Neuroplasticity is the ability to form new neural pathways as a result of changes in behavior or environment. Just like exercising our muscles, by exercising the brain we can strengthen neurological connections and form new pathways for more efficient and controlled functioning. Neurofeedback can help, even years after an injury. Not only does neurofeedback strengthen neural pathways, but neurofeedback also assists to regulate sleep patterns. Better rest assists the healing process.
Traumatic Brain Injury: Neurofeedback was found to be more effective than traditional methods for intervening on symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury. Often there are trauma issues that complicate the recovery process. BrainPaint® prioritizes the individual training approach based on a functional evaluation.

During the 1960s, researcher Barry Sterman accidentally discovered that cats that had been trained through operant conditioning to increase amplitude of 12-15 hertz (SMR) were seizure resistant. This study was seminal in the field of neurofeedback and has led to many studies showing stabilization of seizure activity.

Biobalance was a great company to work with! Brenda was always so attentive and willing to help me with any concerns. I highly recommend Neurofeedback to anyone looking for an effective way to help improve brain functioning! — Home User
We did the neurofeedback training as a family and had great results. From my experience I would say it improved my focus and clarity, giving me a sense of wellbeing. I felt more productive and efficient. As a family, it reduced everyone’s stress level and allowed for our time together to be more relaxed and enjoyable. I am glad we did it. — Home User
