Neurofeedback News and the Latest Research, August 2017

Ability to Gain Control Over One’s Own Brain Activity and its Relation to Spiritual Practice

Brain Activity and its Relation to Spiritual PracticeSpiritual practice, in this case prayer and/or meditation in specific, has long been thought to increase modulation of brain activity can lead to improvements in cognition and behavior.

These researchers investigated whether people who pray frequently show a higher ability of self-control over their own brain activity compared to a control group of individuals who rarely pray. All participants underwent structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and one session of neurofeedback training.

Individuals who reported a high frequency of prayer showed improved neurofeedback performance compared to individuals who reported a low frequency of prayer.

NEW BOOK: Child Decoded: Unlocking Complex Issues in Your Child’s Learning, Behavior or Attention

Child Decoded: Unlocking Complex Issues in Your Child's Learning, Behavior or Attention Paperback – February 16, 2017 by Marijke Jones (Author), Robin E. McEvoy PhD (Author), Kim Gangwish (Author)Recently our own Dr. Steve Rondeau published a chapter in an exciting new book by primary authors Marijke Jones , Robin E. McEvoy PhD , and Kim Gangwish, entitled “Child Decoded: Unlocking Complex Issues in Your Child’s Learning, Behavior or Attention” and published in February of 2017.

You can pick up a copy on Amazon.com, or have a look at a few chapters before you decide with their “look inside” function”.

Here is the author’s introduction to the book:

 

Neurofeedback- An Evidence-Based Scientific Approach to Mental Health

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, evidence- based psychotherapy that allows patients to train their own brains to improve various functions. Evidence- based psychotherapy or medicine is defined by the NIH (National Institute of Health) as follows:

“Evidence based medicine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit, judicious and reasonable use of modern, best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. EBM integrates clinical experience and patient values with the best available research information.” (1)

An EEG readout used for neurofeedback Neurofeedback uses qEEG technology (brain mapping) to measure a patient’s brain waves, and then engages them in dynamic brain training to normalize levels, correlating to improvements in function in that area. Research on wave signatures of individual neurological disorders such as ADD or traumatic brain injury (TBI) has helped specialists identify with great accuracy patterns of brain dysfunction, and researchers have used this much larger pool of data to develop specific neurofeedback protocols to benefit or reverse each individual neurological condition.

During a neurofeedback session, patients play simple games in which they are rewarded for changes in their own brain wave patterns through visual feedback. Adjusting brain wave patterns to optimal levels is a skill the patient learns intuitively, and success allows for progress in the game. Eventually patients develop much greater internal control of their psycho-emotional or behavioral issues, and neurological disorders can be corrected or at least greatly improved.
