EEG Neurofeedbackis a specific subset of biofeedback that focuses on the electrical activity of the brain.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive way of training your brainwaves and is a viable alternative to medication for many conditions. Neurofeedback has been around in the 1960s and is now used for a wide range of medical, learning, and peak performance conditions.
Definition of Biofeedback
“Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feed back” information to the user. The presentation of this information – often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior – supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument”.
This definition was ratified by the Task Force on Nomenclature of ISNR in 2008.
