Our Bozeman neurofeedback practitioners will use the qEEG to compare your brain waves to the brain waves of a normative database of people the same age. It measures a brain deviation from normal and graphically displays the results in units of standard deviations. It also provides detailed brain activities in Brodmann Areas, different areas of your brain associated with memory recall, vision, hearing, and other functions. The qEEG is a diagnostic tool we use to help determine the most effective use of our experimental neurofeedback therapies and measure progress.
Your brain has a unique pattern of brain activity—like a fingerprint. A qEEG brain map, or quantitative electroencephalogram, is used to measure brain activity at 21 sites across your head. After recording your brain waves, we compare them to a normative database, which helps identify and target problematic brain patterns.
By illustrating activity in critical areas of the brain (areas associated with everything from executive function, memory recall, vision, learning, and balance), your qEEG brain map guides neurofeedback protocols. Subsequent qEEG maps can then be utilized to monitor changes and optimize the effectiveness of your neurofeedback therapy.
