Brain mapping is a process that allows us to see your brain waves in real time, as shown above.
Mapping the brain identifies very clearly the irregular brainwaves and hyperactive areas. More simply put, it can help show the imbalances in the brain.
During the mapping we record your brain waves for ten minutes with your eyes open and ten minutes with your eyes closed.
The mapping session takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
We ask that clients arrive with clean hair free of hair product, no caffeine at least three hours prior to their appointment, and loose fitting clothing. (dirty hair and hair product diminishes the quality of the recording and training)
Once your recording is complete we upload your data into our automated reporting software and send it out to our EEG specialist for a deeper dive.
We will schedule your mapping review at the end of your mapping for a separate day.
Most providers use an automated software to develop their reports. We use both an automated software known as qEEG and an EEG specialist.
Due to its high temporal resolution, QEEG is fast becoming the premier neuroimaging tool to assess and aid in the treatment of many psychological and medical brain-based disorders. However, poorly artifacted records will lead to poor results and poor outcomes during brain training. Our EEG specialist removes a higher rate of these artifacts, deemed as "bad data," than the automated software used by our competitors. Artifacts include eye blinks and any type of body movement. Taking a deeper dive is what sets us apart from our competitors. The deep dive performed by our EEG specialist identifies more areas of hyperactivity on the first try. When we can identify more areas of inefficiency we are able to work with more areas of the brain from the time you begin your brain training with us, cutting down on the amount of time needed for optimal results.
The results from your mapping are provided in a report, as shown above.
During your mapping review we will show you the hyperactive areas of your brain and discuss symptoms related to the hyperactivity or hypoactivity.
Hyperactivity meaning too much activity, hypoactivity meaning too little.
Once your review is complete we will discuss training options, number of suggested sessions needed, and payment options.
Brain training is your next step.
You will wear an EEG cap, similar to the one shown above, with 19 sensors, while you watch a movie.
Your five senses take in the information from the movie and the environment, a process known as biofeedback.
Your senses communicate this information with the brain, which then transmits the brain's response to the cap. This real time reading of the brain's response is known as Neurofeedback.
When the cap tells the computer the brain is deviating from the normal response the computer works to train the brain to go back to normal. This is done through various musical instruments and notes and a dimmer, which is taken in through your visual and audio senses. Think of the dimmer and each instrument heard as a different teacher in the classroom teaching various areas of the brain all at once.
Each training session lasts 20-45 minutes depending on your results, the package you purchase, and your goals.
