What is Neurofeedback
Electroencephalography (EEG) neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback therapy which measures and records the brain waves. The user receives visual or auditory feedback which help to train the brain to better regulate its activity. Neurofeedback has been used in clinics around the world for decades, and clinical research has shown it to be effective in treating many neurological conditions with lasting results.
Neurofeedback can be done remotely using a wearable device and a mobile app while your clinician monitors your brain activity and progress remotely. By downloading the Myndlift app and using a Muse headset, you’ll be able to train remotely with close clinical supervision.
Remote Neurofeedback Equipment
Myndlift neurofeedback training requires an EEG headset that is placed on the head. Once connected, you can start playing games that are controlled by your brainwaves. Through playing these games, your brain will learn to better regulate itself.
Is neurofeedback safe?
Yes. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive technique which helps a person learn how to control, or self-regulate, their brain waves. The headset is simply used to listen to and record the brainwaves, it doesn’t transmit or otherwise change anything in the brain. Through the process of simply wearing the headset and playing the games the brain will teach itself to better regulate its activities.
What is the Evidence behind Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback was first discovered in the 1950’s as a form of operant conditioning, in which the brain changes its activities as a result of stimuli, or positive or negative feedback.
