There are different methods and techniques. We orient ourselves to the principles and guidelines of the leading organizations, such as: B. the German Society for Biofeedback e.V. as well as the BCIA - Biofeedback Certifitaktion International Alliance
Neurofeedback treatments are prepared extremely carefully before a so-called neurofeedback protocol is used. We have various tests and assessments to choose from. Important so say is that we do not make any diagnoses, but we can make scientific statements about how the brain works.
In this training we use a modern database. This offers maximum safety and the highest possible treatment success. The training of the brainwaves is always oriented to matching the activity to a healthy norm. Thus no parameter can be trained to low or too high.
With Z-Score based neurofeedback, an actual comparison with standard data takes place every second of the training. The colored numbers show the degree of the so-called standard deviation. The goal is to change these values to 0.0 - 0.4. The brain learns to adjust to the healthy norm by using a feedback. It is possible to observe and optimize the brain in real time.
This method was developed primarily by scientists around the Leibnitz Prize winner Nils Birbaumer at the University of Tübingen. The goal of increasing cortical excitability has been shown to increase alertness, and the trainee is better prepared for a subsequent task and can solve it more efficiently (Birbaumer, Rockstroh et al., 1990).
Since the 70s of the last century, this method has proven itself. It is used to amplify certain unfavorable brain waves, while usually very low and very high amplitude frequencies are suppressed (inhibited). In many scientific publications, this has shown good effects in epilepsy and ADHD. However, we rarely use it because it is usually not specific enough and often requires very long treatment times.
