19 Channel Neurofeedback

What is 19 Channel Neurofeedback?

Unlike our normal one or two electrode neurofeedback training protocols, where we mainly concentrate on lowering the power in one specific region of the brain, 19 channel neurofeedback (also know as Z-score neurofeedback or “full cap” neurofeedback) can train up to 5700 variables at one time. 19 channel neurofeedback trains your brain using z-scores. This can be thought of as “real time” training where your brain is getting trained to be within normal limits as defined by a normative database in real time. 19 channel neurofeedback can train EEG coherence, phase delay, amplitude and power asymmetry, phase reset, phase lock and phase shift duration.

Z-Scores and Normative Databases

Z-Scores are statistical data which help us decipher whether or not an individuals brain is within normal limits as defined by a normative database. A normative database is a collection of data from the brains of hundreds of individuals thought to be of normal functioning in the same sex and age groups as the individual being treated. They tell us whether a particular score is equal to the average, below the average or above the average of what is expected from a “normal” working brain. They can also tell us how far a particular score is away from the average.

LORETA Neurofeedback

LORETA (Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography) neurofeedback is available at the clinic. LORETA neurofeedback is based on the work of Robert Thatcher, PhD. This approach is based on the data gathered from the Quantitative EEG (QEEG) and Dr. Thatcher’s QEEG database. It uses a mathematical process called the “inverse solution” to suggest what is happening in deep structures beneath the cortex. LORETA provides a 3-Dimensional source correlation of Brodman areas to a reference Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This allows the use of neurofeedback directly on deep brain areas such as the Cingulate Gyrus. The built in symptom checklist is combined with LORETA Z scores measured during a QEEG analysis to aid in linking a client’s symptoms to functional networks within the brain. It is of particular use for Traumatic Brain Injury, Migraines and Autism or for those clients with multiple diagnoses.

In our experience and as verified by research, Z score and LORETA Neurofeedback allow for symptom resolution to be attained in fewer sessions than traditional Neurofeedback employing only amplitude training.
