Brain Maps

What is Brain Mapping?


Brain mapping (QEEG) is an opportunity to observe your brain wave activity and help you validate your own sense of the struggles in your life.

Your brain operates in frequencies (cycles per second) depending on whether you are sleeping or working hard on a project.  Brain waves facilitate your mental efficiency, and ability to organize and get things done.  If you have been in an accident, a brain map will show a concussion, how severe it is, and how it affects your brain.  If you have had a single traumatic event or numerous traumas over time, that will show up in a map as well.  If you have been in any accidents that caused an injury to the head, a brain map can show the location, severity and the consequences of the injury.  If you have a chronic illness and are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger or fear, these areas and intensities will also be indicated.  Finally, if you have learning disabilities or attentional problems, your brain map will show us what, where and how intense these issues are.  

Brain map data is recorded and collected in our office and then sent to a special lab where advanced programs analyze your data against “normative data bases.”  A data base consists of a carefully selected group of people who have no history of headaches, injuries, etc., that is compared to your brain waves according to age and sex.  These databases come from around the world, Switzerland and the Brain Research Lab at NYU Medical School, for example. Databases show what, where and how much your brain activity deviates from the norm as a means to help you.

With this information, we can determine what your brain needs to operate more efficiently and how to provide optimal treatment for you.  Treatments are provided twice a week for ten weeks. We also perform brain maps for other practitioners to help them in their treatment as well as many law firms to help their clients with brain injuries.
