Clinical Neurotherapy: Chapter Eight. Diagnosing and Treating Closed Head Injury: Exposing and Defeating the Mild Huge MonsterOne of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide is brain injury. Most cases are mild, and the prevalence of disability and its impact are not well known. In the last 20 years neuroimaging technologies have changed the way we approach traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially mild injury (MTBI), and its sequelae. New treatment tools have been emerging in parallel with diagnostic technologies. Here, these noninvasive tools will be reviewed, especially those with therapeutic value that h…

Clinical Neurotherapy: Chapter Thirteen. Diagnosing and Treating Developmental Disorders with qEEG and NeurotherapyDevelopmental disorders cover vast, often overlapping diagnostic territories. Originating in childhood, many of these disorders continue to produce symptoms and functional difficulties throughout the individual’s life. Some developmental disorders have strong genetic components; others are of unknown etiology. Two of the most important are disorders of attention and seizure disorders, which are covered in separate chapters. This chapter focuses on autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabi…

Clinical Neurotherapy: Chapter Nine. Treating Thought DisordersThought disorders are one of the more debilitating of psychiatric disorders, and one of the more difficult to treat. The results of neuroimaging studies using EEG, qEEG, LORETA or VARETA with thought disorders will be discussed. The utility of electrophysiological methods in differential diagnosis and treatment will be discussed in detail. This chapter explores the use of various brain-based treatment modalities and technologies for the treatment of thought disorders. Neurofeedback, cranial elec…

Clinical Neurotherapy: Chapter Twelve. Neurofeedback for Seizure Disorders: Origins, Mechanisms and Best PracticesThis review provides an updated overview of both basic and clinical research literature, neurophysiological rationale and current methods of practice pertaining to clinical neurofeedback. While considering general issues of physiology, epilepsy and learning principles, it focuses on the treatment of epilepsy with sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) training, arguably the best established clinical application of EEG operant conditioning. The basic research literature provides ample data to support a very d…

Clinical Neurotherapy: Chapter Eleven. Treating Addiction DisordersSubstance use disorders (SUDs) are among the most common psychiatric conditions, resulting in serious behavioral impairments and cognition decline. Acute and chronic drug abuse, drug dependency and drug withdrawal result in significant alteration of the electroencephalogram (EEG). EEG biofeedback has been used in the treatment of alcohol and mixed substance abuse in residential inpatient populations. More recent outpatient approaches have used quantitative EEG (qEEG) guided neurofeedback, neurof…
