Overview

Neurofeedback, also called neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, is a method for training the brain’s wave patterns to show more desirable patterns. It involves learning for the brain, like any other skill, in which the brain is given instantaneous access to feedback about changes in its electrical activity. When the brain produces the desired wave patterns, it is rewarded, whereas when it doesn’t, it goes unrewarded. In 20 neurofeedback sessions, with the brain receiving feedback every half second, it ends up getting 72,000 chances to learn the desired pattern, which is a lot of repetition and practice. This repetitive practice helps the brain reshape itself with the desired brain wave patterns that are associated with mood stability.

Neurofeedback is recommended to be a supplement to medications and psychotherapy, and not as a replacement. For many patients with bipolar disorder, maintaining long-term medications that help maintain mood stability remain a difficulty; for these patients neurofeedback training in addition has helped them feel more stable, thus requiring lesser medications.
