What is a Brain Map?

A “brain map”, as the name implies, is a specialized service that allows us to take a map of your brain. With this map, we are then able to develop a customized treatment plan centered on our unique Guided TMS treatment. Guided TMS treatment is very different from standard TMS because the TMS treatment is concentrated on the areas of the brain that need help the most. At NeuroHealthMaine, we use EEG and QEEG technology to create our brain maps.

How EEG Technology Improves TMS Treatment

Electroencephalogography (EEG) is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which reflect cortical activity and are commonly referred to as “brainwaves.”

How QEEG Technology Improves TMS Treatment

Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG. In lay terms this sometimes is also called, “Brain Mapping.” The qEEG may assist and even augment our understanding of the EEG and brain function.

qEEG is a procedure that processes the recorded EEG activity from a multi-electrode recording (nothing goes into your brain — we are simply recording what is going on energetically within your brain.) The digital data is statistically analyzed, and the data is presented in a report. The report discusses brain functioning – specifically, what is functioning well and what is not. More advanced reports digitize the information and present colored what are called, “Brain Maps.”

The EEG and the derived qEEG information can be interpreted and used by experts as a clinical tool to evaluate brain function, and to track the changes in brain function due to various interventions such as TMS.

At NeuroHealthMaine we can record an EEG and send it to experts to analyze your brain function. This is a powerful tool for treatment.

We are now offering a FREE brain mapping session for patients who purchase our 36 TMS treatment package.
