With something as new and exciting as neurofeedback and neuroanalysis, there are bound to be lots of questions. Here are some of the most commonly asked.

  • How much does neurofeedback cost overall?
    Overall cost is hard to estimate and will depend upon a wide variety of factors. These include the nature and severity of the issue(s), age of the patient, extent of insurance coverage, treatment goals, and patient commitment. Full out-of-pocket cost at TNC is between $3500-$4500 - about 30-50% less than what our competitors charge. Those with full insurance coverage will pay less (often much less) than $1000 out-of-pocket. Payments can be structured over the course of treatment. At TNC, we are committed to providing the highest quality neurofeedback services at reasonable, economical prices. Our office is structured to make our services accessible to as many people as possible. We encourage you to “shop around,” because we know that our prices are the lowest in the State, our services are of the highest quality, and our outcomes are second to none.
  • How many sessions does neurofeedback training require?
    At TNC, we use an advanced neuroanalysis that enables us to train your brain with unrivaled specificity and accuracy. The majority of our patients achieve treatment Goals and maximize gains at around 45 sessions; some complete training as early as 35, and some will receive 60 or more. Major variables that affect duration of training include medications, severity of presentation, age, and other neuroanatomical or neurochemical variables. Overall time for treatment is between 3 and 6 months, depending upon pace and number of sessions received.
  • How long does it take to see results?
    Some people report relief from symptoms almost immediately, if not within 4-6 sessions, but most of our patients’ experience about a 20% symptom reduction by the 15-Session Review and about 80-90% of our clients report a reduction of 50% or more by discharge. Keep in mind that neurofeedback results will be more analogous to weight loss or fitness training: Change takes place gradually, difficult to observe in the short-term but undeniable over time. Some symptoms “budge” only after training for a while. It varies from person to person and according to the issues and severity.
  • Can I get off my medications if I receive neurofeedback training?
    Yes, in many cases neurofeedback can be an effective alternative to psychiatric medication. In cases where this is a patient goal, our outcomes are excellent. However, there are also many cases where medication management will remain as the best and most effective treatment option. We work with you to navigate your best options. Please be advised that all medication changes are done in consultation with your prescriber.
  • Is neurofeedback covered by insurance?
    Neurofeedback is recognized by some insurance companies, most notably Medicaid (Husky), and it has a treatment code for billing purposes (90876). Your coverage will depend upon the company you use and the type of plan you have. We will be glad to speak with you about how to find out what services your insurance plan may cover. We are committed to working with you and your insurance company to ensure your Out-Of-Pocket expenses are kept to a minimum.

  • Are there side-effects to Neurofeedback?
    Neurofeedback is safe and non-invasive, with consistently excellent outcomes. In the hundreds of research studies done with NFB, there are virtually no indications of negative outcomes. There may be potential abreactions, but these are typically mild and will have little, if any, resemblance to the side-effects associated with prescription medications. Typical abreactions include mild fatigue, “sore head” from wearing a cap, or minor skin irritation. Occasionally, clients may report feeling more irritable, emotional, or reactive; these responses are either short-term and resolve themselve or, with a simple protocol shift, are trained away.
  • Is neurofeedback permanent?
    The effects of neurofeedback treatment are typically enduring—that is, the results do not “extinguish” over time. Once your brain learn how to regulate effectively, it doesn’t forget..Some people may return for “refresher” sessions, but this is typically not necessary.
  • Is there evidence to support the efficacy of neurofeedback treatment? Is it experimental?
    Neurofeedback has been around for a long time—over 50 years. A vast and growing body of research is demonstrating significant and consistent efficacy for the treatment of many mental health problems. Almost all research shows clinically significant improvements with virtually no negative outcomes recorded. It is showing itself to be one of the most versatile, wide-ranging, effective and non-invasive treatments available. Two organizations are devoted to making research information available, providing access to thousands of scholarly articles: The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB, The International Society for Neuroregulation and Research (ISNR, Want a more user-friendly site?

  • Why are we only hearing about NFB now?
    Research and treatment has been going on using NFB since the 1960’s. Several advances in the past 20 years or so have made it possible for neurofeedback to be made available in a format that is both affordable and appealing. These include the development of neuromeric databases, fast desktop computers with lots of memory, precision amplifiers designed to read one-millionth of a volt through scalp and skull, caps that make preparation simple and reliable, neuro-electrical logarithms that allow us to interpret EEG activity and project it as usable data, and a whole lot more. At TNC, we believe that NFB will become a top-tier norm for mental health treatment very soon!
  • Does NFB help to enhance performance? What is Peak Performance training?
    Is it possible to enhance work, school, sports or musical performance? Can NFB improve IQ or SAT scores? The answer is Yes! Training to optimize and enhance brain function is called Peak Performance. Neurofeedback peak performance training gives you that over-the-top edge for the skills and activities in which you want to excel. NFB is used by Olympic competitors, professional athletes, NASA, Navy Seals, and world-class musicians to improve Peak Performance. Here are several ways that NFB can be used to enhance your everyday performance: Middle Aged Individuals - Increase your energy, sharpen your focus and improve your memory. Feel like your brain is 25 again. Athletes - Enhance your athletic potential, improve mental balance, concentration, and brain/body harmony, to increase reaction speed and perform better while under pressure. Musicians - Improve your musical memory, sharpen your focus, and enhance your intuitive engagement with music for overall optimum performance skills. Workers/Students - Multi-task better, improve attention, replenish creativity, and fortify memory while at the workplace or in the classroom. IQ can increase by 10 points; SAT scores by 100-200 points. Brain Brightening - NFB is shown to offset the onset of age-related cognitive decline.
  • Do you offer internships, or professional training and mentoring?
    Yes! TNC has provided supervision and training to about half of the certified clinicians in Connecticut, making us one of the top training centers in the Northeast. We love to host other healthcare professionals into our facility and often provide brief presentations to inform other healthcare centers about NFB. We welcome interns who are interested in learning more about NFB. We have had High School, college and graduate level students intern with us.
