2018 Napa Getaway: 2-Day QEEG Workshop

May 18 & 19
8:30-5:30

 

Abstract: Certified in QEEG and/or BCN or working towards certification, this course, which takes EEG interpretation to the next level, is for you. Cynthia and Jay will explore EEG biomarkers, artifacting models, new databases, and case interpretation. In the field of neuromodulation, it’s hard to keep up with new trends. This course bridges what you need to know for certification with what you’ll want to know to improve your clinical skills. Bring your equipment, your cases and your open mind.

Instructors:

Cynthia Kerson, PhD, QEEGD, BCN, BCB Cynthia Kerson is the founder, COO and director of education for APEd.

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 continues to lecture on EEG/QEEG at neuroscience meetings worldwide. 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.
