Neurofeedback is a highly effective DRUG-FREE method which attempts to train brainwave activity at the source of problems, not just their symptoms.

Neurofeedback has proven positive effects on:

What is Neurofeedback?

Brainwave training in progress

Neurofeedback is brainwave training, a personal tool for learning mental control and increasing stability. Electrical brainwave patterns, also called EEG or electroencephalograph, are recorded from electrodes pasted on your scalp. Different types of brain waves are associated with different mental states. This electrical brain activity is shown to you using specialized computer programs. This process is also called EEG biofeedback. The trainer adjusts reinforcement to optimize self-regulation, increase focus, and develop a more balanced emotional state.

What are the potential benefits of Neurofeedback training?

  • Enhance attention span and focus
  • Decrease anxiety and depression
  • Reduce irritability, mood swings
  • Diminish hyperactivity
  • Encourage friendships and socializing
  • Lessen chronic headaches
  • Optimize cognitive performance and motor skills
  • Normalize sleep

What happens if Neurofeedback clients are taking medications?

With successful neurofeedback training, medications targeting brain function may no longer be needed or they may be needed at lower dosages as the brain takes over the role of regulating itself. Neurofeedback takes longer to produce change but appears to give long-term benefits in all key areas of attention span, impulse control, academic achievement and social adjustment without the side effects of medication. Those on medication should be closely monitored by their physician as dosage changes may be indicated.

What are the research results?

80% of adults who received neurofeedback as children for ADD showed continued positive focus results in a three, five and ten year follow-up study. Decreases in impulsivity, distractibility and hyperactivity and increase in IQ have been documented in over 50 studies. As neurofeedback dramatically shifts the brain's arousal level modifying the usual response to fear, many intractable, brain-based emotional problems decrease.

Frank Duffy, MD, neurologist at Boston Children's Hospital, concluded after an independent review in 2000 of the research, "The literature, which lacks any negative study of substance, suggests that EEG biofeedback therapy should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used."

"In my experience with EEG Biofeedback and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEG Biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and aggressiveness. It is a powerful tool, in part because the patient becomes part of the treatment process by taking more control over his own physiological processes." Daniel Amen, MD

The A.D.D. Book

"Among the newer approaches to managing ADD, the most exciting is a learning process called Neurofeedback. It empowers a person to shift the way he pays attention. After more than 25 years of research in university labs, neurofeedback has become more widely available. This is a pleasing development, because neurofeedback has no negative side effects." William Sears, MD

"Numerous studies, many done by reputable universities and published in peer review journals, indicate that the technology of EEG Neurofeedback can produce measurable and positive changes in the ability of children and adults to control their attentional states. There is considerable evidence [of] permanent changes in the way the brain controls attention." Thom Hartmann

ADD: The 20-Hour Solution

...explains everything that parents of children or adults with ADD or ADHD need to know about how neurofeedback techniques work...

"I find this book on ADD extremely gratifying. Neurofeedback as a treatment modality for a wide range of psychiatric disorders has attained an increasingly sound stature in the scientific and clinical communities. Research has established its clinical efficacy in studies over the last three decades." Andrew Abarbanel, MD, Ph.D.

Why choose NeuroConnections - Center for Neurofeedback Training?

When I researched treatment options for my child a few years ago, I was impressed with neurofeedback testimonials. We began training in 2000 and noticed attention and sleep improved, anxiety decreased and ability to learn increased. The changes have held long term and I began serious study as a practitioner of neurofeedback.

In addition to my work as a certified school teacher, school guidance counselor, and vocational rehabilitation counselor, I have extensive clinical training in neurofeedback and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor(Associate). In my practice, clients report relief from symptoms of inattention, panic, depression, and headaches to name a few.
