Traditional Neurofeedback involves direct training of brain wave function for the purpose of developing more efficient patterns of brain-wave activity. This improved self-regulation of brain-wave activity transfers into improved self-regulation of emotions, behaviors and cognitive functioning.
Traditional neurofeedback begins with a client interview. Then, depending on the client's symptoms, options are discussed as to which type of neurofeedback would be best for the client. With traditional neurofeedback, typically symptom-specific standard protocols are recommended .
During neurofeedback training, the client's brain-wave activity is monitored by placing sensors on the scalp. The client is then provided live, real-time "feedback" in regard to this activity. Depending on the type of neurofeedback being provided, the client may be engaged in various activities, such as playing a video game, practicing relaxation techniques, watching a movie or doing homework. The goal is to reward specific brain-wave activity so you can learn to produce more of this desired activity, when appropriate. Rewards are provided through auditory and/or visual feedback, depending on the particular training and client preferences. Over time, your brain associates the preferred brain-wave activity with positive outcomes, which makes the particular brain-wave activity more readily available when needed. Typically clients must attend multiple sessions over an extended period of time for lasting benefits.
Traditional neurofeedback is a non-evasive option that has been found successful for:
