Identification of Neuromarkers for assessment and neuromodulation for treatment
Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are complicated pervasive disorders that have both overlapping and different symptom profiles. Further, each patient presents with a unique set of symptoms which highlights the need for individualized treatment. In addition to established assessment and treatments, using neuropsychological (NP) and quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) profiling can help generate an individualized approach to assess and subsequently treat these disorders. This presentation will identify various NP and QEEG profiles specific to MTBI and PTSD, and then present how neuromodulation modalities such as neurofeedback and computerized training may help these populations improve functioning.
