Dr Cale, Is It True That Neurofeedback Improves Brain’s Neural Plasticity?

The answer, of course, is yes, it does improve neuroplasticity, in fact, that’s what neurofeedback is all about. Most brains that come into our practice, have been sort of shut down right, their lockdown might be a better word, communication between major areas of the brain is sort of locked in unhealthy patterns and a variety of factors have created some constriction where the brain’s intentions, desires its outcomes what it’s thinking does not line up with what the client wants.

The brain seems to be creating more anxiety, more disease, more Depression, more sleep issues, and the client just wants to sleep and feel better Thrive. So, the brain’s objectives and the individual’s objectives are often not lined up together, so, neurofeedback, very gently over time, in a very organic natural way, simply rewards a brain as it moves into a healthier and more functional brain weight pattern. There’s nothing forced upon the brain, there’s nothing no electrical impulses put into the brain, which is why there are no side effects, very few side effects with neurofeedback.

Neuroplasticity Changes With Neurofeedback.

So, we’re rewarding the brain as it naturally discovers increment by increment, teeny increment by increment over time as it discovers that healthier more functional brain wave pattern. When this happens, neural pathways change, and biochemistry the real structure and organization of the brain changes. We know that neuroplasticity changes with neurofeedback partly because there are images of this have been captured as neurons reach out and expand during neurofeedback sessions. But more importantly, at the end of training for kids for example many kids gain 15 to 20 IQ points and adults can focus and function better their cognitive skills improve they can filter out things that they couldn’t filter out before, they feel better, they function better, they do better at work.

All sorts of data prove and point to neuroplasticity and neuroplastic changes in the brain. So the bottom line is yes that’s what neurofeedback is all about. I’m happy to answer more questions if you have them. This is one in a series of questions about your neurofeedback, you’ll see a link below to some of those other questions but if you want to speak with me, you can call our offices at the number listed or you can fill out a form on our website and choose a time that works for you. I look forward to speaking with you, again it’s Dr. Randy Cale, take care now.
