Definitions for "Neurofeedback"
EEG or brain wave biofeedback.
More than any other part of our body, our brain, provided with ongoing information or feedback, can train itself. Neurofeedback (also called EEG or Electroencephalogram Biofeedback) is a non-invasive learning strategy, which provides information about a person's unique brainwave characteristics, while training them to change their brainwave patterns. Neurofeedback is used as a method of relaxation, and to address many health concerns, some of which include ADD/ADHD, pain management, mental health problems, seizures, and sleep disorders.
a form of biofeedback which uses electrical signals from the brain detected by electrodes that are placed on the scalp. It is a painless and non-invasive exercise in which the person’s mental activity (brainwaves) are “fed back” to him or her via a computer. A coach trains the person how to change the activity of one’s brain in a desired way, and thus learn new behaviors. This way the person gains better control over his or her symptoms.
