What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive alternative to medication. With this treatment, we’ll be able to study the information (feedback) of your brainwaves (neuro) and help you reinforce change to your activity. Normally, the brain will self-regulate to help calm your nervous system and get rid of any symptoms you have. Without any self-regulation, problems can occur in your central nervous system. These can range from anxiety, depression to even physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback in that way that it focuses on autonomic functions. This means that you’ll be able to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate, and even skin temperature. To do so, we’ll connect you to electrical sensors that will give information (feedback) about your body (bio). By doing so, we can record and analyze your activities, then help you learn to control these subtle changes. Power over your body can help you lead an improved and healthy life.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a brain map that measures the electrical patterns on the surface of your scalp which reflect cortical activity. Quantitative EEGs are computer analyses of the EEG data. We will then compare the EEG data to an entire reference database with EEGs. When certain patterns arise, they can be signs of depression, anxiety and many other conditions. We’ll use your QEEG for your treatment plan and to help you with the progress on your state of health.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

The practice of Neurofeedback involves helping someone learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. By using computers, we can monitor your brain functions that provide us with the feedback that will help us through your therapy. With this information, we can train you to produce different brain wave frequencies, which helps create new electrical activity that will help “shape” you toward a more desirable, regulated performance. To help the brain get used to these changes, we’ll reward your brain every time it produces a more appropriate pattern. This will also help reduce any of your symptoms, and help your brain self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

When you come to our Ridgefield office, we’ll first conduct a QEEG Brain Map to record EEG activity that we can then analyze. After your brain map, you’ll sit down with Dr. Roseann and she’ll review it with you and recommend treatment(s) based on your condition. Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, you can choose to start your Neurofeedback sessions immediately if you wish to. The number of sessions you attend will be based on your conditions, but they mainly range from 20-100 or more sessions.* Those living in New York, typically come in two times per week, and the sessions usually involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while we give you reinforcements such as watching a movie.
