Neurofeedback - qeeg Brain Mapping
Utilize brain mapping and Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) to measure changes in brain function over time.
Brain waves can reveal important information about your overall brain function, including stress levels, thought patterns, and emotions. The qEEG objectively and scientifically evaluates a person’s brainwave patterns that are associated with impulsivity, cognitive inflexibility, anxiety, and other symptoms.
The initial diagnostic procedure consists of placing a snug cap on the head of the client. Embedded within the cap are 19 small sensors that are designed to measure and record electrical activity (or brainwaves) coming from the brain. It is important to note that these sensors do not put any electrical current into the brain – they simply record signals coming from the brain.
The brainwave data recorded with the qEEG is statistically compared to a sophisticated and large normative database. This assessment procedure helps determine in a scientifically objective manner whether a client’s brainwave patterns are different than normal. The qEEG assessment provides initial baseline data to help measure improvements over time.

Neurofeedback is safe and generally causes no side-effects for most patients. The head cap with the sensors cause no pain and do not emit any type of electricity. The process serves two purposes:
