Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback


Neurotherapy, sometimes called Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback, gives the individual a tool with which to change various types of electrical activity in the brain. Research has shown that brain waves in individuals with ADD/ADHD contain excess slow waves (theta) and not enough fast waves (beta) or other types of wave imbalances. These imbalances in electrical activities actually reflect imbalances in neurochemical activity in the brain. Neurotherapy provides methods of stimulation and training which corrects electrical activity imbalances and often has an effect to influence neurochemical activity resulting in improved functioning.

Our personal views of the Service:
Our staff uses qEEG guided neurofeedback therapy as an integral part of many or our treatment plans to ensure the development of specific areas of brain waves based on the comparison of the client’s baseline waves to norm referenced data. As the client is undergoing brain training, the neurofeedback technicians are able to monitor progress while supporting mental changes.

Our Staff and Combined Experience:
David Cantor, Ph.D., Mental Health Clinic Director
Adrian Van Deusen, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Technician
Gianni de Benedictis, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Technician
Ellie Sender, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Technician
Jessie Nebel, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Technician
Brittany Abrams, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Technician

Specific Techniques Employed:
This is accomplished by utilizing a computer-based EEG monitoring system that processes signals from the brain and gives the individual immediate feedback by means of video and audio signals. Results will typically yield improvement in learning and listening skills, behavior and school grades, and fosters an ability to follow through on tasks and assignments. The neurofeedback can often lead to significant improvement in test scores.
