Electroencephalography, or EEG, is a tool that measures and displays the electrical activity of your brain. It works by placing EEG sensors on the head, which act as tiny microphones and can tell when electrical activity from the brain increases or decreases. When displayed on a screen, this activity looks like waves – hence “brainwaves.”
Brainwaves reveal the type of rhythm that is created when the cells in your brain talk to one another. These cells, called neurons, are sending electronic messages at all times – even during sleep. But the type and amount of messages being sent change depending on what you are doing.
Here is one example of how a brainwave type can be measured and what it means:
Brainwaves are connected to our behaviors, emotions, and thoughts. The eVox Brain Map uses EEG to help your doctor understand the way your brain functions. The better your doctor understands your brain activity, the clearer your roadmap to a better brain becomes. Your doctor may recommend biofeedback to retrain your brainwaves toward optimal function, leading to restored health, healing, and functionality.
