Michael Linden, Ph.D. QEEG and Neurofeedback for Detection, Treatment and Management of TBI with Individuals and Athletes Level: Intermediate Saturday, Nov. 5th 1 hour Recently, football players have been developing dementia and CTE from repeated head injuries. There is urgency for more precise and accurate methods for assessing concussions, TBI and Dementia in athletes. Research is demonstrating QEEG can be sensitive for diagnosis and treatment monitoring. Neurofeedback can be an effective treatment for concussions and head injuries in athletes of all ages. Neurofeedback has been used for many years in numerous sports to decrease the symptoms of concussions and TBI. Budzinsky studied the effects of older adults with Dementia and termed it “Brain Brightening” and Palmquist recently repli- cated the results. Ultra Pulse Low Voltage Stimulation is currently being studied with retired NFL players with Dementia and showing promising results. Neurofeedback for concussions/TBI can be individualized and lead to not only quicker return to play, but emotional, cognitive and memory improvements.
