What is Neurofeedback?
nctNeurfeedback is a brainwave training method used for many modes of self improvement. The nctNeurofeedback clinic specializes in training children and adults with challenges such as ADD/ADHD, ODD, anxiety, PTSD, sleep issues, emotional disregulation and more.
Neurofeedback is a type of brain training that acts as a reward system for the brain to restore your brainwave patterns to a more optimal range of functioning. It is a non-invasive treatment that works toward improving the source of your unwanted health symptoms.
Neurofeedback training aims to train users to achieve self-regulation of specific neural activity through real-time feedback (Kim and Birbaumer, 2014; Sitaram et al., 2017). This learning process is grounded in operant conditioning (or reinforcement learning) such that desired brain activity is rewarded (Ros et al., 2014).
Neurofeedback uses realtime displays of electroencephalography (EEG) or hemoencephalography (HEG) to illustrate brain activity and teach self-regulation. EEG neurofeedback uses sensors that are placed on the scalp to measure brain waves, while HEG neurofeedback uses infrared (IR) sensors or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure brain blood flow.
