Presented by Tom Collura and Richard McAlister and Steve Warner: This 3-hour workshop provides an orientation and overview of the use of QEEG and Neurofeedback in clinical practice and research. The historical origins of QEEG and of neurofeedback will be described, along with the technical and physiological underpinnings of these techniques. Current methods including digital QEEG recording and interpretation, application to neurofeedback, and use in scope of practice will be described. The use of QEEG to guide neurofeedback and to assess treatment progress will be shown with clinical examples.
This workshop will review the major EEG-based connectivity measures, both historical and emerging, and further discuss their physiological and clinical relevance. Surface coherence and phase will be shown in examples, as well as sLORETA-based coherence and directed connectivity. This workshop will provide an opportunity to observe and contrast results using these metrics on example clinical cases, both for assessment purposes and for neurofeedback applications.
