The path to brain health begins with an individualized and accurate assessment of brain function. We offer four different types of assessments to help you achieve your goals.
Neuropsychological evaluations document strengths and weaknesses in a variety of brain functions, including general intelligence, executive function (planning, organization, conceptualization, abstraction), attention, memory, language, perception, sensorimotor functions, mood and emotional functioning, and personality traits.
Evaluations may be recommended specifically to:
assist in a differential diagnosis
assess function before and after treatment
provide a baseline for later comparison
document changes over recovery from brain injury or stroke
QEEG, or quantitative electroencephalogram, is a method for assessing electrical activity in the brain. The QEEG brain map is used to better understand an individual's brain functioning. In addition to determining if there is too much or too little of certain types of brain activity, QEEG can also identify problems with wiring between different brain regions. This information is then used, in combination with 1) knowledge of brain anatomy, 2) a person's symptoms and/or goals, and 3) knowledge of activity patterns associated with clinical disorders to develop protocols for neurofeedback training. Over the course of neurofeedback treatment, the brain is re-assessed with QEEG on a regular basis to monitor progress and adjust treatment protocols.
