Brain-based Assessment in 

Mental Health:

QEEG & Event Related Potentials Training Program

Proudly brought to you by 


in collaboration with world renowned neuroscientist

Prof. Juri Kropotov 

About this course

This course is an important event in Australia as it gives opportunity to health practitioners to learn about the advanced methods of EEG Brain Diagnostics (EBD) in a comprehensive step by step program tailored for busy health professionals. The journey will take you from standard EEG through quantitative EEG (QEEG) to the pinnacle of electroencephalography: Event Related Potentials.

Quantitative EEG (QEEG) and Event Related, potentials (ERPs) are valuable tools for supporting the diagnosis and targeted therapy of mental disorders. These methods help to identify EEG biomarkers indicative of brain dysfunction and may inform personalized treatment of brain-based disorders.

Practitioners who will benefit from this training: neurologists, psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, general practitioners, pediatricians, occupational therapists, neurofeedback therapists, and other registered health professionals.

Make a more precise assessment and treat your patients more effectively!

Based on feedback from previous participants we are offering a more  developmental approach to learning EEG and ERPs in 4 steps. See program details below or download  a course Brochure

Mind, Science & My Health (MSMH) has developed flexible training options toward completion of Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) Didactic Training which is required for those seek preparation toward QEEG Certification through IQCB* .

     *The International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB) was established to certify the competence of individuals in obtaining and interpreting a Quantitative Electroencephalograph (QEEG). In addition to a minimum of 10 hours of mentoring and passing the IQCB examination in QEEG, candidates must complete a 36-hour QEEG Didactic Training course.

    Brain, Mind and Memory Institute (BMMI) is a private foundation established to promote application of advanced methods EEG Brain Diagnostics in Medicine and Allied Health field. Since 2010 we have been involved in training and supporting health professionals and researchers in using EEG based methods to investigate brain function and cognition in clinical settings.We provide turn key solutions for EEG brain Diagnostics based clinics including ongoing support and reporting service.

       About the course presenters

      Professor Juri Kropotov is a world-renowned neuroscientist and a leading expert in the basic and applied neuroscience. The unique methodology developed in his labs at the Human Brain Institute in St Petersburg (Russia) allows a sophisticated analysis of brain electric activity in resting states and under task conditions. The methodology is described in his book Kropotov, J.D. (2009). Quantitative EEG, event-related potentials and neurotherapy. London: Academic Press. These precise measurements of brain function can be used as Neuromarkers in the clinical context to evaluate brain health in different psychiatric and neurological disorders. The experience of translating this methodology into clinical practice is presented in his recently published book Kropotov, J. D. (2016). Functional neuromarkers for psychiatry: Applications for diagnosis and treatment. San Diego, CA, US: Elsevier Academic Press. Juri’s workshops are totally unique: the workshop will give you theoretical and practical experience of how to measure and analyse QEEG and ERPs using Human Brain Index Database with most advanced software tools available. Learning to use Neuromarkers is essential for psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, forensic and criminology experts, brain researchers and anyone involved in brain training and neuromodulation.

      Introduction to Event-Related Potentials in Clinical Practice: ERPs Webinar Series

      featuring Professor Juri Kropotov

      An event-related potential (ERP) is an electrical response of the brain to a specific event. It is measured by the same amplifiers as a conventional multi-channel EEG but adds measurements during task performance: presentation of stimuli (visual, auditory) and response to stimuli (pressing a button, verbal response…).  In the 1-hour ERP webinars, Professor Kropotov will review the methods for ERP recording, the approaches of extracting latent components, discuss advantages and disadvantages of different ERP databases, and describe cases of different psychiatric conditions.

      First webinar  is FREE:

      • Introduction to Event-Related Potentials: 5:30 pm Brisbane AEST, Tuesday 12th November

      Followed by 6 x 1-hour live webinars:

      • ERPs and ADHD, 5.30pm BNE AEST, Tuesday 19th November
      • ERPs and ASD, 5.30pm BNE AEST, Tuesday 26th November
      • ERPs and Schizophrenia, 5.30pm BNE AEST, Tuesday 3rd December
      • ERPs and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, 5.30pm Brisbane AEST, Tuesday 10th December
      •  ERPs and Alzheimer’s Disease, 5.30pm Brisbane AEST, Tuesday 17th December
      •  ERPs and Peak Performance, 5.30pm Brisbane AEST, Tuesday 7th January

          STEP II. Develop Clinical Understanding 

          QEEG and/or ERPs Analysis, Reporting and Consultation Service

          QEEG and/or ERP recording available at BMMI (Tweed Heads, NSW) or MSMH (Toowoomba, QLD)

          Other clinic locations to be announced - providers will be Certified in QEEG & ERP recording.
