EEG-Biofeedback and Epilepsy: Concept, Methodology and Tools for (Neuro)therapy Planning and Objective Evaluation (2005)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Objective diagnosis and therapy evaluation are still challenging tasks for many neurological disorders. This is highly related to the diversity of cases and the variety of treatment modalities available. Especially in the case of epilepsy, which is a complex disorder not well-explained at the biochemical and physiological levels, there is the need for investigations for novel features, which can be extracted and quantified from electrophysiological signals in clinical practice. Neurotherapy is a complementary treatment applied in various disorders of the central nervous system, including epilepsy. The method is subsumed under behavioral medicine and is considered an operant conditioning in psychological terms. Although the application areas of this promising unconventional approach are rapidly increasing, the method ... toggle 15 keywordseeg-biofeedback – epilepsy – neurotherapy – slow cortical potentials – objective diagnosis – therapy evaluation – epileptic pattern quantification – fractal dimension – contingent negative variation – hyperventilation – dc-shifts – instantaneous heart rate – neuroprofile – database system – synergetics
