Enhancing Neurotherapy with Phenotypes with Jay Gunkelman, QEEG-D



Phenotypes can be a valuable tool for clinicians, helping them to predict and better understand a client’s response to therapy, neurofeedback and medication.

  • Learn how to utilize electroencephalography (EEG) phenotypes as an intermediate step between genetics and behavior.
  • Discover a distinguishing toolset beyond the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
  • Develop custom protocols for neurotherapy and other modalities.

In this lecture, participants will learn:

  • Identify subtypes of specific disorders to increase their ability to understand an individual’s response to therapy, and which can be applied to develop customized therapeutic solutions.
  • Learn the framework that allows for a precise classification observed EEG variances with a small number of phenotypical categories.

Jay Gunkelman, QEEG Diplomate, is recognized as one of the top leaders in the field of EEG and QEEG, and has processed over 500,000 EEGs since 1972. He has served as president of The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research, as well as a board member and treasurer of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback and is a past-president of the Biofeedback Society of California. Jay was the first EEG technologist to be certified in QEEG (1996) and was granted Diplomate status in 2002. He has conducted, published or participated in hundreds of research papers, articles, books and meetings internationally. He has co-authored the textbook on EEG artifacting (2001). Jay remains busy with current projects and publications related to his seminal paper on EEG endophenotypes (2005, Clinical Electroencephalography). He is co-founder and Chief Science Officer of Brain Science International and is a popular lecturer worldwide on the topic of QEEG and phenotype identification of neurological disorders.
