Overview

Through a quantitative electroencephalograph (q-EEG), areas of the brain that are out of alignment are mapped. During a neurofeedback session, sensors will be put on specific brain areas to measure their current state, and contrasted with what the normal functioning should be. Through the medium of songs or music, your brain will be pushed to adapt to a more comfortable state. So during a neurofeedback session, all you have to do is show up and relax, while your brain retrains itself.

Neurofeedback can also help in other conditions such as anxiety, PTSD, seizures, autism, addiction recovery, sleep disorders, ADHD, concussions and traumatic brain injury, etc. Neurofeedback is generally considered a safe form of treatment. The usual side effects include feelings of anxiety, insomnia, nightmares, headaches, or brain fog – which last temporarily. With depression, neurofeedback has been found to effectively improve depressive symptoms over using just medications. In ADHD, long term benefit in symptom reduction has been found in a study on children with ADHD following 6 months after the sessions. As there are permanent damage caused by long term use of antidepressants, for individuals requiring long term treatment for depression, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals may consider neurofeedback as a form of treatment.

Is Neurofeedback an effective and safe treatment for Depression?

Yes, neurofeedback is considered a simple, safe, and non-invasive treatment that does not have the adverse effects of medications. However, it is more expensive than taking medications. 

How does it work?

Sensors are attached to specific brain areas that are not functioning properly, which are attached to an EEG machine. When your brain waves are more relaxed, you get a positive reward but when they act in the opposite manner, the positive reward is taken away. In this way, your brain learns to alter its state which can help with treating mood issues. This helps manage thoughts and emotions, thus reducing depression. 

How many numbers of sessions are required? 

The number of sessions depends on the individuals’ severity of depression, and how responsive they are to the neurofeedback training.
