We understand how devastating cognitive impairment can be. Neurological disorders are the leading cause of death and disability in the world today with about 1 in 7 people suffering from neurological disorders. These disorders severely disrupt lives and often lead to premature death. It is our responsibility to our contributors to conduct our research studies meticulously, thereby making the entire process and goals easily understood. We want you, the consumer, to know what our studies are about.

qEEG and swLORETA Brain Systems Study
This study is being designed to help improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosis of the Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), also known as ME/CFS. The study uses qEEG/swLORETA methods with 3-dimensional neuroimaging to evaluate the nature and extent of neurological symptoms patients. The primary aims of the study are 1) to assess the neuropsychological status of the participants with linkage of symptoms and behavior to functional systems in the brain and 2) ascertain how qEEG/swLORETA can provide valuable information for aiding practitioners in assessing clinical outcomes in ME/CFS. This study is currently in the planning stage and recruitment will begin pending IRB approval. The slideshow below shows examples of significant brain network dysregulation in a patient with ME/CFS.
