Are you or your child struggling with ADHD? Neurofeedback Training might be the answer.
What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, teaching it to focus more efficiently. This technology helps with concentration and attentional problems by retraining brain waves to sustain attention and improve processing.
The brain is constantly transmitting signals every second called brainwaves. These waves can be monitored and recorded using an EEG, an electroencephalogram. During neurofeedback, sensors are placed on the scalp and then connected to sensitive electronics and computer software that detect, amplify, and record specific brain activity. Traditional neurofeedback is done in the office, usually with video games as feedback which are controlled by brain activity.
The EEG shows wavy lines with peaks and valleys and allows doctors to assess abnormal patterns. EEGs are often used to rule out conditions like stroke, memory problems, seizure disorders, head injuries, and sleep disorder. They can also be used to help detect alertness and attention in real time.
Neurofeedback is a fun, painless and stress-free treatment. Patients can expect to enjoy the treatment by playing a video game of their choice.
