EEGym® adds QEEG Services

The QEEG (quantitative EEG, a map of brain electrical patterns referenced to normative databases) issue is major in neurofeedback circles. Most of us old-timers don’t really see a need for QEEG in determining protocols–it is definitely not necessary for the three most often used systems in at EEGym.
