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.
Neurofeedback LISTENS to the brain and allows it to have a real-time look at how it is doing that for the first time in your life. Brain then uses that information to adjust its responses that have been over-excited or under-stimulated. EEG neurofeedback is brain training in self-regulation.
As brain self-regulates with real time feedback, many
disabilities improve, moods stabilizes, thoughts become more useful, and the world becomes an easier place to manage -- and enjoy! That makes sense because brain is improving its own experience and ability.
This is why the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends neurofeedback as a "Best Practices" Intervention for ADHD.
That's the same approval level as for prescription ADHD medication...but medication doesn't really repair or restore anything. In fact most families will agree that ADHD meds are horrible both on a physical and personal level. The side-effects of stimulant drugs rob families of precious years of enjoyment.
"The Brain is a control system...it's fundamental responsibility is to assure its own unconditional stability."
--Siegfried Othmer, EEG Institute.
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.
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 be affected. For example, dyslexia may resolve, or appetite control may turn on. During my first session, my sense of smell returned.
So the two processes are not the same, but they may be complimentary.
Train your brain with LOW-FREQUENCY, HIGH DEFINITION NEUROFEEDBACK, the latest development in neurofeedback technology:
Study after study from major universities reports improvements in attention, intelligence, mood, and self-control. And low-Frequency Neurofeedback is now helping a wider spectrum of challenges than traditional neurofeedback.
