How Does BrainCore Neurofeedback Work?
Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, drugless method for teaching the brain to function in a more balanced and healthful way. A simple and pleasant learning modality that can help shift the way the brain produces and distributes its electrical energy. Four divisions of electrical impulses made by our brain, Delta, Theta, Alpha and Beta are called “Frequency Bands”. These Frequency Bands tell us which parts of your brain are active and which frequency bands the brain should be using to complete a given task, activity or should be most active during different states of mind.
Frequency Bands and Daily Life
During normal daily activities such as balancing our checkbooks or following directions in class, certain areas of our brain will need to be active and using the faster frequency called Beta. On the other hand, if after a long day we wish to relax and wind down, a different part of the brain will need to be activated using the slower brainwave frequency called Alpha. The goal of Neurofeedback is to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and smoothly shift between states of relaxation and arousal. Since the Brain also controls Attention Regulation, Emotional Regulation and Affect Regulation, this ultimately allows the entire Central Nervous System to resume normal functioning.
Who Benefits from Neurofeedback:
- Learning Disorders
- Memory Loss
- Peak Performance
- Substance Use Disorders
Produce The Right Signal at the Right Rate & Time
“Neurofeedback therapy takes abnormal brainwave patterns and makes them normal. When we have normal brainwave patterns, the brain is better to self-regulate itself….”
How many Sessions are required?
Everyone has a different situation, so we customize our recommendations per individual. For optimal results, we advise coming in twice a week for 20-60 sessions. Of course, we are flexible depending on your specific needs.
