Course Category: QEEG

The Quantitative EEG Certification is a distinction that
indicates someone who has competency in the reading of electroencephalographic
data (EEG), as well as mastery of the quantification of that data (as seen in
brain maps). This online module is the 36-hour didactic course necessary for
final accreditation.

What this course includes:

Videos that demonstrate how to read EEG and QEEGsQuizzes and practice exams to test your knowledgeTough cases, like mood disorders, epilepsy, ADHD, etc.

Practice Exam

This practice exam prepares students for the type and difficulty of questions they can expect from the QEEG examination. 

Chapter 9: Practicum Including Artifact Detection (6 hours)

This chapter will be an interactive, hands-on segment
covering all types of artifact detection, including advanced interpretative
techniques to avoid misdiagnosis, T/F “real or fake” questions, matching EEG
with artifact, and multiple choice questions.

Chapter 4: Database Analysis (4.5 Hours)

This chapter will cover the inclusion and exclusion criteria
for normative databases, statistical considerations in databases, and basic
statistical analysis.

Chapter 6: Montages and Spectral and Topographic Aspects of the EEG (3 hrs)

This chapter will cover the use of various montages, the use
of power displays, and various transforms in the analysis of EEG. Additionally,
this chapter will cover generators and etiology of various rhythms and
frequency bands, as well as phase, coherence, and connectivity metrics in QEEG
analysis and interpretation.

Chapter 5: Clinical and Cognitive Aspects (6.5 Hours)

The Clinical and Cognitive aspects chapter will cover the
developmental EEG, the origins of the EEG, and EEG signatures to refer out
(e.g. epileptiform discharge, cerebro-vascular disorders, tumors, ischemias).
In addition, this module covers Brodmann area functions and network
connections, LORETA interpretation and training, the after effects of
neurofeedback, and clinical presentations as profiled in EEG.

Chapter 1: Recording and Editing Raw EEG and Artifact Detection (2 hours)

Recognizing artifact (false alterations of EEG data) is one
of the most essential skills in EEG analysis. This chapter will cover
artifacting etiquette to ensure the best possible recording, as well as the
identification of:

·        
Muscle artifact

·        
Eye blink and eye movement artifact

·        
Glossokinetic artifact

·        
Drowsiness artifact

·        
Sweat artifacts

·        
EKG and pulse artifacts

·        
Salt Bridge Artifacts

·        
Electrode and Equipment artifacts

·        
Environmental Noise artifacts

·        
Medication “artifacts”
