What is a qEEG Brain Map Evaluation?
qEEG Brain Mapping refers to Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) Neurometric Evaluation. This powerful, yet non-invasive evaluation provides important information about how your brain is performing. It reads how every area of your brain is working and produces information on your brain performance pattern.
qEEG is a high-tech, state-of-the-art, way of measuring brain functioning. We can determine how your brain performance is affecting your mental and physical behaviors. Your brain map shows if your brain is causing ADHD, anxiety, sensory processing issues, concussion, memory loss, and more. If all areas of your brain are working well, you do not have any symptoms. If any area is under or over performing, symptoms arise.
How is the qEEG Brain Map Performed?
Many people are familiar with how an EKG, Electrocardiogram, works for measuring if their heart is working properly. A qEEG works in a similar manner. However, qEEG measures your brain performance. Sensors are positioned across all areas of your brain and readings of your brain signals are taken in real-time. A qEEG Brain Map provides a snapshot of your brain functioning pattern. This is indicative of how your brain is operating most of the time. This information is useful in determining the brain pattern that is associated with your outward behaviors or symptoms.
What Types of qEEG Brain Maps Exist?
The qEEG Brain Map for ADHD uses too much slow processing speed. This makes it difficult for you to focus, stay organized, and be productive. The anxiety qEEG Brain Map is one of excessive fast speed High Beta. This makes you feel anxious stressed, and in overdrive. There are many variations of a brain map. The brain performance pattern dictates how you feel and perform. Science proves the map type creates the symptoms a person experiences.
What Information Does a qEEG Brain Map Provide?
The qEEG Brain Map provides information about how all brain areas are using speed and communicating with each other. Measurements of activity are acquired, analyzed, and then visualized in a colorful map that shows brain patterns. For more information on what a “normal brain map shows visit our blog HERE. Also, you can watch hundreds of videos on qEEG Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback Brain Training on Dr. Trish Leigh’s YouTube Channel.
Brains are able to switch speed based upon the cycle of the day or as necessary. There are 5 main speeds your brain is supposed to shift between.
DELTA Extra Slow Speed: f you are asleep, your brain is using extra slow processing speed, called Delta. The use of Delta results in a deep sleep. This speed is involved in early memory loss and cognitive decline.
THETA Slow Speed: WHen your brain uses Theta it is drifting toward sleep with the feeling of grogginess. This is the speed that causes ADHD when used too much during the day.
ALPHA Medium Speed: Alpha creates the relaxed but alert feeling you might have when hanging out with friends. If this speed is dominating, you may struggle with depression.
BETA Fast Speed: You are in an alert and engaged mental activity when in Beta. This can be thought of as “The Zone”. Beta is used properly when you are highly engaged and processing information with ease and a calm demeanor. If you use this speed too much, you may struggle with hyperfocus.
HIGH BETA Extra Fast Speed: This very fast speed creates states of panicked, anxious, hypervigilant, over-thinking and stressed feelings. This state is helpful when in fight or flight, or an emergency to help you escape danger quickly. If used constantly it can lead to an anxiety disorder.
qEEG Brain Mapping reads your brain signals to evaluate how much of each speed is used. The way that all of the areas are using speed makes up your brain pattern.
