What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe and non-invasive treatment used to treat multiple conditions. It focuses on reinforcing change by analyzing the information (feedback) sent by the brainwaves (neuro).* This looks to assist the brain to self-regulate the body in order to calm the nervous system and decrease symptoms. When the brain stops regulating, issues within the central system can begin to be alleviated from anxiety, depression to chronic pain.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback assists in the autonomic functions of the body. It works by controlling bodily functions like breath, skin temperature and heart rate.Electrical sensors are connected to patients who gather data (feedback) and the body (bio) as treatment. The patient can then learn how to control subtle relaxations and contractions of the muscles. Biofeedback helps better control stress, improving your overall health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) Brain Map measures electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp which will reflect cortical activity. The EEG data is compared in a database the contains larges quantities of other EEG results. This can help detect certain patterns related to depression, anxiety, and other conditions. Once known, it can be targeted properly.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback focuses on modifying brainwave activity through a series of techniques that promote self-regulation. With assistance from the integrated computer systems, we can observe brainwaves and each function that gives feedback to each patient. This can help us discipline the patient in order to re-shape brain activity by rewarding positive changes in brainwave frequencies. These new electrical activities in the brain help to reduce symptoms and increase self-regulation.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step in Neurofeedback include conducting a QEEG Brain Map to record statistics, norms and your brainwaves through quantitative EEG. Dr. Roseann will meet with you to discuss the brain map, including going over possible causes or states of you condition. After your consultation, Dr. Roseann can create a treatment plan that best assists in your healing.

The Next step includes starting your Neurofeedback sessions. Electrical sensors are placed on the surface of the scalp and ears. While watching a movie, you will simultaneously be receiving brainwave reinforcement.  Number of sessions vary from patient to patients, averaging 20-100 sessions or more.* Most individuals in the Mount Kisco area come in twice a week but your treatment plan will differ to best serve you.
