How does neurofeedback work?
Patients suffering from a variety of disorders like insomnia, autism, headaches, learning disabilities, anxiety, ADHD, etc., can benefit from neurofeedback sessions. Neurofeedback involves four steps:
- Clinical Interview – We meet with our clients and conduct a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, where we identify challenges and design a treatment plan based on their unique needs. In this stage, we use rating scales to record patient symptoms and to establish treatment goals.
- Brain Mapping – We conduct a Quantitative EEG test to measure your brain wave activity and patterns. This helps us create a brain map, which plays a pivotal role in determining the type of brain activity that we want to reinforce. This acts as the base for designing a neurofeedback training protocol.
- Train the Brain – We recommend patients to attend the neurofeedback training sessions at least thrice a week to get the best treatment results.
- Our Branford anxiety therapists repeat QEEG after every 15 neurofeedback sessions to measure any changes in the brain. Based on the results, the training protocol will be changed or altered in future training sessions.
Applications of neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is a non-drug alternative to treating mental disorders and helps enhance cognitive function. It is a reward-based training system, where a certified neurofeedback provider will use fast- and slow-moving brainwave protocol to train your brain.
It is a type of biofeedback therapy that helps change the electrical activity in your brain. It is highly effective in treating conditions like ADHD, ADD, anxiety, stress, depression, and sleep issues.
