How Does qEEG Brain Mapping Work?
qEEG brain mapping gives us a comprehensive picture of a person’s brainwave activity: identifying patterns that may be contributing to symptoms, and pointing to areas for improvement – not only for symptom relief, but also for optimal functioning. The brain mapping process in our clinic consists of three steps:
We begin with an electroencephalogram (EEG), which measures brainwave activity through sensors placed on the head.
We then analyze the EEG results using data from normative scans to identify problematic patterns and generate a visual representation of the findings: called a brain map or quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG).
Our clinical staff meets with patients to review their brain map, interpreting the results in the context of symptoms and goals, and planning for neurofeedback or neuromodulation treatment where relevant.
