What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment that will reinforce change by taking a look at information (feedback) given by your brainwaves (neuro).* With this type of treatment, we will help you learn to self-regulate and calm your nervous system to lessen the symptoms you are currently feeling. Without learning about self-regulation, problems such as anxiety or depression would continue to occur in your central nervous system.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the different from Neurofeedback as it focuses on autonomic functions. These functions can be heart rate, skin temperature and breath. During the process of biofeedback, we will attach electrical sensors to your body and measure information (feedback) about your body (bio). This type of testing will help us learn the best ways to control your stress levels. If you learn to control your body, you are more likely to improve the state of your health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram (also known as brain mapping) that measures the electrical patterns that reflect your cortical activity. This type of EEG is done by computer analysis and the data is compared against an entire database of numerous EEGs. By conducting a brain map, we can find specific patterns such as depression or anxiety. A QEEG chart helps your treatment plan and also helps with the progress of your health.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is conducted by helping individuals learn to change their own brainwave activity. With computers, we can easily monitor your brain waves and functions and see where problems arise. Next, we can help you train your brain to increase or reduce certain brainwave frequencies. While we are training your brain, we will also reward and reinforce change that will better your health. By having a strategy that includes rewards and reinforcements, we can produce new electrical activity in the brain and shape brainwave activity to a desired performance. This will lead to fewer symptoms and a more self-regulated brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The beginning of the process involves producing a QEEG brain map. This is when we will record and analyze statistics through a EEG. Dr. Roseann will then take a look at your results, study them and figure out what the cause of your conditions are. She will then create a treatment plan for you and immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions. These sessions include having sensors placed on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement through watching a movie. The number of sessions each patient has will average between 20-100 sessions or more.* Most individuals will actually come into the office twice a week.
