- What is Neurofeedback and How Does It Work?
Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, is a technique that trains and regulates brain activity by providing real-time feedback on brainwaves. It's a non-invasive procedure using an electroencephalogram (EEG) sensor to monitor brainwave patterns, with feedback often given through visual or auditory cues. This helps individuals learn to self-regulate their brain activity.
