Neurofeedback is a Neurotherapy technique that measures a client’s brain activity to help them understand how a situation or stimulus changes their brain activity and the effect of implementing strategies to regulate their brain activity for optimal functioning.
Sometimes, clients may experience anxiety when performing cognitive tasks, which can lead to performance “choking”. This looks like a decline in performance of a task as the client enters an anxious emotional state. For example, a client may feel overwhelmed when they have to attend to many stimuli in a short amount of time, such as when one must dual-task. By using neurofeedback while a client completes a cognitive exercise involving dual tasking, this may help the client learn how to conquer their anxiety and perform the cognitive task with success.
