Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, is a non-drug treatment which belongs to a group of therapies called biofeedback. Neurofeedback has been used in clinics for decades to successfully treat various conditions, including ADD/ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, traumatic brain injuries, and others.
Neurofeedback therapy from home:
Neurofeedback can be done remotely using a wearable device and a mobile app while your clinician monitors your brain activity and progress remotely. By downloading the Myndlift app and using a Muse headset, you’ll be able to train remotely with close clinical supervision.
What is used in the training?
Myndlift neurofeedback training requires an EEG headset that is placed on the head. Once connected, you can start playing games that are controlled by your brainwaves. Through playing these games, your brain will learn to better regulate itself.
Is neurofeedback safe?
Yes. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive technique which helps a person learn how to control, or self-regulate, their brain waves. The headset is simply used to listen to and record the brainwaves, it doesn’t transmit or otherwise change anything in the brain. Through the process of simply wearing the headset and playing the games the brain will teach itself to better regulate its activities.
What is the evidence behind neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback was first discovered in the 1950’s as a form of operant conditioning, in which the brain changes its activities as as result of stimuli, or positive or negative feedback. See more information on research in this webpage.
Myndlift Neurofeedback is therapist-guided, which means clinicians provide personalized supervision, whether in-clinic or remotely.
