What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a form of therapy that places focus on the study of brainwaves. By studying and understanding brainwaves, you are able to establish a new and desired change. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive form of therapy, providing a safe and effective alternative to potentially harmful methods. It places emphasis on learning to control cranial functions (neuro) and studying related information (feedback). By learning to self-regulate the brain, our Stamford patients can calm their nervous system and diminish symptoms of their condition.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback places greater focus on the connection between the mind and body. This therapy emphasizes studying and analyzing certain bodily processes and learning to control their functions. Natural processes such as heart rate, breathing, and skin temperature can all be positively impacted with Biofeedback. This form of therapy involves measuring the body (bio) and gathering information (feedback) through the use of harmless sensors. As we collect more information, we are able to help your Stamford patients control their condition better. By measuring subtle changes that occur in the body, we can help reduce stress, relax muscles, and build your foundation for a balanced lifestyle.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. This refers to a map of the brain and helps us better understand your specific condition. QEEGs track electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp to depict cortical activity. The collected EEG data is used as a reference database to compare with a standard of information. We perform a computer analysis of this data to compare and contrast different statistics. We look for corresponding symptoms of anxiety, depression, and related conditions. QEEGs are vital in helping our Stamford patients receive proper treatment and accurate schedules.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback works to help achieve better control of individual brainwave activity. Through the use of computers and analyzed data, we monitor specific brain functions and share this live feedback with our Stamford patients. This information begins the process for improving your condition. By learning to manage brainwaves and cranial functions, you can reduce certain activities or encourage desired activities. Rewards are provided to the brain to establish and produce a more desire pattern on brainwaves. A consistent pattern creates new electrical activity, leading to thoroughly repeated production. This allows for better control and self-regulation by the individual.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The Neurofeedback process starts by analyzing a brain map, or QEEG. The collected data is analyzed directly by Dr. Roseann, who will review the brain map and discuss relevant information with you. After QEEG analysis, a customized treatment plan is provided with personally designed regulations. Sessions can range from 20 times to 100 times, and even more if necessary.* Our Stamford patients visit the office on average two times per week. A normal Neurofeedback session involves cranial sensors and monitoring specific brainwaves.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Extensive studies have been performed in the past 40 years that support our methods.
