ScienceDaily (Mar. 12, 2010) ” Significant changes in brain plasticity
have been observed following alpha brainwave training.
A pioneering collaboration between two laboratories from the University of
London has provided the first evidence of neuroplastic changes occurring
directly after natural brainwave training. Researchers from Goldsmiths and
the Institute of Neurology have demonstrated that half an hour of voluntary
control of brain rhythms is sufficient to induce a lasting shift in cortical
excitability and intracortical function.”
Remarkably, these after-effects are comparable in magnitude to those
observed following interventions with artificial forms of brain stimulation
involving magnetic or electrical pulses. The novel finding may have important
implications for future non-pharmacological therapies of the brain and calls
for a serious re-examination and stronger backing of research on
neurofeedback, a technique which may be promising tool to modulate cerebral
plasticity in a safe, painless, and natural way.
