Neurofeedback therapy is a non-invasive technique that mental health professionals use to train and rewire different areas of your brain. This biofeedback technique is done with real-time feedback using an electroencephalograph (EEG), a device that monitors and conditions your brain waves to reduce mental anguish and dysfunction. The conditioning aspect is done through positive and negative feedback signals.
Neurofeedback is used to treat the symptoms of a variety of disorders, ranging from depression and anxiety to ADHD and PTSD. While the technique is not effective in all cases, it just might work for you.
