Is Neurofeedback like Electric Shock Therapy?

Posted 09 October

No, definitely not.  Electric Shock Therapy or Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a procedure which involves stimulating the brain and inducing a seizure on the patient which can only be administered by a medical practitioner (usually a psychiatrist) and an anaesthetist in a hospital environment.

The advanced Neurofeedback technology which we use at Brain Training Australia do not stimulate the brain, and there is no electrical current going into the brain.  Instead, it is a natural way of training the brain through the process of Neuroplasticity.
