What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a method of understanding a patients brain functioning patterns and establishing slight routine changes when needed. The treatment is non-invasive however and is completely safe for patients of all ages. Neurofeedback helps patients understand how their brain is function and what general patterns can lead to disorders such as anxiety or depression. Biofeedback is slightly different, in that this feedback does not register neural activity but instead focuses on the biological systems of the body such as HR, Temperature and Breathing Rate.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process by which one can understand their body’s regulatory properties in order to take steps towards balancing them. Patients are connected to sensors that can monitor biological processes such as breathing rate, heart rate, temperature, etc. Once someone understands these natural processes, they can begin to learn how to control them through several techniques. Biofeedback can create drastic improvements in one’s sense of wellness and overall health.

What is QEEG?

A qEEG, quantitative electroencephalogram, is a process of digitally analyzing the electrical activity found in the brain. EEG data can tell us about specific psychiatric disorders including anxiety, chronic depression, and bipolar disorder, among others. The qEEG can be a useful tool for understanding the neurological tendencies of the individual to not only diagnose disorders, but also see the development of treatment strategies.

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 I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Danbury, simply call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions – Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will sit down with you and review your results and make treatment recommendations. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake, she will determine what therapy or therapies is/are best. We proudly serve Danbury residents with these alternative therapies.

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.*
