Quantitative EEG, or “brain mapping” is a way of assessing the operation and functionality of the client's brain with the comparison of normative and clinical databases, and the processing of 20 minutes of brainwaves (EEG) recording. EEG is the measurement, using digital technology, of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which primarily reflect brainwave activity on the cortex (the “ bark” of the brain). Neurotherapists use this knowledge to adjust cerebral function towards ideals with operant conditioning, counseling, and neuromodulation. Brain mapping is analyzing the electrical activity or "brainwaves."
This process involves two office visits (one for EEG acquisition and a follow up review), as well as a highly customized report, reflecting the state of the art assessment and analysis software at Neurofield, written by either Dr. Dogris or Dr. Thompson. We do not buy “canned” reports generated by software programs, but rather pride ourselves on composing individualized reports accessible to the lay person and client.
One session costs $150 and lasts for the duration of one hour — however occasionally they are shorter, depending on the demands of the brain and body. We offer sliding scale fees to some individuals who are in economic hardship.
We recommend that you attend a minimum of 10 sessions to have an opportunity toexperience progress toward your goals. Neurofeedback is less like medication and more like a training regimen in noticing effects. Although most people see improvement within 1-5 sessions, some are late responders. It is reasonable to expect a 50% improvement and usually more to your most troubling problems with a full course of sessions.
Progress is best when we see you on or around the same day at the same time each week. This is easiest if you establish a regular appointment schedule. Our 4:00pm time slots are the most popular, since school schedules allow for late afternoon availability. If you need a late afternoon appointment, we recommend that you book you appointments as early in advance as possible.
Please be prepared to pay for services at the time services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept cash, personal check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover Card and American Express.
