What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and safe type of treatment that studies the information of brainwaves and reinforces any changes.* The brain relaxes the nervous system to reduce identified symptoms. Central nervous problems such as anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms can arise without this self-regulation. Biofeedback is different than Neurofeedback because it is based on autonomic functions.  

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the act of controlling body functions that normally we aren’t even aware of such as breathing, skin temperature, and heart rate. Our practitioners hook patients up to electrical sensors that ascertain information about the body through measurements.  These measurements inform the patient how to control slight adjustments in behavior such as de-stressing and relaxing tense muscles. Biofeedback differs from neurofeedback in that it is about manually manipulation ones autonomic function. *

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a brain mapping technology that measures the surface of the scalp for electrical patterns. These patterns explain activity in the cortex. A quantitative electroencephalogram is a computer breakdown of the data. This EEG information is cross-referenced with a database of standards set by many other EEGS. Certain patterns can indicate anxiety, depression among many other disorders. The QEEG can be used as a guide for treatment planning as well as proof of progress.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback helps a person change their personal brainwave activity. With the use of computers, we observe brain function and show the results to the patient. We then teach the client to adjust their brain wave frequencies. By rewarding this behavior, the brain learns to make different, more appropriate patterns. Through this positive reinforcement, we create new electrical activity to shape a better brain performance. This change in brain activity reduces symptoms as your brain begins to self-regulate. *

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

To begin, we record and analyze your brain activity by conducting a QEEG brain map. Dr. Roseann will then analyze your brain map and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Once a plan has been designed, you can being the Neurofeedback sessions. In these sessions, our experienced practitioners will place sensors on the scalp and ears. Then the patient will watch a movie while receiving brain way reinforcement. The amount of sessions needed will vary for each person, but they range from 20 to 100+ sessions. * The majority of Guilford patients come twice a week.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a non-medication, drug free, and safe choice for many conditions that affect children and adults alike. Thousands of studies conducted throughout the last 40 years support the efficiency of this therapy. Neurofeedback received a level 1 in efficiency in the treatment of ADHD from the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2013- this is the same level rating as medication. *
