Brain Mapping in Miami, FL
What is Brain Mapping?
Brain mapping is an innovative procedure that maps out the numerous connections within the human brain. A map of the brain helps Dr. Vasconcellos detect areas that may be over or under-active. Brain maps guide her diagnosis of neurological disorders in children and contributes to a comprehensive treatment plan.
How Much Does Brain Mapping Cost?
WeMind Institute accepts most medical insurances for the cost of the brain mapping procedure. Our patient coordinator reviews your coverage and explains any out-of-pocket costs that you may incur, such as co-payments, deductibles, and co-insurance.
What Pediatric Conditions Are Diagnosed with Brain Mapping?
Human brain mapping is used to diagnose several disorders of the brain, from emotional conditions, such as depression and anxiety, to cognitive function. Some of the pediatric conditions that can be diagnosed with a map of the brain are:
- Facial recognition
- Speech organization
- Problem solving
- Decision making and impulse control
What Happens During the Brain Mapping Procedure?
The brain function map procedure takes about 15 minutes. We Mind Institute offers qEEG brain mapping for children. A cap is placed on the head that is designed with a series of electrodes. Data is collected by the system and recorded as a color-coded map of the brain. Dr. Vasconcellos typically performs a baseline neuroscience brain mapping and follow-up scans to measure improvement once your child begins treatment. Your child remains comfortable during the entire procedure.
