Various frequency components
Frequency components are important for neurofeedback. Delta, theta, alpha, and beta frequencies all play a role in brain function. Each frequency has its own benefits and drawbacks.
Disregulation in delta waves may also lead to sleep disorders. However, they are also responsible for long distance communications between the neurons, so they are also very important.
Theta frequencies are associated with creativity and intuition. Theta waves can also help improve focus and memory. However, theta frequencies can also lead to anxiety and stress.
Alpha frequencies are associated with relaxation and reduced heart rate. This is why alpha-based neurofeedback protocols are often recommended to help ease stress and anxiety. However, alpha frequencies can also lead to boredom or inattention.
Beta frequencies are associated with concentration. They can also encourage the release of dopamine and serotonin, which promote happiness. However, this frequency range may induce stress when used for long periods of time.
It is important to consider all of these factors when choosing a frequency range for neurofeedback. Ultimately, the goal is to find provide a protocol that focuses on the specific brain regions and networks that would help you optimize your brain activity. When using swLORETA neurofeedback, you can optimize all of these frequencies simultaneously at the most comprehensive level.
