Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity to teach self-regulation of brain function.
This ability to measure and monitor the brain’s activation level in response to different types of stimulation provides brain health clinicians insight into identifying pathologies, deficits, or deviations from the norm, and in turn, devise a brain training program of neuro-conditioning exercises.
Neurofeedback exercises are designed to target improvement in specific functional areas of the brain: motor planning, auditory imagery, expression, language comprehension, executive function, spatial orientation, or visual processing. Neurofeedback and neuro-conditioning can improve sleep patterns, help with anxiety and depression, and help relieve migraines or chronic pain. It can also be helpful in managing attention and emotions. Neurofeedback training can also be helpful in the treatment of seizures, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and autism.
