Abstract: This 3-day course provides the foundation for understanding the importance of QEEG analysis of multi-channel EEG recordings including amplitude, power, relative power, coherence and LORETA (Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography) analysis for understanding basic brain function. This includes performing a relatively clean recording, providing hands-on practicums with state of the art equipment. It will demonstrate best practice for analysis, evaluation and reduction of artifacts and then finally using the data to develop neurofeedback protocols. This course will also discuss pertinent clinical and research findings and is accredited by the QEEG Certification Board as a didactic for certification applicants.

Advanced EEG and QEEG Topics With Jay Gunkelman

Instructor:

Jay Gunkelman, QEEGD | More about Jay HERE
 

This 2-day course will provide a foundation for understanding the importance of de-artifacting and montage on outcomes, including the evaluation of drowsiness/vigilance for understanding basic brain function. This includes the impact of current modeling approaches such as phenotypes and vigilance modeling, and also the impact of these models on medication selection in psychiatry.

Registration fee from $300 to $895

Dates and Locations:

  • April 29 & 30 | Atlanta, GA, USA (at SABA) | (Completed)
  • October 12-13 | Denver, CO, USA (before ISNR) | More info and registration HERE

 

Advanced EEG and QEEG Topics With Joel Lubar

Instructor:

Joel Lubar, PhD | More about Dr. Lubar HERE

 

This 2-day workshop is for the intermediate or advanced NeuroGuide Symptom Check List (SCL) and NFTools’ LORETA Progress report user. These tools, which match symptoms to brain behavior, have evolved to provide excellent training guidelines. Dr. Lubar will provide background and fundamental knowledge on EEG, QEEG, Brodmann areas, networks and LORETA, demonstrate this model and provide guidance through the SCL and Fusion processes.

Registration fee from $445 to $895

Dates and Locations:

  • September 3 & 4 | San Francisco Area (San Rafael), CA, USA

 

Reading the Raw EEG: Analysis and Interpretation 1/2 day

Instructor:

Jay Gunkelman, QEEGD | More about Jay HERE

 

This half-day course will provide a mechanism for acguiring understanding of the visual EEG as it reflects basic brain function/dysfunction. This includes review of multi-channel EEGs, evaluating and reducing artifacts and using the EEG and some simple spertral processing to develop neurofeedback protocols, propose medication matches and to show that the source of the quantitative features is actually the raw waveform's morphology, which is how the QEEG is actually validated: against the classical raw EEG, which remains the gold standard.

  • May 1 (at SABA) | Atlanta, GA, USA | (Completed)

 

Reading the Raw EEG: Analysis and Interpretation 1 day

Instructor:

Jay Gunkelman, QEEGD | More about Jay HERE

 

This one-day course will provide a mechanism for acquiring understanding of the visual EEG as it reflects basic brain function/dysfunction. This includes review of multi-channel EEGs, evaluating and reducing artifacts and using the EEG and some simple spertral processing to develop neurofeedback protocols, propose medication matches and to show that the source of the quantitative features is actually the raw waveform's morphology, which is how the QEEG is actually validated: against the classical raw EEG, which remains the gold standard.

    This course provides the accredited 48 hours for BCIA didactic. It will cover instrumentation and train on state of the art equipment. It is a 4-day F2F course with 17.5 hours of self-paced pre-course learning. It is required that the 17.5 hours are taken within the 30 days prior to the F2F instruction. The full course covers treatment protocols, history of biofeedback and operant conditioning, ethical considerations and basic psychophysiology science. This course is essential training for anyone who wishes to incorporate applied psychophysiology into his or her practice.

    TESTIMONIALS FROM REPORT USERS AND COURSE ATTENDEES:

     

    "What an honor and privilege to be taught QEEG and LORETA by two of the most recognized and respected people in the field of EEG; Joel Lubar, PhD and Jay Gunkleman, QEEGD. BSI's small class size, coupled with hands on experience gave us real insight into the mechanics of using QEEG with clients. I now feel ready to go forward by incorporating these techniques into my practice."

    "To date I’ve done over 300 Qs with BSI and compared to other services I’ve used, their reports are far superior and Jay is always available for discussion of each case. I have learned so much from Jay by discussing these cases with him."

    - - - RJS, PhD, LCSW, BCB, BCN, Houston, TX

     

    "I have found BSI's recorded webinars as an excellent resource to improve my neurfoeedback skill sets. BSI's webinars provide user-friendly access to leading applied and research experts within neurofeedback. In addition, my graduate students have purchased recorded webinar sessions; they reported this resource reduces the complexity of neurofeedback through cohesive and comprehensive trainings related to neurofeedback."

    "Dr. Kerson is an excellent teacher and neurofeedback supervisor. She provides a warm and caring approach to learning the process as well as the content - even when it is difficult to understand. She has a great sense of humor, and makes the learning interactive and fun. More importantly, she really cares about her students and takes the time to be sure everyone is succeeding."
