The process is simple, painless and provides valuable information on what areas of the brain are properly ordered and which are not.
Recordings are taken with eyes closed and eyes open and several versions of reports can be generated promptly as SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training software communicates directly with our brain map database.
Intake & EEG Assessments:
SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training’s biopsychosocial assessments are scientifically validated tests used to review different levels in biological, psychological, and social factors that can be contributing to a problem or problems with a potential trainee. These include a Physiology Screening, Interactive Self-Inventory and Cognitive Emotional Checklist.
Trainees complete an initial biopsychosocial intake assessment prior to completing a Quantitative EEG (qEEG) Brain Map and cognitive performance tests. These biopsychosocial assessments are best used at the initial intake, periodically throughout the neurofeedback process, as well as for post evaluations, and are integral in properly guiding therapeutic processes for each individual.
This section clients will provide a detailed history of symptoms and background information.
Physiology Screening is a tool used to help determine if a client may have metabolic issues that could slow the neurofeedback process.
Interactive Self Inventory is a social and approach behavior assessment tool used to measure areas related to toxic stress that may be affecting these behaviors and can be correlated with patterns in the qEEG brain map to further explain and guide therapeutic approaches including neurofeedback.
Cognitive Emotional Checklist is a standardized psychological test that allows a client to rate the severity of various cognitive and emotional issues they may or may not be experiencing. This checklist is then correlated side by side with qEEG data in the brain map report for easy interpretation.
Cognitive Performance Tests (CPT) are statistically validated tests which measure 11 areas of cognition such as; attention, short term memory, list acquisition, executive function, etc. All 11 tests can be utilized to evaluate baselines and progress in specific cognitive skills, or based on the qEEG analysis specific CPTs will be indicated for that client to complete.
A Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is a method of analyzing brainwave dysregulation by recording and measuring electrical activity in the brain and results are shown in a simplified Client or Clinical brain map report showing areas of normal and dysregulated patterns in conjunction with the Cognitive Emotional Checklist of the client’s self reporting.
