This is an excellent introduction to how neurofeedback works by referencing specific anecdotal situations in which neurofeedback has been helpful.
“Her purpose here is to discuss and illustrate the four types of brain waves—beta, alpha, theta, and delta—with emphasis on what they do, how they work together, and whether we can use their power.”
A guide to neurofeedback for better physical and mental health as well as greater emotional balance, cognitive agility, and creativity
Each moment of our lives, from birth to death, our brains are engaged in an endless symphony of patterns. In Awakening the Mind, Anna Wise reveals how a careful understanding of the four types of brain waves, and the practice of carefully designed meditation exercises that lead to a mastery of each type, can vastly improve everyday focus, memory, concentration, and overall mental awareness.
Over the past three decades, Wise has measured the brain-wave patterns of spiritual teachers, artists, high-performing businessmen, athletes, and other highly creative and productive individuals. She discovered that, during periods of peak mental awareness and clarity, they all exhibited a specific brain-wave pattern in which the four categories of brain waves—alpha, beta, theta, and delta—combined in a distinct configuration. In this book, Wise provides meditation exercises specially developed to lead readers to achieve that heightened mental state referred to as the Awakened Mind.
Dr. Clare Albright has taken what can often be a complex subject-neurofeedback- and described it in a way that not only makes it easy for anyone to understand, but shows you how you can use brain biofeedback to make ADD/ADHD a thing of the past.
Neurofeedback is a scientifically proven form of brain-wave feedback that trains the child’s brain to overcome slow brain-wave activity, and increase and maintain its speed permanently. Neurofeedback is quick, noninvasive, and cost effective. In fact, 80 percent of the time, neurofeedback is effective without any of the side effects associated with drugs commonly used for such childhood disorders as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, sleep disorders, and emotional problems.
Healing Young Brains examines each disorder separately and explains in lay terms:
* The manifestation of the disorder
* The diagnosis
* The rationale for treating the disorder with brain-wave training
Healing Young Brains is parents’ guide to all they need to know about treating their children with neurofeedback as an alternative to drugs.
