What is an EEG? An EEG is an acronym or abbreviation for Electroencephalogram. The word electro comes from Latin via Greek Mythology. Elektra was the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra from Greek Mythology, and her name translates to the word for Amber....
Can You Do Neurofeedback At Home?
Yes, you can do neurofeedback at home. Advances in the internet and neurofeedback equipment now allow clients to receive neurofeedback remotely from anywhere in the world.
Neurofeedback teaches self-control of brain functions by measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal. To learn more about neurofeedback, please read the article; What Is Neurofeedback.
During a home neurofeedback session, clients connect with Myneurva Brain Tuners using remote meeting technology and advanced neurofeedback software.
Clients receive a Myneurva BrainStation in the mail, which includes all the needed neurofeedback equipment including your own EEG cap with 19 sensors, a laptop, gel and applicators, and an EEG amplifier. Please read the article to learn more about neurofeedback pricing today!
During your first session, your Brain Tuner meets with you through a remote meeting and guides you through the process of putting on your electro cap. The electro cap needs gel to secure the connection between the electro cap and your brain.
The Brain Tuner guides you during this process to connect the cap to the amplifier and computer, and you make the first recording of your brainwave activity.
This first reading of your brain scan is called a QEEG and is the baseline used by the NeuroPractors to write protocols for your training sessions. Electrical activity is recorded simultaneously from the sensors on your cap, first with eyes closed and then with eyes open, as you sit comfortably in your home or at your office.
The QEEG reading is the first step, and the team at Myneurva uses this data as the client’s baseline for your neurofeedback training. Once you have finalized the training schedule with your Brain Tuner, you prepare for your session 15 minutes before your start time. This time is when you turn on your laptop, put on your cap, and apply the gel. The Brain Tuner then joins you in Zoom to ensure your cap and connection are working correctly, and you begin your training sessions.
The sessions are typically one hour. During the hour, you participate in thirty minutes of an eyes-open session and thirty minutes of an eyes-closed session. All equipment needed comes in your suitcase, and all sessions are run automatically by the Brain Tuner. You can easily transport your Myneurva NF suitcase with you if you need to travel or attend a session at a different location.
What Equipment Is Needed for Neurofeedback at Home?
You will not have to worry about anything. Myneurva will send you everything you need for neurofeedback training in a sturdy plastic suitcase. The suitcase includes the neurofeedback computer, gel, a cap, amplifier, cables, ear clips, and applicator gel. As long as you have a comfortable chair and wifi, you will be all set.
What Is The Process For Neurofeedback At Home?
Home neurofeedback is comfortable and convenient and is the main way Myneurva clients receive their neurofeedback training to improve their mental health.
Step 1. Before Your Training Sessions Begin
You will have a 30-minute consultation with the NeuroPractor to discuss if NF is the best treatment for you. When you have finalized your treatment plan, you will receive an invoice and intake forms. Once you have received the equipment, we will discuss your daily availability and confirm your training schedule.
Step 2. Your Initial QEEG (Brainscan)
This first reading of your brain scan is called a QEEG and is the baseline used by the NeuroPractors to write protocols for your training sessions. While you sit comfortably at home (or at your office), electrical activity is recorded simultaneously at all 19 sensors on your cap, first with eyes closed and then with eyes open.
The QEEG reading is the first step, and the team at Myneurva uses this data as the client’s baseline for training. EEG Data is then loaded into our Patented EEG Reading Software called Advanced Neuro Network Analysis (ANNA), who assists our Experts in matching your brainwaves to others we have scanned to determine what issues in the brain that need to be improved.
Step 3. Discuss With Your Neurofeedback Expert
In your first neurofeedback training session, one of our Myneurva Neuropractors will review your scan and training and rehabilitation protocols.
Myneurva’s Neuropractors consist of medical doctors, and psychologists who have extensive experience in the field of Neurofeedback.
Step 4 Begin your Training
Your sessions are scheduled in advance and attended by a Braintuner and Neuropractor. During the first part of the training, you get to watch a video of your choice. Myneurva has hundreds of hours of videos to choose from, but we can also get you whatever you would like to watch.
Step 5 Attend your first 10 sessions of Neurofeedback
It is typical to begin noticing results by session seven, although some people notice results faster. Once you have reached session 10, another EEG is recorded to be checked for changes.
Step 6. Attend Sessions 11-20
In session eleven, the new results are reviewed with your Neuropractor and a new training and rehabilitation protocol is loaded. The next set of sessions proceeds as the first ten with each session getting progressively more difficult. In session 20, a third EEG is recorded for analysis.
Step 7. Review and Compare
After the training sessions, you are scheduled to review with your Neuropractor, where you compare the changes in your brain from the first session to the last. If needed, follow booster sessions may be recommended.
After 20 sessions, most individuals have completed their neurofeedback training and we ship our Brainstation back to Myneurva Logistics Headquarters.
Home Neurofeedback Tips
You cannot have styling products in your hair because you will apply the gel, and products could stop the connection. You cannot wear earrings during training sessions. Be sure to be capped and ready 15 minutes before the scheduled appointment, so if any problems arise, this will not affect the time needed for your training session. That’s it, you are ready to begin your neurofeedback training to improve your mental health.
