EEG ( or electroencephalogram) is a recording of brainwave activity. QEEG (Quantitative EEG), popularly known as brain mapping, refers to a comprehensive analysis of brainwave frequency bandwidths that make up the raw EEG. QEEG is recorded the same way as EEG, but the data acquired in the recording are used to create topographic color coded maps that show electrical activity of the cerebral cortex.
While other brain imaging techniques (e.g., CT, MRI, PET, SPECT) measure such properties as cerebral blood flow, metabolism or structural integrity, QEEG measures electrical activity of the brain. It provides complex analysis of such brainwave characteristics as symmetry, phase, coherence, amplitude, power and dominant frequency. In fact, subtle disruptions of electrical connectivity and flow in the brain sometimes may be the only or early signs of a problem.
Brain mapping is an essential diagnostic procedure used in evaluating conditions such as; ADD/ADHD, Learning Disorders, Anxiety, Insomnia, Fibromyalgia and Depression. It tells us if the symptoms are neurologically based and if any of the areas of the brain is malfunctioning or misfiring. If neurologically caused, then there is a high probability of treatment success using Neuro Integration Therapy and our comprehensive treatment protocols.
We are pleased to be one of the few providers in the state of Georgia to offer this groundbreaking diagnostic procedure!
