Clinical depression is a disorder of the brain’s affective system and is characterized by a low or depressed mood, loss of interest and pleasure in almost all activities and low energy. Classic symptoms of depression include feeling overwhelmed, worn out, tired, sad, isolated, foggy brained and disconnected.
Research at Keck Imaging Labs at the University of Wisconsin shows that depressed people experience a reduction of activity in the left side of the brain which is responsible for engaging in positive moods. When these brainwaves are abnormal, your mood can become depressed.
Zone Psychology uses BrainCore Neurofeedback therapy to treat depression by normalizing brainwaves into organized and healthy patterns.
How Can Neurofeedback Help Depression?
BrainCore Neurofeedback, also called EEG biofeedback or neurotherapy, is a drug-free, non-invasive natural approach to depression.
When treating depression with neurofeedback, the therapist places an electrode on the scalp over each side of the brain. Although the technology is quite sophisticated, the process is simple and painless. The patient learns to alter brain activity through feedback and practice, and the goal is to increase alpha brain waves on the right side while reducing it on the left.
As the left side of the brain becomes more active, individuals begin to feel more positive in their moods. The abnormal brainwave activity diminishes throughout training sessions, and brainwave patterns improve.
