What is Brain Mapping?
Brain mapping, also known as a QEEG, measures the electrical activity of your brain and offers a complete evaluation of your brain’s functional health. The primary purpose of brain mapping is to identify areas of the brain that are either high or low inactivity. The mapping process can also answer questions that have never been uncovered. For example, understanding the cause of issues ranging from ADD to extreme mental illness. Making it a critical tool for identifying areas in the brain that need improvement and why.
At Unique Mindcare, we use state-of-the-art brain mapping to design effective treatment protocols for our clients, and we process all results in-house for the most accurate clinical interpretation.
Why is it important?
Brain maps are important tools in our patient evaluation process, including providing us with the necessary information to design all training protocols and allowing our staff to demonstrate the brain’s response and the effectiveness of treatment to the client. Once we know where to focus our attention, we can then define and develop effective treatment solutions.
What is like to have a Brain Map performed?
The mapping process requires 2 appointments. The first is called the acquisition phase where we get all of the raw data from your brain by placing a cap with multiple sensors on your head. Then, our staff will analyze the results in-house against a life span database of brainwave patterns of normal individuals of the same age and gender.
Based on the results of this analysis, we will generate a detailed report or Brain Map of the results we found. Your second appointment is a 90-minute consultation where the report is presented by our doctor to the client so we can share our recommended treatment options for your symptoms.
“A Weather Map for Your Head”
The images shown are actual measurements of brain activity in patients. The top of the round images represents the front of the brain, with the view being toward the top of the head. A complete Brain Map report will consist of approximately 35 pages of various frequency assessments of the individual’s brain.
