Learn More About Neurofeedback Training
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a form of brain training using EEG sensors to measure brainwave activity. Feedback is given to the individual when the brainwaves change to allow resetting mental and emotional patterns.
Is Biofeedback The Same As Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback devices were developed out of the discoveries from biofeedback that an individual can gain some control over involuntary functions to improve the body’s functioning and health. An example of biofeedback training is tracking your heart rate and then by breathing deeply lowering your heart rate.
With the development of neurofeedback, neuroscientists discovered that measuring and tracking the brain’s electrical activity, or brainwaves, was meaningful to help identify unhealthy brain activity and feedback about those patterns could be used to improve the brain’s performance.
Mental and emotional experiences are created through the brain’s use of neurochemicals and electrical impulses or brainwaves. When an individual performs tasks those tasks are reflected in brainwave activity and they can be seen if the individual has EEG sensors attached to the head. For example, when an individual is performing a mental task such as problem solving, Beta brain waves are dominant. When falling asleep the slower Theta waves take over.
If the brain doesn’t produce the correct brain wave activity to accomplish the task it can be seen through tracking the brainwaves. For example, struggling to focus when trying to do school work worrying when it’s time to fall asleep, are signs that the brain is stuck in habitual patterns and not in alignment with current needs.
Only recently has the speed of computing technology reached a level that neurofeedback devices could be created because the brain performed functions much faster than computers could track. Now, as there is hardware that can run at the speed of the brain, its activities can be effectively tracked.
Benefits and Results of Neurofeedback
With neurofeedback sessions the individuals learn to reset those negative patterns, allowing them to better manage sleep, emotional regulation and improve cognitive fitness, such as focus and concentration.
The immediate benefits from neurofeedback sessions, typically noticed after one to three sessions include feeling calmer, more focused and for many, getting better sleep.
Neurofeedback Results In Children
In children, the results are primarily noticed in parents and teachers, although older kids with greater self-awareness do report noticing specific changes or they report liking neurofeedback but can’t specifically say why.
The benefits of neurofeedback for children include:
- Less fighting with siblings
- Better able to focus on school work
- Feeling less fearful
- Managing sleep and bed wetting
- Worrying less
The benefits for adults include:
- Sleep management
- School / academic performance
- Executive functioning
- Emotional fitness and resiliency
- Mental fitness for anti-aging
- Stress management
Why We Chose The NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Device
At our neurofeedback center in New York, we use the NeurOptimal system. In 2011, after 10 months of research, we decided on the NeurOptimal device because it met our needs to provide effective and safe neurofeedback while keeping the costs as low as possible.
The NeurOptimal system is a second generation neurofeedback. In the first generation, the skilled trainer would set protocols from a brain map taken of the client’s brain waves. The trainer sets protocols to encourage the brain to change its brainwave patterns to match those of a ‘normal’ brain. While effective, it has limitations such as not using real-time data about the brainwaves but relying on information from a brain map taken sometimes months before training sessions. Potential for creating side effects from over or under training was possible. It also proves difficult because it required guessing which maladaptive patterns to prioritize.
With the second generation NeurOptimal system, the advancements in computing power allowed the design of the system to shift, to be synchronized with how the brain optimizes its own performance. The software now uses real-time data from the brain to provide feedback, which is much more precise and valuable than using a QEEG or brain map that was taken months ago. The design is now fully automated and allows the individual’s brain to be the expert deciding how to use the information rather than an expert trainer setting protocols to force change. Thus allowing change to happen organically and minimizing unwanted effects.
Being fully automated and not requiring protocols to be set makes the home neurofeedback device a reality. This shift dramatically reduced the cost and made it affordable brain training for anyone to use.
Commonly Asked Questions about Neurofeedback
Is neurofeedback covered by insurance?
Individual health insurance companies determine what is covered and it varies policy to policy. Reach out to your insurance to inquire. The cost of renting a home neurofeedback device is approximately the same price as many co-pays, approximately $40/session.
Can neurofeedback be harmful?
The NeurOptimal neurofeedback system is not harmful. The FDA has approved it as a General Wellness Device, which means it is safe for consumers to use without the oversight of a healthcare provider. Learn how NeurOptimal works and why it is so safe.
What are the side effects of neurofeedback?
The NeurOptimal system has a non-invasive design. It does not force changes in brainwave patterns but rather works by giving the brain the millisecond-by-millisecond feedback about its maladaptive patterns so the individual brain can utilize the information to improve its own functioning.
An analog for the feedback process is seeing your reflection in a mirror. If you see your head is tilted you'll most likely automatically straighten it. NeurOptimal alerts the brain that it is doing something and each brain will decide how to use the information it is presented with, in order to optimize its own functioning.
The most common effect after a neurofeedback session is that clients report feeling calmer and relaxed. When clients have poor sleep hygiene and are exhausted they will often report feeling tired at the end of the session. This shift is a result of increased awareness and the client shifting out of a stress response. We coach these clients to pay attention to this shift as a communication of the need for more sleep.
What is NeurOptimal and how can neurofeedback training benefit you?
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, safe method for restoring serenity, peak performance, confidence and wellness back into your life. There are many positive outcomes when neurofeedback training was utilized with clients coping with feeling overwhelmed, performance anxiety, struggling with good sleep habits.
