One of the new technologies I have for Neurofeedback is something called swLORETA z-score Neurofeedback. It is part of a program I used called Neuroguide.
Traditional neurofeedback uses one or two electrodes on the head to increase or decrease a particular frequency or frequencies. swLORETA z-score Neurofeedback uses 19 electrodes on the head to train the brain in 3 dimensions. It divides the brain into over 12,000 voxels or pieces and calculates the brain activity at those locations. I then compare that data to a normative database to determine what areas of the brain are different from the average human. If those areas of the brain are different, and they relate to the symptoms a person is having, then we can re-train those areas of the brain.
For the first time, swLORETA allows deeper structures in the brain like the cerebellum to be viewed using qEEG technology. The cerebellum is very important in balance and coordination disorders, conditions like Parkinson's and is also now even being found to be involved in things like attention. swLORETA stands for standardized weighted low resolution electromagnetic tomography analysis.
Advantages to swLORETA Neurofeedback is that it is more specific than traditional neurofeedback. Because it is more specific, it is being reported to work faster than other forms of traditional Neurofeedback and may succeed where other forms of Neurofeedback have reached a plateau in progress.
Neurofeedback can be used to treat anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, Autism, insomnia, traumatic brain injury, and is being investigated for use in cognitive problems associated with COVID-19.
