This workshop will provide a basic and complete overview of scientific and clinical principles of this important area. The material to be presented is drawn from a diverse range of references, which would require significant time for a novice to absorb. After this workshop, participants should be able to describe and discuss the current state of the art in qEEG and its applications, in general clinical use.
Based upon the content of this presentation attendees will be able to:
• Understand the generation of the EEG from a physiological point of view
• Understand how clinically relevant brain function can be discerned using EEG and qEEG techniques.
• Understand how qEEG can be used to assess clients, and to assess client treatment progress.
• Describe how inverse solutions (LORETA, etc) can be used to assess brain function.
• Explain how individual differences, coping and compensating strategies, and peak performance reflect in the qEEG.
• Explain how electrophysiology and volume conduction produce the EEG.
• Describe the basic frequency bands of the EEG, and how they reflect brain activation.
• Explain the concentration/relaxation model of EEG generation and its relevance to clinical practice.
