QEEG Brain Mapping

A brain map is a picture of your brain's electrical activity. The technical name for a brain map is a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG). 

Your brain has metrics of health just like your body does. When you go to the doctor, they might measure your blood pressure, temperature, and heart rate to determine if each measurement is in a safe or normal range. The same thing happens when you come to Mind States, except we measure different brainwave metrics such as absolute power, coherence, and phase. These measurements help to determine how well your brain is functioning, similar to how your blood pressure tells your doctor how well your body is functioning.

The brain map is done in the office and usually takes about an hour. It's a painless, non-invasive part of the assessment process.

The EEG data collected during a brain map is referenced against several databases and provides information about how and to what extent your brain differs from what would be expected of someone your age. These differences, along with other assessment methods, help to determine how your brain is contributing to your symptoms.

For example, if someone reports symptoms of ADHD, we often look at the frontal lobes, a region of  the brain associated with executive function (planning, attention, organization, etc.). If this part of the brain shows significant dysregulation, then it will be targeted in the treatment plan.
