“COVID changed a lot of things, and there were tough decisions that were made this year,” said Connie Kubiak, President of ASET-The Neurodiagnostic Society. Kubiak will end her term as ASET president this summer.
Can psychopathy be 'seen' on EEG? Using neurofeedback, can some of the negative qualities associated with psychopathy be changed? A new study contributes to science’s aim to find 'biological signatures' of mental illness.
“Of all the labs I've worked in. I've never worked in one where there has been a formal policy written about when to do the EEG in regards to dialysis,” says Petra Davidson, an EEG tech and researcher. She tells us why and what techs should do in the meantime.
A former hotel manager turned neurophysiology unit lead explores how good hospitality helps improve patient satisfaction and grow business. Having happier techs who know they can give their patients the clinical care they deserve enables them to go the extra mile.
Many often turn to natural remedies in their attempts to relieve symptoms and use of essential oils is gaining in popularity. In a new study, scientists are using electroencephalography (EEG) to find out just how these oils impact the brain.
Brain mapping is typically used during epilepsy and tumor removal surgeries in the eloquent cortex. This includes areas near the temporal and frontal lobes where critical functions like speech, movement, hearing, vision, memory, and touch are centered.
The growth of computer-driven quantitative EEG is a good thing for neurodiagnostic technologists, despite the fears of job displacement. Techs can learn how to use it and be ready for the jobs it will create — and they can start now.
Rapid Response EEG is increasingly being used in emergency rooms and the race is on to make it faster, more accurate, and even portable. At ASET's annual meeting, an expert explained why technologists need to keep up.
Pooling input from various subject-matter experts is making it possible to develop recommendations that can be readily adopted by hospitals and other facilities – to the benefit of neurodiagnostic technologists.
