What EEG Findings Can Tell Us
An EEG is an electroencephalogram (EEG) measure of electrical patterns of the brain, which create a graph that reflect cortical activity – these are more commonly known as brainwaves.
As part of the MeRTsm assessment procedure, we use a form of EEG that is often referred to as ‘brain mapping’ to capture critical information about brain function, as well as electrocardiogram (ECG), which also maps the electrical activity of the heart.
Every EEG is unique and specific to the individual. It reflects the current metabolic and attention state of the brain, altering according to consciousness, alertness and neurological state.
An EEG reviews brainwave activity that may influence behaviours. This allows us to customise an approach to therapy that delivers the best results.
Obtaining an EEG recording is painless and non-invasive. It takes around 40 minutes.
IDENTIFYING AND OPTIMISING BRAINWAVE ACTIVITY
An EEG scan will help us identify areas of the brain that may not be communicating the way they should and provide clues to how brainwave activity might contribute to behaviours being presented.
This includes deficits that can contribute to anxiety, communications and sensory processing, excesses that could contribute to attention, focus and depression – to name but a few.
