Neurofeedback is changing lives. Never before have we been able to work so precisely with the human brain to bring about these exciting changes. Fortunately, those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury usually respond powerfully and quickly to neurofeedback.

Professor John Gruzelier, from Imperial College London at Charing Cross hospital commented "Neurofeedback has been proven to be effective in altering brain activity, but the extent to which such alterations can influence behavior are still unknown." Notice that he did not place a cap on what is possible; he is simply saying, in so many words, thi s much we know, and we need to see what else there is to know .

Neurofeedback epitomizes the phrase "seeing is believing." The ability to see what the brain is doing in real time, and continue to watch as it makes changes and improvements, shifting effortlessly from one frequency to another depending on the context and the task, is a marvelous demonstration of the complexity of the human brain and nervous system.

Case studies show that, among other things, patients are delightfully surprised to see a return of their short term memory, ability to organize, prioritize and sequence, and overall, get a sense of things being normal again, after the appropriate number of neurofeedback sessions.

Tito continues to progress, both mentally and physically, is beginning to recognize written words, and also smiles more.
