What is Neurofeedback?

The brain naturally self-regulates in order to calm the nervous system. Without this self-regulation, central nervous problems occur – anxiety, depression, sometimes even physical symptoms are manifested. Biofeedback is not the same as Neurofeedback it focuses on automatic functions. Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive form of treatment, done by studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing the change.*

What is Biofeedback?

Unlike neurofeedback, Biofeedback is the process of learning to control the bodily functions that we do automatically without needing to think about, such as breath, heart rate, or skin temperature. We can collect and record information to learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. To do this we connect patients to electrical sensors that measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). Power over one’s body can lead to an improvement of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG, quantitative electroencephalogram, brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. Patterns in the EEG data can show  signs of depression, anxiety and many others. This EEG data is compared to a reference database of a standard set by other people’s EEG. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and progress.*

My husband and I have two special needs children and are very involved in their education. We only use the best providers and Dr. Roseann is simply the best. From evaluations to neurofeedback to parent coaching, she has been there for my family. She is so knowledgeable and experienced in so many areas and we know that we can always run anything by her.  One of our children has Autism and PANS with significant communication and behavioral issues and Dr. Roseann and her staff have always given us the most loving care and work to support his sensory needs. I can’t recommend Dr. Roseann and Associates more highly.

Dr. Roseann literally saved my daughter’s life. Through testing, her team identified that she had Dyslexia and get her the right supports at school. The care that she and we received from the staff and her therapist over the years has been a lifeline.

The 360 Reboot program turned my daughter’s life around. She had been plagued with anxiety her whole life and never responded to regular talk therapy. With intensive neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychotherapy, and parent coaching, she was able to break the anxiety cycle. She is a happy young adult and we couldn’t be prouder of her and more grateful for the staff at Dr. Roseann and Associates.

As an educator myself, I had seen several of my students make positive and often dramatic changes after going to Dr. Roseann’s center. When my son started having problems at school paying attention, I knew that my husband and I wanted Dr. Roseann’s experienced care. She was spot on in diagnosing the issues with the brain map and walked us through the step by step process of what we needed to do. Our son and family have benefited so much from the center’s help. He never needed medication and with neurofeedback and dietary changes, he became the best person he could be. It has been several years and my son is now thriving in college.

As a therapist myself, I knew that Dr. Roseann is one of the top mental health experts on PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. So when I became sick, she was the first person I called for help. She was able to connect me with the right Lyme medical experts so I could get treatment. I was very lucky that the biofeedback and BRT at the center started helping my headaches and anxiety immediately. I am about 90 percent better and I wouldn’t be feeling so great if it weren't for Dr. Roseann.

After my son with ADHD and anxiety had terrible reactions to medications, we went to Dr. Roseann on the recommendation of our pediatrician. She helped us to understand why his brain and body was reacting to medication and why he was experiencing anxiety, focus, and impulse control issues. After 10 years of many therapists and psychiatrists, we finally saw some major change in on our son with neurofeedback, BRT, and counseling. His therapist helped him and us improve his executive functioning and alertness. It was scary to see him suffer so much on ADHS medications and I am so glad he is happy and our home life isn’t so stressful.

As a family highly impacted by the 12-14 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Dr. Roseann and staff has given us help over the years. From learning how to use EFT/Tapping to manage our anxiety to neurofeedback, everyone in our family has been helped. We learned so much about how trauma impacts the brain and the neuroscience part of stress, anxiety, and trauma. When confronted with such stress, you can’t imagine things will get better, but they did with their help.

As a physician, I knew exactly where to take my son for the best possible mental health care. My son was so anxious from an undiagnosed learning disability and a poor school program. Dr. Roseann evaluated my son and gave us recommendations that were so specific, we could after many years of pushing and prodding the school, finally get him the right program at school. Her center was able to provide all the therapies he needed to improve his cognitive processing speed and reduce anxiety with the highest level of clinical care.

Our adult daughter had treatment resistant depression and was suffering when we came to Dr. Roseann’s center. Even though other therapists had turned us away, her team supported our daughter in a way that we had never experienced. With intensive counseling and neurofeedback, she was able to not be anxious for the first time in her life and her depression stopped.

Our time with Dr. Roseann and her staff during our 360 Reboot intensive therapies program was special. Our little guy gained so many skills in a short time and we received so much education about his needs and what we needed to do along the developmental spectrum to keep him growing in the right direction. We wish we had found her center sooner!

Dr. Roseann treated my ADHD when I was a teenager after my parents tried medications for years on me. I hated every minute of those medications and I felt so irritated all the time. After about 18 sessions, it was like my brain shifted and I woke up from a fog. It has been 6 years since I finished neurofeedback and my attention is awesome!

You have accomplished wonders for my grandson. He is now the child he was always meant to be. Your program was the best investment in his life. I worked with so many young college students who struggled with ADHD and I did not want to see that happen to him. I am so happy that he has been able to benefit from the program. I tell everyone with a child who has attention issues that your program works wonders.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

You might still be wondering what exactly is Neurofeedback? Neurofeedback involves helping a person learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. How does the process work? We Start by collecting information using computers.  We are able to monitor brain functioning and show that live feedback to the client. We train the client to promote or reduce different brainwave frequencies, when the brain learns to produce more appropriate patterns, by changing its own activity, we reward it. This new teaching for the brain creates produces new electrical activity in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” toward a more regulated performance, which is better. These changes result in symptom reduction, as the brain learns to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

To begin you’ll create record the EEG activity of your brain. It will then be statistically analyzed to create a QEEG brain map. Following this Dr. Roseann will review your brain map with you, and put together a treatment plan. You can start your Neurofeedback sessions right away, once your protocol has been created.  Typically the number of sessions is 20-100 or more, however, the number of sessions required is unique based on the specific needs of each individual.* During a typical session you will watch a movie, while receiving brainwave reinforcement from sensors placed on the scalp and ears. Cortland County patients usually come in two times per week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

She’ll make treatment recommendations, specifically for you. We are proud to provide these alternative therapies to our Cortland County residents.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways: 

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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

As a treatment alternative, Neurofeedback is a safe and drug-free option for many conditions impacting children and adults in Cortland. There have been thousands of research studies supporting its effectiveness during the past 40 plus years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same as medication.*
