An EEG brain map provides an objective picture of your brain activity. It identifies specific regions of your brain that may be producing too much, or too little electricity compared to a normative database of your same age and gender. A brain map takes less than an hour to record and its neither invasive nor painful.
It provides your therapists with an objective tool to measure your brain function. Without a brain map, a therapist relies solely on your symptoms and history. It also helps direct the most effective intervention aimed at improving how your brain functions. An EEG brain map can identify if your brain function is being affected by environmental factors, genetic factors, or due to post-concussion activity. EEG biofeedback sessions (Neurofeedback) may be recommended to retrain your brain activity to an optimal state. These interventions can improve how your brain functions while your therapist is working with you on trauma treatment, behavioral and/or cognitive strategies.
There are hundreds of research studies supporting EEG brain mapping for a wide variety of clinical indications, including memory problems, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, trauma, traumatic brain injury (TBII), ADD/ADHD, cognitive decline and processing issues.
