Brain map (below)
A brain map, or quantitative EEG (QEEG), helps identify specific regions of the brain that are not working properly.
The QEEG can be used as an assessment tool to identify specific areas of dysfunction or dysregulation.
In addition to this visual mapping of the brain, a thorough evaluation of the person’s past experiences, thoughts, feelings and behaviors can help plan what areas of the brain to train.
What is the process?
A person who is going to participate in neurofeedback training sessions will start by answering several questions about their symptoms, treatment history, and lifestyle.
It may be useful to do a qEEG - a Quantitative Electroencephalogram- brain scan which produces a series of visual “brain maps”.
An EEG is done and the recording gets sent to a data base - qEEG Pro - where it is analyzed.
Twenty, non-invasive electrodes/ or sensors attached to a cap/ loose electrodes are placed on the client’s scalp to record brain wave activity. The electrodes do not hurt and they do not deliver an electrical current into the brain.
Hair should be washed the night before and no conditioner is to be applied please. A gel is used to clean the scalp and then a conductive paste put onto each electrode to get the best reading of brain waves as possible.
After the qEEG you will receive a report and an individualized treatment plan and neurofeedback training will begin.
¥70 000 qEEG in advance before neurofeedback training begins.
