What Does Neurofeedback Training Help With?

Posted on: November 7th, 2023 by Neurohealth Associates

Neurofeedback training, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a form of brain training that aims to help individuals self-regulate their brain function. While research on its efficacy is ongoing, some studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that neurofeedback training may have potential benefits for various conditions and cognitive functions. 

Let’s take a look at the areas where neurofeedback training has been explored:

ADHD

One of the most researched applications of neurofeedback is in the treatment of ADHD. Neurofeedback aims to improve attention, impulse control, and other executive functions associated with ADHD.

General Anxiety and Stress

Neurofeedback has been investigated as a potential intervention for anxiety disorders and stress-related conditions. The training aims to help individuals regulate their brainwave patterns, promoting a calmer state of mind.

Depression

Some studies have explored the use of neurofeedback for individuals with depression. The training may target specific brainwave patterns associated with mood regulation.

Sleep Disorders

Neurofeedback has been considered for improving sleep quality and addressing insomnia. The training targets brainwave patterns associated with relaxation and improved sleep.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Neurofeedback has been investigated as a potential intervention for individuals recovering from traumatic brain injuries. The training may aim to support cognitive rehabilitation.

General Cognitive Enhancement

Some individuals use neurofeedback for general cognitive enhancement, aiming to improve memory, attention, and overall cognitive performance.

Peak Performance Training

Athletes, musicians, and individuals in high-performance fields have explored neurofeedback for optimizing their performance by enhancing focus, concentration, and mental clarity.

Fields Neurofeedback Training is Still Working On

Continued research into neurofeedback and cognitive training programs was previously designed to enhance specific cognitive functions associated with ADHD and other common conditions. In recent years, however, neurofeedback training has been finding success with more specific conditions.

Epilepsy

Neurofeedback has been used as complementary training for individuals with epilepsy. The training aims to regulate brainwave patterns to reduce the frequency or severity of seizures.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

While research is ongoing, some studies have explored the use of neurofeedback in individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The goal is to enhance cognitive and behavioral functions.

Substance Use Disorders & Addiction

Neurofeedback has been studied as a part of comprehensive treatment programs for individuals with substance use disorders, aiming to support cognitive and emotional regulation.

Finding the Right Neurofeedback Training Program

Neurofeedback is often considered a complementary or integrative approach–especially with severe conditions. While neurofeedback training may be used in conjunction with other therapeutic interventions, it can also be used as a stand-alone training program.

Always consult with a licensed healthcare professional who can assess your specific needs and determine whether neurofeedback is a suitable option for your particular condition or goals.

Finding a licensed doctor who will be your neurofeedback practitioner can make all the difference in the world.

Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life.

Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression.
