The Process

The evalution:

The evaluation measures the amplitude of the brain waves in order to make links with the problems or the objectives. The recording is done with a 19-electrode headphones. The results of this evaluation will make it possible to target the circuits to train in Neurofeedback.

Evaluation Steps:

  • 30-minute meeting with the neuropsychologist to discuss the situation and goals.
  • Recording of brain activity (EEG) by a medical electrophysiology technologist (approximately 30 min).
  • The following week: Analysis and second meeting with the neuropsychologist to discuss results. The report presents your brain activity, the links with the problems and objectives as well as a specific Neurofeedback training program proposal for you.

INSURANCE:

The assessment could be refunded in “Electroencephalography” by your insurance company. Before making an appointment for your assessment, we invite you to contact your insurer to verify eligibility.

The CNESST, the SAAQ and the ACC have already agreed to reimburse part or all of the costs for Neurofeedback assessment and training. We invite you to contact your agent to make the request.

TRAINING:

The proposed training is related to the reported symptoms and the objectives. The electrode headset is again installed to capture signals that are emitted by the brain. No electrical or magnetic stimulation is emitted by the helmet.

Neurofeedback is a brain training based on the principle of positive conditioning. When the targeted regions produce the electrical activity approaching the desired optimal level, a reward is granted. This is the same principle as to train a dog to give the paw. When the dog performs the desired behavior, he receives a reward. Repetition of the exercise with the reward allows the dog to acquire the behavior. It’s the same for the brain. Repetition of training in Neurofeedback would acquire the desired brain activity and later the brain could reproduce this activity daily and symptoms related to the circuit could be mitigated

The reward used in Neurofeedback is a video (or music). When the brain produces the desired activity in the targeted regions, the video (or music) plays on the screen in front of the client and when the brain stops, the video (or music) stops. The brain would take a few seconds to understand the activity it should produce and then repeat it during the session. The exercise is repeated from session to session and it is thanks to this repetition that the brain could subsequently reproduce this activity on a daily basis.

Since this is a training, it is recommended to practice twice a week. Each appointment has a total duration of approximately 50 minutes. During training, six five-minute blocks of Neurofeedback are completed for a total of 30 minutes. The rest of the time is allocated to headset setup, signal verification and breaks between blocks so the coach adjusts the settings.

The total number of sessions varies according to the circuits to train. In general, each circuit requires about ten Neurofeedback sessions.
