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. You play the game without a mouse, making it work entirely by brain activity.



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.



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.

Are You A New Patient?

Neurofeedback training helps

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. Neurofeedback is research-based brainwave training with an extensive history. 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

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.

  • When Studies Are Not Needed II
    By Siegfried Othmer, PhD In the August edition of Scientific American, professional skeptic Michael Schermer took on facilitated communication (FC) for autistic children, a tactic that had been thoroughly discredited in a Frontline piece on PBS back in 1993 entitled “Prisoners of Silence.” Sue Othmer and I had watched that...

  • When studies are not needed
    By Siegfried Othmer, PhD Recently a study showed that some people react badly to statins. Statins have been in use for twenty years, and if some people respond badly to them, then that has also been a fact for about the same number of years. So why was a study... Read more »
  • One Million!
    By Siegfried Othmer, PhD It is probably worth observing that sometime over the past several years the milestone was undoubtedly passed in which the one millionth person benefited from one or another of our neurofeedback protocols, implemented on one or another of our three generations of neurofeedback systems: NeuroCybernetics, EEGer,...

  • Placebo Puffery
    By Siegfried Othmer, PhD If the placebo is such a big deal, why is it not being diligently studied? Why is the ‘cause’ of the placebo ‘effect’ not being looked for? If this is such a huge factor that it governs all drug studies, surely it deserves some attention in... Read more »
