Neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy are also known as neurofeedback. It is often suggested for adults and children with ADHD, Attention Deficit Disorder, learning disabilities and sensory processing disorder. Neurofeedback therapy and training typically involves using three sensors, some types of neurofeedback use a full mesh cap and nineteen sensors on various locations on the head and ears.
For neurofeedback, there are three sensors. One sensor is placed on the ear and the other two are positioned on the scalp at specific locations determined by the information from the brain map or QEEG.
The client sits at a computer station with two monitors and a technician or neurotherapist assisting in the neurofeedback therapy. After taking an initial brain map reading of the client’s brainwaves, goals are set to increase or decrease a particular frequency. These goals pertain to something the brain needs to work on, for example relaxing or focusing.
Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will. Some of the processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception.
Biofeedback may be used to improve health, performance, and the physiological changes that often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Eventually, these changes may be maintained without the use of extra equipment, even though no equipment is necessarily required to practice biofeedback.
