Whether receiving treatment at our office or using a portable home unit, each neurofeedback training session lasts approximately 30 minutes. A small amount of conductive paste is used to affix small sensors to the scalp at specific “focal sites.” In addition, metal clips are placed gently on the ear lobes. While the patient watches a show of their choosing on a TV screen, the sensors read brain activity and transmit this information to a computer that adjusts the image on the TV screen. Whenever the brain is functioning as desired, the image on the TV screen grows brighter and more audible. The brain responds to this real-time feedback by reorganizing itself in an effort to keep the video playing clearly. This process positively reinforces optimal brainwave patterns, creates new neural pathways, and trains the brain to consistently function in a healthier way.
