Understanding Qeeg

At Polaris BrainGym, we use the power of cutting-edge technology to optimize brain function and empower individuals of all ages. One such technology that we specialize in is Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG), also known as brainmapping.

We then use this brain map to plan your treatment, training or before prescribing psychotropic medication or supplements. Safe to say, Polaris is the only place on the island that can do that!

What is qEEG?
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) is a sophisticated brain imaging technique that provides valuable insights into the electrical activity of the brain. Unlike traditional EEG, which simply records brainwave patterns, qEEG goes a step further by quantifying and analysing these patterns with remarkable precision. We then compare your readings, to the standard population’s scores (Z scores), to assess how well your brain is working.

What happens in a qEEG session?
During a qEEG session at Polaris BrainGym, a cap containing electrodes, is placed on the scalp. We then inject a tiny bit of conduction gel to detect electrical signals emitted by your brain. It’s basically like an ECG, but for your brain. These signals are then amplified, digitized, and processed using advanced software, allowing our team of experts to generate detailed maps of your brain activity. Exciting huh?

What Can qEEG Reveal?
The resulting qEEG brain maps offer a wealth of information about brain function, including:

Brainwave Patterns:
qEEG identifies specific patterns of brainwave activity, such as beta, alpha, theta, and delta waves, providing insights into cognitive states and emotional regulation.

Functional Connectivity:
By analyzing the coherence and connectivity between different brain regions, qEEG reveals how efficiently information is processed and transmitted within the brain.

Neuro-modulatory Activity:
qEEG can assess the efficacy of neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, shedding light on conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression, insomnia, OCD, memory loss, PTSD, and more.
