The implementation of norms for Average Reference and Laplacian EEG coherence, EEG phase and EEG amplitude asymmetry for both eyes open and Eyes Closed conditions. The exclusive use of the FFT cross-spectrum and not complex demodulation. The reason for the replacement of complex demodulation by the FFT is because of the need for faster computations and because of the greater flexibility of the FFT in comparison to complex demodulation. XLTEK native file imports are now available.

March 26, 2002: NeuroGuide 1.2 was the first NeuroGuide to be distributed as a research tool and it was the first to use uninstall/install windows setup files. It added page up, page down, home, end and arrow keys as well as mouse changes in editing. It lacked color topographic maps and add-ons like discriminant functions and connection maps.

January – March 2002: Beta testing. The central and binding idea of NeuroGuide 1.0 is conventional EEG and QEEG on the same screen at the same time in which QEEG is a lens that can be changed by a click of a mouse. NeuroGuide 1.0 contained all the eyes open and eyes closed normative databases, re-montaging and automatic artifacting, dynamic Z score edits, ascii export, EEG printout, Lexicor, NeuroData, Mindset, CapScan and BrainMaster imports using calibrated sine waves as used today but it was not sold or distributed, and we thank all of those who beta tested NeuroGuide to help make it accurate, sensitive and reliable.
