â€œMind over matterâ€ means that what we think is standing in our way, and if we limit ourselves, out of fear of making a mistake, we may miss opportunities. Our brain, a complex and extraordinary muscle, allows us to do amazing things, but limits us when it feels it needs to protect us.
With the use of neurofeedback a person is able to free up their mind from the emotions and limiting attitudes that limit our potential. By changing our brainwave patterns that keep us stuck in behaviors that hinder our ability to move on we can open up a whole new world to our potential.
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that has been in use for over 30 years in order to improve memory and brain functions, curtail emotions, and boost self-awareness. Specialized monitoring equipment is used, in a non-medical and non-medical way, to free the mind of negative responses and re-teach the brain. It is a form of self-regulation of the brain to improve memory function and enhance learning, empowering a person to focus on improving the physical as well as mental goals.
EEG (Electroencephalogram) Biofeedback or Neurotherapy uses auditory and visual feedback of information when the brain is making too many changes. Any burst of ampage will interrupt the feedback and allows the brain to take note of a change in mental state. The two basic brain states: alert and focused; and relaxed; are then reinforced.
Neurofeedback is painless. Sensors are applied to the head and a computer measures progress. Some would liken it to a childâ€™s â€œpotty-trainingâ€- learning how to control their organs through reinforcement like praise from the parents. An adult neurofeedback subject learns to control their behavior through signals at a frequency level set by the lab technician. A picture will move before the subject on the screen when the music is turned off, giving positive reinforcement or praise.
Over the years this process has been very successful in the treatment of such disorders as panic attacks, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, ADD/ADHD and brain injuries. Athletes have even used neurofeedback in training and before a big event to achieve peak performance. And even more gratifying, marked improvement has been shown in patients with autism or Aspergerâ€™s syndrome in attention, communication, socialization and recall as a result of the neurofeedback treatments.
This is Ron White, I am fascinated by the use of modern technology to do wonders for brain conditions, including the ability to improve your memory.
