Gray Matters, a neruofeedback and brain mapping treatment center, now offers Live Z-Score Training, a technique that combines the quantitative measurements of the brain map with neurofeedback.

Anthony Silver, M.S., M.A., M.F.T., BCIA-EEG, is mapping Sean’s brain—

Since opening five years ago, Gray Matters in Fairfield County has been using brain mapping, or QEEG, which measures the activity in the brain, and neurofeedback—a way of showing a person what their brain is doing—to treat those with ADHD, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder among other issues.

Gray Matters now offers Live Z-Score Training, which uses “the quantitative measurements of the brain map with the neurofeedback in a combined modality, so that we don’t need to keep re-testing children,” says Anthony Silver, M.S., M.A., M.F.T., BCIA-EEG, director of Gray Matters. “They’re effectively being tested and treated at the same time.” The idea, he says, is to treat neurofeedback patients more accurately with fewer sessions and better results.

Silver says that since Gray Matters has opened, approximately 500 children have been helped, and the vast majority who start brain mapping and neurofeedback on medication have stopped taking it and are not only doing better off the medication, but are side effect free, as well.

In addition to offering brain mapping, neurofeedback, and Live Z-Score Training, Silver and his colleague Jeffery Schutz, M.A., M.F.T., M.A. ORD, are family therapists. “We don’t just treat the measured brain,” Silver says. “We work with the family, we work with the children, and we do whatever it takes to help the family function better.”
