How is Neurofeedback applied in Neuroscenter?
Neurofeedback is a method to train our brain activity,
Communication between groups of cells generates thoughts, actions, and sensations, which are detectable thanks to the brain waves that we emit.
During sessions at Neuroscenter, these waves are monitored and analyzed. If imbalances are detected, the patient receives repeated stimuli controlled by a neuroscience professional, generating learning that improves brain function.

Neurofeedback sessions in Barcelona and Girona
Surely you are wondering what our sessions in Barcelona and Girona are about. Let’s clear those doubts:
During the first Neurofeedback session, we carried out an assessment of brain activity by performing an EEG (quantitative electroencephalogram).
For this, sensors are placed on the patient’s head and we obtain a brain mapping, which illustrates how your brain reacts. Our Experts compare the results with the optimal brain conditions of any person, which reveals the areas that require work. It should be noted that the process is not intrusive and is absolutely safe.
Once the results obtained have been analyzed and taking into account the person’s objectives, an individualized and totally personalized training will be proposed for each patient.
From here begins the treatment based on several sessions. In each session, stimuli are emitted to train those areas of the brain that need reinforcement, generating learning that improves brain performance.

How many Neurofeedback sessions are necessary?
At Neuroscenter, based on the cases treated at our Neurofeeback center in Barcelona and Girona, we could say that In most cases, between 20 and 30 sessions are required, lasting between 30 and 45 minutes each. In this way, the brain acquires and consolidates its capacity for self-regulation.
Clearly, not all cases are the same, each person is different and the degree of imbalance or the objective sought may be different. Due to this, it is not possible to define exactly the number of sessions necessary, but in other cases, not so serious, or depending on the condition (for example, insomnia) they require much fewer sessions.
When do the effects begin to be noticed?
We usually notice changes between the 4th or 6th session, but it all depends on the type of condition of each patient or their goals. It may also happen that from the first sessions some positive effects on our energy and sleep are observed.
The perception of improvement will depend on many factors: the symptoms that are to be improved, the situation and environment of the person at the time of treatment, previous expectations, the individual characteristics of each individual, etc. There are patients who will be able to notice changes from the first sessions and others who will perceive them later in the treatment.
For most people, simply relieving uncomfortable symptoms is enough. Others want to advance or improve in other areas, or tackle new goals and challenges. Ultimately, self-improvement continues for life. How much is enough is up to you.
Virtual reality coming soon
We are working to incorporate virtual reality into our workouts in the near future thanks to the Oculus Rift technology. In this way we will improve the Neurofeedback experience.
All the information you need about Neurofeedback
Our clients report a significant improvement in their goals 95% of the time, an exceptionally high rate of achievement. Neurofeedback is effective in the vast majority of cases, and provides measurable results.
Almost everyone responds to training, and the results achieved are long lasting. Like any therapy, Neurofeedback works best with people who are motivated and want to get better.
Our reputation is built on results, so if we believe you will not benefit from Neurofeedback, we will not accept you as a client.
It’s important to be aware that a healthy diet and limiting your intake of alcohol (or other brain-damaging toxins) will help maintain your gains.
Another aspect to note is that a child or vulnerable adult living in a physically or psychologically toxic environment will have more difficulty maintaining results, as will those with degenerative neurological conditions.
Based on our experience as professionals, on the opinions of our patients and on the scientific evidence, we can affirm that Neurofeedback is effective in the vast majority of cases.
Yes, Neurofeedback is a non-intrusive technique and it is completely safe. This means that the sensors that are placed on the head only record brain activity, they do not send any information to the brain or cause any effect on it. In the same way that muscles are strengthened after exercise, Neurofeedback strengthens neural pathways with specifically tailored exercises. It is simply a learning technique.
In the 40-year history of Neurofeedback, there have been no recorded cases in which any harm has occurred. However, as with any form of exercise, there can be minor side effects such as tiredness.
Neurofeedback sessions are pleasant and effective. The patient reclines comfortably in a chair while sensors pick up their brain waves. Through a video or a game or a melody, you are informed when your brain is meeting the training objective and when it is not.
Using this marker, the brain learns new ways to function – stretching your mental muscles, showing your brain the way to greater comfort, balance, and better function. Throughout the sessions, you will be working with a neurotherapist who will monitor and help you progress, working with you to ensure the best results.
Neurofeedback treatment is based on operant conditioning learning, a type of training that consists of rewarding patients to inhibit certain brainwave frequencies and increase other frequencies.
During the session, by giving the child information about how their brain works (indicating if they are doing it right or if they need to modify a certain pattern), at the same time that they are performing the exercise, it allows the child to correct these errors and understand functions that you do not normally consciously control.
Improving in this way: self-control and self-regulation, attention, planning, achievement of goals based on objectives, concentration and reduction of distracting stimuli.
Most clients notice their first changes in the first four to six sessions, however a minimum of twenty sessions is recommended to ensure that the changes are sustained over time.
As with learning any new skill, the effects are cumulative. Most people experience improvements after the first few sessions; however, they will likely only last a day or two.
After more training and extra reinforcement, the changes will last longer. As the psychological core improves, old habits naturally shift to healthier ones. Just like building a muscle, strengthening new neural pathways takes some practice.
In most cases, a minimum of 20 Neurofeedback sessions are estimated to be necessary, but this technique involves learning and each person is unique, so the type, order and rhythm of the changes differ from person to person. Young brains learn much faster than older ones, and small matters change faster than large ones. In general, the longer and more ingrained the symptoms, the more sessions are required. You can expect the improvement to be cumulative over the course of the sessions.
The average number of Neurofeedback sessions varies depending on the type of equipment we are using in your case. Based on our equipment of 19 sensors, a «mental tune-up» would consist of around 20 sessions. For the treatment of autism spectrum and severe autoimmune disorders, a greater number of sessions is predicted with progressive gains throughout the course.
A normal effect that can appear after performing a Neurofeedback session could be fatigue. Other possible effects, although much less common, can be headache, nausea, dizziness and sensitivity to light.
Neurofeedback is the brain equivalent of physical exercise, so the most common side effect is fatigue. As with physical training, after a neurofeedback session, the most commonly reported side effect is fatigue.
While brain training is similar to physical training in many ways, the brain and body express the side effects of training differently. Fatigue, at the brain level, is experienced in the form of mental exhaustion, in the same way that happens after learning a complex mental skill, after speaking a language with which one is not fluent.
Because Neurofeedback is essentially structured exercises for your brain, the term “side effect” is not applicable in the same sense that it would be for medications. Unlike medication, with Neurofeedback nothing is introduced into the body or the brain.
If you have suffered a physical brain injury or head trauma, you are likely to be more sensitive to Neurofeedback. You may experience nausea, dizziness, and sensitivity to light as you regulate your brain function, it’s part of the process.
During neurofeedback sessions we monitor your brain activity, so we can tell if your brain is getting tired, or overloaded, and adjust your training accordingly.
