QEEG - Brain Mapping-  Quantitative ElectroEncephalography

A Quantitative EEG (QEEG) like a clinical EEG measures the electrical activity at 19 sites on the scalp.

During a QEEG recording, the electrical activity is measured over time and during various states mental stimulation.By assessing over time, during rest and challenging tasks, the QEEG can reveal how various sites are functioning as well as how they are communicating with each other.Through a rigorous analysis of the data, variations reveal problematic areas and communication difficulties among and between various areas in the brain.

Numerous “Brain Maps” like the example below are produced which give a visual understanding of how the brain is processing information.Frequently these “maps” will reveal a pattern of dysfunction which is characteristic of the patient’s major symptoms.

QEEG is remarkably reproducible and reliable.It can be used to guide NeuroTherapy so that the optimal results can be reached as quickly as possible.

The QEEG has been recognized as an invaluable method of identifying patterns of brainwaves which are characteristic of a large number of Neurocognitive problems.

The following are examples of the kinds of common conditions for which identifiable patterns and subtypes can often be detected using  EEG and QEEG.

gAD/HD, Aspergers and Autistic Spectrum Disorders
g Learning Dysfunction such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia 
g Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
gTourettes Syndrome
g Seizure disorders
g Headaches, Migraines
g Depression
gAnxiety
gOther Affective disorders
g Traumatic Brain Injuries and Strokes
g Memory problems
gAlzheimers as well as Dimentia and other Memory Problems


QEEG Subtype Grouping of AD/HD

QEEG is a painless and non-invasive proceedure which can offer rich insights into neurological and neuropsychological problems at a fraction of the cost of other brain mapping techniques such as fMRI and SPECT.
