EEG Training History
EEG Observations: High amplitude low frequency; bursts of rhythmic theta. Training effected disappearance of delta and slow waves, reduction in incidence of rhythmic theta activity. Not much change in theta threshold
STATUS: EEG Training interrupted at Session 33 for Re-test: All above reported symptoms improved; fatigue, headache still a problem. Significant improvement in verbal IQ; yet training was mostly on RIGHT Hemisphere.
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Revised (WISC-R)
Verbal IQ: Prior to training = 124 After training = 142

EEG training was conducted with EEG Spectrum’s standard Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) protocols of augmentation in either the sensorimotor rhythm (SMR, 12-15 Hz) spectral band, or the low beta (15-18 Hz) spectral band, concurrently with inhibition of excessive activity in the 4-7 Hz band and the 22-30 Hz band, typically at sensorimotor cortex (Cz, C3, and C4). Each training sessions consisted of 30 minutes on a Neurocybernetics instrument.
