Brain Training for ADHD Symptoms

Neuroscience has shown that certain brainwaves are associated with our experience of being alert and focused. 

For example, scientist have found that people with ADHD often show different brainwave patterns than people without ADHD.

How do Brain Waves relate to ADHD?

It is common for people with ADHD to show more of the Theta brain wave in the front part of their brain.  This pattern is often associated with 

  • Difficulties with attention
  • Impulse control problems
  • Disorganization

People with ADHD often have problems with impulse control which can be associated with the amount of Theta brain waves they have.

High Theta Brain Waves contribute to feeling distracted, impulsive and checked out.

When someone has more Theta brain waves than expected it’s like they are driving around with air in the brake lines.  It affects the systems ability to stop the car.  This is one of the reasons people with ADHD have difficulty controlling their impulses.  Their brakes are not as fluid or quick; instead there is a delay.

So, in general, when Theta brain waves go up, you’re distracted, impulsive and check out.  

The good news is that Brain Waves can be trained so that Theta returns to a typical level. Brain Training Neurofeedback can train your brain to make less Theta Brain Waves so that you are more focused and calm.

At my office I use scientific equipment and software to train your brain to use a more effective pattern of brainwaves so that you experience more calm focus.
