Brain Scan and Neurofeedback Therapy


What we call the “Brain Scan” or “Brain Mapping” at Virginia Family Medicine is a simpler name for a “quantitative electroencephalogram” or “qEEG”. A quantitative electroencephalogram is a specialized neuroimaging technique that involves the analysis and measurement of electrical activity in the brain using an electroencephalogram (EEG). qEEG is a non-invasive method that provides quantitative analysis that is used in research and clinical contexts for various purposes: assist in the diagnosis of neurological disorders and conditions, and help determine the most suitable medication or therapy for a patient based on their brain activity patterns.


The CNS Vital Signs assessment is a non-invasive clinical procedure to efficiently and objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance or domains under challenge (cognition stress test). It covers a range of mental processes from simple motor performance, attention, memory, and executive function.

QB Test is a FDA cleared and CE marked computer-based test that objectively measures the core signs of ADHD: Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention.


Neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy, is a therapeutic technique that aims to help individuals regulate their brain activity by providing real-time feedback on their brainwave patterns. Neurofeedback is used for a variety of purposes, including: treating conditions such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Can be used in the management of certain types of migraines and TMJ. Neurofeedback can also be used to enhance cognitive performance and focus.


Brain Coaching is a one-on-one supplement to neurofeedback to help you reach your goals for optimizing your brain function. In these sessions, we assist in helping you process any changes you may be experiencing from neurofeedback and help to promote your brain health, primarily through lifestyle factors and cognitive exercises. Upon taking the CNS Vital Signs assessment, we review what cognitive domains to target in brain coaching sessions. During these sessions, we will be challenging your brain to create and strengthen neural connections in specific areas of the brain. Brain Coaching can help you improve your attention, concentration, and memory.
