1. Select Your Assessment Type

1A. primary diagnostic assessments

Comprehensive

FullCap qEEG+EEG Assessment

Our most comprehensive brain diagnostic assessment comprising of an EEG analysis by a board-certified neurologist to eliminate possible underlying medical condition in addition to a quantitative or qEEG analysis by an internationally certified expert panelist.

CLINICAL-Q

Abbreviated 5-Site Assessment

The 5-site Clinical qEEG is a simplified snapshot of performance in the “Executive Brain“, i.e., the frontal lobes, the Central Strip & a posterior site. It offers a preliminary impression of attentional control, memory capacity, mental arousal/alertness, emotional regulation prior to a comprehensive assessment.

1B. SPECIALTY assessments

1-SITE

Abbreviated 1-Site Assessment

A limited single-site measurement of key biomarkers, taken from the vertex of the scalp to get a snapshot of attention, brain “energy” expenditure tendencies.  Suitable for demonstration purposes and/or as a prelude to more comprehensive assessments.

PHYSIOLOGICAL STRESS

Physiological Stress Assessment

A reliable assessment to uncover physiological systems that are stress intolerant for optimization training. Individuals perform stress-inducing tasks while physiological signals from the heart, respiratory system, muscle tension, temperature & electrodermal activity are monitored simultaneously.

MIND & BODY

Mind & Body Performance Assessment

The mind-body diagnostic assessment measures EEG signal to determine arousal level, level of mental quiescence while concurrently monitoring physiological signals. Best suited to peak performers aiming to improve mind-body resilience & to raise optimal state.

2B. OPTIONAL ADD-ON: QEEG & other PANELists

JAY GUNKELMAN

QEEG Diplomate
About this expert

Jay Gunkelman is recognized as one of the world’s top leaders in the field of EEG and QEEG, and has processed over half a million EEGs since 1972.

He has served as president of The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR), as well as a board member and treasurer of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) and is a past-president of the Biofeedback Society of California.

Jay was the first EEG technologist to be certified in QEEG (1996) and was granted Diplomate status in 2002.

He has conducted, published & participated in hundreds of research papers, articles, books and meetings internationally. He has co-authored the textbook on EEG artifacting (2001) and is currently working on projects and publications related to his seminal paper on EEG endophenotypes (2005, Clinical Electroencephalography).

He is a popular lecturer worldwide on the topic of QEEG and phenotype identification of neurological disorders.

VINCE CLARK, PhD

Professor of Translational Neuroscience

About this expert

Dr. Clark has worked with MRN as Director of Neuroscience, then as Scientific Director recruiting scientists and helping MRN to increase its grant portfolio by expanding into new areas of research such as addiction, accelerated learning, and multimodal imaging.

He employs structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), event-related potentials (ERPs) and methods of transcranial brain stimulation, including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), as well as other methods to examine human brain structure and function.

His recent area of research examines how tDCS can be used to increase learning and performance in healthy subjects, and the mechanisms by which tDCS produces changes in brain function and behavior.

Brain stimulation may lead to a variety of innovations in classroom education and professional training, along with new treatments for psychiatric and neurological disorders.

2C. OPTIONAL ADD-ON: NEUROLOGIST PANELists

JONATHAN WALKER, MD

QEEG Diplomate, Neurologist

About this expert

Jonathan Walker, M.D., M.S., B.C.N., QEEG/D is a Board Certified Neurologist.

He combines his traditional neurological medical practice with QEEG-guided neurotherapy (EEG-neurofeedback) which is a successful non-drug treatment for a variety of medical conditions including ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, head injury, depression, epilepsy, behavior disorders, anger control, and depression.

Also Board Certified in Electroencephalography, Dr. Walker is President of the QEEG Certification Board.

Dr. Walker is a nationally recognized pioneer in the field of neurotherapy who has researched in other medical areas.

In addition to seeing patients in the clinic, Dr. Walker interprets test results for other neurofeedback practitioners in the United States and other countries, offering protocols for QEEG-guided neurofeedback training to remediate the growing number of medical conditions for which that treatment is dramatically effective.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Fullcap EEG/QEEG performed?

The EEG/QEEG procedure is derived by measuring the electrical activity (EEG) of the brain by a non-invasive (nothing is put inside the brain) procedure of placing a cap with multiple electrodes over the scalp.

EEG recordings are taken across a number of conditions or tasks, including a) eyes closed, b) eyes open, c) cognitive test of graded difficulty. The EEG data is then processed using mathematical algorithms and statistical analysis. Data is then evaluated for percentage change across states and compared with a normative database for state variance.

How reliable is the QEEG for diagnostic purposes?

The diagnostic use of the Quantitative EEG (QEEG) has a strong research base that spans over ten years.

Experts in neuroscience regard EEG/QEEG as the definitive diagnostic assessment for neurological & neuro-developmental disorders including epilepsy, ADD/ADHD and other neuro-psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc.

How is the QEEG relevant in the context of medical conditions?
QEEGs have been evidenced to be efficacious in predicting differential response rates to conventional medications. In one study, approximately 80% of obsessive compulsive (OCD) patients who exhibited increased alpha (brainwave bandwidth) power responded well to a class of medication called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), compared to 80% of OCD patients with increased theta activity who did not respond to SSRIs (Princhep 1993).
 
 
How does the QEEG help in the treatment of special needs children?
In addition, using QEEG to guide treatment markedly increases the efficacy of treatment in contrast to simply relying on behavioral diagnosis (Gunkelman, J. 2006). Within the autistic population for instance, QEEG has been successfully used to guide neurofeedback (EEG Biofeedback) training leading to significant improvements in speech, communication and reduced aggressiveness (Neubrander, J., Linden, M., Kerson, C., Gunkelman, J. 2011).
