Neurofeedback is effectively used to enhance performance. 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.Learn More
Neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, is a state-of-the-art therapeutic method of using biofeedback to help your brain learn to increase healthy patterns of functioning.Learn More
Brain injury is quite common, whether sports-related or from other activities. Symptoms occur across the entire range of function, including physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral domains. Recent studies have shown that concussion is far more common and more dangerous for future health than previously understood.Learn More
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.
Our clinical experience covers a broad range of symptoms including autism spectrum, ADD and hyperactivity, conduct problems, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, traumatic brain injury and many other dysfunctions that affect emotional and physical well-being.

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.

My name is Makenzie Mason. I’m a 19-year-old student athlete at the University of Florida, and I’m currently battling depression and anxiety. Back in early September, I chose to return home to Nashville to focus on my mental health because it was getting in the way of my ability to function. But when I got home I felt more hopeless than ever that recovery was possible for me.

When a parent and infant interact, various aspects of their behaviour can synchronise, including their gaze, emotions and heartrate, but little is known about whether their brain activity also synchronises — and what the consequences of this might be.

An individually optimized dynamic EEG reinforcement protocol has been recently extended to the domain of very low EEG frequencies, down to 0.01 Hz in center frequency of the reinforcement band. This represents a straight-forward extension to very low frequencies of a fairly generic training strategy that has been in productive use for many years. Improved clinical outcomes have been observed for a variety of hitherto intractable conditions, including the autistic spectrum, attachment disorder, eating disorders, and migraine conditions that have been refractory to prior neurofeedback.

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.

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.
After 1.5 years of CBT without improvement, we reached out to Dr. Lytel at the start of last summer in desperation for help with our then 7 year old son. He was wracked with general anxiety and negative thought OCD, to the point of being unable to get through basic daily tasks without breakdowns, if at all. Life was not enjoyable for him. It was excruciating for us to see as well. After a few sessions of neurofeedback there was noticeable improvement, and after just a summer of treatment there was a whole new version of my son returning to school! Happy, humorous, brave and confident he is now exploring all the world has to offer and finding his own unique talents and interests, including dance and performing! He is learning to tolerate, which is HUGE. As a friend of mine noted a few days ago, “it’s like he was stuck in a shell and has now emerged.” We couldn’t be more thankful!
“Delightful and focused boy, proud of what he can do. Really stable, slept well. Cheerful, articulate, and focused. Just wonderful.”
"I can’t say enough positive things about neurofeedback for my kids’ attention issues. Wish we’d found this years ago.”
B. has undergone so much progress. He just completed his freshman year achieving just above a 3.0 average with a very challenging curriculum, including advanced calculus. He got straight A’s in his major, computer science. With his former level of ADHD, this would have been unimaginable.”
“I can really feel the difference. My memory works better, I sleep better, and my anxiety calms down. I look forward to the sessions, which are always so pleasant.”
"Hi Judith! I just wanted to let you know that I just got back from 'the date' and I didn't get the slightest bit anxious. You must be a wizard or something!! I'm nearly giddy right now! Thank you so much."
Sends photo of smiling son: "First time ever performing on stage. Totally amazing that he did this. A proud and happy boy. Thank you for all that you are doing to help him. You have made a tremendous difference."

"Delightful and focused boy, proud of what he can do."
"Really stable and focused. Just wonderful."
"Slept well. Cheerful and articulate."
"We had an unusually nice evening with him. He was interested in connecting and helping in the house".
"Very sweet last nite, even saying sorry for little things ...never did that before"
"Overall, much calmer, thank you!"
"Nice work with [Xxx], what a doll he has been since his last session with you. Polite, communicative, even-keeled. Everything has improved!!!!!'
"He is pleasant to be around, and showing more self-awareness"
