Neurofeedback (NFB), is a type of biofeedback that teaches the brain to stay calm and focused.

Neurofeedback is also known as EEG Biofeedback and is offered as a complementary treatment option for issues such as addictions, anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, eating disorders, and mood disorders.

A typical session begins with a thorough assessment. The person then sits in a chair facing a laptop screen.  The laptop is connected to electrodes applied to the scalp.  Special software monitors the brain’s electrical activity, focusing on the theta and beta waves. The rhythmic patterns of the theta and beta waves reveal when the brain is focused and attentive.  The computer software looks for these desirable brain wave patterns and adjusts the image on the screen to show the individual how they are doing. For example, when the brain is responding correctly, the image may show pleasant pictures like flowers blooming and play happy music or bird song. When the brain becomes distracted, the screen may turn gray and alert the individual to try harder and focus.

It takes time to for people to learn to control their brain wave patterns.  Over time, the brain begins to associate certain pleasant images or sounds as a reward for good behavior.  After training ends, it is hoped that the results from training will continue and the person’s ability to focus and regulate their behavior will be improved.
