Aplicaciones científicas del NEUROFEEDBACK

El Neurofeedback es un método de entrenamiento cerebral. A través de la lectura de la actividad eléctrica del cerebro, registrada en un software podemos enseñar al cerebro a cambiar patrones disfuncionales, autoregularse y cambiar su estado.

Aplicaciones del Neurofeedback

Es un método científico con aplicaciones clínicas concretas y posibilidades en otros campos como rendimiento, deporte, stress, descanso y relajación.

Las aplicaciones científicas del Neurofeedback demuestran que su uso es adecuado para tratar los casos de:

  • TDAH
  • Trastornos de aprendizaje
  • Epilepsia
  • Dislexia
  • Adicciones
  • Ansiedad
  • Depresión
  • Stress post-traumático
  • TOC
  • Trastorno bipolar
