The collection of metrics of this activity is carried out through electrodes located on the scalp in a non-invasive way, since these electrodes only work by collecting information on the activity. This information is then processed through a computer program generating a feedback on which the person issuing the activity can act thus facilitating the brain’s ability to self-regulate.
An interesting way to visualize the operation of this technique is to place ourselves in a dance class and imagine the difficulties that would exist if it did not have mirrors (feedback), it would be very difficult to perform the movements correctly. Neurofeedback acts as a mirror for our brain.
The characteristics of this technique are:
Our brain is highly dynamical system, it performs readjustments constantly depending on the stimuli which it receives.
Neurofeedback trains that function of self-regulation to keep our brain activity within the most suitable limits so that we can face the changes that we live daily in an optimal manner, without suffering.
Since our brain controls all our organism, with Neurofeedback we can achieve a substantial improvement both psychologically and physically.
In a first session, one of our Neurofeedback specialists makes a detailed interview with you to find out your habits, problems, goals, etc. This meeting provides the necessary information to personalize your treatment.
After determining your objectives and goals, the frequency of sessions and the duration of treatment is established.
During a Neurofeedback session, you will sit on a comfortable chair and focus on some images presented on a screen while your brain electrical activity (EEG) is recorded. The characteristics (speed, sharpness …) of the images that you are watching (film, game …) are modified according to the recorded brain activity so that the system will promote the desired activity.
Neurofeedback is a technique applicable to any aspect of brain function which can be measured. It is used in the improvement of various disorders or problems, such as: anxiety, migraine, phobia or stress. Other disorders that can be treated are autism, post-traumatic stress, anorexia and bulimia, depression, insomnia, etc.
