A Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a specialized neuropsychological assessment which provides maps of the electrical activity in the brain.
What is Brain Function Analysis?
Brain Function Analysis, otherwise known as a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a specialized neuropsychological assessment that maps the electrical activity in the brain and provides a picture of how the brain functions. The QEEG is a sophisticated, research-informed tool that allows us to develop effective, personalized treatments for patients.
How Does It Work?
Our QEEG Technician places non-invasive sensors at specific sites on the patient’s scalp (anywhere from 19-64 placements) to measure brain activity. During this hour-long assessment, the patient sits comfortably while data is collected with the eyes open and with the eyes closed. The process is generally very comfortable for both children and adults, and we also provide tools to help our clients prepare for and understand the procedure.

What About Results?
By gathering information in real-time and comparing it to a database of demographically matched EEG data, the QEEG provides specific information about brain function that allows us to determine how the brain can better be regulated. Data from the QEEG also provides a better understanding of social, psychological, and neuropsychological issues. The information gained from this assessment is used to determine treatment protocols and therapies.
