Introduction: Also known as EEG or Biofeedback, Neurofeedback is a therapy utilized to help people recover from a variety of conditions and chronic syndromes by training brain activity to respond positively or negatively according to the patient's desired response. According to the Brian Othmer Foundation, Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation, "Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better."

The Effectiveness of Neurofeedback

By applying electrodes to the scalp, we are able to monitor and read a patient's brainwave activity. Through this process, we are able to determine how the brain responds to certain activities. From that point, we can work with a person to help the brain respond in a more advantageous manner. Though neurofeedback cannot be considered a cure, it is a highly effective treatment for chronic conditions.
