Why is Boston NeuroDynamics different?
Here at Boston NeuroDynamics we are a culturally diverse group and take pride in our highly individualized and holistic approach to brain training.
We combine neurofeedback, biofeedback, talk therapy, and many other modalities to help you acheive your goals. Our brain mapping includes a qEEG, ERP, and intake forms to understand the whole picture. We then use this to work together to create and indivudual t plan.
Boston NeuroDynamics has an incredible team of clinicians and associates that are here to support you on your journey. Read more about us and our team here.
What is neurofeedback and how does it work?
Neurofeedback is a process with a few different steps. We start off with a brain mapping and intake. Then together, we use that information to develop a plan, which can include neurofeedback, biofeedback, therapy, and more. The neurofeedback sessions themselves are based on real time feedback to help train your brain. Because neurofeedback is a learning process, it takes time for your brain to learn and we are constantly checking in, re-evalulating, and modifying our plan.

What is brain map (qEEg) and how does it work?
Brain mapping is the first step in Neurofeedback training. A qEEG, or Quantitative Electroencephalography, is an assessment where we record the electrical activity of the brain (EEG) from 19 locations on the scalp. This is non-invasive, passive and just records what is going on. We then compare this to a “normal” data set to determine what areas of the brain and what activity we want to train.
