eVox EEG Brain Mapping
Learn more about eVox EEG Brain Mapping
eVox EEG brain mapping testing is a non-invasive, painless test that measures brainwave and brain function. It helps to identify abnormal function and customize a treatment plan that is best for your optimum brain function.
The eVox system is a valuable tool to help clinicians objectively measure and optimally manage patients with memory loss, cognitive impairment, and other stress related conditions. eVox provides an assessment of the brain and cognition using multiple electrophysiological technologies combined in one portable, non-invasive, easy-to-use, in-office device.
An Easy-to-use, Objective Tool to Help Identify and Assess Cognitive Impairment
Traditionally, cognitive impairment has been assessed through subjective tests such as the Mini-Mental Status Examination (MMSE). Now, with the eVox system, there is an objective tool to help identify and assess cognitive impairment. The eVox system provides an objective and expansive functional measurement of the brain and cognition, using multiple electrophysiological technologies combined in one portable, non-invasive, easy-to-use, in-office device. These technologies include:
- Electroencephalography (EEG)
- Electrocardiography (ECG)
- Event-Related Potential (ERP)
eVox has made these advanced tools available and easy to use in everyday clinical practice. The core electrophysiological modalities inside the eVox system are designed for identification and assessment of the dynamic changes that take place throughout the brain during cognitive processing tasks. This helps to:
Objectively Manage Memory Loss and Cognitive Function Over Time
eVox brain mapping provides clinicians with objective data that has a high degree of sensitivity in detecting subtle variations in brain activity and performance. This makes the eVox system useful as an adjunct to traditional subjective clinical assessments when managing patients over time. Without the eVox system, subtle variations from the norm and longitudinal changes may otherwise go undetected.
The eVox system may be particularly effective in understanding a patients response to therapy during the earlier stages of pathology. This is a time when early identification of physiologic changes and proper clinical intervention may delay the progression of disease. The eVox system can provide valuable information for clinicians as they seek to objectively define their patients response to:
- Pharmacologic therapy
- Nutritional supplementation
- Hormone Therapy
- Behavioral therapy
- Diet and exercise

What Is Brain Mapping?
Brain mapping studies assess specific regions of the brain and the tasks they perform and how well they function. Electroencephalogram (EEG) scans can be used to map and understand the brain. Brain mapping shows how parts of the brain function and how they work together.
Benefits of Brain Mapping
The brain consists of billions of nerve cells arranged in patterns that control your thought, emotion, behavior, movement and sensation. These nerve patterns form brain structures that each have specific functions and oversee your memory, learning, speech, mood, sleep, cognition, recall, pleasure, sexual desire, eating habits, appetite, impulse control, decision making, judgment and thought process.
New advances in brain mapping have shown that the brain is plastic, which means that it changes and is fluid. We once believed that certain brain characteristics such as IQ were static, or unchanging, but now we know that this is not true.
Brain mapping helps doctors to better understand brain disorders like autism, ADHD, learning disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, sleep and eating disorders, dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease and lead to better diagnoses and treatment
Tools for Brain Mapping
One way doctors can map the brain is to hook a subject up to an EEG device and watch as he or she performs different tasks. The brain mapping EEG reads the electrical patterns of brain activity by using electrodes that are placed on the subject’s scalp. These electrical impulses are then recorded on a graph to be read and interpreted. Brain mapping EEG allows a doctor to measure specific brain area functions by how they light up while performing a task.
We provide a variety of treatment options based on your clinical history and testing. Some of our treatment options include IV nutritional therapy, amino acid therapy, detoxification therapy and bio-identical hormone replacement. Our goal is to restore and preserve brain health by using a holistic approach.*
