What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of non-invasive, safe form of treatment that works by studying brainwaves (neuro) and the information they provide (feedback) and reinforcing that change.* In order to diminish symptoms, the brain calms the nervous system by self-regulation. Central nervous problems like anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms can arise without this self-regulation. As opposed to Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process of consciously controlling one’s bodily functions, like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. We receive information (feedback) about the body (bio) when we connect patients to electrical sensors. Using this information, a person can record and then learn to control subtle changes like reducing stress or relaxing muscles. Neurofeedback is different because Biofeedback looks at the control over one’s autonomic functions. Control over one’s body can improve overall health.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram, or QEEG, is a brain map that measures electrical patterns that reflect cortical activity on the surface of the scalp. A computer analysis of EEG data is called a quantitative EEG. A reference database of a standard set by other’s EEG is compared to your EEG data. Observed patterns can be indicative of anxiety, depression, and other disorders. The QEEG is utilized for both treatment planning and progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback assists a person in learning how to modify their own brainwave activity. We monitor brain function and show live feedback to our clients through the use of computers. We utilize them to reduce or promote different brainwave frequencies and reward the brain when it changes its own activity to promote more appropriate patterns. New electrical activity is actually formed in the brain through this reinforcement and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into more regulated and desirable performance. As the brain learns to self-regulate, the changes in activity result in symptom reduction.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step is to create a QEEG Brain Map, a procedure that records and statistically analyzes EEG activity. At your meeting with Dr. Roseann, you will review the brain map and make a treatment plan together. You can immediately start your Neurofeedback sessions once a protocol is designed. The necessary number of sessions varies based on the individual, but usually range between 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most patients in North Salem come in twice a week. A typical session generally includes placement of sensors on the scalp and ears while watching a movie, all while getting brainwave reinforcement.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Following the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will meet with you, review your results, and make recommendations on treatment. She can determine what therapy or therapies will suit you best based on your QEEG results and clinical intake. We proudly offer all of these alternative therapies to North Salem residents.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

There are three ways we monitor progress:

  • 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?

For many conditions affecting children and adults, Neurofeedback can be a safe, drug-free treatment alternative. Over more than 40 years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave its treatment of ADHD a Level 1 rating, essentially the same effectiveness as medication.*
