What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is an alternative therapy to medicine. It’s the studying of information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) while trying to reinforce change.* Typically, the brain will self-regulate to calm the nervous system helping to prevent certain symptoms. Without this ability, we are more prone to depression, anxiety or even physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback involves helping patients learn to control functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. Throughout the process, patients are connected to electrical sensors that are able the measure information (feedback) about the body (bio). From this research, patients will learn to control small changes like reducing stress or relaxing muscles. By having control over your body, you’ll be able to live a healthier lifestyle.*

What is QEEG?

Quantitative electroencephalogram otherwise known as QEEG is a type of brain map that deals with measuring the electrical patterns of the scalp to look at cortical activity. They are a computer analysis of an EEG, and this EEG will be compared to a reference database of another individual’s standard set.  Some of the signs correlate with the specific patterns that are measured such as depression, anxiety, and much more. QEEG’s can be used for is treatment progress and planning.*

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 Shelton 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 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.*
