Cutting-edge information on databases for research and clinical practice in neuropathy!
Quantitative Electroencephalographic Analysis (QEEG) Databases for Neurotherapy: Description, Validation, and Application examines the strengths and limitations of QEEG databases as a tool for the diagnosis of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This book is written by experts who have had considerable experience in either the development of databases or in working with them. This text can improve your ability to fine-tune existing protocols and develop new ones leading to better treatment, better long-term outcome, and fewer training sessions.
Quantitative Electroencephalographic Analysis (QEEG) Databases for Neurotherapy can help you differentiate cognitive states, clinical disorders, and EEG changes throughout the lifespan of a patient. This book also reveals the latest technological developments and methodological practices, and comparisons are made between EEG databases to help you determine what is best for your needs. Several controversies involving quantitative EEGs are discussed, including ethical concerns and early criticisms against the use of these methods for diagnostic purposes.
This book addresses important topics such as:
- the development of methodology for estimating the deviance from the database norms to determine abnormal brain functioning
- the most widely used QEEG databasestheir construction and application as well as a comparison and contrast of their features
- the creation of a universal set of standards for determining which database is suitable for a researcher’s or practitioner’s needs
- the use of quantitative EEG and normative databases for clinical purposesethical concerns, advantages and limitations, and the proposal for a new clinical approach for neurotherapy
- the comparison of QEEG reference databases in analysis and in the evaluation of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

What People are Saying About This
OUTSTANDING ... Dr. Lubar is the most respected neuroscientist and
clinician in the field of QEEG and neurofeedback ... All those doing
research and clinical work with QEEG Topographic Brainmaps need to
understand the building blocks of these databases and analysis systems, how
they work, how they were constructed, and how to understand their strengths
and weaknesses. Now, for the first time and in one place, we can master
this vitally important information. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
MSW, DCSW, BCIA:EEG, QEEG/Diplomate, Past President, International Society of Neuronal Regulation; President, EEG Division, Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ... A comprehensive compilation of cutting-edge
chapters on QEEG databases, providing a critical evaluation of both the
databases and the issues involved in their use for assessment in
neurofeedback. There are high-quality scholarly chapters, comparative
details about—and color maps from—the different databases, and ideas about
how to practically integrate QEEG findings into a clinical approach.
