Dr. Rogene M. Eichler West, Ph.D., QEEGD is a clinical neuroscientist, scientist, educator, and technologist. Her primary specialization is in the interpretation of brain function using traditional raw waveform analysis, normative databases, and quantitative algorithms. She is International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB) Board Certified in QEEG at the Diplomate level. She has served as an expert witness in forensic cases involving the interpretation of brain maps concerning traumatic brain injuries and mental health status. She provides consultations and continuing education to clinicians, including mentoring for IQCB board certification.

Dr. West is currently a Principal at Northwest Neuro Professionals, LLC, where she offers functional brain consulting to attorneys and clinicians requiring expert services. She is a co-founder of REWIRE, a state-of-the-art performance training system specifically designed to unlock the body’s physical and cognitive potential. She is also a Chief Scientific Advisor for Myneurva, a Cloud-Based Machine Learning System for Neuropsychiatric Diagnosis and Treatment.

Dr. West received her Doctorate in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota, where the neurophysiological portion of her training was through the medical school and the computational portion was through the Institute of Technology (Minnesota Supercomputer Institute). A portion of her laboratory rounds included in-vivo electrophysiological recordings from the pre-motor cortex of primates and in vitro electrophysiological recordings from rodent hippocampal slices. Her dissertation and subsequent postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology and the University of Antwerp, Belgium concerned the use of machine learning and mathematical algorithms to predict the electrochemical signaling behavior of neurons. 

Dr. West’s training in EEG/QEEG includes a six-month neurology residency focused on EEG through the Neurological Association of South Africa in collaboration with the University of Cape Town. She has been a participant in the bi-monthly QEEG grand rounds with world expert, Jay Gunkelman, since 2016. She co-facilitated a five-month study program on the collection and interpretation of ERPs with world expert Professor Dr. Juri Kropotov, with the curriculum to be delivered in the spring of 2021. She has studied EEG through Bellevue College’s Neurodiagnostic Technology program, the Neurodiagnostic Society (ASET), and didactics through Stress Therapy Solutions, New Mind Academy, the Behavioral Medicine Research and Training Foundation.

She was previously a founding partner at Brain Health Northwest, LLC., a clinical psychology/neuroscience firm in Seattle Washington that specialized in the use of quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG)-based functional brain assessments and neurotherapies such as neurofeedback for the treatment of brain/mental health issues, in addition to standard psychological assessment and treatment approaches. While at BHNW, she practiced under WA State DOH CL60528100.

She is a member of the EEG & Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS), the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR), and the Neurodiagnostic Society (ASET). For two years, she served as the chair of ISNR’s educational committee, where she moderated their monthly webinar series as well as their listserv. She also offered study groups and mentoring for Biofeedback Certification International Alliance’s (BCIA) Board Certification in Neurofeedback.

 

She is currently only available for QEEG mentoring.
