Customized qEEG Analysis
Have you ever wanted to understand how YOUR brain works? A Brain Map (or qEEG) measures your brainwaves and allows you to understand which areas need support and which are functioning well.
What To Expect
The Brain Map appointment is about 1 hour in the office. Some recommendations are provided immediately, and a full analysis is available 2-4 weeks later.
The full analysis includes:
- Overall health report for your brain
- Customized neurofeedback protocols
- Psychotherapy recommendations
- NeuroMeditation suggestions
- Other lifestyle recommendations
A Brain Map is like a multipoint inspection of your nervous system that helps you learn what is working well and what needs support. It also provides context for your symptoms. For example, the test measures activity in 22 areas of your brain. Most people show weaknesses in 3-5. That means about 80% of someone’s brain is doing well, and the rest just needs a tune up.
There is no signal sent to your brain during this test. We are only monitoring your brainwaves. The entire test takes about 1 hour, and your only duty is to sit relaxed in the chair while I do all the work. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to set up the cap, check the signal quality, and then we record 10 minutes of data. After the test is done, I will clean and sterilize the cap for the next client, and we will spend some time discussing the results. It can take up to 1-2 weeks for me to fully analyze the data, but most information is available immediately after the test is done.
Brain Map Example
To better understand what kind of information is presented in a Brain Map (or qEEG), please review the example below. Each identified section is described below the image.
You are looking at an actual recording of someone’s brainwaves (EEG). The Y-axis shows the electrode placement on the head. Generally speaking, the top of the graph is the front of the head, the middle is the top, and the bottom is the back. The X-axis is time.
The most important description of brainwaves is to say they are slow or fast. The activity in section J for example is slower than H, because it takes longer for the line to cycle making the appearance of an arc.
