qEEG Guided Neurofeedback with Dr Richard Soutar

Date/Time: TBD
Location: TBD/Virtual
This workshop covers basic qEEG for the clinician and how to utilize it for purposes of neurofeedback. It is designed to introduce you to the basic concepts required to generate, read and interpret a brain map as well as derive protocols. We cover all the basic aspects of map generation including artifacting raw EEG, generating basic map reports and source localization techniques such as Laplacian Analysis and LORETA. We also review and evaluate the existing databases, such as Skil, Neuroguide and the New Mind Database System. In addition we examine methods on how to link abnormal EEG to symptoms and behavior as well as detect metabolic correlates that may confound neurofeedback training. The qEEG is a powerful clinical tool that allows you to formulate effective protocols based on empirical statistical data and then empirically track changes due to a variety of interventions.
