This issue has provided a series of demonstrations of the potential power of QEEG in guiding neurofeedback protocols for a variety of clinical situations. In each case, the authors have attempted to show the value of QEEG when compared to approaches based upon symptoms or general guidelines. The brain is a complex system, and a given set of symptoms may become manifest for any of a wide range of reasons. By focusing on the functional underpinnings of the clinical presentation, QEEG may empower practitioners to assess and target fundamental and specific mechanisms, in a manner that cannot be replicated with any other approach.

The EEG has been found to provide a means for the identification of candidate medications, and this is also due to its ability to elucidate underlying functional activity in contrast to using gross symptomatology. Its potential power both to recommend neurofeedback protocols, as well as pharmaceutical options, suggests that the information it provides can be more s ...
