Phenotype evaluation of the EEG was proposed in a paper in 2005 published in Clinical Electroencephalography and Neurophysiology. The retrospective analysis of many decades of experience has since been actively evaluated, from published works focusing on basic neuroscience (J. Pop-Jordanov), and the work from Holland on medication response prediction (M. Arns).
Additionally there was publication of a prospective study applying phenotype-driven Neurofeedback protocols in clinical addiction, looking at the neuro-cognitive impacts of the approach, as well as the impacts on addiction behavior itself.
The medication prediction work and basic neuroscience studies led to a newer integration of the phenotype model, the ‘brain-rate’ work by Professor Dr Jordan Pop-Jordanov and the European Vigilance model (Bente, 1964) popularised by the work of Professor Dr Gerald Ulrich of Germany.
These validation studies will be reviewed and I will attempt to briefly present a more integrated model, which is ‘in press’ at a societal newsletter level publication, and will be submitted with a more formal systematic evaluation of the vigilance and phenotype models in an ADHD population (this later done was done with M. Arns, and W. Van den Bergh).
Dr Rowe’s presentation discusses the use of scientific theory in driving clinical assessment and treatment through the use of individual patient neurophysiological, neuropsychological and psychological
Quantitative EEG is a direct measure of the electrical energies of the brain which are produced by synapses on the dendrites and cell bodies of cortical pyramidal cells. The network dynamics necessary for proper function of the brain can be disrupted following a traumatic brain injury and can persist for years following even apparently minor injuries with no associated loss of consciousness.
The QEEG data collected in STARTTS Neurofeedback clinic indicates that the excessive temporal lobe alpha and frontal lobe disturbances are two profiles seen most frequently in traumatized clients.
This presentation will review the research of Dr. Robert Coben with Autistic Children with a view to understanding his coherence training methodology. Dr. Gary Schummer has analysed and adapted this methodology in his own research with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum children. Drs. Coben and Schummer base their coherence training on the Neuro Rep analysis of Dr. William Hudspeth.
In the 1990s Prof. Yuri Kropotov started his research in the field of quantitative EEG and evoked potentials in normal subjects, in ADHD population and in neurological patients to whom intracranial electrodes were implanted for diagnosis and therapy.
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 presumed to be mediated by working memory systems that process and respond to detected stimuli according to experience, needs, context and intention, and underpin the capacity to realise goals and plans.
