What to Expect in a Neurofeedback Session

When you come for a  NeurOptimal™  neurofeedback session you'll be sitting in a comfortable chair watching a graphic (or you can close your eyes), and you’ll be listening to music. You’ll hear very brief pauses in the music – this is the system giving feedback to your brain – and the image will also pause or change.

You'll have sensors on your ears and head (five altogether). The sensors are there to transmit information to the NeurOptimal™ neurofeedback system about the electrical activity of your brain, specifically, to flag for your brain when it is beginning to operate in a way that is problematic (such as anxiety or loss of focus). Your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord) will use that information to renormalize itself, to increase the flexibility and resilience of your system.
