What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is the direct training of your brain functions and teaching yourself (or more specifically your brain) to function more efficiently. With this non-invasive treatment, we can study the information (feedback) that is provided by your brainwaves (neuro).* One of the biggest purposes of Neurofeedback is to help you self-regulate your central nervous system. Without self-regulation, problems such as anxiety, depression and certain physical symptoms would continue to occur in the central nervous system.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback focuses more on training your autonomic functions. We can help you learn to control bodily functions like heart rate, skin temperature and breath with the use of Biofeedback. In the process begins by attaching electrical sensors to your body and measuring the information (feedback) about your body (bio). We will record and test the results, and from there help you learn to control subtle contractions and relaxations of your muscles. The overall goal is to help you learn to control your stress, which can lead to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram (otherwise known as brain mapping) where we will measure the electrical patterns coming from the exterior of the scalp. The QEEG is a computer analysis of an EEG and the data from the EEG will be compared to a database with numerous EEGs from other patients. Certain patterns will show the results of depression, anxiety and so on. From there we can create a treatment plan that will help you heal and learn to control your bodily functions.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is the process of helping an individual regulate their own brainwave activity. By using computers, we can easily monitor your brain functions and provide you with feedback to help you self-regulate. We will also train you to increase or reduce different brainwave frequencies while we reward your brain for changing its activity. When we create a plan involving reinforcements and rewards, we will be able to produce new electrical activity and shape your brainwave activity to a desired performance. This will help you reduce symptoms and let you have more control over your functions.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Neurofeedback sessions involve conducting a QEEG brain map. This means that we will record and analyze statistics through a EEG. Dr. Roseann will then take your results and review your brain map, figuring out what the cause of your condition is and what kind of treatment plan to recommend for you. Your Neurofeedback sessions will then begin immediately. These consist of placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement by watching a movie. The number of sessions you receive will range from 20-100 and most patients come in twice a week.*

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After we complete a QEEG on you, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and create a custom treatment plan based on what you need to improve your health.

We care about all of our Fishkill residents and we love providing our alternative therapies for them.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Your progress is monitored 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 supported by thousands of research studies that have been conducted over the past 40 years. In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness in the treatment of ADHD, tying first place with medication.*
