EEG predictors of neuropathic pain

A recent study looked at treating Central Neuropathic Pain using neurofeedback. Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) affects a person's ability to move and feel sensation in the body. SCI is also an indirect cause of Central Neuropathic Pain (CNP). This pain typically develops several months after the injury. In 30-40% of SCI patients, severe CNP affects their everyday living including sleep and mood. Many patients give up work, not because of the injury, but because of pain. Medical treatment of CNP is moderately effective and costly, both to the patient and to the health care system.

Choosing your NeXus for EEG measurement

We often are asked for "Everything I need to carry out EEG measurement or biofeedback". It sounds like a simple question but actually there are a number of aspects to this question (not least what budget you have) and a bit of thought will almost certainly lead to a more refined quote - and something much more relevant to the situation.

Quantitative EEG and normative databases

Electroencephalography (EEG) reflecting the ebb and flow of electrical energy from the brain has been in and out of fashion over the years.  It's complexity has meant that increasing interest has usually coincided with advances in hardware and software for processing it.  So called Quantified EEG (QEEG) processes the EEG signals in order to derive improved meaning. One approach which is become popular is to compare the EEG recorded from an individual with a database of norms. In this article we take look at the fundamentals of this approach
