A quick biofeedback primer

NEUROFEEDBACK Neuro-feedback is a way to train brain activity. It is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It is helpful for people that have brain imbalances. Basically it is a kind of biofeedback, which teaches self-control of brain functions to subjects by measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal. Brain waves tells […]

Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS)

This is a new technology in the field of non –invasive electrical stimulation of the human brain and it is directly having an interference with the cortical rhythms. tACS is the external application of oscillating electrical currents and it has the ability to influence cortical excitability and activity. The expectation is to synchronise or desynchronize with a since resonance […]
