Uses for Neurofeedback Training

Neurofeedback training offers a targeted, non-invasive method of addressing most mental health issues.  

Neurofeedback is a form of complementary therapy and should not be seen as a replacement for conventional medicine.  qEEG brain map-based neurofeedback training takes a more holistic approach to brain functioning, rather than just focusing on medical symptoms.  It is not intended as a form of diagnosis nor medical intervention nor medical advice per the disclaimer.

Get into the zone and fulfill your potential.

Pain

Neurofeedback for Chronic Pain, Migraines, Fybromyalgia, Headaches, Post-Injury Recovery, Traumatic Brain Injury.  

Feel yourself again, be in control of your body.

Sleep

Neurofeedback training aims to help the brain self-regulate better and improve sleep patterns and efficiency

Get the rest you deserve and feel fresh and excited.

Anxiety

Neurofeedback training calms the mind and soothes emotions.  Underlying trauma can be addressed and resolved subconsciously.

Break the cycle, Stop worries and calm the mind.

PTSD

Neurofeedback training calms the nervous system and helps resolve underlying trauma without re-living it.

Put experiences to rest and regain your confidence.

Emotional Balance

Neurofeedback training provides relief and stability while re-instating cheerfulness and lust for life.

Neurofeedback for depression and mood disorders.

Brain Self-Regulation is a necessary part of healthy brain function.  The key point is that brain dysregulation is the root cause of numerous problems, including anxiety, depression, attention deficit, various sleep disorders, headaches, migraines, chronic pain, panic attacks, asthma, emotional disturbances and behavioural disorder

Organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, as well as dyslexia and trauma-induced conditions such as PTSD can thus be addressed.  Neurofeedback training can also be applied to age-related conditions, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and stroke-related dysfunctions, with the goal of arresting and in some cases even reversing their progression.

 

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free training.

Sensors placed on the head simply measure brainwave activity, that is then processed real-time and shown back to the brain via a screen – this is the feedback the brain uses to improve self-regulation.

No electrical current is passed into the brain – the four electrodes placed on the head with a sticky, easily washable paste pick up electrical activity on the scalp (EEG) and feed this into an amplifier.  From the spectrum of brainwaves measured by these sensors, we can then dial into specific frequencies, like a radio, and show the brain what happens there.  With this information, the brain is able to improve its self-regulation.

Sessions take between one and two hours, ideally two to three times per week, over a period of two to three months.  Results are frequently observed in early sessions; further training helps the brain re-wire itself for sustainable progress.  

Brain Maps and Personalised Brain Training

Brain Maps show Character Traits

With a Kaiser Neuromap, we can identify character traits, vulnerabilities and strengths. 

This particular type of brain map shows us relevant information about functional connectivity between brain areas that govern our behaviour patterns.

For the purpose of Personalised Brain Training, we are interested in more persistent attributes than simply states.  Kaiser Neuromaps make these uniquely identifiable and meaningful.

Many Kaiser Neuromap EEG brain maps for neurofeedback

Every Brain is Individual.

A brain map is a way to break down the sources of behaviour patterns in a highly granular form and represents these visually. 

Kaiser Neuromaps reveal the maturity of over 50 Brodmann areas – each with specific functions and contributions to our preconscious interpretation of our surroundings and how we interact with them. 

Instead of categorisation, we get a unique and individual representations of a person’s needs and strengths, and can apply a personalised holistic training approach.

Personalised Brain Training is a neurofeedback training method devised by founders of the field, Barry Sterman and David Kaiser.  

Neurofeedback process illustrated by electrode measurement analysed and transformed into feedback via a movie in visual and auditory form for the preconscious mind to process and adapt its behaviour to in a learning process.

Personalised Brain Training with Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback training is a process where we give the brain feedback about its own activity at a particular cortical site in real time, via visual, auditory or tactile means. 

 There is no direct stimulus to the brain and the sensors attached are for measurement of cortical EEG, or tiny electrical currents detectable on the surface of our head.  

This signal is then amplified and analysed by software in real-time, and this information is used to provide auditory feedback to our brain via small changes in volume.  

Our pre-conscious mind responds to the feedback and corrects its behaviour while our conscious attention is focused on the reward – watching the movie at full volume

A learning curve is observable as the brain adopts new behaviour patterns.

 

Neurofeedback Training calms the mind and restores functionality

With neurofeedback training, we can restore functional connectivity and thus calm the mind.  

The ability to balance instinct with reason enables us to share realities when needed and thus perform better in groups while preserving our individuality.

We take a holistic approach to healthy brain self-regulation, rather than categorisation or diagnosis.  

Neurofeedback is evidence based therapy with a wealth of over 2,000 peer-reviewed research reports per PubMed neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is evidence-based.  It’s first application was discovered in 1971 when it was used to resolve intractable epilepsy. 

There are over 2,000 peer-reviewed research reports on PubMed demonstrating efficacy across a number of pathologies. 

In the US, it is an accepted complementary treatment for many issues. 

The Process:

Kaiser Neuromap qEEG recording forms basis for neurofeedback personalised brain training

A qEEG recording takes about 45minutes for a 20 minute recording.

We analyse the data with Kaiser Neuromap software which gives us a unique view into character traits and vulnerabilities.  

Findings are presented in a separate conversation with a training plan.

Following a Kaiser Neuromap we do Neurofeedback Personalised Brain Training

 We use a movie of choice as the feedback mechanism – our conscious mind engages with the film, and feedback is delivered by small changes in volume or picture size.  

Our pre-conscious mind adapts its behaviour to preserve the more comfortable volume and picture size, and learning occurs. 

Volume changes are slight, not stop-start, and the process is enjoyable. 

Capturing the ultradian cycle with neurofeedback Personalised Brain Training using Kaiser Neuromap

A two hour training session allows us to do 90 minutes of neurofeedback. 

This captures an entire ultradian rhythm cycle and corresponds to the approximate duration of feature film movies.  

We can start with shorter sessions as appropriate, mainly with children.

Ideally, we do three or more sessions per week to start with.  

We would expect to see responsiveness within the first few sessions and remap after twenty hours or about ten sessions.  

Generally, we would expect to doing twenty sessions over two months, though this can vary substantially. 

We can also accommodate intensives, where we do two sessions per day over a number of days, and have had good results with these.

Neurofeedback training relies on real-time EEG measurement, analysis and translation into feedback
