qEEG Brain Mapping and Analysis
A quantitative encephalogram (QEEG) is a “map” of a client’s brain waves.
A computer analysis of the EEG is used to compare the amount of different frequencies (alpha, beta, theta) and the relationships of these rhythms between areas in the brain. Then your data is compared to databases of “normal” individuals of the same age to determine the nature and severity of your specific brain patterns. This information is then used to determine protocols to be used by the neurofeedback technicians in training to normalize the EEG abnormalities and improve brain function.
A QEEG is completed for each client before treatment begins to determine the appropriate treatment for that client. The colorful map easily demonstrates how each client’s brain differs from the standard baseline. These protocols can change depending on the information given to us by the Qeeg.
During your treatment sessions, additional QEEG maps are done to determine your progress. Dr. Davis analyzes the QEEG to determine where brain wave patterns deviate from the norm and to determine where re-training of the brain is necessary; thus, the name QEEG-guided Neurotherapy. Pre- and post-treatment brain map changes are clearly visible to the untrained eye and can be accurately explained in your meetings with Dr. Davis.
CNS Vital Signs
CNSVital Signs- (Computerized Neurocognitive Software) is a neurocognitive and behavioral assessment tool. This test is part of our Initial Assessment and will give us a more complete picture of your brain and it’s capabilities.
This test can measure the following:
- composite memory
- verbal and visual memory
- psychomotor speed and reaction time
- complex attention
- cognitive flexibility
- processing speed
- executive function
- social acuity and reasoning
- sustained attention and working memory
- simple attention
- motor speed
The CNSVital Signs will also be taken at the end of the treatment and allows us to illustrate measurable results.
LENS (or Low Energy Neurofeedback System) Map
Using the same electromagnetic impulses as the LENS neurotherapy treatments, the LENS system can also be used to create a “map”, so that we can successfully “see” your brain and it’s patterns as well as monitor your progress. The map will show connectivity problem sites that are under-connected and over-connected.
It is just one more tool used to create a full picture of your brain.
