Greenville Brain Training, based in Greenville, South Carolina, has announced that they are offering a non-invasive, drug-free method for treating learning challenges or learning disorders. Learning disorders can make children struggle with their reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, verbal communication, organizing information, and understanding and interpreting social cues. They want to point out that the usual treatment provided is medication but this has side effects. The alternative is neurofeedback training, which is drug-free and free from unwanted side effects.
Dr. JoJo Yonce from Greenville Brain Training explains, “Learning differences can be something as well-known as dyslexia. But they can also stem from auditory processing disorders, or a disruption of any number of cognitive functions. Regardless of any diagnosis your child may have, a diagnosis isn’t necessary to begin brain training. Our staff at Greenville Brain Training understands these challenges and are dedicated to helping your child.”
While neurofeedback may appear to be complicated with sensors on the scalp of the patient and then measuring brain waves and monitoring changes, it is actually quite simple. Neurofeedback training is actually an exercise for the brain and as such it can strengthen specific areas of brain function. Those are the areas where Dr. Yonce and staff have determined can function better as seen from the patient’s brain map.
Dr. Yonce explains, “For patients, neurofeedback at Greenville Brain Training is very easy to do. All you do is sit back, relax and watch a movie of your choice. During a neurofeedback session, a person’s brain wave activity is tracked via sensors on the scalp. In fact, in a single session, the brain observes over 1000 times when it’s on track and when it’s off track creating better function in the areas that need it.”
During the neurofeedback Greenville training session, the information is communicated back to the patient through auditory and visual signals. When the brainwaves are firing a rate that is too slow or too fast, the movie on the screen being watched by the patient will dim and volume will also decrease, which serve as the feedback to the brain of the patient, signifying that something is out of balance.
That is how the patient is able to recognize when undesirable brain waves are being produced. Gradually, the patient’s brain learns how produce the desired brain waves and minimize the emergence of the unwanted brain wave patterns. This is how the unwanted brain wave patterns related to certain learning disorders are eliminated or at least minimized in the brain of the patient. There is actually no way to do it wrong. There is no need for conscious effort while the brain is performing its own exercise while watching a movie. Children actually enjoy the neurofeedback training because they get to choose their favorite movies that they can watch.
And what’s more is that patients need not choose between their medications and neurofeedback. They can continue to take their medications while training their brain to function better. One of the goals at Greenville Brain Training is to get rid of dysregulated brainwave patterns, resulting in the decrease or even elimination of the symptoms naturally. When this goal is achieved, there would no longer be any need for the medications that were used to control them.
Patients are advised by Greenville Brain Training to consult with their prescribing physician with regards to their need for continued medications or reducing their dosages as they improve with neurofeedback training.
A Greenville Brain Training session usually lasts for 50 to 60 minutes. In addition to the 30 minute neurofeedback session, they will also spend time beforehand to integrate specific therapies that can relax the brain and thus help prepare the brain for a better neurofeedback session.
