What Is Neurofeedback?
A non-invasive, drug-free approach, Neurofeedback (NFT) is a tool through which we can retrain the brain to respond and regulate itself more effectively . Just as exercise can improve our performance and enhance the strength of muscles, neurofeedback can do this for the brain.
Our brains are highly capable of change, and it is this ability to change and adapt that NFT leverages. This allows us to redirect and relearn behaviours.
How Does Neurofeedback Work?
Our neurofeedback clinicians in Bathurst utilise state-of-the-art technology to monitor your brain waves and other forms of biological feedback (or biofeedback biofeedback) while you undertake a set task. This careful monitoring provides key insights that then allow us to tailor your therapy plan for the best approach and outcomes.
You will be tasked with completing an activity such as paying attention to images or movies on a screen or playing a simple video game , and on completion, should your brain waves remain within normal range, there will be no interruptions to what you are doing. Conversely, should your brain waves shift to an abnormal range, the activity will become interrupted by a form of stimuli, such as a beeping sound.
Over time, this teaches your brain that keeping a normal range neurological response generates positive outcomes.
Neurofeedback Vs Biofeedback
Where biofeedback involves the assessment of your physiological state such as your perspiration, temperature, muscle tension and heart rate, neurofeedback is solely focused on brainwaves. We can consider Neurofeedback as biofeedback for the brain, where the information it provides supports us to better personalise your therapy.
Neurofeedback may be highly beneficial for those experiencing these difficulties and is also effective at supporting those within the academic, corporate, and athletic sectors to increase their performance.
Possible Side Effects of Neurofeedback
After initially undergoing neurofeedback in Bathurst, it is possible to feel tired, anxious or have a headache. This is simply the brain’s response to all that intensive exercise.
The good news is that these symptoms dissipate rapidly at the close of your session and will often dissipate over time with additional sessions. If you experience ongoing symptoms or have concerns, we encourage you to speak with your practitioner for neurofeedback in Bathurst.
