Robert W. Thatcher, Ph.D.
Board Qualified in Conventional EEG and QEEG
We provide competent and professional analyses and reports by Robert W. Thatcher, Ph.D. for qEEG assessment and EEG biofeedback protocol generation. Dr. Thatcher has evaluated over 20,000 EEG recordings in the last 30 years and he is considered one of the “Fathers” of qEEG along with Dr. E. Roy John in the 1970s (John and Thatcher, 1977). He was on the Board of the American Board of Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology (ABEN) and helped write the examination for both conventional and QEEG certification by the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS). Dr. Thatcher is Board Qualified in both Conventional and QEEG (ECNS/ABEN), he is a Diplomat in the American Board of QEEG, he is a Certified Neurotherapist, Academy of Certified Neurotherapists and he passed the BCIA certification exam in 1999. He is the author of over 200 total scientific publications including seven books the latest being the: “Handbook of QEEG and EEG Biofeedback”. In 2002 to the present, Dr. Thatcher designed NeurGuide as a suite of tools to evaluate the electroencephalogram including 3-dimensional imaging of the EEG sources. An Expert Clinical Neurophysiologist including evaluation of conventional EEG tracings as well as quantitative (QEEG) including discriminant analyses, Neurotherapy Strategies and/or LORETA for patients with suspected focal abnormalities. Functional network analyses based on comparisons to a reference normal database is used to make scientifically likely relationships between location and function in different brain networks. We provide an analysis of a QEEG test only and no diagnoses. Diagnoses are to be made by a competent clinical professional based on a clinical history, symptoms/complaints and tests and assessments. The QEEG analysis is just one test and by itself is not sufficient to make a diagnosis.
