- Why do we need stops during Melomind™ sessions?
A neurofeedback session with Melomind™ is an engaging exercise that involves the person. In the literature neurofeedback exercises are built this way. The breaks are necessary because you have to be attentive during the whole neurofeedback session (this is especially true when the sessions last more than 12 minutes).
- What is the difference between each state (active, calm and deep relaxation)?
Each state depends on the production of alpha during exercise.
You learn even in the active state. As long as you are aware that you are performing a neurofeedback exercise, you are working.
- How do you know you are making progress?
You know you're progressing by feeling. Don't hesitate to ask yourself every day how you feel.
A survey is available on the application Melomind™ which allows you to evaluate your well-being.

- Is it possible to built neuronal connections?
It is indeed possible to build again neuronal connections, but it is not known whether this can be done via neurofeedback.
Neurons are constantly rearranging themselves. Connections are destroyed and new ones are built.
Neurofeedback makes targeted networks work. We cannot claim to initiate the genesis of new neuronal connections outside the networks targeted by neurofeedback (it is quite possible, but we don't know).
- Are there other techniques other than neurofeedback to train our brain?
Meditation will change the brain's functioning (the activation of certain regions) but in an indirect way (modulations of the orientation of attention and not feedback of brain activity). Meditators are not monitoring their activity in real time.
The method specifically dedicated to train the brain is neurofeedback, but changes in brain organization or activity are not specific to neurofeedback.
- Is there a brain wave frequency associated with stress?
There is no stress-associated brain wave frequency because it is relative to its basal level.
Various factors or contexts can generate stress. The treatment of these elements can be associated with specific brain patterns.
- Why do we measure only alpha waves?
Alpha waves are the predominant waves for relaxation.
If other waves were worked on, the focus would shift from relaxation to other things.
- Is there a difference in neuro-plasticity in relation to the sex or age of the people?
In relation to age yes, but this does not prevent the use of neurofeedback in elderly people, often to improve certain cognitive performances (working memory, etc...).
