Neurofeedback

Mary Jo Sabo, Ph.D. Mala Datta, Ph.D.

What is Neurofeedback/ Biofeedback
•  Neurofeedback is a computerized software program that gives information to a person telling them what their brain is doing. It teaches the person to change their brain wave pattern thus helping them to improve symptoms they may be experiencing. We call this self-regulation. The person is rewarded every time his/her brain reaches a balanced brain wave pattern. Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback. •  In Biofeedback we provide information back to the individual so they know what their muscles are doing. When we do Neurofeedback the brain is provided information back to the person.

How does Neurofeedback work?
•  Sensors placed on your scalp help us evaluate your brain wave patterns. •  This information helps to determine which brain patterns may be contributing to your discomfort or diagnosis. •  You will then Train these brainwave patterns – making positive changes to the underlying cause of problems you re experiencing, eventually reducing the frequency and/or severity of symptoms.

What conditions has Neurofeedback been clinically proven to help?
•  Seizures and sub-clinical seizure activity •  Severely disruptive behavior disorders such as Conduct Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. •  Autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental delay. •  Acquired brain injury

• Anxiety in children, teens and adults • Depression in children, teens and adult • Sleep Problems • Pain Problems • Headaches • Memory Problems • Peak Performance for Athletes

Is Home Training available?
• Home training is a possibility after the initial 20-40 sessions with a clinician. Under Dr. Sabo s supervision a parent can use home training with their child.

Is Neurofeedback right for me and my family?
• Our youngest trainee is 3 years old and our oldest individual in training is 90 years old. Everyone is welcome and can benefit. • In schools we train Peak Performance for children of all ages.

What can I expect while Training?
• Sessions usually last for 30 minutes. • In the beginning we recommend 2-3 sessions per week. • As you begin to see improvement, most people train once a week.

How many sessions will I need?
• Each person will respond to treatment differently, but most people feel better after only a few sessions. Depending on your needs, you could expect to come for at least 20 to 40 sessions, but many people stay with training to address different needs for many more.
