What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a process in which a patient can actually look into their own neural behaviors. A patient can catch a glimpse into the actual functions of the brain through various neuronal communication. Through Neurofeedback, our staff can diagnose and treat several psychiatric disorders that may go unnoticed otherwise.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a way of understanding one’s basic biological responses such as temperature, heart rate, and breathing rate. Once a patient understands these processes, they can begin to take steps towards understanding how to control them. Controlling these processes can lead to an individual feeling much more healthy without making significant lifestyle changes. Relaxing one’s body and understanding these biological functions can lead to vastly improved health and wellness.

What is QEEG?

An EEG is a means of understanding the electrical activity of the brain. EEG map the cortical activity under the scalp to help us better understand how patients brains are acting. A  qEEG, quantitative electroencephalogram, is a means of analyzing the activity digitally to give the best results. Once these results are analyzed, our team can take steps toward diagnosis several forms of psychiatric disorders (should they be present). The qEEG also makes treating these conditions easier for patients as we can understand what steps need to be taken to fix an underlying condition.

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 Danbury 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.*
