A Lifetime of Drugs or Guided Exercise For Your Brain? What Do You Want?
Before you can truly understand how BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy works, you first must understand how the brain works.
It is widely understood that the systems that govern the human brain are the most complex and compact on earth. In order for the brain to function optimally, the different parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly.
The brain accomplishes this communication by transmitting electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another. The electrical signals are expressed as brain waves.
Using non-invasive surface electrodes that are placed on the surface of the scalp, the BrainCore system is able to translate these brainwaves on to a computer screen for observation
BRAINCORE NEUROFEEDBACK TRAINING
A QEEG Report is the Key to Creating Your Neurofeedback Brain Training Sessions
Before you start the brain training sessions, a comprehensive assessment will be performed. This assessment procedure allows Dr. Wood to determine, in a scientifically objective manner whether your brainwave patterns are different from normal.
The assessment provides her with the neurofeedback training protocols that will be used during the training sessions. These protocols are designed to retrain the brainwave patterns toward normal.
As the brainwave patterns normalize, the brain is able to operate more optimally and efficiently. Once the protocols are determined you are hooked up to a computer using wires and sensors and the computer records your brainwave activity. These sensors are noninvasive, meaning there is no electrical current put into your brain. The sensors are there to simply record the brainwaves coming from your brain. Information about these brainwaves is displayed on Dr. Wood’s monitor.
The software automatically detects when the brainwaves are properly ordered and it feeds that information back to the patient. This feedback appears in the form of a game, movie, or sound which signals the patient that the brainwaves are becoming more ordered.
For example, a patient may be watching a puzzle of a picture that is being filled in piece by piece. As long as the patient’s brain waves are moving in an orderly direction, the puzzle pieces are filled in and the patient hears a tone. If the brainwave patterns move away from an orderly pattern, then the puzzle does not get filled in and no tone is produced. The patient is actually controlling the completion of the puzzle with their brain and by doing so; the brain is learning how to regulate itself.
In another design, the patient performs the training while watching a movie. In this case the patient may watch a DVD movie that is being controlled by their ability to regulate their brainwaves. The movie will get brighter as the brain waves normalize and become darker when they become dysregulated. The brain’s natural desire to watch the movie clearly will drive those neurological circuits that normalize the brainwaves and allow the picture to be visualized. The more those circuits are driven and used – the more neuroplastic changes take hold. The patient learns how to use those new circuits during the demands of everyday life.
