Brain Mapping & Neurofeedback
WHY GET A QEEG EVALUATION?
Although a brain might be healthy, free from significant damage or illness, it might not be functioning optimally for many reasons. It might have a little too much or too little of a group of frequencies like theta (4-7Hz) or beta (15-18Hz) in one area of the brain- a "power" problem. Another possibility is that it has an entirely different type of problem, one in which one part of the brain is communicating either too much or too little with another part of the brain - a "coherence" problem. A QEEG evaluation can locate these problems, which might be causing symptoms like anxiety, depression, sleep problems, etc. - or cognitive problems like attending, concentrating, using language (reading, writing, speaking) less than optimally. Neurofeedback can often correct these "power", "coherence" or other issues and improve the functioning of the brain.
