EEG basics – why is it useful for therapists?

EEG basics

It is essential for biofeedback therapists to know the basics of EEG! During biofeedback therapies, neurofeedback therapies, sensors are placed at different points on the patient’s body, one type of these is EEG chips attached to specific points on the head. Essentially, this is an electrophysiological measuring device that can record the electrical activity of nerve cells, the brain waves, in real time. It is a widely used measurement in clinical practice to detect certain diseases and brain dysfunctions. Neurofeedback and biofeedback also use EEG to measure brain waves and to balance them in therapy.
