What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that is non-invasive and reinforces change in your brain functions. This is done by studying the information (or feedback) provided by your brainwaves (neuro).* By utilizing this method, you will be able to self-regulate your brain functions and one of the biggest tasks is to calm your nervous system to lessen specific symptoms. If you cannot self-regulate, problems will continue to happen within your central nervous system. This can range from anxiety, depression and even certain physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback helps you gain control over involuntary functions like heart rate, skin temperature and blood pressure. The process begins by attaching electrical sensors are attached to your skin to measure information (feedback) about your body (bio). By recording and testing, the goal is to help you learn how to control your subtle contractions and relaxations of muscles to reduce stress. By taking control of your body, you will have an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram (also known as brain mapping) is an analysis of the electrical activity of the brain to study quantitative patterns that may relate to cognitive deficits. Quantitative EEG’s are computer analysis of an EEG, and EEG’s data is usually compared against a database consisting of numerous EEGs from other individuals. Specific patterns may be signs of depression, anxiety and other diagnostics. A QEEG chart will be a treatment plan and can help you on your road to health.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

The process of Neurofeedback involves helping an individual modify their own brainwave activity. With the help of computers, we can monitor brain functions and waves of our clients. Then, we can train them to increase or reduce brainwave frequencies and rewarding the brain for changing its activity. Through reinforcements and rewards, new electrical activity can be produced in the brain and the brainwave activity can be “shaped” toward a desired performance. This will lead to reduced symptoms and a more self-regulated brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The process of Neurofeedback involves conducting a QEEG brain map. This means that we will record and analyze statistics through an EEG. Dr. Roseann will then study your results and figure out what is causing your condition. She will craft a plan of action and we will immediately begin your neurofeedback sessions. These sessions involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement from watching a movie. Your sessions will range from 20-100.* Most patients will come in twice a week.
