Many people wonder about the difference of these three important concepts:
Electro-encephalogram (EEG), Neuro-Feedback, and Biofeedback.
It is all part of one same family. For example, an EEG is when sensors are placed on clients’ heads to capture their electrical activity. These electrical activity provides information on the functioning of the brain (e.g., anxiety, ADHD, depression, emotional pain, etc.). Similarly, “neuro” is related to our nerves, nervous system, neuron… In the Neurofeedback community, it technically refers to our brain. Lastly, Bio “bio” refers to our bodies. In order to do “Biofeedback” sensors are placed on the clients’ body (e.g., to capture pulse) and see how is their psycho-physiological status (e.g., anxious, worried, etc). It works similarly as when going to our regular doctor and checking our heart blood pressure (e.g., it is high or low).
