Quantitative EEG – is a real time measure of electrical activity of the brain.
Sensors are placed on the scalp at standard placement sites. These sensors detect the electrical activity on the surface of the brain below. This electrical activity appears as brain waves that can be recorded and analyzed.
The QEEG printouts show different “pictures” of the brain based on the analyzed data. One shows variation from normative data bases of specific frequencies in the brain. Another shows connectivity of different areas of the brain.
Optimal brain synchronization is the basis for all mental activity. The brain is the sum total of all multiple networks and QEEG gives an opportunity to see how efficiently these multiple networks are operating at any point in the life cycle. Baseline QEEGs followed by periodic QEEGs will provide a measure of the function/dysfunction of the brain at any recorded time.
