Who Can Benefit From Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback can help in the area of Executive Function. This refers to the complex neurological processes in the frontal lobe of our brain. This area of the brain helps us plan, manage time, and get organized. This requires a complex set of skills such as being able to pay attention, self-monitor, and regulate emotions. These skills are developed in childhood and generally improve over time. Unfortunately, executive function can be affected by trauma, or decline in adults because of the normal aging process. In those cases, we can become less organized, less inter-connected, less efficient and more anxious. Neurofeedback can help executive function, and with the normal aging process.
Studies at Imperial College in London have shown that Neurofeedback enhances the performance of musicians, dancers, opera singers, students and others. The military is using Neurofeedback to train sharp shooters and “Top Gun” pilots. Neurofeedback is also used for addiction. A recent study found 77% of substance dependent subjects were sober one year after Neurofeedback, as compared to 44% of control subjects.
