|QEEG - Brain Mapping- Quantitative
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
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.
Aspergers and Autistic Spectrum Disorders
Dysfunction such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia
Brain Injuries and Strokes
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.
