Brain-based Assessment in Mental Health:

QEEG & ERP Didactic Courses

(Introductory to Intermediate level)

VENUE: Bond University, Robina, Queensland, Australia

Date: 24 – 29 November 2019 


Brought to you by 

Mind Science and My Health


in collaboration with world renowned neuroscientist

Prof. Yury Kropotov 


Quantitative EEG (QEEG) and evoked, or event-related, potentials (ERPs) are valuable tools for supporting the diagnosis and targeted therapy of mental disorders. Learn how to use biomarkers to classify brain disorders and to enable a more personalized treatment. Learn about methods of neurotherapy for influencing brain disorders.

Make a more precise diagnosis and treat your patients more effectively!

Our basic course gives an introduction to recording and analysis of a quantitative EEG (QEEG) as well as evoked potentials (ERP) and is intended for newcomers in these fields.  During the extensive practicum you will have the opportunity to record and analyse your own EEGs and ERPs as well as analyse various clinical cases. We supply all equipment for working in groups of two persons.

Health Practitioners who will benefit from this: Neurologists, psychiatrists, child- and adolescent psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, psychotherapists, MDs, pediatricians, occupational therapists, Neurofeedback therapists, school psychologists.

       

     

    Mind, Science & My Health (MSMH) has developed flexible training options toward completion of Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) Didactic Training which is required for those seek preparation toward QEEG Certification through IQCB* .

       *The International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB) was established to certify the competence of individuals in obtaining and interpreting a Quantitative Electroencephalograph (QEEG). In addition to a minimum of 10 hours of mentoring and passing the IQCB examination in QEEG, candidates must complete a 36-hour QEEG Didactic Training course.


       About the course presenters

      Professor Juri Kropotov is a world-renowned neuroscientist and a leading expert in the basic and applied neuroscience. The unique methodology developed in his labs at the Human Brain Institute in St Petersburg (Russia) allows a sophisticated analysis of brain electric activity in resting states and under task conditions. The methodology is described in his book Kropotov, J.D. (2009). Quantitative EEG, event-related potentials and neurotherapy. London: Academic Press. These precise measurements of brain function can be used as Neuromarkers in the clinical context to evaluate brain health in different psychiatric and neurological disorders. The experience of translating this methodology into clinical practice is presented in his recently published book Kropotov, J. D. (2016). Functional neuromarkers for psychiatry: Applications for diagnosis and treatment. San Diego, CA, US: Elsevier Academic Press. Juri’s workshops are totally unique: the workshop will give you theoretical and practical experience of how to measure and analyse QEEG and ERPs using Human Brain Index Database with most advanced software tools available. Learning to use Neuromarkers is essential for psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, forensic and criminology experts, brain researchers and anyone involved in brain training and neuromodulation.
