How does Neurofeedback work?
During a Neurofeedback training, electrodes, that measure the brain activity, are placed on the head of the patient. During 30 minutes the patient will be watching a movie or listening to music. Through The measurements taken by the electrodes recorded and simultaneously shown on a computer screen.
When the patient concentrates and produces corresponding brain waves, the sound of the movie will remain audible and the image will keep on moving. And so the appropriate brain activity will be rewarded. When the patient starts daydreaming for example, the movie will slow down and the sound will drop. The ability to hold attention will thereby slowly start to develop.
After a certain amount of sessions the brains will have learned to produce durable and relevant brainwaves.
