How Does Neurofeedback work?

Training is administered using a reward system to reconnect the neural pathways. The patient relaxes in a sitting position while wearing a pair of photic stim glasses and monitoring leads attached to the ears and head. While watching a movie, the brainwaves are recorded and compared with an optimal brain signal. Any deviations from the
optimal signal will result in a pause in the movie. By refocusing attention on the movie, the patient is in fact helping to reconnect his or her neural pathways.

The Brain is a Learning Machine.

If you signal the brain with Photic stim lights, eventually the brain will learn to make normal brainwave patterns through guided feedback. Continuous feedback retrains the brain to reduce abnormal activity and stay within normal ranges. Eventually, the brain learns how to stay within normal ranges without Neurofeedback, and is able to sustain normal activity independently. This is achieved by reconnecting functional pathways in the brain.

How Long Does it Take?

Sessions are usually one to three times per week, although each person and situation is unique. Some receive benefit almost immediately, while others may need a series of sessions to stabilize their brainwave activity. The number of sessions depends on the type of problem, the age of the person, and many other factors.
In general, 20 sessions are given, with a brain map performed prior
to treatment and again after 20 sessions, depending on the total    number of sessions.
