What is Neurofeedback?

One of the therapies that we have in the Armonk area is Neurofeedback therapy. This type of therapy is a non-invasive form of treatment. During the process, a practitioner studies the information (feedback) of the brainwaves (neuro) and reinforces the change.* In order to diminish the symptoms, the brain self-regulates to calm the nervous system. Central nervous problems can arise if the brain does not self-regulate such as anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms. If you are wondering if the Neurofeedback therapy does work, we can say that around 90% of our neurofeedback patients have had significant change or symptom reduction since going under this type of therapy. Although this kind of therapy has positive results for most patients, we don’t guarantee that this type of therapy does work for everyone. On the other hand, Biofeedback is different because it focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

At our office serving Armonk, we also provide Biofeedback therapy as well. In the process of Biofeedback, we learn to control the client’s bodily functions such as the breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. Our Armonk practitioners connect electrical sensors to the clients to measure and provide informational feedback about the body (bio). This information allows the ability to record and take control of subtle changes such as relaxing the muscles or reducing stress. This type of therapy is different from neurofeedback because it deals with controlling one’s autonomic functions. Allowing the control of one’s body can improve the health of them*

What is QEEG?

Quantitative electroencephalogram, also known as a QEEG is a type of brain map that deals with measuring the electrical patterns of the surface of the scalp. These types of patterns reflect cortical activity. A computer analysis of the EEG data is a quantitative EEG. With the EEG data, it is compared to the reference database of someone else’s standard set of EEG. Certain patterns can be symptoms of depression, anxiety, and much more. With the QEEG, it can be used for both treatment planning and progress.* Dr. Roseann will sit with you to review the results and discuss about any solutions best for you. With the results of your QEEG and clinical intake, she will decide what treatment will work best. Contact our office serving Armonk for any questions or concerns!

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback assists a person in learning how to modify their own brainwave activity. We monitor brain function and show live feedback to our clients through the use of computers. We utilize them to reduce or promote different brainwave frequencies and reward the brain when it changes its own activity to promote more appropriate patterns. New electrical activity is actually formed in the brain through this reinforcement and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into more regulated and desirable performance. As the brain learns to self-regulate, the changes in activity result in symptom reduction.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step is to create a QEEG Brain Map, a procedure that records and statistically analyzes EEG activity. At your meeting with Dr. Roseann, you will review the brain map and make a treatment plan together. You can immediately start your Neurofeedback sessions once a protocol is designed. The necessary number of sessions varies based on the individual, but usually range between 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most patients in Armonk come in twice a week. A typical session generally includes placement of sensors on the scalp and ears while watching a movie, all while getting brainwave reinforcement.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

There are three ways we monitor progress:

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

For many conditions affecting children and adults, Neurofeedback can be a safe, drug-free treatment alternative. Over more than 40 years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave its treatment of ADHD a Level 1 rating, essentially the same effectiveness as medication.*
