Neurocore: Neurofeedback Education H

uman brains are amazing organs in the body. They are the source of behaviors and emotions, perceptions and thoughts. The brain is made up of millions of microscopic neutrons that tend to use chemical signals in regulating various activities in human brain. These neurons allow human beings to function, think, feel and digest complex information.

The recent advancement in EGG technology and brain mapping have led to the development of neurofeedback and have given researchers a better way of understanding how the human brain works and what they can do to improve brains’ functions.

We can’t talk about neuroscience without mentioning two gentlemen, Luigi Galvani, and Alessandro Volta. These people are recognized worldwide as the forefathers of bioelectric and electrophysiology education. In an experiment, Galvani connected frog legs to the iron fence during heavy lightning storms. The moment the lightning flashed, the legs of the frog contracted. Volta came to realize that, the contractions were caused by the electrical aspect in the metal-saline interfaces. Volta proved theory in 1800.

An electroencephalogram is a test to detect electrical activities in the human brain using non-invasive metal discs known as electrodes. The electrodes are put on the scalp so that they can pick up the electrical impulses in brain. These impulses act as the transmitters of communication throughout the brain. One of the ancient uses of electroencephalogram was a diagnostic test for epilepsy. Currently, electroencephalogram is used to treat and diagnose mental maladies and disorders such as sleep disorders, encephalopathy, stroke, brain dysfunction, brain tumors, and encephalitis.

Quantitative Electroencephalography is a way of recording the activities of the electroencephalogram using a computerized gadget. While the work of standard electroencephalography is to record electrical activities, quantitative electroencephalography applies statistics and algorithms in comparing these records with records of other gender and age controlled databases. The quantitative electroencephalography method allows clinical officers and doctors in creating a roadmap in the brain by combining quantitative comparisons and thorough measurements.

Numerous channels of EGG data is processed by use of algorithms such as Fourier and wavelet. Those brain maps are used to monitor the progress of a patient to the intended mental orders.
