What is Neurofeedback?

At our Milford location, we can provide you with Neurofeedback treatments. This involves studying the information (feedback) that our brainwaves (neuro) provide and reinforcing change.* This form of treatment is non-invasive and safe. Normally, to diminish symptoms, the brain self-regulates to calm the nervous system down. The brain needs to self-regulate because without it other central nervous issues can occur such as depression, anxiety and physical symptoms. The difference between Neurofeedback and Biofeedback is that Neurofeedback doesn’t deal with autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

In contrast to Neurofeedback, our Milford office also has Biofeedback which deals with controlling senses like heart rate, breath, and skin temperature. During these sessions, patients are connected to electrical sensors that measure the feedback of the body while we record data. By studying the data, we can help you start to control bodily functions like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. With Biofeedback, we are able to influence autonomic functions whereas Neurofeedback does not. Having the ability to control one’s body often leads to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. This is a brain map and it measures the electrical patterns on your scalp and reflects cortical activity. The EEG data can be analyzed by a computer to create a quantitative EEG. This EEG data will then be compared to a reference database consisting of a standard set of other EEG’s.  Certain patterns can be signs of depression, anxiety, and other medical conditions. We use QEEG’s to create treatment planning and progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback involves helping a person learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. Through the use of computers, we monitor brain functioning and show that live feedback to the client. We train them to promote or reduce different brain wave frequencies, then we reward the brain for changing its own activity to produce more appropriate patterns. Through this reinforcement, new electrical activity is actually produced in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” toward a more desirable, more regulated performance. These changes result in symptom reduction, as the brain learns to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step involves conducting a QEEG Brain Map; this is a procedure where EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. You then meet with Dr. Roseann to review your brain map and make a treatment plan. After a protocol has been designed, you can immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions.  The number of sessions required vary based on each individual, but range from 20 to 100 or more sessions.*  Most individuals from Milford come in two times per week. A session involves placement of sensors on the scalp and ears while getting brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress 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 a safe, drug-free treatment alternative for many conditions affecting children and adults. There have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy 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 effectiveness as medication.*
