What is Neurofeedback????.

Train your mind while watching a movie!

Neurofeedback is an innovative and exciting therapy alternative to help relax our minds and organize our thoughts!  The science is blossoming for the field of mind entrainment, with over 300 published articles in the past 5 years referring to neurofeedback as a suitable therapy added to any traditional treatment approach (NCBI.org). Neurofeedback has shown great success in addressing key symptoms of ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, depression, substance abuse and many other psychological ailments.  In a recent series of studies looking at the effectiveness of neurofeedback for ADHD in children, it was shown that over 70% of children obtain some level of improvement as measured by TOVA (the most widely accepted test of ADHD severity).

Neurofeedback is fun, painless, and a great alternative approach to medication management alone. All you have to do is sit back, relax, focus on breathing and watch a movie!  Its as simple as that. Movies are a great instrument in neurofeedback, since they allow your child to focus on something they enjoy and can hold their attention! As you or your child watch a movie, Tiny microphones (electrodes) are placed on the scalp, over a region of the brain being trained. As you or your child watches the movie, the computer can receive in real time the activity pattern of your brain, process the data, and give you feedback on how it’s performing! The feedback comes in the form of the television screen getting brighter and dimmer or the music fading in and out. Over time the brain actually recognizes the pattern of brightening and dimming on the television screen or volume modifications from the music player, and will begin to change its own activity pattern as it receives the “feedback” from the TV. This is a form of training known as “Operant Conditioning” and has been performed since the late 1960’s.
