Neuromodulation treatment applications such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), rapid transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and EEG Neurofeedback can be used to treat clinically significant brain abnormalities detected on brain mapping. Among these various neuromodulation applications, Neurofeedback currently has the widest range of clinical applications. Although Neurofeedback has been used as a clinical tool since the 1960s, brain mapping neurofeedback using LORETA software is a relatively recent development dating back to approximately 2008. This technology uses advancements made over the past 15 years mapping multiple brain circuits responsible for a plethora of human experiences; from basic functions such as sustaining wakefulness to complex functions such as decision-making.
Clinically, sLORETA Neurofeedback is rapidly growing around the globe as a treatment application to alter brain networks that are not functioning at their optimal levels. In non-clinical populations, brain mapping Neurofeedback is also being used to enhance performance and cognitive functions such as reaction time and decision speed in individuals who are functioning in highly-competitive environments.
