What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment that helps create change in your symptoms by studying your data (feedback) given from your brainwaves (neuro).* Normally, your brain will self-regulate on its own as well as calm your nervous system to lesson symptoms. If we do not have self-regulation, problems will form in the central nervous system due to problems like anxiety, depression and possibly, physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Unlike Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions. Learning to control bodily functions such as heart rate, skin temperature, and breath is the process of Biofeedback. Electrical sensors are attached to patients to measure information (feedback) about the body (bio). Through recording and testing, the goal is for you to learn and control the subtle contractions and relaxations of muscles or learn stress control. Taking control of your body can lead to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a brain map that measures your electrical patterns by hooking up sensors to the exterior of your scalp. This helps reflect cortical activity to which a quantitative EEG is normally a computer analysis of an EEG. The EEG data is then compared against a reference database of numerous EEG results. If we find specific patterns on your results, it could be the culprit of depression, anxiety, and other conditions. A QEEG chart will help create a treatment plan and get you back on the road to health.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is carried out by helping people modify their own brainwave activity. With the help of computers, we can monitor and record your brain functions and waves. Next, we will train them to increase or decrease different brainwave frequencies, while we reward your brain for changing its activity. By using a strategy that revolves around reinforcement and rewards, we can help you produce new electrical activity that is “shaped” toward a desired performance. This will help reduce the symptoms of your illness and help you live a more self-regulated lifestyle.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We will first conduct a QEEG brain map, which is when we record and analyze statistics through an EEG. Dr. Roseann will personally review your brain map and craft a treatment plan for you to follow. Afterwards, you will immediately start your Neurofeedback sessions that involves placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcements by watching a movie. You will be able to determine how many sessions you take and how many times you come in a week. Normally our patients come in twice a week and have from 20-100 sessions on average.*
