Applied neuroscience is the name of the emerging field aimed at translating the latest findings from brain science into interventions to help improve human functioning. Neurofeedback (also called EEG biofeedback) is one of the best developed approaches for applied neuroscience in clinical use today. Working with Dr. Ed Hamlin, one of the leading figures in neurofeedback, Avalon Hills has pioneered the application of this technique to help their clients with Eating Disorders. Neurofeedback is completely non-invasive, and involves tailoring brain exercises to help people learn to regulate their emotions and gain control over their attention and focus in ways that can lead to improved functioning, a more positive emotional state, and enhanced peace of mind.
