The Neuroconnection | Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback
The brain has no knowledge until connections are made between neurons. All that we know, all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.

Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback is a non-medication, non-invasive and painless intervention which has been proven to enhance neuroregulation and improve the brain’s ability to function optimally.

Training the brain with neurofeedback can result in dramatic and lasting improvement in a wide range of neuropsychological conditions, including:

Neurofeedback has been shown in many studies to be effective for both children and adults.  It can reduce or eliminate the need for medication, and no lasting adverse effects have been reported in research literature.

The approach meets the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s (AACAP) criteria for “Clinical Guidelines” for recommending evidence-based treatments. See Brown University publication.

How does neurofeedback work?

Brain waves are produced by electrical signals from neurons firing. They can be measured using an EEG amplifier and computer to show when optimum functioning is present. Neurofeedback induces change by showing the participant his/her brain waves in real time.

The participant is connected by sensors on his/her head to an EEG amplifier and a computer, then given auditory and visual feedback in the form of a computer game. When producing the correct brain waves, the brain on its own, seeks out these sounds and sights, and becomes “conditioned” to produce the correct brain waves more often.  Over time, this unconscious process makes changes in the brain wave activity, decreasing symptoms and producing desired states of functioning.
