19 Channel Z-Score sLORETA Training
This type of training requires wearing a QEEG cap with 19 sensors or channels. Using a full 19 sensor array, we create a 3-D functional map of the brain, enabling us to train any number of surface or deep brain areas all at once. We can train entire networks (brain highways), coherence (connectivity), processing speed (phase) and more; all crucial factors in optimum brain functioning.
Z-Scores are statistical data which help us determine how your brain performs compared to what has been established as “normal.” A normative database is a collection of data from the brains of thousands of individuals thought to be of normal functioning in the same sex and age groups as you. This tells us if you are average, high, or low in certain frequencies compared to the norm. It can be seen as training into a balanced or comfortable brain state. Your brain is getting trained to be within normal limits as defined by a normative database in real time. It allows for training amplitude and power, EEG coherence, and phase variables.
LORETA 3D Neurofeedback
LORETA (Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography) is based on the work of Robert Thatcher, Ph.D. and utilizes his QEEG database. LORETA provides a 3-Dimensional suggested source correlation of deep structures beneath the cortex known as Brodman areas. This allows the use of neurofeedback directly to train deep brain areas such as the Anterior Cingulate Gyrus. We link your symptoms to functional networks within the brain using LORETA Z-scores measured during a QEEG analysis to focus on the area deep in the brain with the most damage in real time.
Coben Coherence Training
Coben Coherence training protocols are published in peer reviewed journals and are quickly becoming the gold standard in improving the unique brain patterns in learning disorders and autism spectrum disorders. Neuropsychologist Robert Coben, Ph.D. provides consulting services to the office when needed to achieve the best results for some of clients.
Robert Coben, Ph.D. is currently the President of the International Society for Neurofeedback (ISNR) and Research and President Elect of the International Board of Quantitative Electrophysiology. He received his doctoral degree in 1991 and has been a licensed psychologist in the state of New York since 1994. His research interests include the study of Neuropsychology and Neurophysiology in the understanding of childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, especially autism, and treatment applications for the same.
