Overview

In neurofeedback training, sensors are placed on the head for monitoring brain waves. You made to watch a video or listen to music while the computer measures your brain wave processes. When the brain produces waves that are balanced in nature, the computer gives a ‘reward’ to the brain in the form of cheerful sounds. On the other hand, when the brain waves get too high, the sound of the music is decreased or the video you are watching is dimmed. The brain understands both the feedbacks and begins craving for the positive, rewarding feedback, thereby adjusting itself to stay in balance. In this way, the brain learns to function more optimally, which reduces your vulnerability to depression and anxiety. Neurofeedback can especially be useful for PTSD as it helps, on rebalancing brainwaves, to stop the brain from continually being in a fight-or-flight mode, to help the patient feel calmer and more in control of their emotions, to teach the brain to relax, and improve their quality of sleep.
