What is an EEG Brain Map?
Neurofeedback is a process that involves feedback, hence the name.
The feedback comes in real-time, as the patient receives visual and possibly auditory information allowing them to adjust their internal state to optimize their brainwaves and “win” at the game they are playing. Feedback is also attained over longer periods of time, using something called an EEG brain map.
EEG brain mapping is the most easily accessible, cutting edge technology to assess what is happening in your most important organ, your brain. Historically psychiatry has been a subjective field, with an assessment or diagnosis made by a doctor and based entirely on verbal input from the patient. This process is inexact at best, and can even lead to misdiagnosis and prescription of the wrong medications and treatments.
