 What Can Neurofeedback Do For Me?

ImageWe all hear about innovative research and new information regarding the workings and secrets of the brain. We all want to keep our memories sharp over time, multitask, feel more organized, and have more control over our lives while feeling less stressed.

 For decades, a non-invasive, relaxing method has existed called neurofeedback. Neurofeedback was originally developed at the UCLA School of Medicine and is currently used world-wide to help children and adults with sleep, stress reduction, depression, and attention deficit disorder. In more recent years, neurofeedback has been used to improve learning difficulties, decrease symptoms of autism and help patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

The process of neurofeedback involves sensors placed on your head and connected to a recording instrument. This instrument is connected to a computer and shows your brainwaves on a screen. Nothing is ever sent to your brain through the…

Where Does Anxiety Come From?

… and WHY do we have Anxiety?

Hello my name is anxietyAnxiety is manufactured in the amygdala, a small part of the brain located behind our temples that is responsible for controlling emotions such as fear, anxiety, aggression and arousal.

When danger is immediate and requires a sudden response, the amygdala kicks into high gear, triggering an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, an elevation of blood sugar for quick energy, and a redistribution of blood from stomach organs to relevant muscles.

At the same time, the amygdala also blunts the human functions that are nonessential to immediate survival: digestion, salivation, urination, defecation, and sexual arousal. By ensuring negative emotions like fear and anxiety override less pressing thoughts and feelings, the amygdala creates a sense…

Brain gym – simple exercises for a better mind and body

Jane Alexander

A simple series of exercises could help your brain function better, making you sharper, smarter – and far more confident.  Brain Gym comprises very easy body movements which have been designed to coax the two hemispheres of the brain to work in synchronisation.

Apparently when our brains become balanced,  our whole bodies respond, revitalising our natural healing mechanisms, restoring health and harmony.   Brain Gym can do everything from speeding up your reading to boosting self-esteem.  It can improve your eyesight and even increase your creativity.   It gives you a cutting edge both in the office and in your personal life, improving communication skills, helping you make better decisions and even giving you a boost when you’re facing rejection or disappointment.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback is a process whereby a person can learn to change their brainwave patterns.

Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback. The brain learns to function with greater control and stability.

The procedure involves applying electrodes to the scalp to record brainwave activity. The computer processes the signal and information is extracted about certain brainwave frequencies. The frequencies that are targeted, and the specific locations on the scalp where brainwaves are recorded, are specific to the conditions being addressed and to the specific individual.

By addressing problems of brain disregulation, Neurofeedback can help individuals who suffer from a wide variety of disorders. These include:

  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Motor and Vocal Tics
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior
  • Asperger’s and Mild Autism
  • Seizure Disorders
  • Closed Head Injury
  • Stroke
  • Migraines
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Depression & Manic Depression
  • Intermittent…
