For the first time, the QEEG brain mapping device was introduced to the scientific community of our beloved country as well as the Middle East countries by the Farmed Tazeez working group as a useful and necessary method to follow up the treatment process in the field of neuroscience.
QEEG brain mapping device is a combination of hardware and software. For the hardware, an EEG device is needed that can record brain waves in compliance with the necessary standards. The software should also be able to perform the necessary processes to have an interpretable brain map.
QEEG device hardware
Model 201 of the Mitsar company in Russia is one of the best EEG brainwave recording devices, which has been able to present its products in the United States and obtain FDA approval. The reason for this superiority is the presence of necessary and practical options in the field of neuroscience and clinical uses based on it in the hardware and software of this company, which is supported by Professor Kropotov Rossi, one of the pioneers of this science.
High-quality recording of brain waves, various filters that can be applied offline, displaying and checking the resistance of electrodes before and even during recording, software with an easy-to-use interface, common assemblies and the possibility of adding a desired assembly are just some of the features of this device. Is. There is the ability to record 21 EEG channels along with 8 channels for ECG heart rate, EMG muscle tension, EOG eye movements and breathing in this device. In the new design of this device, its power is supplied using a USB port. It is also possible to connect to a computer using Bluetooth.
This device has the ability to record ERP or event-dependent potential along with the dedicated PsyTask cognitive task design software, and to process the recorded information, a wide range of facilities such as ERP, ERD/ERS and ERCoh easily and without advanced software such as Matlab is included in it. The possibility of group analysis of records and comparing before and after or several ERP indicators at the same time is one of its unique software features.
QEEG device software
NeuroGuide software, which has contributed the most in the therapeutic areas of using QEEG in the world, is used to provide a brain map. The most important advantage of Neuroguide as a QEEG software is to have a normal community database. Many software known as Brain Mapping simply analyze the waves and compare the obtained numbers with information from other points and other waves and display a set of color maps known as raw brain maps.
But in addition to providing these results, which cannot be extracted from much clinical information, Neuroguide software provides information that is used for differential diagnosis and to help choose the best treatment for clients by comparing the information with the normal population, which is categorized based on age and registration conditions. It helps a lot. In addition to clinical applications, Neuroguide software is also used for research work in the fields of neuroscience and cognitive science, sports science, rehabilitation, neuromarketing and other scientific fields related to brain knowledge.
American ECI hat set
To record brain waves or EEG, the ease of using a special cap compared to electrodes that require one-to-one connection speeds up the time required for recording. In this QEEG device package, the American ECI cap set in 3 different sizes is used, which is connected to the amplifier with a single cable and does not need to connect a single electrode. These caps have spare electrodes called Quick Insert, which can be replaced instantly if there is a problem with one of the points.
