This presentation address will relate research findings from various disciplines to help understand and identify the many possible causal factors for ADHD, Depression and Anxiety, hopefully leading to more effective treatment. How biological drives and environmental factors engender core belief systems. Brainstem neuromodulators and neurotransmitter systems involved Why 70-90% of patients with IBS also experience anxiety, panic and depression. Genes and Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). How some SNPs affect mental health. Nutrigenomics: Nutrient and SNPs interactions. How nutrient deficiencies affect mental health. QEEG power, asymmetry and coherence underpinnings. Effectiveness of symptom based Psychiatric treatment versus QEEG based. Post Concussion Syndrome masquerading as Anxiety, ADHD and Depression. QEEG as an adjunct in differential diagnosis. Multidisciplinary approach more effective than single paradigm.
AD/HD is one of the most common psychiatric disorders of childhood, affecting approximately 5% of primary school children. Almost all models of the disorder accept that the behavioural cluster which
Learning theory principles that contribute to details of application for the most effective neurofeedback training program will be presented. It has been established that many learning theory principles (classical conditioning, shaping, generalization, etc) are involved in the application known as neurofeedback. This talk is aimed to elaborate on the learning theory principles involved in the effective application of neurofeedback. Additionally, this talk provides the current evidence supporting the use of neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD and recommendations on the implementation of neurofeedback in clinical practice.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of neurodevelopmental conditions that are characterized by social, communicative, and behavioural impairments. Although the neurobiological basis of ASD is
