Brain Mapping (Quantitative EEG - QEEG/CEE)
Brain Mapping (Quantitative EEG) is an advaced form of classical EEG with the help of computer technology.
Brain mapping is effectively applied in Memory Center Neuropsychiatry Center since 1998. QEEG is based on the following principle: analog signals produced by the brain is converted into digital form and counted after calibration, and finally split four main frequency groups.
There are thousands of biological processes in our brains. The last process is bioelectric activity. The measurement of this activity gives general information about brain, like the measurement of body temperature gives us information about the infection.
Signals produced by brain are meaningful waves. Clinical interpretation gives preliminary information:
- Beta Frequency: high level of stress,
- Alpha Frequency: resting state,
- Delta Frequency: fatigue state,
- Theta Frequency: fatigue and hypnotic activity.
Comparing bioelectric changes after treatment gives as meaningful information about response to treatment and bioavailability.
Brain mapping is also a valuable method in early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. In psychiatry, it is used as an optional method to support diagnosis and follow-up treatment, if physician deems appropriate. In our institution, HZI and Neuroguide technology and normative data base are used for this purpose.
