Clinical Application of ISF Neurofeedback in PTSD

I am a registered psychotherapist and occupational therapist who is board certified in neurofeedback. My clients tend to be military veterans who are highly hypervigilant or utterly burned out from years of hypervigilance. More than a few of my clients have been “sleeping” fully clothed in a recliner chair and waking up several times per […]

Recent Article Finds that ISF Neurofeedback Training Promotes Sleep

A recent study by Bekker et al. (2021) investigated the effect of infraslow neurofeedback therapy on sleep and identified significant positive change in sleep duration, latency, efficiency and overall sleep quality. A poor night’s sleep can wreak significant damage on physical health, mental health, and emotional well-being. Even one night without sleep can result in […]

There are many types of psychotherapy including psychotherapies that help patients change behaviors or thought patterns, psychotherapies that help patients explore the effect of past relationships and experiences on present behaviors, and psychotherapies that are tailored to help solve other problems in specific ways. For example, when using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a common type […]

Why Does ISF Training Need Special Equipment?

In conventional neurofeedback we reward the increasing or the inhibiting of a targeted metric or bandwidth. This can be done because of the nature of the signal and equipment we use to measure it. The regular cycling of the sinusoidal signal can be measured by an alternating current amplifier. Tin and gold sensors can hold […]

How Does ISF Impact the Brain and Body?

Researchers have proposed that the ISF is generated from two possible sources: Neuronal activity (electrical or mechanical stimulation, neurotransmitters, neuronal activity). Neuronal activity results in decreased oxygen. This stimulates calcium waves. Spontaneous activity (astrocyte clock gene expression results in calcium waves). The production of calcium waves induces oscillation in a type of glial cell called […]

How is ISF Different Than Other Neurofeedback?

The distinctive impact of ISF neurofeedback resides in the training of the “ISF band” which is below 1 Hertz. The physiological changes and regulation of the autonomic nervous system that we see in ISF training occur simply because those are the functions that are coordinated by that band. ISF is considered an ‘organizing’ rhythm; promoting […]
