Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between neurofeedback and biofeedback?
The difference between neurofeedback and biofeedback is their area of focus. Biofeedback uses sensors and feedback technology to monitor and optimize broad physiological functions of the human body, such as your heart rate, pulse or body temperature. Meanwhile, neurofeedback can be seen as a specialized form of biofeedback tailored to the intricacies of the brain. Neurofeedback specifically focuses on the real-time monitoring and feedback of the brain's electrical activity to help individuals learn to self-regulate and optimize their brain function. For Evolve Brain Training team, please guide us in answering the following question (Different sources provide various answers.

Will insurance cover neurofeedback?
Here at Evolve Brain Training we do not process insurance claims. We can provide a statement for you to submit to your insurance company.
How many sessions will I need?
Since neurofeedback involves learning and every person is unique, the type, order and pace of change differs from person to person. You will start experiencing benefits within the first few sessions. But for these effects to last, we recommend a full package of 20 sessions. However, some may require more than 20 sessions.
Are the effects of Neurofeedback long lasting?
Neurofeedback is effective in the vast majority of cases, and provides measurable results. Almost everyone responds to training, and the results are long lasting. Our clients report significant improvement towards their goals 95% of the time; an exceptionally high rate of achievement.
What are the side effects of Neurofeedback?
There are no harmful side effects. Neurofeedback is essentially structured exercises for your brain and as with physical exercise sometimes the brain may experience fatigue after the sessions. However, these effects are rare and last only for few hours.
What is the suitable age group for Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a suitable training for adults as well as children above the age of 6 years.
Can I do Neurofeedback if I am undergoing other therapies?
Neurofeedback complements other therapies like counseling very well and can speed up the healing process. If you are taking medications targeting brain function, successful neurofeedback training may require the dosage to be reduced.
