    Q What is biofeedback?

    Biofeedback is a method of learning to self-regulate. The simplest form might be holding a thermometer in your hand. Tell yourself to warm your hands and watch the temperature increase. It works! With practice, you can learn to increase the temperature of your hands more and more. You can learn other biofeedback methods such as relaxing to slow your heartbeat. With advanced computer-aided biofeedback learning, you can learn increase or decrease vital physiological conditions.

    Q What is neurofeedback?

    Neurofeedback began in 1970 when Dr. M. Barry Sterman, a professor at UCLA, began training animals to do a task and receive a reward based on making certain brain conditions. In the 46 years since Dr. Sterman’s first studies, there have literally been thousands of research articles about the process he first described. These articles demonstrate the positive impact of training the brain to re-regulate.

    The method is also called EEG Biofeedback. It uses automatic conditioning to enable a person to learn to change the way the brain operates simply and easily. Think of it this way: you were not born with an automatic reflex to put your foot on the brake when another car suddenly pulls out in front of you. You were not born knowing how to play Mozart on the piano. In both cases, you practiced and learned the task. With neurofeedback, you learn to do a task by guiding your body and your brain to do the task at hand. Neurofeedback is training the brain to re-regulate itself as it was created to do. The training is automatic as the brain naturally moves toward regulation.

    Q How is neurofeedback done?

    It is a non-invasive procedure, so there’s no blood, and no pain. A set of electrodes is placed on your head with a mousse-like gel placed at each site. During the training, you watch an educational DVD that flickers along with a bell ringing. The flickering and the bell automatically train your brain to regulate. A session lasts about 55 minutes. At the end of session, most people feel relaxed and calm. After a few sessions, many people say something like, “This noise is quieter,” or “My windshield is clean,” or “I am sleeping more soundly,” or “My thinking is clearer.”
