What is Neurofeedback?

The brain has an incredible ability to self-regulate. Without self-regulating, the brain would be unable to relax the nervous system and consequently not able to reduce or relax symptoms. This disruption can cause anxiety, depression, and other physical problems. Neurofeedback is a safe, alternative form of treatment in which the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) is studied and positive changes are reinforced.* Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback in that biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions, while Neurofeedback revolves around brainwaves.

What is Biofeedback?

While neurofeedback controls brainwaves, biofeedback is different.  It still deals with natural processes in the body, but it actually controls autonomic functions. A person who learns to use biofeedback can develop the ability to control their breath, heart rate, skin temperature, and other functions related to the body. In a biofeedback treatment session, Dr. Roseann attaches electrical sensors to the scalp. These sensors measure and relay information (feedback) about the body (bio). We can record the results, which allows the patient to learn to control small changes, which might include relaxing muscles or reducing stress. If you have power over your body, you can begin to improve your health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns that reflect cortical activity. This information is gathered through the use of sensors placed on the very surface of the scalp. These sensors take measurements. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This EEG data is compared to a reference database containing a standard set of data by other people’s EEGs. This allows Dr. Roseann to compare the information and identify specific patterns. Conditions such as depression, anxiety, and others are sometimes indicated by differences in these QEEG patterns. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and tracking progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

By understanding what Neurofeedback is and how it works, individuals can actually learn the skills and methods needed to control, adjust, and regulate their own brainwave activity. In our office, we can monitor brain functioning using computers, providing real-time feedback to the patient. In treatment sessions, you will learn to control different brainwave frequencies and reward behavior when the brain changes its activity to the desired effect. As a result, the brain will produce more appropriate patterns. Through this reinforcement, new electrical activity is actually produced in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into a more regular performance. The brain learns to self-regulate, resulting in reduced symptoms.* How Do I know which therapy I need?

After a QEEG, based on your QEEG results and clinical intake information, Dr. Roseann will review your results with you and recommend a treatment plan. The most appropriate course of treatment and types of therapies will be suggested. We proudly serve individuals and families in the Beacon Falls area with these safe, alternative therapies.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Progress is tracked in three different ways :

Through QEEGs conducted at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.

Through data collection at each Neurofeedback session.

Through regular, customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

We conduct a non-invasive procedure called a QEEG Brain Map. During the QEEG Brain Map process, EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. Dr. Roseann will then review your brain map and, based on the data, will design the most appropriate treatment plan for you. As soon as a protocol has been established, your Neurofeedback treatment sessions can begin! During the treatment sessions, your scalp and ears will be fitted with sensors. You will then receive brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie. Each patient will require a different number of sessions, which can range anywhere from 20 to 100 or more.*  Most of our Beacon Falls patients come for approximately two appointments per week.

This alternative treatment has been validated and has been shown to be effective by thousands of research studies over the past 40+ years. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating—the same effectiveness as pharmaceutical treatment*—in the treatment of ADHD in 2013.*
