Memphis Neurofeedback & Brain Mapping

Memphis Neurofeedback and Brain MappingAt JNT Natural Medicine Regenerative and Pain Center, we are privileged to provide our patients with state-of-the-art neurofeedback protocols. This constantly evolving science has been in existence since the 1960s, with decades of research-based studies that document its effectiveness in improving brain health.

Computerized neurofeedback detects and corrects irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns. Due to a variety of reasons, brainwaves can sometimes run abnormally fast, while some are programmed to function too slowly. This can result in conditions ranging from chronic depression to ADD.

Neurofeedback correction successfully re-trains the brain to optimize its brainwave activity, resulting in better health and the elimination of unwanted symptoms.

The Brain Mapping Process

Our neurofeedback program works by scanning your alpha, beta, delta and theta brainwaves in the frontal, parietal, occipital and central lobes of the brain. We’re able to accomplish this through a cutting-edge diagnostic tool, the Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG).

Electrodes are strategically placed on the scalp through a nylon cap. The procedure itself is:

  • Accurate
  • Drug-free
  • Free of radiation
  • Noninvasive
  • Painless
  • Relaxing
  • Safe

During a normal session, we simply ask you to watch a movie of your choice or listen to music or an audio book. The QEEG will monitor your brainwaves the entire time, with the goal of detecting those that are out of normal range.

We refer to this process as brain mapping. Brain mapping doesn’t identify specific conditions, but rather clearly reveals problem areas. This information helps us to expertly determine the likely neurological symptoms that have proven troublesome for you or a loved one in the past.

Operant Conditioning

As you relax and enjoy your treatment, if the QEEG detects an abnormality, this highly sensitive system will trigger a response that “changes” the movie or music in a subtle way. This change isn’t annoying, but will get your attention, causing you to increase your focus.

The act of refocusing corrects the irregular brainwaves, and then the movie or music will resume in a normal manner. This process is what’s called operant conditioning.

Over the course of multiple sessions, through operant conditioning, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own. At that time, no further neurofeedback sessions are needed.

Benefits of Memphis Neurofeedback and Brain Mapping

Through the science of brain mapping, it’s now possible to generate a set of customized data in helping you overcome your specific brainwave irregularities. We will provide you with a comprehensive report with a detailed analysis of your cognitive, emotional, executive and memory processing skills. Specific measures, such as impulsiveness, aggression, focus, and motivation will also be examined as well.

Here are some of the well-known positive aspects of neurofeedback:

  • A sense of well-being
  • Better emotional regulation
  • Decreased aggression and impulsivity
  • Greater cognitive function
  • Heightened intuition, motivation and creativity
  • Improved social interaction
  • Improvement in the symptoms of autism
  • Increased alertness, focus and attention
  • Less depression, irritability, and anxiety
  • Mental flexibility with a lessening of victim mentality
  • Reduction in the symptoms of ADD and ADHD
  • Regulation of brainwaves responsible for addiction
  • Relaxation
  • Restorative sleep

Results are often permanent, which allows many of our patients to eliminate their reliance on medications. Do you or a family member have an issue that could be helped through scientifically validated neurofeedback? We invite you to partner with us at JNT Natural Medicine Regenerative and Pain Center in helping you and those you love to live a fuller, richer life.
