THE NEUROFEEDBACK EVALUATION
Neurofeedback begins with a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) evaluation. The QEEG is an assessment tool designed to objectively and scientifically evaluate a person’s brainwave patterns. The procedure consists of placing a snug cap on the head. Embedded within the cap are 12 small sensors that are designed to measure and record brainwaves coming from the brain. It is important to note that these sensors do NOT put any electrical current into the brain– they simply record signals coming from the brain.
The brainwave data recorded with the QEEG is statistically compared to a normative database and an individual Brain Map report is generated. This assessment procedure allows the doctor to determine, in a scientifically objective manner, whether a client’s brainwave patterns are different from normal.
The QEEG assessment provides the doctor with the neurofeedback training protocols that will be used during the training sessions. These protocols are designed to retrain the brainwave patterns toward normal. As the brainwave patterns normalize, the brain is able to operate more optimally and efficiently.
