Sleep Disorders Neurofeedback

Sleep well, think well!
The brain is in constant state of tension between cells and chemicals that try to put you to sleep and calls and chemicals that try to keep you awake. The neurons of your brain show vigorous rhythmical activity when you’re asleep perhaps replaying what you learned that day. Loss of sleep hurts attention, executive function, working memory. mood. logical reasoning, and even motor dexterity.
