What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time measurements of brain activity to help individuals learn to self-regulate their own brain activity. It is sometimes called “Neurotherapy”, “Neurobiofeedback”, or “EEG Biofeedback”. Neurofeedback works by providing feedback in the form of visual and/or auditory cues that are based on the user’s brainwave activity. Through the use of this feedback, individuals can learn to control their own brainwave activity and, in turn, their own mental and emotional states.
Use of Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback has been used to help people with a variety of conditions, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, sleep disorders, and autism. Neurofeedback has also been used to help people increase focus and concentration, improve memory, reduce stress, and improve overall mental and emotional well-being.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that is generally safe and well-tolerated. Neurofeedback sessions typically last 45-60 minutes and may require several sessions for optimal results.
It is approved By FDA
Neurofeedback has recently been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The FDA’s approval is based on a large body of research that has shown neurofeedback to be an effective treatment for ADHD.
In addition to its use in treating ADHD, neurofeedback is being studied for its potential use in treating a variety of other conditions, including depression, anxiety, autism, traumatic brain injury, and sleep disorders.
Neurofeedback is a promising treatment that can help individuals to improve their mental and emotional health without the use of drugs or invasive procedures. Neurofeedback is a safe and well-tolerated treatment that is based on the idea that the brain can be trained to self-regulate its own activity. With the FDA’s approval, neurofeedback is now more widely available and may help to improve the lives of many individuals.
