What is Infra Low HD Neurofeedback?

Infra-low Frequency High Definition Neurofeedback is a cutting-edge brain training technology developed by Sue and Siegfried Othmer, pioneers in the field of neurofeedback for 30 years at the EEG Institute in California. The Othmer method, also referred to as Cygnet, treats the most sensitive nervous systems and high arousal conditions such as ADHD, bipolar, the autism spectrum, attachment issues and post-traumatic stress.

Cygnet is not a “one-size-fits-all” method of neurofeedback that is commonly used with home training systems that have limited results. We understand that each person’s brain is wired differently and this needs to be taken into consideration when developing an individualized treatment plan for neurofeedback.

ILF HD Trains Resting States
of the Brain

The Othmers discovered through the years of research and clinical practice that the brain responds best to training at very low frequencies, under .1 Hz. The reason that ILF HD is so effective is that it works on the brain’s primary regulatory or resting state networks that are the core control networks of the nervous system. The result is that the training establishes a feedback loop that enhances the brain’s own capacity for self-regulation.

Low frequency brain waves are involved in regulating the communication and timing between various areas of the brain. These brain wave acts like a conductor of an orchestra, managing the patterns of brain activity as an integrated whole. If the timing and speed of communication between brain regions are off, the brain will not be operating in an optimal way, resulting in impaired brain function. The low frequencies teach the brain to function better by organizing the coordination of neural networks and this is experienced as a greater sense of calm, clarity and ease for the individual.
