What is NFT?

Neurofeedback-therapy is a method through which the brain is exercised. It strengthens the brain, calms it and improves stability. In short, it rewires the brain.

After birth the brain develops by being exposed to new stimuli. If the wiring is defective, new stimuli cause disorganisation of new information.

To rewire the brain, we make use of neurofeedback-therapy. This treatment stimulates metabolism and blood flow, strengthens dendritic connections as well as the functioning of neurotransmitters, which accounts for improvement in the patient’s ability to carry out cognitive tasks successfully.

How did NFT originate?

The conventional treatment of epilepsy includes intake of different kinds of anti convulsants. Sometimes a patient does not respond effectively to a specific anti convulsant. Although medication controls epilepsy to a certain degree, there are patients who still have seizures, despite the fact that they take their medication regularly.

As an alternative to medication, the Americans started with a therapy called neurotherapy during the eighties, controlling epilepsy with great success.

Dr. Sterman conducted an experiment on cats for NASA, that measured the effect of monomethylhydrazine, (a toxic rocket fuel), which causes epilepsy and even death in man and animals.

He found that cats that suffered from epilepsy and were treated with neurotherapy, had fewer seizures and also had a longer life span than the untreated cats. Americans started treating people with the same kind of therapy with great success.

Today neurofeedback-therapy is recognised as a successful supportive treatment of epilepsy. There are numerous neurofeedback systems on the makret. This practice makes use of EEG Spectrum’s and Brain Master’s Systems.
