Neuro Feedback Perth
What is Neuro feedback?
Neuro feedback (also termed electroencephalogram EEG biofeedback) is a form of brain exercise to help train the brain to perform more effectively. This is done with the help of of a trained technician who will be monitoring your brain waves alongside you. Receiving the information and feedback from the video, a person can gain better control over their brain states.
The goal of Neuro feedback is to gain access the the bio-electrical function within the brain which reveals important information regarding the brain’s internal regulatory networks at a subconscious level. Overtime, Neuro feedback could help train the brain’s functional dysregulation, stability and function. The changes to the brain can be beneficial for certain deficits and conditions.
Common Questions Regarding Neuro Feedback
As Neuro Feedback can be a new concept to some, we’ve detailed a list of common questions regularly asked by patients.
Can Neuro feedback cure symptoms or conditions?
Neuro feedback aims to get the brain to function at a better level than curing organic brain disorders. When a condition stems down from dysregulations, the improved self-regulation gained from Neuro feedback can help.
What can I expect from Neuro Feedback?
Neuro feedback is unique in a sense that patients normally receive a number of benefits.
- Sense of calmness
- Mental Clarity
- Improved Focus
- Reduced Anxiousness
- Better Working Capabilities
- Improved Motivation
- Improved Decision Making
How long does a session go for?
An initial consultation goes for around 1 and a half hours. The technician will introduce you to the concept of Neuro feedback as well as obtain information from a detailed questionnaire.
Subsequent sessions last for 45 minutes and can be conducted as often as your personal schedule allows.
How is Neuro feedback conducted?
Special EEG sensors are connected to the scalp to help detect your brainwaves. The sensors are then connected to a computer that will process the brainwaves and extract the necessary information. The information is then shown as electro bio feedback and the flow of it is translated into a video game for viewing.
Who can benefit from Neuro feedback?
Individuals of any age can benefit from biofeedback and EEG training.
Anybody can benefit from Neuro feedback.
Individuals Having Issues with the following can benefit from Neuro feedback:
- Sleeping Disorders
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorders
- Anger Management
- Self Esteem Issues
- Behavioral Problems
- Addictions (Alcoholism, Drugs)
- Learning disorders (ADHD, Reduced Focus)
- Mental Blocks
What happens if I am taking medication?
It is important that patients communicate with their doctors or psychiatrist that they are undergoing Neuro feedback.
If neuro feedback is completely successful, the brain can take over the role of self regulation and function. Medications may be required still at a lower dose or be completely ceased if the issue is resolved.
