DescriptionA technique which attempts to comprehend the complex structure of brain and its activities in detail
Symptomsaids in understanding the connection between different parts of the brain and their consequent behaviour. Types of brain mapping techniques: Electroencephalography (EEG): Electrical impulses of the brain are measured. Electroencephalography (EEG): Positron Emission Tomography (PET):Intake of nuclear medicine or radioactive drug by the patient in order to image the body organs and tissues and show their corresponding activities. Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Functional MRI (fMRI):Used when there is a change in the flow of blood to a specific area of the brain. The neural activity of that area changes and requires more oxygen and hence the blood flow increases to an active part of the brain. Functional MRI (fMRI): Pharmacological functional MRI (phMRI):Studying the changes in neural activities of the brain to understand the effects of substances in a non-invasive way
Pre Procedureespecially helpful in understanding the mechanism behind disorders like depression and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Pharmacological functional MRI (phMRI): Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS):Used to cure depression in a non-invasive way when all other methods and treatments have failed
During Procedureinvolves electromagnetic stimulation of the brain in order to control the mood of a person. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS):
Post ProcedureThis procedure is ideal for people suffering from neurological and nervous system disorders which include ADD/ADHD, depression, brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, memory loss, etc.
Risk And Complications1. Ensure a time for mapping when you are most alert.2. Take a sound sleep before the procedure.3. Have a balanced meal 1-3 hours before the procedure. 4. If you are on medication, discuss and consult about it with the doctor before the procedure.5. Wash your hair properly before going for a session and avoid the use of styling gels, oil, etc. on the day of your session.
