What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment used to study the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforce change in them.* We can help your brain self-regulate to calm your nervous system and dissolve your symptoms. Without self-regulation, problems in your central nervous system can occur- anxiety, depression or physical symptoms. Neurofeedback does not focus on autonomic functions, but biofeedback does.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a process to help you learn to control your bodily functions like breath, heart-rate or skin temperature. Patients are connected to an electrical sensor that will measure and provide information (feedback) about your body (bio). Once we have this information, you can learn to control subtle changes like relaxing your muscles or reducing stress. Unlike Neurofeedback, Biofeedback helps you control your autonomic functions. When you have power over your body, you will be able to improve your health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a brain map shows the measurement of electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp that show cortical activity. Usually, this will be done by a computer analysis of the EEG data. This data is then compared to a reference database, set by the EEG of other individuals. Specific patterns in your data can be a sign of depression, anxiety, and others. We utilize QEEG for treatment planning and progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback works by helping someone modify their brainwave activity. By using computers we can monitor brain functions and show live feedback to you. We also train you to promote or reduce different brainwave frequencies. We then reward the brain for making changes to help make more appropriate patterns. While we are making these reinforcements, new electrical activity will be produced in the brain, and your brainwave activity is then led to a more desirable and regulated performance. All of these changes can lead to symptom reduction, while the brain is learning to self-regulate*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Neurofeedback involves using a QEEG Brain Map. This is a procedure where EEG activity is recorded and analyzed. After you complete the test, Dr. Roseann will meet with you and review your brain map and make a treatment plan for you. Once this has been designed, you can start your treatment immediately if you would like. The number of sessions can be dependent on you, but know that they range from around 20 to100 or more.* Most individuals in the Redding area will come in two times per week. Your session will include placing sensors on your scalp and ears while getting brainwave reinforcements from 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 a regular customized symptom checklist

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Yes, Neurofeedback is supported by research. This type of therapy is safe and a drug-free alternative to help children and adults with certain conditions. There have been thousands of research studies produced over the past 40 years to prove how well the therapy works. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness in the treatment of ADHD, a very similar reaction to medication.*
