What is Neurofeedback Therapy?

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a technique that trains and regulates brain activity by giving individuals real-time feedback on their brainwaves. It is a non-invasive procedure that monitors brainwave patterns using an electroencephalogram (EEG) sensor. The feedback is typically provided through visual or auditory cues to help individuals learn how to self-regulate their brain activity. During a neurofeedback session, sensors are placed on the scalp to measure the electrical activity of the brain. The brainwave patterns are then analyzed and displayed on a screen in the form of a video, game, or sound. The individual is encouraged to make specific changes in their brainwave activity to achieve a desired state, such as reducing stress or improving focus.
