I am often asked questions about what is the difference between biofeedback and neurofeedback. I will give a brief explanation here and I will talk at length about these modalities at a free educational talk at Mindspa on Tuesday, December 12, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Here is the basic explanation.
Biofeedback. This is a general term to describe a process of attaching a sensor to some part of the body to record physiological activity, such as heart rate, respiration, muscle tension, or finger temperature, to name a few. The information is then “fed back” to the individual so that bodily information becomes easy to see and manage. Combined with coaching, one can learn valuable self-regulation techniques.
Neurotherapy is a general term that covers many forms of brain-based treatment. In addition to neurofeedback we use various neuromodulation techniques to encourage the brain to make internal adjustments for more optimal functioning. Forms of neuromodulation include light stimulation, sound stimulation, cranio-electrical stimulation, and near infrared stimulation. We have many ways of delivering these modalities in a systematic and customized approach, guided by brain mapping.
Brain Mapping or QEEG is an assessment tool involving a recording of 19 channels of brain electrical activity under resting conditions. I can then analyze the data, compare the results to an age matched normative reference data base, and produce color coded topographic maps. Matching findings to symptoms ensures proper and effective treatment.
