WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?

It is well known that brain functions depend on communication by electrical and chemical impulses between brain cells. These impulses create brain waves detectable by electroencephalographic examination.

Thus, the Neurofeedback is a technique based on the recording, analysis, and modulation of these brain waves in real time. Being a painless and non-invasive technique, it makes the cross between the individual's difficulties or symptomatology and their physiological reflection.

Neurofeedback quantifies and trains brain activity according to the brain waves expected for each individual considering their age and sex, promoting your capacity for self-regulation and minimizing or even remitting the identified dysregulations in the pattern of brain activity. This stimulates the brain to have a regulatory functioning and, as a result, the individual improves their physical and psychological well-being.

WHAT IS NEURO...?

Neurons are the main cells of the brain and play a fundamental role in all of its functions.

They work and communicate with each other through electrical impulses, producing brain waves that vary their voltage (measured in Hertz) and that can be divided into 4 main frequencies:
  • Delta Waves (1-4 Hz)
  • Teta Waves (4-8 Hz)
  • Alpha Waves (8-12 Hz)
  • Beta Waves (12-35 Hz)

HOW DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?

Neuronal activity is recorded using a quantitative electroencephalogram, which consists of recording brain waves through the use of harmless sensors placed on the scalp. Neurofeedback sessions are scheduled according to the conclusions drawn from this exam regarding the levels of dysregulation of the brain activity pattern and the desynchronization of the different brain areas.

Thus, in Neurofeedback sessions, the client is invited to watch a movie and/or to play through the mental state, altering their neural activity in an intuitive way. And whenever the Neurofeedback program detects any alteration in brain activity in the sense of regulation and synchronized communication, it will send “feedback” so that the customer realizes that the brain waves have reached the ideal value.

Over time, the The brain will try to reproduce the same brain wave to receive the said feedback again, learning to maintain the new pattern of brain functioning and to balance your performance, even outside of sessions.
