The collection of QEEG and neuropsychological information is an important step in our personalized care process.
Before attending any treatment sessions for Neurofeedback, your therapist must determine specific biomarkers of brain activity through this QEEG assessment. This information helps to ensure the treatment protocols selected for each patient will be the most effective possible and follows scientifically proven evidence-based treatment guidelines.
A QEEG session is usually booked as a 2.5-3 hour appointment, after the initial consultation with your therapist has been completed and the decision to move forward with treatment has been made.
What happens during a QEEG assessment session?
The patient is asked to complete a questionnaire about how their activity before coming for the QEEG session. The therapist then measures the patient’s head to determine the location of the electrodes.
Some areas of the patient’s scalp and face will be lightly washed in preparation for placing the electrodes, as good contact with the skin is needed to receive a high-quality signal from the brain.
This type of information collection is common and important for many disorders of the brain but relatively new for mental disorders like ADHD. Our centers also include this important step before developing a treatment plan specific for a patient.
