Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback - this is how it works

60 min. per training

1 - 2 sessions per week

sustainable effects starting at approx. 10 sessions

individual training protocols

1) The anamnesis - the quantitative EEG

An qEEG (quantitative EEG), or also called brainmapping, is the analysis of a 19-channel EEG. It records the “current activity” of the brain.

This measurement process is completely pain-free for the patient. The exact analysis of the raw EEG and the comparison with medical databases make differing functional patterns of the brain visible. Above all it leads to a fast and economical imaging as well as to a comprehensive information basis for the further training.

Functional limitations of the brain, such as after a concussion or a variety of mental illnesses, can be demonstrated with a qEEG objectively.

Neurofeeback qEEG Heatmap
"Heatmap" of the respective activity

The qEEG is always at the beginning of a neurofeedback therapy. The aim is to guarantee an individual and optimal planning of the therapy. A graphical evaluation in the form of so-called “heatmaps” is created for each patient.

The data of the brain activities are standardized. Thus, comparisons with medical databases and other qEEGs can be made, which the practice healer has not recorded itself.

In addition to the recording of the quantitative EEG, the first conversation with the patient in the Heiler practice is a detailed medical anamnesis. Doctor and patient work together on the medical history, the current condition and the training goals.

EEG Analysis in real time

In neurofeedback training, measuring electrodes, connected to a pleasant cap, are first attached to the head at fixed points. By measuring brain activity, the doctor derives an EEG (electroencephalogram). The patient himself does not feel anything from the EEG recording. The EEG measures all relevant brain waves and forwards them to a computer. A special computer program divides the brain waves into frequency ranges and subjects them to analysis. All important data are measured in real time (with only 30 milliseconds delay) and 50 times per second.

The data analysis described above is to be conveyed to the patient in the following simple form as feedback , there are many different possibilities. These include virtual reality environments, movies, music/sounds, games (often interesting for children to maintain motivation during training) and many other options.

The feedback is based on the principle of so-called operant conditioning. This means that the feedback given to the patient represents a reward if the patient succeeds in activating certain brain areas in such a way that they generate the desired brain activity. In concrete terms, the reward means, for example, that the film appears bright and clearly visible. The “punishment” shows a dark and badly visible film. These processes work also with music. It is either loud and well audible or quiet and almost incomprehensible.

Our brain wants to be rewarded as often as possible. It constantly tries to recognize and understand the patterns hidden in the feedback in order to receive a reward as often as possible. This process takes place completely unconsciously, without the active intervention of the patient and without medication.

Neurofeedback with Audio & Video

Neurofeedback Training with audio & video as feedback medium is very well accepted by adults and children. The trainee watches a film or listens to music of his choice. The feedback itself is controlled by the brightness and size of the screen and the volume of the music. 
For example, you can train with your favorite music or TV series

Neurofeedback Games - here "Monk"

Especially with children it is important to keep the motivation for neurofeedback training high. In our experience this works best with games as feedback medium. We have developed a variety of neurofeedback games together with our partner brainboost Neurofeedback . Especially our patients with attention problems or ADHD perceive this kind of feedback as very beneficial.  

A selection of our most popular neurofeedback games can be found further down on this page.
