This talk looks at neurobiological development and EEG in instances of abuse and neglect, relative to healthy upbringing. Both nature and nurture, or lack thereof, create the human brain as it evolves through early life.
There are an estimated half million new cases of prolonged post-concussion syndrome in the US each year. Neurotherapists are well positioned to assist in the assessment and recovery of these individuals. This workshop will cover the acute and long term pathophysiologic changes in mild traumatic brain injuries, the electroencephalographic correlates, and treatment strategies in pediatric and adult cases.
Alexandra will share the dynamics of symptom reduction and self-knowledge as they occurred for each person. The Brief Affective Neuroscience Personality Scale will be discussed. Genetics as a biomarker to predict response to neurostimulation will be discussed.
Referenced information on the metabolic underpinnings of EEG abnormalities from diminished levels of certain essential nutrients, particularly in the mitochondria, that may be addressed with either stimulus interventions, nutraceutical supplementation or the combination of both.
NeuroDesigner is a piece of computational neurological software that does not make decisions for you, the clinician, but rather helps you organize and highlight representative information to help you more confidently create treatment strategies for your clients.
This final panel is a chance for all conference attendees to ask any burning questions they might have to a panel of seasoned clinicians about protocol selection, treatment of certain disorders, clinician hang-ups, grey areas, and regions of interest needing further exploration and explanation.
Presented by Nick Dogris, Tiff Thompson, Allison Hartzoge, Merlyn Hurd and Rob Lenzie
Physical health or ill health has a huge impact on thought, mood, cognitive function. Even a rudimentary understanding of the Chinese meridian system will offer valuable clinical improvement when applying Neurofield stim protocols.
The research being done now is more oriented to biological measurements. The endophenotype model of categorization based on genetically linked characteristics is offered as an alternative. Predictive validity of this approach will be evaluated.
