OverviewEEG Neurofeedback is the latest training aid to overcoming learning difficulties, increasing IQ, enhancing memory, increasing reading speed and overall peak performance. Rather than attempting to bring about change in the brain by chemical agents or mental constructs, EEG Neurofeedback educates the brain to produce specific brainwaves in specific locations in the cortex. EEG technology is used to collect date and sight and sound rewards are given to encourage the brain to balance the brain waves, similar to a state of Zen meditation. Achieve in 30 sessions the same results as 20 years of Zen meditation would achieve in harmonising and balancing brainwave production.
Because the brain services as the primary operating system of the entire human, much like a computer; the education of the brain is the most direct and efficient manner to achieve the goals of the person. This latest technology has been demonstrated in multiple research studies to alleviate the symptoms of stress, immune deficiency, addictions, depression, attention deficit disorders, chronic pain, epilepsy, sleep problems, insomnia, habitual substance abuse, ability to focus, anxiety disorders, severe personality disorders, and a host of other neurological, psychological and behavioural problems.
An interesting study has been done which demonstrates that IQ scores can be raised 10-15 points on the WAIS test. The implications for professional educators are tremendous. This study also suggests the possibility of making business executives more efficient and more creative in their work.
