HOW DOES IT WORK?

You sit in a comfortable chair at a monitor as a few electrodes are placed on your scalp to record your brain’s electrical activity. The therapist’s monitor displays the relevant sample of your brainwaves, which are digitized, amplified and translated by highly sophisticated software into a signal that drives a video game on your screen.

PEAK PERFORMANCE TRAINING

Peak performance is an easily recognized mental state where one is both focused and present. We have all had experiences of peak performance, but often they seem fleeting and not easily reproducible.

Neurofeedback is research-based brainwave training with an extensive history

Neurofeedback training helps people effectively modify and maintain new behaviors, without the undesired effects of medication. Also known as EEG biofeedback or neurotherapy, neurofeedback is a state-of-the-art technology that we use to offer a safe, highly effective method of brain training. Using EEG biofeedback, you can train your brain toward greater self-regulation, which has a beneficial effect on behavior, learning, emotion, and more. It is non-invasive, medication-free, easy to do, and even fun! Neurofeedback training can transform your life by helping you modify the brain dysregulation underlying many disorders and symptoms of mind/body.

How Exercise May Help the Brain Grow Stronger

by Gretchen Reynolds

Physical activity is good for our brains. A wealth of science supports that idea. But precisely how exercise alters and improves the brain remains somewhat mysterious.

A new study with mice fills in one piece of that puzzle. It shows that, in rodents at least, strenuous exercise seems to beneficially change how certain genes work inside the brain. Though the study was in mice, and not people, there are encouraging hints that similar things may be going on inside our own skulls.

Top 5 Ways Biofeedback Can Change Your Life

by Adi Jaffe Ph.D.

I’m a behavioral neuroscientist by training. This means that when I went to school at UCLA (Go Bruins!) I made it my focus to understand how neurochemical and neurophysical changes in the brain affect the way we interact with the world. At the time, I was primarily interested in how these things relate to addiction, but more and more I feel obligated to share the endless other ways this interaction is crucial for our wellbeing.

You see, everything that happens to us is, at its core, an interaction between the world and our brain in some way. This is true for your ability to read these words, tie your shoelaces, feel depressed or excited and even start walking. But as many of you who are reading these pages know, this world-brain interaction often leaves us wanting more.

  • “Neurofeedback: Significance for Psychiatry”
    By Siegfried Othmer, PhD This is the title of an article by Simkin and Lubar that recently appeared in Psychiatric Times. I suspect that much of it was written by Simpkin rather than Lubar because parts of it do not read like his papers. Also some of the content is... Read more »
