Control your brainwaves

BrainTrainUK Neurofeedback
24 September 2015

Brainwaves have always fascinated me. As a musician, the idea of understanding the brain though frequency is compelling.

You can measure your brainwaves with an EEG (electroencephalogram) – a device that measures and records electrical activity across your scalp. Despite this being a fairly primitive form of brain recording, the data can give you valuable insights as it offers a tool to observe your brain ‘state’ (and therefore infer its function) in a simple way. This can be used as a diagnostic tool for epilepsy and as a therapeutic tool for attention disorders such as ADHD.

Run by Stuart Black, BrainTrainUK have been providing neurofeedback as therapy for years. Neurofeedback uses EEG to give you real time feedback on how your brain is performing. Austrian management consultant and philosopher Peter Drucker is commonly credited with the quote “What gets measured gets managed”. In this case, the measurements of your brain states help you develop better self-regulation of brain function. As technology develops and EEG machines become cheaper, smaller and more available, people will be able to use this technology at home. You will soon be able to use them to improve your mental performance and skill.
