Black Therapists Rock has been working to bring awareness and education about biofeedback and neurofeedback to the BTR community. Thanks to Harry Campbell and Biofeedback Resources International, free videos are now available to the public.
We want to share the video EEG & Anxiety with you.
Electroencephalography (EEG) is a powerful neuroscience tool that has shed light on many aspects of brain function, including its connection with anxiety. Anxiety disorders affect millions of people worldwide, and understanding the neural basis of anxiety is important for developing effective treatments.
EEG measures electrical activity in the brain through electrodes placed on the scalp, providing insights into brainwave patterns. Research has shown that people with anxiety disorders tend to exhibit distinct EEG patterns compared to those without anxiety. Specifically, increased activity in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain is associated with heightened anxiety.
Identifying these EEG markers has practical implications. For example, neurofeedback therapy, which uses real-time EEG data to train individuals to regulate their brain activity, has shown promise in reducing anxiety symptoms. Also, EEG can help researchers study the effects of anxiety treatments, such as medications and psychotherapy, by tracking changes in brainwave patterns over time.
As our understanding of EEG and anxiety continues to evolve, it holds the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of this widespread mental health issue. You may find that EEG and neurofeedback can enhance your work with anxiety clients.
