Brain Training Q & A

What is Brain Training?

Brain Training, also called neurofeedback, is an established, safe procedure that many doctors use. It helps to regulate positive feedback mechanisms in the brain and create better connections. Patients with a variety of psychological disorders benefit from Brain Training.

Brain Training has revolutionized modern medical care with its ability to relieve stress, expand the brain’s creative processes, and improve overall health. The therapy revolves around audiovisual simulations that use rewards to create improved connections in the brain.

This process enables your brain to avoid potentially harmful responses and helps regulate its activity toward more productive thoughts.

How does Brain Training work?

The reward process in Brain Training makes use of the way your brain functions to change unwanted activity.

Your provider at Regenerative Medical Group attaches electrodes to your head that show your brain activity. They feed the data into a special computer program and extract information on important brainwave frequencies.

As they watch your brain work, they feed the information back to you in the form of a video game that you play using your mind. 

By consciously changing the activity in your brain, you progress through the video game. This acts as a reward to your brain, encouraging the development of new, healthier forms of thinking.

The process is gradual, requiring repetition to make the new connections in your brain long-lasting. The new pattern of thinking needs to become stronger than the original, flawed thinking, which can take time.

What conditions can Brain Training treat?

Brain Training can treat any condition that involves a disturbance or imbalance in your thought processes. That includes mental health conditions and developmental disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Dyslexia
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
  • Behavior disorders
  • Sleep problems
  • Memory problems
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Emotional disturbances

Brain Training can also be helpful for organic brain diseases, including autism, cerebral palsy, and seizures. While Brain Training won’t cure these conditions, it does improve the way the brain reacts. This results in a reduction of symptoms and improvement in coping.

Each patient has an individual treatment plan for their Brain Training. The brainwave frequencies and the parts of the brain your program treats are specific to your condition.
