What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback, also called neurobiofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG)— to teach self-regulation of brain function. The brain produces measurable electrical signals, or brainwaves, and neurofeedback aims to change a person's behavior by changing their brain. Neurofeedback research has shown dramatic improvements in focus, memory, mood, pain, anxiety disorders, sleep, and other aspects of our reality.


From training top athletes around the world, to recovering cognitive abilities post-traumatic brain injury, to reducing the use of pharmaceuticals, and even lessening the frequency of seizures - we have yet to find the limits of how neurofeedback can improve our lives.

This panel is ideal for anyone who may be interested in personal development, professionals who want to evaluate it for their own practice, developers and engineers who want to learn more about neurofeedback, as well as those who are looking to explore the newest of cutting edge brain technology built on decades of research and practice.
