What is Neurofeedback used for?

Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the long-term success of neurofeedback in treating attention disorders (AD/HD and all of its subtypes), with improvements equivalent to that from stimulant medication. In fact, individuals with attention disorders often become completely free of medications such as Ritalin. In addition, there is a wealth of evidence to indicate the effectiveness of neurofeedback when used to reduce or eliminate seizures, and symptoms related to other organic brain conditions such as autism spectrum disorder.  As neurofeedback addresses problems of brain dysregulation (by correcting abnormal brain waves), this technique is also used to remediate the effects of particular psychological illnesse

s and disorders that may be associated with abnormal brain wave patt erns including: traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addictions, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression.

Neurofeedback is increasingly used for stress-management and cognitive enhancement. It is now becoming popular for professionals and executives, athletes and other sportspersons, artists and musicians, etc. to use neurofeedback for peak performance*; to enhance focus and creativity, and further improve their capabilities. In addition, neurofeedback is also used to minimise age-related cognitive decline (e.g. increasing memory capacity).

The effectiveness of neurofeedback has been well-documented by scientific research. Furthermore, no lasting negative effects of neurofeedback training have been reported. Neurofeedback therapy is completely safe and non-invasive. In fact, many doctors and psychologists have incorporated or consistently recommended neurofeedback as part of the treatment for their patients. Here in the UK, PeakMind works in partnership with a leading assessment centre for ADD/ADHD, providing neurofeedback services for a large number of patients­­.  At PeakMind, our experience using neurofeedback has been very positive. Neurofeedback training is generally agreed to achieve a 70% (approx.) success rate, whereby 4 out of 5 individuals will be able to effectively self-regulate their brain activity for optimal functioning. Hence the majority of brains, regardless of the level of function, can be trained to function better!
