What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, alternative form of therapy offered to study the functions of neurons in the brain for each individual patient. By studying these brain patterns, our patients can learn how to self regulate these processes and start to diminish symptoms. Without this self-regulation, patients will have little ability to control these disorders, or alleviate the symptoms experienced from various disorders. These therapies differ from biofeedback approaches that tend to focus on autonomic nervous functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a process of controlling autonomic functions of the body such as breathing, heart rate or skin temperature. By connecting patients to electrical sensors, these processes can be measured and better understood. This allows each patient to take steps toward controlling these functions. Subtle changes like relaxation can reduce stress and improve health for our patients, once they understand how these biological systems operate. This therapy differs from a neurofeedback approach, as each patient learns how to control autonomic functions to improve health.

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a method of quantitatively viewing an EEG recording of the electrical activity of the brain. The cortical activity of the brain can be seen during various neurological functions. This data can then be compared to diagnose various disorders including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and more. The QEEG testing can be done to diagnose these disorders and plan for future treatment methods.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback techniques involve helping patients learn how to modify brain activity to adjust to various harmful tendencies. By showing each patient the various activity of the brain, we can promote beneficial neurological activity while reducing harmful tendencies. Several disorders involve impaired neuron activity in the brain, meaning preventing this activity can reduce the symptoms that appear. By promoting ‘positive’ brain function, in desired neocortical areas, one can ‘train’ their brain to function in a more positive fashion to ultimately diminish health complications.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step involve testing using EEG equipment. This test is then recorded and statically analyzed to produce a QEEG brain map. You then meet with Dr. Roseann to discuss the implications of your brain map, including possible diagnoses and plans for recovery. Once a treatment plan has been establish, you can begin you neruofeedback sessions immediately. Each patient is different, thus the number of sessions each patient will need may vary. Most individuals from Monroe require sessions roughly twice per week.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After an initial QEEG test, Dr. Roseann will sit down to review which treatment options are most appropriate and recommended by our team. She determines which therapy method will produce the most effective results and discusses options for treatment schedules. We are proud to promote safe, alternative therapies to our patients throughout the Monroe area.

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. We care about the health of our Monroe patients, and always use proven methods to produce results.
