Neurofeedback for Stroke Recovery

A number of deficits experienced after a stroke can be helped with neurofeedback. Neurofeedback helps connectivity and timing in the brain, and specific areas of the brain can be targeted to have the most impact.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a method of exercising the brain in order to change its function and eventually its structure over time. Individuals are connected up to a computer using sensors to detect the small electrical impulses (brainwaves) that make their way through the skull to the scalp

These are some common deficits of a stroke that can be helped:
  • Speech
  • Movement
  • Mood regulation
  • Better behavior control
  • Headache reduction
