How Does Remote qEEG Brain Mapping Work?

The human brain is an incredibly complex organ that scientists still do not completely understand. Despite this, we know that the health of our brains is essential for our overall well-being. A big part of keeping our brains healthy is understanding how they work. This is where brain mapping comes in. 

By mapping the brain, we can learn more about how it works and identify areas requiring medical attention. It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s not at all that complicated. In this blog, you’ll find out how brain mapping is performed and what it can be useful for.

How Does Brain Mapping Work?

Using a headband with sensors on top of the head, a program records electrical signals in your brain. This is known as an electroencephalogram (EEG) test. Using a sensor and conductive paste, you can change the position to cover your entire brain, and real-time readings of your brain will be recorded, which will show in the result.

The process is quick and painless, taking about 30-45 minutes to complete. After the scan, your brain map data is converted into a visual brain map report that explains everything. Specialists will go through the brain map report and identify any areas of concern. The results will then be presented clearly and concisely to each patient. 


Understanding the Test

Data from qEEG tests provides 2 main sources of information:

  • The quantity, or number, of brain waves present in our brain
  • The type of brainwaves flowing through our brain

The word “quantitative” or “q,” in qEEG, states that this brain examination quantifies the number of brainwaves we have compared to typical brainwave activity. The qEEG’s basic component is the electroencephalogram (EEG). The test focuses primarily on brainwaves, and data are combined to form a “map” of our brains.


What Can a Brain Mapping Detect?

The brain map reports provide information on how various regions of the brain function. This data may assist us in recognizing or validating:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Seizures
  • Insomnia
  • Epilepsy
  • Head injuries
  • Brain tumors
  • Memory problems


Brain mapping can also help physicians and behavioral experts confirm that you may have:

  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Trouble managing your emotions
  • Poor problem-solving ability


Doctors and behavioral experts can get this kind of information by looking at the many types of analyses listed in the brain mapping report, which include:

  • Magnitude Analysis
  • Discriminants Analysis
