If Your Brain Slows Down
When It Should Speed Up,
How Can You Expect to Learn?

You can't!. The truth is that brains that struggle with learning often shift into low gear just when they should be shifting into high gear.

Some people's brainwaves in the front of their brain slow to 4-8 Hz instead of speeding up to 15-18 Hz while doing math problems or reading. This is like stepping on the gas petal in a car and having the engine sputter instead of revving up. With such a car, you can't get good mileage. With such a brain, you can't get good learning.

How Can You Find Out
If Your Brain Slows Down
When It Should be Speeding Up?

Measure your brain waves using a procedure called the quantitative EEG or QEEG for short. EEG is short for electroencephalogram and simply means an electrical graph or picture of your head or brain. Quantitative refers to an intensive mathematical analysis of the electrical patterns of your brain so that irregularities or challenges can be identified.

What Can You Do
If Your Brain Sputters
When It Should Be Revving Up?

There is GREAT news. Exercising your brain properly may enable you to rewire your brain so that it accelerates when challenged by math problems, reading, or other important tasks instead of slowing down. The information obtained from the QEEG establishes one or several training programs to exercise your brain using a procedure called neurofeedback (sometimes called EEG biofeedback).

Information from your brain is fed into a computer that analyzes it, simplifies it, and then instantly displays it back to you so that you can learn to alter you own brainwaves merely through the power of your own mind.

If this sounds a little difficult to believe or understand, it really isn't. You learn to rewire your brain using exactly the same process that you used to learn to walk, to eat, to ride a bicycle, or any other skill. The only difference is that we provide clear, computerized feedback to supplement your internal biological feedback that you use in learning other skills.

Why Should You Believe that
Neurofeedback Works?

You are entitled to be skeptical. Neurofeedback has come into more prominence in recent years. You may know someone who has tried neurofeedback unsuccessfully. That happens. Few procedures are 100% successful, and neurofeedback is no exception. Fortunately, since the current success rate is around 85%, you are more likely to know someone who has been successful.

Though neurofeedback has been around for a long time, it has been difficult to complete enough well-controlled scientific studies to satisfy its harshest critics. Case studies of successful treatment lasting up to 10 years and longer abound, but funding to complete the controlled studies has been lacking. Nevertheless, a number of rigorous studies now validate the effectiveness of neurofeedback beyond any reasonable doubt.

RESEARCH REPORT #1: Eighteen children ages 5 to 15 years old received neurofeedback training. Training improved inattentiveness and cognitive performance compared to untrained children. This study was published in 1996. Since then, advances in computer equipment and software programs have made treatment more powerful and effective.

Findings with neurofeedback transcend cultures as evidenced in the study reported below from Wuhan, China. When treatment programs work in one culture, that is good news. When programs work in very different cultures, you can be even more confident in their power.

RESEARCH REPORT #2: Sixty children ages 6 years old and above received 40 sessions of neurofeedback training. Researchers observed a rate of effectiveness that exceeded 90%.

People often ask if medication will interfere with neurofeedback. Although it may be preferable to train without medications, sometimes practical considerations trump ideal circumstances. The study below was conducted in a school system where Ritalin was necessarily a part of the program. Nevertheless, some interesting findings emerged.

RESEARCH REPORT #3: One hundred children were studied for a year using different combinations of Ritalin, parental counseling, and neurofeedback. Only those children who used neurofeedback maintained gains when tested without medications.

Sometimes neurofeedback studies have been criticized for small numbers of subjects. And it is true that most practitioners are in private practice and only have a relatively small number of clients at any one time. To overcome this, mega-studies like the one below can bridge the gap.

RESEARCH REPORT #4: Data from more than 1000 clients trained with neurofeedback at 32 clinics were combined and evaluated. This research supports the power of neurofeedback with many clinicians at numerous locations.
