LORETA (Low Resolution EEG Tomography) is based on the work of Robert Thatcher, PhD. This approach represents non-invasive brain imaging techniques, based on the data gathered from the 19 channel Quantitative EEG (qEEG) and Dr. Thatcher's qEEG database. It uses a mathematical process called the "inverse solution" to suggest what is happening in deep structures beneath the cortex. LORETA provides a 3-Dimensional source correlation of Brodman areas to a reference MRI. This allows the use of Neurofeedback directly on deep brain areas. The symptom checklist is combined with LORETA Z scores measured during a qEEG analysis to aid in linking a client's symptoms to functional networks within the brain. It is of particular use for Traumatic Brain Injury, Migraines and Autism or for those clients with multiple diagnoses. Progress is typically much more rapid than when using traditional forms of Neurofeedback employing only amplitude training.
Brooke has been coming to Children’s Therapy Services for 9 months. She has always received therapy through school due to severe prematurity. But when we decided she would go to a private school, she would no longer receive the services. I was impressed upon meeting Linda as she told us so much more about Brooke and why she needs OT and PT besides her prematurity. We have seen a difference in Brooke’s muscle strength and the strength on her left side. Nora our PT and Jennifer our OT work very well with Brooke and always find ways to make therapy fun. As a toddler, Brooke would run from her therapist’s, but now she enjoys her time at therapy. Thank-you Linda, Nora and Jennifer!
