pIR Neurofeedback



A New Chapter in Neurofeedback – Passive Infrared (pIR)

With the new optional pIR sensors you can measure the change in metabolic rate resulting from elevated neuronal activity. This form of Neurofeedback is in no way intended to replace traditional EEG; however, it does have several advantages in day to day practice that our clients are sure to appreciate:

Requires a fraction of the setup time (No impedance, No Gel and Paste)
The signal is more stable
The signal is less subject to artifact from electrical noise
The signal is less subject to artifact from eye or facial movements
The results are easier to interpret
Most patients will achieve training results faster


The device incorporates two very sensitive and highly accurate passive infrared (pIR) sensors mounted on a lightweight, ergonomic headset to provide responsive and unimpeded monitoring and training of radiated infrared temperature emission, over the frontal area.

Research is being done around the world with pIR on migraines, autism, ADHD, cognitive performance, and alleviating depression, stress, and chronic anxiety. The research is still in the early stages, but so far the results are quite promising.



The point of the  passive infrared (pIR) training is to learn to increase the blood flow to the prefrontal cortex. Though increased neuronal activity is involved here, there are many others things at play. Here is a good place to start to learn more about it.  You do have to have the  NI2 6.02 update in order to use this sensor.  


Why purchase the pIR sensor. . . for those patients with severe migraines, attention and impulse control, mood and stress control and sensory gating issues.
