Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback for the brain. Neurofeedback uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography, to help retrain the brian's responses.
I had a good experience the few times I did it and noticed a difference in mental sharpness.
At ocean park natural therapies with Janise Lea O'leandros, I did maybe 24 sessions with Janise. It helped a lot and were I was tired all the time they sped up my brain activity for daytime and slowed down at eyes closed stat and allowed me to rest. I am now not near as tired as I was before the concussions

Neurofeedback, or neuro biofeedback, has been one of my most effective rehabilitation strategies. It is incredibly effective at improving so many of the symptoms of TBI at the same time- attention, mood, cognition, pain, sleep. — You are hooked up to an EEG, which will monitor your brain waves. It is frequently described as acting as a mirror which allows your brain to realize it has been doing something incorrectly, which then allows the brain to heal itself in that correction. I would watch a movie attached to the neurofeedback equipment. When I was fully concentrated, a drum “reward” would play. If my brain waves showed distraction or stress, the sound and, eventually, the display would fade, which my brain would obviously interpret as negative feedback. —- I spent one week doing two sessions per day because I was only home for spring break. That week was brutally exhausting, but it gave me the most noticeable improvements up to that point (about two years post-accident.) I felt as if the fog had lifted. My mood, concentration, and anxiety all improved drastically.
I think this treatment is very effective but I didn’t see results personally. I do know it has helped a lot of my friends who are athletes as well as other TBI survivors.
