What is a QEEG?
A QEEG (Qualitative Electroencephalograph) or Brain Map, is an assessment that provides detailed information regarding surface level brainwave activity at nineteen different locations, including the amount, speed and amount of shared information. The client's recorded brainwave activity is analyzed statistically and compared to that of a large population base for optimal functioning, factoring for the client's age and gender. It is then converted into a colored pictorial representation of brain functioning.
The information from the QEEG and the client's reported symptoms are referenced to specific brainwave patterns often associated with different types of symptoms. This gives us an idea as to what patterns may be affecting the client's emotions, behavior, attitude or cognitive functioning.
Together, this information is used to guide neurofeedback training.
