Brain Biofeedback

My experiences with brain biofeedback or neurofeedback at the ADD Centre

Solar eclipses, futzing with photos on my computer for the first time in 2017 (Yikes! Been that long?!!!), styling the ebook of Concussion Is Brain Injury, makes a gal rather tired and brain biofeedback a struggle. My EMG was decent except during the HRV screen, the one that’s supposed to induce relaxation and prep me […]

OMG. The brightness, the clarity, the colours popping and sharp are almost as overwhelming as right after my eye surgery. We trained a new area this past week in brain biofeedback.

I met last month with the CCAC Clinical Director (I think that’s his title) and my new CCAC care co-ordinator, the one for Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) for the entire huge city of Toronto. I’m gonna get help! After my eye surgery, all my plans for updating my book Concussion Is Brain Injury flew out […]
