The Slow Cortical Potential System includes everything you need to incorporate SCP training into your practice. The SCP Suite uses Thought Technology’s ProComp5 or ProComp Infiniti, the EEG-Z3 & EEG-Z sensors, TT-A/V Sync, the highly accurate audiovisual time-synchronizing device. The new Slow Cortical Potential Neurofeedback System provides a simple way of integrating state-of-the-art SCP training clinically.
Reliably extracting Slow Cortical Potentials from raw EEG is a complex science. Each event-triggered SCP must be measured with millisecond accuracy & properly controlled for artifacts. Anything less is simply unreliable. Using state-of-the-art technology, the SCP Suite ensures that recorded SCPs are of the highest quality.
The SCP Suite teaches self-regulation of Slow Cortical Potentials in both directions enabling learning of activation as well as inhibition of overall neural activity. The SCP Suite’s fully-automated & bidirectional protocols will empower your clients to gain confident control over their general brain state.
With each session of the program, print out your client’s detailed report to review their progress, each and every step of the way.
Slow Cortical Potentials,or SCPs,are very slow, event-related shifts of the EEG. Unlike the spontaneous, oscillatory activity of higher frequency brain waves traditionally used in Neurofeedback (e.g. Delta, Theta, Alpha & Beta), SCPs are in the range of 0-1 Hz, with 0Hz representing the DC baseline of the EEG signal. SCPs are best captured using protocols comprising discrete, time-locked events, with measurements of low frequency EEG initiated by an external stimulus such as a tone or visual presentation, and lasting up to 8 seconds. While the actual physiological source of SCPs is still a topic of debate, they are considered to be a consequence of synchronous activity of large cell assemblies which are responsible for the initiation of goal directed behavior. The clinical program on which the SCP Suite is based describes a three-phase protocol used to teach clients to voluntarily increase or decrease cortical potentials1,2. It has been demonstrated that negative shifts of potential represent cortical activation and positive shifts represent cortical inhibition. Cortical activation is related to an increase of physiological resource allocation and favors such processes as attention and cognitive function. Cortical inhibition, on the other hand, is linked to the reduction of cortical excitation, leading to a calming of mental processes. In general, training to voluntarily generate negative or positive shifts of SCP levels helps your clients by improving their self-regulation capabilities.
The SCP Suite(SA7985) was designed based on the original SCP research from the University of Tubingen, Germany. Inspired by the work of Ute Strehl & Neils Birbaumer on clinical SCP1,2, it includes everything you need for SCP (Slow Cortical Potential) training. Positive and negative SCPs are trained consecutively in a fully automated scripted session. The feedback includes carefully selected animations, which provide pleasing instructions & feedback on the SCP required. The suite also takes advantage of the full power of BioGraph Infiniti, by using Quick Start favorites, which allow you to start a scripted session and review, report and analyze statistics with the click of a single button or even a desktop shortcut.
