What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive treatment that involves studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing changes based on that information.* The brain can self-regulate to relax the nervous system and relieve negative symptoms. Without this self-regulation, anxiety, depression, physical symptoms, and other central nervous issues can crop up. Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback as it focuses on autonomic functions instead of bodily functions.

What is Biofeedback?

One can learn to control their breath, heart rate, skin temperature, or other bodily functions through biofeedback. Biofeedback differs from neurofeedback as it controls one’s autonomic functions rather than brain waves. Patients are connected to electrical sensors that measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). The patient can learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress by studying recorded results. Power over one’s body can lead to an improvement of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map measures the electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. Dr. Roseann then compares the EEG data to a reference database of a standard set comprised of other EEGs. Through the analysis of patterns, symptoms of depression, anxiety and illnesses can become apparent. QEEGs can be used both for treatment planning and progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

People can learn how to modify their own brainwave activity using neurofeedback. Through the use of computers, we can monitor brain functions. This technology allows us to show feedback to the client in real time. Our patients can learn to boost or reduce different brainwave frequencies, rewarding the brain for changing its own activity in order to produce more appropriate patterns. This reinforcement process results in the production of new electrical activity in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into a more desirable, more regulated performance. The brain learns to self-regulate, resulting in a reduction of symptoms.* How Do I know which therapy I need?

 

Dr. Roseann will review your QEEG results with you in person. She will make treatment recommendations based on your clinical intake and QEEG results. Following this, Dr. Roseann will suggest the most appropriate therapies. We proudly serve Chappaqua residents with these alternative therapies.

native therapies.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of the neurofeedback involves a procedure during which your EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. This is called a QEEG Brain Map. Following this, Dr. Roseann will meet with you to review your brain map and design a treatment plan. You can begin your Neurofeedback sessions as soon as a protocol has been established. During your sessions, the practitioner will place sensors on the scalp and ears. You will receive brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie. The length of treatment (number of sessions required) varies based on each individual. The range generally falls between 20 to 100 or more sessions.*  Most Chappaqua-area patients visit our office for two appointments per week.
