Neurofeedback is an interesting field, because it is not just one technique done a standard way across all clinicians and therapists. The field has changed over time, adding new understanding of how the brain works, and how it "should" work. In keeping with new scientific knowledge, new techniques and protocols have been added. In our office, we have the ability to train in many of these techniques, and we use some of the most up to date software and hardware in the indust
