EEG endophenotypes and EEG Neuromarkers in Trauma
with jay gunkelman
Live Webinar Outline
EEG endophenotypes are genetically linked characteristics that group people in clusters that respond to similar interventions. Trauma can occur in any of these clusters. Trauma seen in the various forms of PTSD creates brain function reactions that can be seen as an EEG phenomenon. Some of these brain reactions are common, such as Lambda, as well as an excessive resting-state right parietal/temporal alpha, seen due to ‘gating’ in cortical areas that process affect. In this brief presentation, selected EEG cases will be used to illustrate these brain neuromarkers.
Jay Gunkelman, QEEG Diplomate Emeritus, 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.
