Hemoencephalography (HEG) neurofeedback uses measures of metabolic activity under the sensor, which is usually located on the forehead. This enables the user to learn how to activate the area below the sensor, usually the pre-frontal cortex, an area of the brain that is associated with executive functions (planning, delaying gratification, monitoring/managing emotions by overseeing and regulating limbic structures, making choices, social control, goal orientation, personality expression, focusing attention, cognitive analysis and abstract thinking, assessing multiple streams of information, etc…).  Learning how to activate this region can be an invaluable skill for anyone to develop.  At NeuroTransformation Center we use both forms of this technique (nir- and pir-HEG).
