This what your brain looks like on neurofeedback. Any questions?

I’m a big fan of LORETA 19-channel neurofeedback.  BIG, BIG FAN!

This is a quick snapshot of my son Kyle’s QEEG after only 3 sessions Image

This is one page that shows coherence, which is the brain’s ability to talk to itself and communicate and coordinate information.  Poor coherence affects the brain’s efficiency. The red is…well, it’s no bueno. It shows my son’s brain is working extra hard in a very non-efficient way to coordinate information.

The top two rows are pre-neurofeedback.  The bottom two rows are after neurofeedback.  THREE SESSIONS!!!

The secret sauce is the LORETA system, which uses 19 leads and allows several hundred readings to be adjusted dynamically in a 30-40 minute session.

This is the first, big step in addressing my kiddo’s issues.  Coherence is the foundation for improved brain function.

And what can that do?  Improve reading for starters… Here’s a little study

The effectiveness of neurofeedback training on EEG coherence and neuropsychological functions in children with reading disability.

And this is just the start.  Stay tuned.  I think this is going to be really big.

Oh, and we’re working with Dr Mike Slone at Slone Chiropractic in Fremont, CA.
