Exciting convergence of various scientific studies over the past few decades show
The brain has plasticity/new pathways can form. If a person can manage to repeatedly exercise the use of a specific neural pathway new skills will develop.
Although the practices of meditation, yoga, T'ai Chi, mindfulness all greatly improve neural connections, the improvement is subjective.
However, with a computerised neurofeedback system the client receives standardised normative data on their abilities before and after a course of treatment.
Neural activity is precisely focused on certain areas of the brain and improvement is proven, measured and lasting. Imagine it as a personal trainer for your brain, as opposed to random movements trying to getfit.
Especially with children and teenagers, psychotherapy can be a very costly process, eg. spanning over 10 or more psychotherapy sessions. Treatment of anxiety, depression, feeling of overwhelm, ADD/ADHD, insomnia, temper outbursts etc. requires a certain level of insight from a child, as well as an ability to verbalise their feelings this should be followed by diligence in changing behavioural patterns or biofeedback exercises carried out at home. Few youngsters can follow this though, whereas a structured and individualised course of neurofeedback sessions show lasting and dramatic improvement.
Applications include chronic pain, brain injuries, brain deterioration, poor executive functioning such as planning, time management, fears and phobias, exam stress, dyslexia trauma and of course ADHD.
