qEEG, LORETA, source analysis, eLORETA

I am interested in the cognitive neuroscience of infectious disease and, more broadly, the cognitive neuroscience of medical problems which are associated with neurocognitive problems. My primary research area is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), looking at how neurological conditions in CFS relate to disruptions in cognition, consciousness and motor behavior. More recently, the brain is seen as dynamic, requiring constant input from all sources to produce output. The limitation of fMRI is the fact that one second is extremely slow for the brain. Instead, we prefer to examine the brain in milliseconds, something which only qEEG can accomplish. Our current research interest is to ascertain the clinical and scientific utility of EEG measurement for diagnosis and understanding of the etiology of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so as to link symptoms and behavior to functional systems in the brain. We explore network dynamics (phase shift, phase lock and phase reset) of 3-dimensional current sources of the Brodmann areas located in the human default mode network (DMN), salience network (SN) and attention networks (AN) using exact Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography (eLORETA) of the human electroencephalogram (EEG).

I sincerely apologize that we have a long-standing and unresolved problem that users are unable to modify the database contents using their logins and passwords. I hope that we can fix this problem soon. In the meantime, I will try to do this manually as best I can.
