This joint presentation will examine clinical cases using the theoretical framework and practical EEG analysis as taught by Jay Gunkelman. Steps in this analysis involve: Looking at raw EEG and determining its most prominent features; linking those features to presenting symptoms and pretreatment testing; and reviewing some derived analyses and data summaries, ie. Spectral Displays, Topographic Displays, and Coherence analyses, and their relationship to presenting symptoms.
After reviewing several cases which highlight this method, some background of the Phenotype Model, as developed by Jay Gunkelman, Martijn Arns and others, will be given, as neurofeedback intervention is implemented. Results of NFB in these cases will be presented. Discussion will focus on the strengths and limitations of the model.
Abnormal profiles of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the plasma phospholipids were observed in patients with closed head injuries, indicating that the metabolic response to injury encompasses changes
This presentation is an introduction of a new protocol, its implications and its use with different disorders. Beta reset protocol was used successfully to treat refractory PTSD and refractory migraines,
An important task of the human central nervous system is to link sensory information to appropriate response. This is the defining characteristic of adaptive behaviour in humans. Such adaptability is
Traumatic Brain injury can manifest clinically in a wide variety of physical and mental presentations. The neuropathology and neuroanatomy underlying a number of these clinical manifestations are presented
After several months of neurofeedback, a young woman said, “I have never been more myself and never known less who I am.” Although her statement is exceptional, her experience is not. By its nature, neurofeedback affects the nature of those who train. In discussions of neurofeedback, we tend to focus on the alleviation of symptoms. This talk seeks to extend the discussion to the effects neurofeedback has not only on symptoms, but also over time, on personality and identity.
The quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) is becoming a viable assessment tool for neurofeedback practitioners. The qEEG information is obtained with comparisons to norm-referenced databases which can be overwhelming to many practitioners. To simplify understanding of the data and improve clinical applicability, we have developed a unique approach to the interpretation of the qEEG.
