Brain Mapping Denver
The qEEG Brain Mapping is an inexpensive and non-invasive method of observing what is working in a brain, and where brain waves are out-of-balance, in real time. To record the brain waves, a client wears a stretchy cap similar to a swim cap which contains sensors that pick up the brain wave activity.
No stimulation is applied to the head or the brain. A brain map allows a functional view of the brain. Whereas an fMRI or SPECT scan may cost 5-10 times as much and requires the patient to receive radioactive material to take a snapshot view with contrast, a brain map requires only that a client sit quietly with eyes open and eyes closed.
How does it work?
At Better Brain Balance, the qEEG brain map is part of the Brain Health Intake and Assessment. The Brain Map Intake session takes 60-90 minutes and is generally scheduled in the morning. Please allow 90 minutes for the visit when scheduling a brain map.
During the 90-minute session, clients participate in 30-45 minutes of client interview and questions, then 30-45 minutes collecting brain waves through the brain cap. The Intake interview reviews medical history, traumatic head injury history, sleep, dietary and exercise patterns and more. This information can be recorded by the client ahead of the brain map on our interactive brain map website. Better Brain Balance clients receive a user name and passcode via email upon scheduling a map.
A full color visual report will be provided to you during a 60-minute consultation. The Summary Report includes a view of self-reported symptoms as compared to the brain-wave patterns and a summary dashboard of findings. Areas of the brain found to be most likely to be out-of-balance are identified (as compared to peers of the same age and gender). In addition, possible cognitive, emotional, memory, physiological, nutritional and learning correlates are reported compared to normative data.
During the brain map report and consult session, clients receive specific next step recommendations to improve brain health. Recommendations may include consideration of a training program utilizing neurofeedback, biofeedback, cognitive training, or labwork and/or a sleep study or cognitive performance assessment. The brain map is used to designate specific sites or directions of training, to estimate number of training sessions that may be needed for desired change, and/or to link brain function with other mind and body health parameters. A follow-up brain map may be recommended after completing the recommended series of neurofeedback sessions.
