Quantitative EEG (QEEG) Information
Quantitative Electroencephalograph (QEEG) involves the recording and analysis of electrical activity of the brain (i.e. "brain waves") through the use of 19 sensors, a computer, and special software. We use QEEG to guide neurotherapy for most client treatment plans. Digital EEG acquisition gives full color, two dimensional brain maps (full color image on the left) that allow us to view the brain's electrical activity from a variety of different perspectives, including comparison against a normative database. Although these terms make this process sound complicated for the client, all you are required to do at your QEEG appointment is put on a hat that looks like a shower cap with sensors in it and sit back and relax.
- QEEG is a non-invasive procedure with little risk of dangerous side effects.
- Most QEEG sessions are approximately 2 hours.
- You sit in a reclining chair in a relaxed position for the length of the session.
- You sit quietly for most of the session with your eyes closed or open and perform a reading task.
"QEEG and Neurofeedback Workshop" is set for November 2009. Details are here.
