What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a secure, non-invasive method of treatment that reinforces change by studying the information (feedback) provided by brainwaves (neuro).* One of the purposes of the brain is to self-regulate. One of its task through this is to calm the nervous system in order to lessen symptoms. Without this self-regulation, problems arise within the central nervous system such as anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Unlike Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions. Learning to control bodily functions such as heart rate, skin temperature and breath is the process of Biofeedback. Electrical sensors are attached to patients to measure information (feedback) about the body (bio). Through recording and testing, the goal is for you to learn and control the subtle contractions and relaxations of muscles or learn stress control. Taking control of your body can lead to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns on the exterior of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of an EGG. The EEG data is compared against a reference database containing a number of EEGs belonging to other people. Particular patterns may be a manifestation of depression, anxiety, or many more. A QEEG charts a treatment plan and also facilitates progress on the road to healing.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

The process of Neurofeedback is helping a person modify their own brainwave activity. With computers, we monitor brain functions and waves that give feedback to the client. Next, we train them to increase or reduce different brainwave frequencies, rewarding the brain for changing its activity for the betterment of health. By utilizing a strategy based around reinforcement and rewards, new electrical activity is actually produced in the brain and the brainwave activity is “shaped” toward a desired performance. This leads to reduced symptoms and more self-regulation in the brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

First, we conduct a QEEG Brain Map. In other words, we record and analyze statistics through an EEG. Dr. Roseann will sit down and review your brain map, pointing out what could be causes for your condition and will craft a treatment plan. Next, you start your Neurofeedback sessions. This involves sensors placed on the scalp and ears while receiving brainwave reinforcement while watching a movie. Number of sessions vary between patients, averaging 20-100 sessions or more.* Most individuals come in twice a week.

We deeply care about our Bethel residents and proudly provide our non-medication therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

  • 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?

Neurofeedback is a safe, medication alternative for many conditions affecting both children and adults. Thousands of research studies have been conducted over the past 40 years that support its efficacy. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, tying first place with medication.*
