Neuroscience topics emphasize the human nervous system, particularly the central nervous system, biological and genetic factors in neuronal health, and brain imaging techniques, such as QEEG and fMRI. Many articles focus on how these factors impact human thought, emotion, and behavior.

QEEG Biomarkers For Rapid Identification Of Treatment Effectiveness In Major Depression

It is a long, slow slog to treat major depression. Many antidepressant medications are available, but no single biomarker or diagnostic test exists to predict which one is right for an individual. As a result, for more than half of all patients, the first drug prescribed doesn’t work, and it can take months to figure […]

“MOST-EEG” Gives New 3-D Perspective On Brain Activities

University of Victoria (UVic) researcher Phil Zeman has developed a new and less expensive procedure for analyzing EEG (electroencephalogram) data that identifies the location of special brain activities. Traditionally, it is functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) that is used to identify which areas of the brain are active during different mental states. Zeman’s technology is […]

BrainScope Receives $20 Million To Build A Portable EEG Device

The Washington Post reports that the private company Brainscope received $20,000,000 to build a portable electroencephalogram (EEG) device. The company foresees an initial military application whereby an objective EEG assessment could determine the severity of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained by a soldier in the field. Other non-military applications are expected, such as with […]

Potential QEEG Markers of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Their Implications for Neurofeedback

Using QEEG technology, researchers have identified a left frontotemporal dysfunction in persons who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, better known as OCD*. Persons with OCD have disturbing recurrent thoughts, as well as compulsive behaviors that are difficult to suppress and provide temporary relief from anxiety. The authors note that previous research has generally suggested a frontal […]

Potential QEEG Markers of Childhood Stuttering And Their Implications for Neurofeedback

Researchers compared the quantitative EEGs (QEEG) of 26 children with a history of stuttering to 21 age matched controls with no stuttering and may have identified important “EEG markers” of pediatric stuttering*. The authors’ epidemiological review of pediatric stuttering finds that this disorder afflicts approximately 1% of prepubertal children typically between 2 to 7 years […]

An Introduction to EEG Phenotypes (Part 3)

Part 1 of this series provided a basic introduction to and a list of the 11 candidate electroencephalography (EEG) phenotypes, while Part 2 covered 5 of 11 EEG phenotypes. Part 3 details the remaining 6 EEG phenotypes with some final thoughts and a wrap up of this popular series. As detailed beforehand, the phenotypes and […]

An Introduction to EEG Phenotypes (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this series, I provided an introduction to and overview of the candidate EEG phenotypes as proposed by Johnstone, Gunkelman, & Lunt (2005). Readers may want to first view Part 1 to better understand the current discussion. Part 2 provides a detailed description of 5 of the 11 candidate EEG phenotypes along […]
