  • Appreciate the distinguishing features of brain mapping though quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) and discriminant matching of biomarkers as compared to other brain imaging modalities.
  • Understand who can benefit from brain mapping and what the value of a thorough assessment means in the future of specialized education and behavioural healthcare.
  • Observe the significant impact of qEEG neurometrics and cognitive optimization on the improvement of educational outcomes, mental health symptoms, and maintenance of sobriety.
