Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) is a technique to assess the functioning of the brain. This is an accurate and reproducible method used to detect differences in the way the brain operates that may have effects on individual performance. The test is completely non-invasive, producing results similar to anfMRI. It takes about thirty minutes to complete, requires no special preparation, and has no negative effects. The information from the qEEG is then used to develop customized brain training or “neurofeedback.”
Neurofeedback trains the brain to function more effectively through operant conditioning, or by providing simple rewards to encourage proper functioning. This helps the brain to work with less distraction, more capacity, and more clarity. Please visitApplied Neurosciencefor research on this method.
Please visit this website for for radio broadcasts discussing the nature and advantages of neurofeedback (the radio programs are in the column on the right in blue, each is about an hour and contains various advertisements, but has many accomplished neurofeedback providers from across the country answering common questions about this method):ultimatebrain.com
The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) has put together a list of disorders treated by bio- and neuro-feedback. Here is the page that discusses the efficacy of these methods for various disorders:
