TMS qEEG Guided Treatment
What is qEEG?
Quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) is a non-invasive assessment technique that measures electrical activity in the brain. It provides a detailed map of the brain’s functioning, which can aid diagnosis and inform treatment plans for various neurological and psychiatric conditions.
qEEG can detect abnormal patterns of brain activity associated with mental and neurological disorders. It can also be used to monitor the progress of treatment and identify changes in brain function over time.
Additionally, qEEG can be used to identify biomarkers of brain health and predict the risk of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Overall, qEEG is a valuable tool for improving the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as enhancing our understanding of brain function and health.
qEEG TMS stands for Quantitative Electroencephalography Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. This is called Guided TMS.
What is Guided TMS?
Guided TMS utilises the qEEG brain mapping method to target specific parts of the brain, allowing for a precise and tailored treatment plan and outcome.
- EEG stands for Electroencephalogram. This technique measures existing electrical pulses in the brain’s cortex, as neurons “light up” as we think, act, and feel the world around us. Thus, the EEG allows us to see brain activity in real-time.
- qEEG Stands for Quantitative EEG. A modern type of EEG analysis that involves recording digital EEG signals which are processed, transformed, and analyzed using complex mathematical algorithms.
Guided TMS vs Standard TMS
What makes guided TMS different from standard TMS therapy is that it allows us to tailor your treatment plan, and measure the neurological outcomes of TMS in real-time. As a result, this makes guided TMS treatment more precise than standard TMS.
The information we gain through qEEG studies allows us to deliver TMS therapy that is customised and guided by your unique brain waves.
qEEG Guided TMS (Before & After)
A QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) map is a visual representation of the electrical activity in different brain areas, obtained through EEG recording and analysis. The map is typically presented as a colour-coded display of brainwave activity.
- Red: Overactivity (3)
- White: Normal (0)
- Blue: Underactivity (-3)

What is tDCS Therapy for? Mental health conditions like depression and anxiety can affect a person’s mood, thoughts, and behaviour. These conditions can be debilitating, affecting a person’s work, relationships, and personal life. Thankfully, advancements in neuroscience have led to innovative treatments, one of which is transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). In addition, tDCS therapy […]
An Effective Way to Reduce Pain Fibromyalgia is a complex medical condition characterised by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance and cognitive dysfunction. People with fibromyalgia often suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. The burden of fibromyalgia on an individual’s mental and physical health can be debilitating, causing significant distress and disability. The […]
