What’s New in Neurofeedback? LOTS!!

NeurofeedbackThe field of EEG brain wave biofeedback, neurofeedback,  has advanced dramatically in recent years.  Advances in neuroscience have provided a richer understanding of the mechanisms of EEG operant conditioning, allowing for improved treatment across the different types of neurofeedback, especially in Z score training.

The most recent discovery is LORETA, Low Resoulution Electromagnetic Tomographic Analysis that was developed by Roberto Pascal Marti, Key Institute, in Zurich.  LORETA Z score Neurofeedback was developed at the University of Tennessee, and has had it’s clinical efficacy supported by a number of publications.  The goal of LORETA is to train the activity inside the brain, not just the surface EEG on the cranium of the brain, as it trains the amplitude (power), the coherence (connectivity), and the phase lag (timing).

LORETA Z score neurofeedback trains the whole brain

Emotion, memories, and behavior depend on the coordinated activities of multiple regions in the brain that are connected by the limbic system.  LORETA Z score training allows us to train the different systems (networks and hubs) in all three dimensions, amplitude, coherence, and timing.  LORETA connects the data from your QEEG to the Broadmann areas of the brain that research associates with the desired symptom you are wanting to train.  Relying solely on brain maps can be misleading, as the brain can develop compensatory systems to work around the problem, and thus misrepresent what is truly causing the problems. With the LORETA Z score training, you are utilizing over two hundred years of research linking symptoms to the Broadman areas in the brain, with the end result of treating the root and not a symptom.

LORETA Neurofeedback is offered now in both the Dallas and Irving centers

The Brain Performance Center is proud to offer LORETA Z score neurofeedback, being one of approximately 100 clinics in the USA to offer this type of neurofeedback
