Your brain is your master regulator. Every body function, everything you perceive, think, or do, everything that you feel, has to happen in your brain for it to happen at all.
That is it's function. Your brain makes You happen the way that you do. Learn more in these videos:
Neurofeedback LISTENS to the brain and allows it to have a real-time look at how it is doing -- for the first time in your life. Brain then uses that information to adjust its responses that have been over-excited or under-stimulated. That adjusts how you experience the world and how you act in it.
EEG neurofeedback is brain-training in self-regulation. In other words, neurofeedback takes advantage of the brain's natural neuroplasticity by providing the brain with the information it needs to better coordinate its activities.
As brain self-regulates with real time feedback, many
dis-abilities may improve. This has been called "The Goldilocks Effect" by Dr. David Kaiser: Mood, thoughts, pain, and processes (like sleep and appetite) can "learn" how to re-regulate, and the world can become an easier place to manage -- and enjoy! That makes sense because brain is improving its own experience and ability.
Even the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends neurofeedback as a "Best Practices" Intervention for ADHD. So neurofeedback is beginning to become a mainstream treatment to replace treatment with addictive drugs.
If you take a moment to think about it, most medication doesn't really repair or restore anything. It treats symptoms, and the symptoms return when the medication wears off. Medication also causes side-effects that can be worse then what it is designed to treat! (In fact most families will agree that the side-effects of ADHD meds, for example, are horrible both on a physical and personal level.)
With neurofeedback, you can give your brain the information it needs to make you more efficient, healthier, calmer, and more connected and at ease in the world.
Train your brain with low frequency, high definition neurofeedback -- the latest development in neurofeedback technology:
We offer two types of training paradigms: One does difference training, so the signal we observe reflects amplitude and phase differences the two sites we are monitoring. The other type trains inter-site synchrony.
Even after decades of study, it is not fully understood how the brain reacts to the training signal (just as nobody fully understands how aspirin works), but we do understand that we are prompting the brain to alter the coordination between the two sites being monitored. The response to the change involves the whole brain, and that accounts for the breadth of the impact of neurofeedback training.
Study after study from major universities reports improvements in attention, intelligence, thoughts, mood, and self-control. And low-frequency neurofeedback is now helping a wider spectrum of challenges than traditional neurofeedback.

BRAIN EXERCISES vs NEUROFEEDBACK
Brain can learn from brain exercises. It can add new specific abilities and talents. Studies show that the learning from brain exercises may not generalize beyond the design of the exercise.
Just doing another Roku or Crossword puzzle does not do much to enhance the brain, however.
The difference between brain exercises and neurofeedback is that neurofeedback teaches the brain about its own function and allows it to self-regulate. Neurofeedback is not specifically skill-building, but can allow the brain to learn to regulate certain functions so that some skills may become easier. For example, dyslexia may resolve, or appetite control may turn on. (During my first session, my sense of smell returned.)
So brain games and neurofeedback training are not the same, but they may be complimentary.
