The Clinical Neuroscience Supporting Dr. Emory's Method:

Dr. Emory's medical EEG/QEEG research has identified diverse brain variations in persons who suffer with persistent mental, substance dependence and developmental/learning disorders. Such brain variations are typically not seen by visual EEG inspection. The result is these data are not considered in current medical, psychiatric and psychological practices. Dr. Emory is the world's most experienced physician in an emerging field that combines clinical medicine, neurology and neuropsychiatry.

  • The above pre-treatment EEGs are from three anorexic patients after nutritional restoration.
  • Each was classified as anorexic, but their brainwave activity was different.
  • Different brainwave activity means their neurophysiologies were different.
  • Each patient's EEG/QEEG data were linked with those of similar patients whose effective medical outcomes were known.
  • Psychiatry treats anorexic behaviors in a standard way; however, these diverse EEGs reveal that their neurobiology was different and required individualized treatment.
  • The conclusion is that symptoms and behaviors are inadequate for prescribing medication.

  • Dr. Emory's method is patient centered and includes any emotional, mental and physical concerns that relate to a person's distress.
  • Dr. Emory's clinical procedure collects the usual subjective information about each patient, but also adds objective data.
  • Clinical Procedures:

    • Conduct a comprehensive, medical history
    • Relevant physical examination and monitoring of any atypical physical signs and physical findings
    • Mental status and cognitive assessment
    • Individualized laboratory values as indicated
  • Technical Procedures:

    • Obtain a baseline unmedicated EEG and quantitative EEG for analysis.
    • Identify how a new patient's brainwaves differ from people the same age who have no symptoms.
    • Dr. Emory uses each patient's physical findings and EEG/QEEG data to deduce the likely brain-body variation that is causing distress.
  • Medical Treatment Selection:

    • Dr. Emory uses his extensive EEG/QEEG database to identify medications that are known to improve the physiologic outcome of patients with similar physical findings and EEG/QEEG data.
    • Dr. Emory prescribes medication(s) by analogic reasoning (similar physical findings and similar QEEG likely indicates similar neuro-physiology) that are likely to improve each person's brain activity.
    • Dr. Emory monitors a patient's progress toward Brain-Body-Balance and mental wellbeing.
    • Side effects indicate that a medication is incompatible with individual physiology. In such cases Dr. Emory replaces the medication for one which is better suited.
  • Follow-up:

    • Monitor the resolution of each patient's initial concerns, physical findings and problematic behaviors.
    • A follow-up EEG/QEEG with medication shows the effect of medical treatment on each patient's Brain-Body-Balance.
