qEEG Brainmapping

What is the Service?
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) Brain Mapping is a procedure that records electrical activity that is produced from the brain by sensors attached to a cap, placed on the head. This procedure is supported by evidence-based research. This tool is utilized to measure the speed and processing efficiency of neuronal brain functioning and can be used to evaluate a person’s brainwaves. This evaluation serves as a basis for identifying fluctuations in brain functioning that are associated with different types of psychoneurological disorders such as; Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, Learning Disabilities, Depression, Dementia, Mild Head Injury, Addictions, and Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder.

Our personal views of the Service:
We ensure that our clients are extremely comfortable throughout their entire experience with the qEEG brainmapping processes. We have on staff, several highly qualified and experienced technicians and doctors who are prepared to analyze and interpret brain maps. With the use of advanced normative and clinical databases, we can run clinical analysis of qEEGs to validate treatment efficacy and progress.

Our Staff and Combined Experience:
David Cantor, Ph.D., Mental Health Clinic Director
Camila Ortiz, Neurofeedback Technician
Jessie Nebel, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Therapist
Brittany Abrams, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Therapist
Ellie Sender, Neurofeedback Technician, Certified IM Therapist

Specific Techniques Employed:
The qEEG brain map procedure is a non-invasive, pain-free, and fairly straightforward process. To perform a qEEG procedure, electrodes (or sensors) are positioned on the scalp at 19 standardized points of entry on the qEEG Lycra cap. Special conductive gel is used to help gain a better contact between the electrode and the scalp. The electrodes are then connected to a differential amplifier and computer with a special cable. Once the procedure starts, the electrical signals from the brain are processed into a computer program which helps neurofeedback technicians visually see brain functioning based on brain waves. Depending on the client, the actual time of the appointment can vary, however, it usually lasts approximately 1 hour.
