Brain mapping is a non-invasive procedure that painlessly and safely measures brain activity. While other tests measure brain structure, brain mapping measures its function. Brain mapping can:
- Identify irregular brain wave patterns and the regions in which they occur
- Point to areas where brain activity may be too high or too low
- Reveal areas of the brain that are not optimally communicating with other
- Aid in diagnosing psychiatric and cognitive conditions
- Identify brain injuries
- Indicate your level of stress
- Brain mapping can help with the therapy (individual, marital, or family) process by creating a better understanding of the symptoms.
Most importantly, brain mapping yields critical information needed to design a customized neurofeedback program tailored to an individual’s needs.
