  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) January 18, 2012 - What is Neurofeedback?

    Neurofeedback therapy involves the direct training of brain function, through which the brain learns to function more efficiently. At Cognitive Solutions, we observe the brain in action from moment to moment, and show that information back to the person. Through visual and auditory feedback, the brain is rewarded for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. This is a gradual learning process, and applies to every aspect of brain function that we can measure. Neurofeedback is sometimes called EEG Biofeedback, because it is based on electrical brain activity (electroencephalogram or EEG). Neurofeedback is essentially training in self-regulation. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function, and self-regulation training allows the the central nervous system to function at optimal levels.

    Who might benefit from Neurofeedback?

    Neurofeedback addresses most problems of brain disregulation. These happen to be numerous, and include the anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits and learning problems, behavior disorders, sleep disorders, migraines, as well as PMS and emotional disturbances. Neurofeedback is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy.

    How does Neurofeedback work?

    At Cognitive Solutions Learning Center, all incoming patients first undergo a Quantitative EEG (QEEG) or "brain map" in order to map out the electrical activity in each region of the brain. Following this diagnostic procedure, a thorough feedback and explanation of findings is provided. For the treatment itself, we apply electrodes to the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity. This information is processed by computer, and we then extract data about certain key brainwave frequencies. We show the ebb and flow of this activity back to the patient, who attempts to change the activity level. Some frequencies we wish to promote, while others we wish to diminish. This information is presented to the person in the form of a video game or movie, and the patient is effectively playing the video game with his or her brain. Eventually the brainwave activity is "shaped" toward more desirable, more regulated performance. The frequencies we target as well as the specific locations on the scalp where we listen in on the brain vary from patient to patient. The training is very specific to the conditions we are trying to address.
