What is the therapy like?

Neurofeedback treatment sessions typically last approximately 20 minutes, three times per week. During the therapy session, the patient performs a set of mental tasks and exercises while the system collects real-time information on the patient’s brain activity. Research suggests that most patients see significant improvement after 20 treatments, but severe cases such as stroke patients may require 30-60 treatments.

Is the therapy safe?

The BrainMaster system simply measures electrical impulses in the patient’s nervous system. No electricity flows from the electrodes into the patient.

 

Is neurofeedback new?

Neurofeedback was pioneered in 1924 by Hans Berger, a German psychiatrist. Neurofeedback became popular in the medical community in the 1960s and 1970s with Joe Kamiya’s work at the University of Chicago and with Barbara Brown’s work at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Sepulveda, California. The work of researchers throughout the 20th century shaped Neurofeedback into an effective therapy for a variety of brain-related conditions.
