QEEG Brain Mapping

Neurofeedback

What is QEEG?

A Quantitative ElectroEncephaloGram is a recording of your brain waves (EEG) that is used to create visuals map of your brain activity, in patterns that are stable day to day, called Endophenotypes. Our experienced staff sits down with you and teaches you to walk through data, and learn your unique neuroscience. We rely on the EEG, and gtting one is a necessary preliminary step before you begin Neurofeedback training.

We also combine the EEG with a CPT evaluation, aka Executive Function Testing, to tease apart how your attention performance is operating. 

Once we process your QEEG and performance data, and teach you to read it, you teach us what is important in that data. Together we gain greater understanding of how to design your individualized brain training program.

At Peak Brain we perform an initial QEEG and also a follow-up after every 20-30 sessions of neurofeedback. Comparing the maps helps to develop evidence of change you make, and helps refine goals and protocols.

How is QEEG used?

QEEG “Brain Mapping” provides us with a lot of information, including how your brain may be unusual across EEG frequencies (speed, power, and distribution), connectivity patterns, and how your brain changes state.

In clinical QEEG, your recording is compared to a database of thousands of “typical” brains, with age matched. All QEEG recordings are inspected to rule out dramatic issues, and identify patterns that diverge from typical. This information helps identify functional resources of your brain, and helps target your goals for peak brain performance.

Don’t be concerned about being compared to average, we are all weird. The point is not to find differences from typical, but to see if they matter, and inform avenues you can pursue for change.


After exploring your QEEG and developing your goals around brain and performance resources, Peak Brain can support you with a personalized program of Neurofeedback at Home.

What to Expect when Getting your EEG recorded?

  • An EEG takes about 20 minutes to set up, and then another 20 minutes to record
  • We review the data with you a few days later, via video
  • The process is painless and non-invasive.
  • You are fitted with a cap which is then filled with gel.
  • The cap records your brain waves from multiple scalp locations.
  • First we will record 10 minutes with your eyes closed, then 10 with them open.
  • The last shower before your QEEG recording, wash your hair and rinse very well.
  • AVOID CONDITIONER and shampoos with conditioner or “creme” rinse. The waxes in those products make it very hard to get a good EEG signal.
  • PLEASE AVOID CAFFEINE the morning before and ideally 18 hours before your QEEG. Otherwise don’t do anything differently (eating or sleeping habits).
  • Please discuss any medications you are on with us before scheduling your QEEG. Generally avoiding meds and supplements until after your QEEG is ideal.
  • Psychostimulants (Adderall, Ritalin, etc) take 48 hours to wash out of the EEG. Cannabis takes about 24 unless edible forms, then 48 hours.
