Neurofeedback Brain Mapping

Brain Mapping also known as Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is a method of recording electrical activity in the form of brainwaves and analyzing the results.

The most important use of the qEEG is to derive problematic areas of brain
Functioning through a statistical database.

Quantitative EEG
Brain activity is measured by different speed or frequencies

Self-regulation is used to promote and allow the nervous system to function better

A better functioning brain is able to
manage emotions better
regulate attention and sleep
perform a higher level.

Using a computerized analysis of heart rate and respiratory rate information, it is possible to measure the rate of variability and use the information to create a change in emotional state.

Neurofeedback, or EEG Biofeedback, is a way of training the brain to function more efficiently

Conditions which are helped by Neurofeedback include:

Peak performance
Learning difficulties
Heart Rate Variability

Heart rate variability (HRV) is the beat-to-beat variations in heart rate and is intimately tied to a person’s emotional state.
When we are in a state of stress, anxiety, anger or sadness our heart rate variations tends to be lower, disordered and chaotic.
In contrast, when we are in a positive emotional state, like love, laughter or gratitude, our heart rate variation tends to be increased, ordered and rhythmic.
Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and Parasympathetic vs. Sympathetic Branches
The autonomic nervous system is part of the peripheral nervous system and is responsible for regulating involuntary body functions, such as blood flow, breathing, heart rate and digestion.
The sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system regulates fight-or-flight responses. This division also performs such as mobilizing us for protection, relaxing the bladder, speeding up heart rate and dilating eye pupils.
The parasympathetic division calms us down, conserves physical resources, helps maintain normal body functioning and performs such tasks including slowing down heart rate, constricting eye pupils and controlling the bladder.
Our brain creates simple electricity through an electrochemical process, which allows it to carry out all of its functions, including learning, communicating and managing emotions.
