What is QEEG (Quantitative Encephalogram) and EEG (Electroencephalography)?

 Quantitative EEG "Brain Map" is an extensive non invasive test which gives us a clear picture of how your brain functions as compared to a "normal" database. We can zero in on area's of your brain that are either OVER functioning, or UNDER functioning. Abnormal brainwave patterns can be visualized in real time and usually reveal problematic areas within your brain. The collected data will be evaluated by Dr. Jay Gunkelman, a Diplomat in the field of EEG, who works directly with our certified doctors to create an individualized treatment plan targeted specifically to your needs and the way your brain functions.

gEEG report can be used to measure the effect of Emerald's NAD IV treatment

  The human brain is the most resilient and adaptable structure in nature, the source of all of our emotions, perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors. The brain is made up of hundreds of billions of microscopic elements called neurons which use chemical messages to regulate electrical activity throughout the brain. The brain communicates to itself and with the body by means of these electrical changes and our emotions, perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors are the result of the totality of these electrical and chemical changes, although the exact mechanism of how brain becomes mind is not understood. The purpose of this paper is to provide a description of the brain’s electrical activity, how it can be measured and how a quantitative EEG (QEEG) report can be used to measure the effect of Emerald's NAD IV treatment

Understanding qEEG

What is the History of QEEG?

  The first report on electrical brain activity in humans, published in 1929, allowed clinicians and scientists to peek into the skull and watch the brain in action for the first time in a meaningful way. It was recognized early on that the brain's electrical signals or electroencephalogram (EEG) contained regular patterns that might be better understood by their spectral (frequency) content. Bursts of sinuosoidal waves occurred and reoccurred in a predictable fashion and these bursts corresponded with mental states, primarily inattention or inactivity. Initial attempts to quantify brain activity with Fourier analysis were promising (Berger, 1932; Dietsch, 1932; Grass & Gibbs, 1938) but the field of quantitative electroencephalography itself would not emerge until machines could assist us in our analysis (Brazier, 1961). The Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) algorithm, invented in 1965, deserves much of the credit for early progress in this field as it significantly simplified computation of spectral coefficients (Cooley & Tukey, 1965; Dumermuth & Fluhler 1967). Computers allow us to digitize signals recorded from the scalp, identify specific electrical wave patterns within each signal, display these patterns on a computer screen, and store the digital data, all within microseconds. The rapid development of inexpensive desktop computers in the 1990’s placed QEEG technology in the hands of clinicians. The powerful desktop computers of today has paved the way for new and faster methods of analysis such as combining QEEG and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for a 3-dimensional view of brain activity. As Figure 1 shows, the advent of inexpensive powerful computers continues to accelerate the popularity of quantitative EEG analysis.
