Videonystagmography is a special test designed to observe and record eye movements. Eye movement pathology is extremely common in concussion, add/adhd, migraine, neurodegenerative diseases, inner ear problems and a host of other brain-based disorders. The eye movement recordings help our doctors determine if and where there is dysfunction in the brain, and it helps them determine appropriate treatment plans for each unique condition.
Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP)
CDP allows us to measure your balance and center of pressure accurately and quantitatively. Balance is made up of various systems within the body and this test allows us to assess the functional state of these systems. The areas involved with balance include the visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems. During this test the patient stands on a force plate and has to remain as still as possible. We can test the patient in many different conditions to give us a window which regions of the brain are not performing well.
Quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG)
The qEEG allows us to quantitatively measure and track brain waves in live time. At any given point of time, whether we are stressed, happy, sad, there is a pattern of brain activity. The qEEG measures this brain activity and creates a “brain map.” We can compare your brain map with an immense database of brain maps to see if your brain is in a state of stress, depression, anxiety, inattentiveness and many other patterns. Once we have this information, we can do certain therapies to eventually change your current brain map to one that is more functional.
