Neurofeedback for Depression
Studies have shown that negative moods and depression can stem from an imbalance of Alpha brainwaves between the left and right sides of the brain. This finding can be directly applied in treatment with neurofeedback for depression. Controlled studies in college age students showed that mood was improved when trained with neurofeedback for depression. Neurofeedback resulted in more positive thinking and reduced the negative ways of thinking associated with depression.
Studies have also been done with depressed adults and neurofeedback. Significant improvements in mood were noted with neurofeedback. When other methods such as medication or psychotherapy fail to eliminate symptoms, research suggests that neurofeedback for depression can have up to a 90% success rate.
At Wells Neurofeedback Center we measure brain function with a quantitative EEG brain map, so we can see the reason in your brain for mood problems. Once we see the source of the problem we can target that area for change through neurofeedback brain training.
