What is LENS Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a specific and patented type of biofeedback for the brain. The LENS system monitors brainwave activity real time and the gives feedback to the brain, interrupting maladaptive brainwave patterns and allowing the brain to reset and regulate itself in a more healthy way. It is natural, and brings balance to the brain by helping the brain decrease or increase fast and slow brain waves that may interfere with performance.
The LENS is a specific kind of Neurofeedback that operates much more rapidly that traditional Neurofeedback and has qualities that make it much easier to use with people who can’t sit still. With the LENS, the client doesn’t need to “do” anything, and there is nothing to learn. The typical session with the LENS lasts 3-4 minutes. This means that the LENS works well for people who either cannot or will not pay attention to a computer screen for longer time periods. Additionally, the LENS works much faster than traditional Neurofeedback with the number of sessions ranging from as few as 1 to an overall average number of sessions of 20.

The patient sits passively, while the brain receives direct feedback information – an individualized treatment pattern based on a real-time EEG recording – through the sensors in the form of EEG brainwaves. The individualized information is then processed by the client’s own brain, which is able to reorganize any maladaptive patterns into more effective and efficient patterns.
This technology utilizes neuroplasticity, or the ability for the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning. The signal sent through the EEG sensors makes it possible for your brain to see its own dysfunctional pattern, and learn/adapt/grow into something better.
Traditional neurofeedback requires conscious attention and training for 45-60 minute sessions. Results are typically attained over 40 or more sessions.
LENS does not require any focused attention, and the person does not need to do anything specific during the session. The active sessions themselves last between a few seconds and a few minutes. Initial results are typically seen in 1-4 sessions, with an average number of 11 sessions per client. This makes the LENS an excellent option for all individuals, including those who are unable to attend for lengthy periods of time and/or who are unable to understand instructions.
Patients across the lifespan, from young children to older adults, have benefited from LENS.
