What is neurofeedback and what does it do?
Neurofeedback brings more balance in brain activity. The brains of people provide brain waves. These can be measured with an Elektro Encephalogram or an EEG. People get electrodes on their heads and through these electrodes can be measured what electrical activity there is in the brain. In many disorders, activity in the brain is not as it should be. The balance is restored by people who do neurofeedback, to teach the brain to react differently. And that happens just by having them watch a movie. That film falters if the brain activity is not good. Brains, however, also want such a film to continue and respond to it. And thus the brains are trained so that they are in balance.
The operation of brain waves
Brain waves are very flexible and adapt to the circumstances. Whoever sleeps has slow brain waves, who does a strenuous job, has fast brainwaves. The brain is constantly switching, as it were, by using different brain waves in different situations. Those who have symptoms have brains that do not produce the brain activity that is necessary for that particular task or particular situation.
Reward brain activity with neurofeedback
In neurofeedback, the brain waves are first measured to see how they relate. It is clear that she is too fast or too slow in certain situations than by practicing regularly with the films trained in learning the desired brain waves so that the symptoms reduce or disappear. This will require a number of sessions. After a number of those sessions, the brain can then correct itself and use the right brain activity at the right moments.
Every condition in another part of the brain
Any condition is in another part of the brains, therefore advance a proper diagnosis is necessary, but also EEC must decide where the problem is located. Dyslexia, for example, is in a different area of the brain than, for example, fear. The EEG is looking at where the deviation is in the brainwaves or where the biggest deviation has settled.
What does neurofeedback help with?
Neurofeedback can help with a large number of complaints such as:
Anxiety and panic symptoms
Migraine / headache
