What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a therapy conducted by studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro). After we examine the feedback, we will be able to reinforce change.* In a normal situation, the brain will self-regulate which helps calm the nervous system and rids the body of any symptoms. Without the ability to self-regulate, there can be a few central nervous problems that can come about – anxiety, depression or even physical symptoms. On the other hand, Biofeedback only focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

At our New Britain office, we also provide Biofeedback. During therapy, patients will learn to control bodily functions like heart rate, breath and skin temperature. Patients will be connected to electrical sensors that not only provide information (feedback) about the body (bio). From this information, we are able to assist you in learning how to control small changes like relaxing your muscles or reducing stress. By gaining power over your body, you can start to live an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a type of brain map that measures the electrical patterns on the scalp of a patient. From the electrical patterns that are measured, cortical activity is reflected. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of EEG data. This EEG data will then be compared with a reference database that includes a standard set of other EEG data. By comparing the data, we can find different signs that correlate with specific patterns such as depression, anxiety, and others. QEEG’s can be used for different things such as treatment progress and planning.*

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 New Britain 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.*
