Learning Disabilities & Traumatic Brain Injury Discriminant Functions for NeuroGuide
Pattern recognition programs to provide a probability of the detection of a pattern in the EEG that is commonly present in clinically defined individuals, such as mild traumatic brain injured patients and learning disabled children.
Please note that only EEG recorded using a linked ears reference is to be used with the discriminant functions.Some amplifier systems such as the Mitsar, Nicolet and Neuroscan/NuAmp/Synamp amplifiers are not to be used to evaluate the discriminant functions.
Also, other constraints such as age must be adhered to as well as a history of learning disabilities or a history of mild traumatic brain injury. The TBI discriminant function is not designed to detect moderate to severe TBI, only individuals with a history of mild TBI should be evaluated with the TBI discriminant function. Discriminant functions are not to be used for purposes of diagnosis, but rather to confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis and to more deeply explore which aspects of brain function may be contributing to a patient's symptoms and complaints. Under FDA filings only competent and qualified individuals are to use NeuroGuide and the discriminant functions.
