|Glossary:|| This compendium of terms is provided to broaden the lay person’s understanding of some of the relative concepts and language related to the field of Neurofeedback. The term “Neurofeedback” can be used interchangeably with EEG Neurotherapy, EEG Neurofeedback, HEG Neurofeedback.
A specialized Neurofeedback protocol intended to address issues such as chronic trauma, addiction, pain and more. This process is also referred to as the “Peniston protocol,” so named after the work of researchers Peniston and Kulkosky, who successfully used alpha-theta brain-wave training to increase the amount and amplitude of subjects’ alpha and theta brain waves. Alpha-Theta is similar to hypnosis in that it provides a state of relaxation that can induce an altered state of awareness, allowing the subconscious mind to review issues and find apt resolutions, circumventing the need for rational analysis.Arousal and Performance Curve
Brain activity can be considered in terms of states of arousal. Optimum performance can be achieved by maintaining a state of normalized arousal; a relaxed alertness sometimes described by peak performers as a “flow state.” Neurofeedback provides continuous feedback to the brain, conditioning it to operate at its ideal arousal peak.

Operant Conditioning Operant conditioning, so named by psychologist B. F. Skinner, is a term referring to learning that occurs when an association between behavior and its consequences is made. Another explanation is based on the concept that learning is a function of change in behavior as the result of a reinforcing and conditioning stimulus-response pattern in a step-by-step procedure to affect changes over time. It is also known as response-stimulus or RS conditioning.
