• Neurofeedback Training

    After 20 years of regular panic attacks, I thought it was normal to feel anxious! Neurofeedback training helped me to deeply experience being calm yet able to function…

  • Neuroplasticity

    According to the ATEC scoring, my son does not qualify anymore for autism. Yes, I agree with Normand Doidge:

    “…many ‘circuits’ and even basic reflexes that we think are hardwired, are not.”

Neurofeedback Training and Attention Inefficiencies

Attention inefficiencies can be observed in analysing the brain wave patterns of a quantitative EEG. Different patterns are found in individuals with attention difficulties. The most common pattern presents as an excess in the production of theta (slow waves characteristic of a drowsy mindset) in comparison to beta (faster waves characteristic of problem solving mindset).

For example, a person who studies in order to pass an exam or finalize an important project at work, will need to stay physically calm (SMR), not tune-out (keeping control on the theta brain waves), nor daydreaming (with the alpha waves in check) while sustaining an alert mindset to solve complex problems (accessing the beta waves). Balanced brain functions allow the person to better access their real potential.

Most individuals develop these functions of the central nervous system in the first years of life and fine-tune them after entering school. However, for different reasons, many people need help in order to achieve their real potential. They are often seen as low achievers. People that surround them know that the person is intelligent and capable, but the results may be lower than expected. The goal of the neurofeedback is to gain flexibility to access the right functions, at the right time, for the particular job.
