When your brain works,
your body responds.
How does it work?
Just a few years ago,
everyone including most doctors and neurologists believed that the brain
can’t change. It was believed that when neurons die, they are gone and
can’t be regenerated.
Contrary to common belief, the brain can change. Over the last decades, neuro-scientists have found that the brain is actually
quite plastic and has the ability to both physically and chemically change IF given the proper stimulation.
Weak and slow areas of your brain will
actually get larger and faster with proper stimulation. Spaces between
cells get smaller and new connections will grow. As a result, the new
connections in a weak area of your brain can reconnect with the more mature
cells on the functioning side and get back into rhythm. New brain plasticity is created and
your brain begins functioning as a whole.
Neurofeedback does just that. Based on
the data of your qEEG brain map, we know exactly which areas of your brain
we need to stimulate. The brain retrains itself by guiding it along with an
EEG system, providing a reward when the brain works in a healthy way, and
withholding the reward when it’s not functioning properly. It is simply
biofeedback applied directly to the brain, while measuring real time
electrical brain activity with an EEG system.
that neurofeedback induces changes not only in the white matter (myelin) of
the brain, but also in the grey matter (neurons). This study proves that
with neurofeedback, the brain can change and regenerate.
Neurofeedback uses operant conditioning.
Neurofeedback is based on
operant conditioning, an innovative way to train your brain. When a part of
your brain is operating in an unhealthy way, either too fast (hyper) or too
slow (hypo), your brain can learn to normalize the activity of that area.
Continuous visual (movie) and
auditory (movie, music) feedback is used as a reward and the brain
reorganizes itself to reduce unhealthy activity and stay within healthy
ranges. Eventually, the brain learns to remain in the functional pattern
and is able to sustain healthy activity independently – without further
need for neurofeedback.
This multi-sensory approach
interrupts ineffective mental patterns. Your central nervous system learns
how to self-regulate, directing you away from debilitating, painful,
destructive disorders, into effortless processing and optimal
functionality, reclaiming your well being.
Once the brain is optimized,
it can also control your body in a more effective way. The systems in your
body start working better and many physiological symptoms disappear.
daughter has been suffering from ADHD and behavioral issues. Her teachers
complained about her bad behavior at school, inability to pay attention and
disturbing other kids. The school psychologist encouraged us to get her on
medication while the school has been giving her special ed classes. She has been on Ritalin for over
4 years and we are very concerned about the side effects. Doctors had to
keep increasing her dosage to manage her symptoms.
decided to try neurofeedback. After working with the Jamieson Health
Center, we have seen great improvement in our daughter’s behavior. She is a
much happier, compliant and positive little girl. A
few weeks ago, she received the “Student of the Month” award at school. All
her teachers have noticed the amazing changes in her behavior and cognitive
function. We are so thankful to have found the Jamieson Health Center
