  • Neurofeedback

    I have started a neurofeedback treatment mainly out of curiosity

    Has anyone ever done it before?

          Basically you sit in a chair and watch some graphics on a computer screen while listening to music.

          Actually my mom made me go because she swears by it, otherwise I wouldn't be spending my money on this.

          I'm not too sure it works, but the technology aspect of it interests me since I'm a computer science major.

            Actually, the research on it is pretty sound for some things. Relaxation is the most common. Biofeedback has also been effectively used for chronic pain, muscle retraining after injury, and even post-pregnancy incontinence.

              What about general improvement in brain function?

                ya... "brain function" isn't like that. Improved memory, improved auditory processing, improved visual processing, improved tactile processing, improved motor control, ect are all achievable, but you can't really improve "brain function" in any way.

                The exception would be if you had a condition that had affected the nerve conduction, like MS or a deficiency of DHA, you could work on those with drugs or supplements. but neurofeedback isn't gonna fix those kinds of problems.

                  I don't have any problems, but the doc said it would help me a lot since I'm taking so much math and programming courses this semester. She said there has been research done on neurofeedback and SAT scores.

                    yup, that's about concentration/focus and analytical skills

                      I found a very interesting web site full of articels and videos about neurofeedback therapy:
