Up to 20 electrodes are attached to the child's head. Levels of electrical activity in various parts of the brain are measured and entered into a computer. The computer provides a signal, such as a light or tone. This "feedback" is supposed to teach the child to increase certain kinds of brain-wave activity and decrease other types. Training usually involves 40-80 sessions, each lasting 40 minutes or more. This "treatment" costs $3,00 ...
