qEEG or quantitative EEG brain maps: see the reason for your struggles, then change it

The EEG is a way to measure activity in your brain.  Your brain is electric. Every thought you think, every emotion you feel, and every sensation you have is due to the electrical firing of neurons. The EEG or electroencephalograph shows this activity instantaneously, within a few thousandths of a second after it occurs in the brain. Although EEG’s are used medically by neurologists to evaluate neurological disorders like epilepsy, they are increasingly being used in behavioral and mental health fields.

EEG shows us the activity and the coordination of activity of the cortex – the outermost layer of the brain. This is the part of the brain responsible for higher functions like thinking, deciding, and acting.  It can show areas of the brain where there is too little or too much activity. It can also show when areas of the brain are not coordinating their activity properly. By studying the EEG in 19 areas of your brain, we are often able to see the reason for your struggles. And once we can see it, we can target it for change with neurofeedback.
