PERSONALIZED BRAIN TRAINING

QEEG Testing and Training via on screen gameplay can positively train areas of the brain.

BRAIN TRAINING

Effective training for recovery of Anxious or Depressive states.

Seeking Depression or Anxiety Relief without Drugs?

Brain training may provide recovery or relief from depressive or anxious states without chemical substances or their side effects.  The QEEG testing, evaluation, and then targeted gameplay training can rebalance brain functions over time.  The training does not require extensive talk therapy which even has the unintended side effect of retraumatizing memories.

Our central Peoria location is staffed to serve your recovery needs with an effective intake, and affordable treatment.  Our goal is to bring the latest brain scanning and sensing technology to our community in Peoria IL.  We are currently seeking patients and staff as we expand to meet the demand for drug free depression or anxiety recovery and optimum brain health.

What Research Shows About qEEG

There are literally thousands of research studies on qEEG for a wide variety of clinical indications, including memory problems, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury (TBI), ADD/ADHD, and processing issues in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). For example:

  • A distinctive brain wave pattern is associated with depression.
  • Researchers have used qEEG to distinguish depression from other conditions, such as dementia, schizophrenia, and alcoholism.
  • Memory issues typically show up as too much theta or too much delta activity
  • Children and adults with ADD/ADHD tend to have high theta and delta brain wave activity, and kids and adolescents with ADD/ADHD tend to have lower beta brain wave activity compared those who don’t have the condition.

Dr. Joel Lubar at the University of Tennessee has conducted a lot of research on brain wave underactivity in children with ADD/ADHD. In published research using qEEG, Dr. Lubar demonstrated that children with ADD/ADHD had excessive slow brain wave activity in the front part of their brain, which worsened when they tried to concentrate.

Dr. Lubar also demonstrated that many children can develop more normal brain wave patterns—and therefore improved focus and behavior—through brain wave biofeedback called neurofeedback. This therapy has been found to enhance memory, focus, and mental clarity; decrease impulsivity and anxiety; improve moods; boost academic performance, and lead to more restful sleep.

Neurofeedback does not involve surgery or medication and is
painless and private.

Neurofeedback training (NFT) is preceded by an objective assessment of brain activity and psychological status. During training, sensors are placed on the scalp and then connected to sensitive electronics and computer software that detect, amplify, and record specific brain activity. 

Resulting information is fed back to the trainee virtually instantaneously with the conceptual understanding that changes in the feedback signal indicate whether or not the trainee’s brain activity is within the designated range. 

Based on this feedback, various principles of learning, and practitioner guidance, changes in brain patterns occur and are associated with positive changes in physical, emotional, and cognitive states. 

Often the trainee is not consciously aware of the mechanisms by which such changes are accomplished although people routinely acquire a “felt sense” of these positive changes and often are able to access these states outside the feedback session.
