Exercise your Brain with Neurofeedback

Home/Gaiam TV/Exercise your Brain with Neurofeedback

Everybody knows that exercise is necessary to keep your body healthy.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could exercise your brain like you work out your body?

Well, you can!

Dr. Siegfried Othmer, who has been developing research-grade instrumentation for EEG feedback equipment since 1987, explains how you can use neurofeedback to exercise your brain.

I interviewed Dr. Othmer on Gaiam TV on August 21, 2014, to find out how his mental exercises can make our brains stronger and increase their plasticity. He has been involved with neurofeedback since 1985, as part of the brain-training of his son for seizure disorder.

This training was life-transforming for his son and has directed his professional life to the development of neurofeedback as well as to the promotion of its public acceptance. He currently provides training for professionals in EEG biofeedback, and presents research findings in professional forums.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is direct training for higher brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. When we observe the brain in action from moment to moment we can reward the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. This is a gradual learning process and leads to improvement in every aspect of brain function.

Neurofeedback for Enlightened Awareness is based on electrical brain activity for higher, meta-cognative self-awareness. Self-cognition and awareness is a necessary part of good brain function and allows the central nervous system to function better for dramatically improved health, relationships and prosperity.
