NeuroGuide Deluxe allows you to import previously recorded EEG data, clean and analyze data, as well as process the data into maps and necessary statistics. This will help you get a clear picture of the overall functioning of a person's brain and aid in the creation of personalized training protocols.
Built from 625 normative comparisons of relative power, absolute power, power ratios, coherence, and phase and amplitude asymmetry, NeuroGuide Deluxe is the most informative and comprehensive Conventional EEG and QEEG analysis system available.
Simple to use Windows functions provide for Automatic Artifact Rejection, Dynamic FFTs with comparisons to FFT lifespan, and Eyes Open and Eyes Closed Norms covering ages from birth to 82 years of age. NeuroGuide includes TBI & LD discriminant functions, as well as an integrated statistical package. It also includes predictions of neuropsychological test scores using the Brain Performance Index.
NeuroGuide is a Tool Set that a Clinician or Researcher can apply to help link symptoms and behavior to functional networks in the brain. One of the tools is EEG Neuroimaging to evaluate Brodmann Areas and nodes and connections of functional networks in the brain likely linked to symptoms, statically or in real-time.
NeuroGuide provides a retrospective view of EEG waveforms and offline artifact rejection. NeuroGuide also offers calculations of Spectral Energy, Power and Coherence along with discriminant Functions, Signal Generator, LORETA Norms, and Brain Performance Index (QEEG Information).
NeuroGuide uses a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) with .5Hz and 1Hz resolution to provide color headmaps with a bandwidth of 0-40Hz, a Joint-Time-Frequency Analysis component to identify time events greater or less than a threshold value, as well as LORETA analysis. All of this over 19 channels of incoming information, offering flexibility in montage selection and easy exporting into other programs, making this a remarkable, versatile, in-depth tool.
Review different EEG file formats. Create SnapShots of interesting records for review by colleagues. Highlight asymmetries and slowing with side-by-side FFTs and Topographs. Simplify your clinical reports with integrated report generation. Quickly review your long-term records with high-speed visual playback. Compare electrographic and clinical signs with synchronized video. Reduce data storage requirements by archiving interesting or periodic sections of EEG and video. Remove eyeblink or EKG artifacts with automatic artifact rejection methods. Localize spikes with Cursor Analysis and Voltage Plots. Localize seizures with FFT or Matching Pursuit spectrograms or LORETA. Choose 10-20, 10-10 or custom electrode maps up to 128 channels.
NeuroGuide is a powerful tool for many disciplines: neurologists, epileptologist, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurotherapists, neuropsychologists, clinician and researchers. The NeuroGuide Analysis software is to be used by qualified medical or clinical professionals for the statistical evaluation of the human electroencephalogram (EEG). For research and education, NeuroGuide is intended to be used by competent and ethical students and professionals for the statistical evaluation of the human electroencephalogram (EEG).

Manuals and Data Sheets
The NeuroGuide 1.8.x series marks the last free update for those who have purchased NeuroGuide more than one year ago. Because of the expense to continually upgrade NeuroGuide it is now necessary to charge a $600/year Upgrade Subscription to all users of NeuroGuide who want to receive updates beyond the initial version that they purchased. The policy of Applied Neuroscience, Inc. remains in which a primary single user’s license is issued and a free and renewable second license is issued in instances where a single-user wants to run NeuroGuide on a laptop at home and a desktop at work, etc. However, there will now be a 50% charge of full price including add ons for a 3rd license to the same single user and the full price will be charged for a 4th license.
The NeuroGuide add ons such as NeuroStat, NeuroBatch, Discriminant Functions, LORETA norms and the Brain Performance Index are integrated within NeuroGuide. This means that future upgrades of the add ons will require joining the upgrade subscription service at a charge of $600/year.
