Think of your Neurofeedback training like holding up a mirror to your brain. Imagine you have not seen yourself in a mirror in a long time. Once you see your reflection, you naturally start adjusting yourself in real time: maybe standing a little taller, straightening up your hair and so on. The mirror provides the information you need to correct and adjust yourself. And so it is with the brain. Your brain has an inherent ability to self correct once given the right information.
What is Neurofeedback?
Dynamical Neurofeedback (or NeurOptimal®is an advanced technology designed to help train the brain to function at peak performance. It is used by business people, athletes, families, and students and is the global standard for human performance technology with millions of training hours logged all over the world.
This innovative form of neurofeedback is not a medical treatment, but rather a training tool for your brain. It was developed by clinical psychologist Dr. Valdeane and Dr. Susan Brown and has its foundation in the fields of neuroscience.
What a session looks like?
Each session is 33 minutes long and during this time you can choose to sit back and relax, read a book, study, work or even sleep — the training is equally effective.
The person is connected to the system by sensors that read the electrical activity of the brain (very much like an ECG for the heart). The software receives this information and detects any changes and electrical activity in the brain; then it presents this information back to the brain in real time, millisecond by millisecond.
What are the benefits?
Dynamical Neurofeedback is currently being used to help manage stress better, enhance learning capacity, improve focus, promote healthy sleep habits and manage performance anxiety. The list of what is possible is almost endless because the brain is so central to your experience of life. Brain training can have a positive impact on nearly every area of your life. The training responds to your unique brain activity; it tailors feedback to each person so results are unique to the individual.
