  • An event-related potential (ERP) is an electrical response of the brain to a specific event. It is measured by the same amplifiers as a conventional multi-channel EEG but records brain activity during task performance, i.e., sequential presentation of stimuli (visual, auditory) and response to stimuli (pressing a button, verbal response). The ERP analysis software corrects for artifacts, samples the recorded EEG into stimulus (or response)-locked segments, averages the segments to obtain raw ERPs, separates them into latent components by blind source separation techniques, and compares the components with the corresponding ones in healthy controls in and different psychiatric conditions (ADHD, autism, depression, schizophrenia, OCD, etc). Each of the components is associated with a specific psychological operation (such as stimulus detection, stimulus recognition, working memory, conflict detection, action initiation, action inhibition) which may be specifically or non-specifically impaired in a certain psychiatric condition. There are reasons to add ERPs into your clinical practice:
    • ERPs show superior diagnostic power in comparison to QEEG. Many ERP components demonstrate high effect sizes for discriminating a patient group from healthy controls. The number of papers exploring ERPs for diagnosis is 10 times larger than that of QEEG papers.
    • ERP technique provides behavioural information such as reaction time and its variability, omission and commission errors. For example, one can differentiate behavioural pattern of the inattentive ADHD subtype.
    • ERPs indicate the specific operations which are impaired in a patient thus providing crucial information for electrode location of neurofeedback, tDCS and TMS techniques. For example, one can define what part (temporal-parietal or frontal) of the cognitive control system is impaired in ADHD.
    • ERPs also predict a response of the patient to medication. For example, measuring the ERPs before and after application of one dose of Ritalin one can define if the patient will respond to psychostimulant

Brain-based Assessment in Mental Health

QEEG & ERPs training course


STEP I.  Build your knowledge base in Event Related Potentials application in clinical practice

In these 1-hour webinars, Professor Kropotov will review the methods for ERPs recording, the approaches of extracting latent components, discuss advantages and disadvantages of different ERP databases, and describe cases of different psychiatric conditions. There are 7 webinars in total. The first is FREE TO REGISTER and will provide an introductory overview of ERPs, their association with stages of information processing and their importance in clinical practice. The subsequent six webinars will address: ADHD, ASD, Schizophrenia, OCD, Alzheimer’s Disease and Peak Performance.

You may register for each topic independently or purchase the series as a 6-pack.

STEP II. Develop Clinical Understanding 

At this stage, you may choose to access a QEEG and/or ERPs Analysis Service. Either collect the QEEG & ERP data independently and send the data for analysis and recommendations or send your clients to one of our trained service providers for their QEEG/ERP study to be completed. You may then choose a live consultation with Professor Juri Kropotov to discuss the findings or choose to receive a written report or access both the written report and live consult with Juri.

STEP III.  Develop EEG and ERP Assessment Capacity

Michelle Aniftos, QEEG Diplomat,offers you a QEEG and ERP course that requires seven core modules to be completed by distance education (including webinar tutorial sessions) and followed by a 2-day or 3-day practicum to complete an IQCB-accredited 36-hour QEEG Didactic Course.


STEP IV.   Develop ERP Analysis and Reporting Competencies

At this stage, you are ready for face-to-face training with Professor Yuri Kropotov who will visit Australia in September 2020 to teach his 4-day ERP Analysis Workshop in Melbourne.

STEP V. Ongoing Professional Supervision & Technical Support

a) Having completed an accredited 36-hour QEEG Didactic Course, delegates pursuing IQCB QEEG Certification need to submit 5 case presentations to an approved QEEG-D Mentor, a total of 10 contact hours in mentoring, and successfully complete the Board Examination to attain QEEG Certification.

b) Similarly, to complete ERP Analysis Certificate, you will need to have 10 hours of case supervision for your skills' development.
