Brain Training San Diego
Your brain has billions of individual neurons that make different connections all the time. As with any complex system, your brain can benefit from training to maintain its peak performance. The purpose of neurofeedback and brain training is to ensure that your brain functions at optimal levels.
What is brain training?
Brain training uses neurofeedback to directly train the brain in real-time using innovative computer technology. Over several sessions, you learn to teach your brain to function more efficiently, frequently with long-lasting results. Neurofeedback addresses brain dysregulation associated with conditions such as depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, ADHD, migraines, autism, and more.
The benefits of brain training
- Improve attention and focus for children with learning disorders
- Improve autism symptoms by increasing Beta brainwave speeds
- Improve depression symptoms by increasing Alpha brainwave speeds
- Increase restful sleep by decreasing Delta brainwave speeds
- Improve memory by increasing theta brainwave speeds
- Decrease cravings associated with addictions
- Reduce stress and anxiety by decreasing Beta brainwave speeds
The brain training process
During a session, you are connected to a computer using sensors. They are non-invasive. They do not send an electrical current through your brain. The sensors only monitor your brainwaves.
Then you will listen to music, play a video game, watch a movie, or some other activity. When the monitor detects irregular brainwaves, it will change the video or sound. This will prompt you to refocus your attention back onto the activity. This may happen many times during the first session. However, you will learn to stay focused more consistently with brain training. You can apply this finely honed skill to every life circumstance.
Brain training does not target symptoms or conditions. It works to correct irregular brainwaves and modify timing patterns in your brain. The result is an improvement in symptoms and conditions from better brain waves.
Conditions that are clinically responsive to brain training
- Learning Disorders
- Insomnia and sleep disorders
- Chronic pain and fatigue
- Memory loss
- Drug addiction
Why does brain training work so well?
Studies show that individuals who suffer from neurological issues have atypical brainwaves. For instance, a person with ADD has slower Beta brainwaves, which are responsible for focus and attention.
Brain training works to positively change the atypical brain waves over time by slowing them down or speeding them up where needed. Brain training can improve attention, alertness, behavior, emotional regulation, mental flexibility, and cognitive function. When brainwave speed is regulated properly, you enjoy a reduction in symptoms.
Frequently results are long-lasting. This can enable you to reduce or eliminate medications – check with your doctor first. Medications manage symptoms. The objective of brain training is to address the underlying cause and return brainwave functions to normal.

QEEG and neurofeedback are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Indeed, the FDA has recognized that neurofeedback has never resulted in a serious side effect since it was first used over 40 years ago. There are thousands of studies that show its effectiveness.
