Brain Map

In the same way an EKG looks at the electrical activity of your heart, an EEG is a way to analyze the electrical activity in your brain. It is commonly used to diagnose sleep disorders or seizures. Less commonly, it is used to assess and help treat problems with anxiety, attention, depression, and even substance abuse using EEG biofeedback, neurofeedback.

In our practice, we obtain a brain map to help guide the use of neurofeedback with our patients. It is not as detailed as the more formal quantitative EEG (qEEG), but is also less costly and time-consuming. It is a feasible alternative for many, especially fidgety young children.
