What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe treatment that doesn’t require medication. Neurofeedback requires studying the information (feedback) of the patient’s brain function (neuro) and positively reinforcing that change but acknowledging the behavior. * The brain self- regulates itself along with the central nervous system but self-regulating. This activity diminishes undesirable symptoms. Without that control, symptoms of anxiety and depression can appear alongside other physical symptoms. Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are different because Neurofeedback focuses on the autonomic function.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is when an individual learns to control automatic functions such as heart rate, skin temperature, and breath. At our Briarcliff Manor office, we take electrical sensors and place them on the patient. These sensors measure data (feedback) about the patient’s body (bio). At our Briarcliff Manor office, we record the data and make changed to control small changes such as muscle relaxation and reducing stress. Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are different because it focuses on autonomic function. This control over one’s body function can lead to an improvement of health and reduce symptoms. *

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram measures electrical patterns on the surface of the patient’s scalp. It’s called a QEEG. The QEEG tracks cortical activity. A quantitative electroencephalogram is a computer analysis of information obtained by the EEG. The data is a computer breakdown of information obtained by the EEG. This EEG data is compared to a database of other people’s EEG data. Specific patterns demonstrated on the QEEG indicate depression, anxiety, and so much more. The QEEG is used for planning one’s treatment and track the progress. * We offer these services at Briarcliff Manor. The QEEG is the first step to your treatment.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Using computers, we closely watch the brain function to show the live feedback to the client. Neurofeedback is when a person learns how to change their brainwave activity to reduce undesirable symptoms. We train the brain to encourage appropriate patterns, or brain wave frequencies. We reward the brain for altering its activity in this way. This positive reinforcement causes new electrical activity to be produced which shapes a more desirable and regulated performance. As the brain self-regulates the changes reduce the undesirable symptoms.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of your treatment requires the patient to get a QEEG Brain Map. The EEG is first recorded and analyzed using statistics. The patient will meet with Dr. Roseann to analyze your brain map and design a customized treatment. Once this plan has been created, you can start Neurofeedback sessions. The amount of sessions you need will vary between each individual- anywhere from 20-100 + sessions. *  Many individuals in Briarcliff Manor attend sessions two times a week. In these sessions, we place sensors on the scalp and ears. You receive brainwave reinforcement while you watch a movie.
