Start with an (q)EEG assessment, also referred to as brain map, to define training locations (10-20). Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG, The qEEG is an extension of the analysis of the visual EEG interpretation which may assist and even augment our understanding of the EEG and brain function. This multi-channel EEG data is processed with various algorithms, such as the “Fourier” classically, or in more modern applications “Wavelet” analysis. The digital data is statistically analyzed, sometimes comparing values with normative database reference values (e.g. Neuroguide). The processed EEG is commonly converted into color maps of brain functioning called brain maps.
How is it measured?
EEG provides useful information but adding other physiological signals show state changes via moment to moment autonomic responses. To get a full physiological view and insights in mind-body interaction, true power lies in combining neurofeedback with other characteristics like lat skin conductance responses, restricted HRV patterns, chronic elevated sEMG patterns and/or lack of muscle activation.
This multimodal approach of EEG allows for a full blown physiological view and insights for therapist and client.
