Many people wonder about the difference between these three important concepts: Electro-encephalogram (EEG), Neuro-Feedback, and Biofeedback. It is all part of one same family. For example, an electroencephalogram (EEG) takes place when sensors are placed on clients’ heads to capture electrical activity. These electrical activity provides information on the functioning of the brain (e.g., anxiety, ADHD, depression, emotional pain, etc.). Similarly, “neuro” is related to our nerves, nervous system, neuron… In the Neurofeedback community, it technically refers to our brain. Lastly, Bio “bio” refers to our bodies. In order to do “Biofeedback” sensors are placed on the clients’ body (e.g., to capture pulse) and see how is their psycho-physiological status (e.g., anxious, worried, etc). It works similarly as when going to our regular doctor and checking our heart blood pressure (e.g., it is high or low).

Mind-Behavior Assessments, Biofeedback-Neurofeedback Training
Dr. Stetz captures information via surveys and sensors (e.g., placed in the head or fingers). This information is correlated with symptoms as anxiety, depression, anger, ADHD, PTSD, and used for proper treatment. She helps her clients learn how to self-regulate their psycho-physiology (e.g., brain waves, pulse) for a better quality of life.
