joy and vitality. Biofeedback therapy can also promote high levels of wellness, can improve immune function, can help to reverse certain types of disease and illness, and can support peak performance.

Also called electroencephalographic biofeedback, it makes use of computerized electronic measurement devices, or electrodes, that are placed on the surface of the head in order to monitor brainwave activity. The computer then "feeds back" important information relevant to the activity of the brain and the condition that the person wants to improve.

Neurofeedback EEG electrotherapy can thereby restore homeostasis in the person's system in a relatively short period of time. Many people report that they notice changes after their first treatment. However, for some people it takes repeated biofeedback therapy sessions to detect the desired improvements.

In all cases, in order to enjoy lasting changes, the person should expect to go through ten to twenty sessions. This usually provides a sufficient amount of time to properly receive neurofeedback training, under the supervision of a biofeedback therapist, so that eventually they can control and manipulate their brainwave activity, even when there is no biofeedback device available to rely on for the real-time feedback.

Throughout the sessions, information is gathered about the brainwave patterns and also about the efficiency of the communication that is going on between different parts of the brain. This measurement is done as the client sits with eyes open at first while doing one or two cognitive tasks, and then these tasks are repeated with eyes closed.

The biofeedback training sessions generally occur one to five times per week, and normally the sessions last for one hour. When training is done less than one hour per week, the client can easily forget what has been learned and has difficulty learning to recognize and control the activity patterns of their brain. This can result in a need for more sessions over a longer period of time.

Training the brain to function at its maximum potential through neurofeedback EEG treatments is quite similar to the way the physical body is trained, toned and maintained. But, instead of training muscles, the brain is being trained through exercises that develop the neural pathways. This in turn allows the brain to function better, in terms of concentration and focus.
