Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) / Brainmap
Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG)
Quantitative EEG, or “brain mapping” is indispensable as a means of ascertaining exactly what's going on. Without a brainmap, neurofeedback may be ineffective or inaccurate. It's an essential a way of assessing the operation and functionality of the patient's brain with the comparison of normative and clinical databases, and the processing of 20 minutes of brainwaves (EEG) recording. EEG is the measurement, using digital technology, of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which primarily reflect brainwave activity on the cortex (the “ bark” of the brain). Neurotherapists use this knowledge to adjust cerebral function towards ideals with operant conditioning, counseling, and neuromodulation. Brain mapping is analyzing the electrical activity or "brainwaves."
This process involves two office visits (one for EEG acquisition and a follow up review).
