Brainclinics Brainmarker Assessment Suite

What is The Brainmarker Assessment Suite?
The Brainmarker Assessment Suite can be used to identify neuromarkers or EEG phenotypes in a range of psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, Depression, Alzheimer’s, dementia, schizophrenia, PTSD, etc. to aid in personalizing treatments such as neurofeedback or rTMS.

Find out more on our Brainmarker Assessment Suite page.

Assessing data
Besides the presence of a wide range of diagnostic groups in a database, it is also important to have a good normative reference frame. For this we can provide access to a normative database of more than 2,000 healthy subjects and large patient groups (ADHD, depression, etc.) which includes neurophysiological and neuropsychological (IntegNeuro) data, the so-called Brain Resource International Database (BRID).

At Research Institute Brainclinics  we have for the last 2 decades been conducting research into the optimal use of the EEG for optimizing psychiatric treatments, also see our publications.  Furthermore, with our research we’re always pushing the envelope with the newest technologies and advances, such as the use of source-localization, cross-frequency coupling and deep learning to advance a future of stratified psychiatry, or personalized psychiatry further.

Recently we’ve been researching Brainmarkers, or Biomarkers in the brain. See this article in Biological Psychiatry CNNI investigating Brainmarker-I in relation to ADHD, or this article on Frontal Alpha Symmetry (FAA) in Neuroimage: Clinical. FAA can be used as a treatment optimization prognostic biomarker in Major Depressive Disorder.
Our software can identify no less than four brainmarkers.

At Brainclinics we’re very excited to offer our turnkey laboratory solutions and expertise to you, to advance your clinic or your research!

History of QEEG research
Did you know that EEG and QEEG have a long history? Of course it all started with Hans Berger’s discovery in 1929, but thanks to the ‘Space-Race’ and Ross Adey at the UCLA Brain Research Institute QEEG or Normative EEG was first pioneered in the 1960’s. For a brief historical review also see our EEG history section.

Would you like to know more? The very enjoyable book “Neurofeedback, how it all started” gives an extensive, highly readable and sometimes surprising account of the history of the EEG and QEEG. Get your own copy while stocks last!

The EEG test procedure

The standardised Brainmarker Assessment Procedure we use runs on our own dedicated hardware and software platform. Here clients are assessed (non-invasively) while measuring brain function using EEG. In addition to Eyes-Open and Eyes-Closed EEG, clients are also assessed on a variety of tasks, such as oddball and during a resonant breathing exercise, to record Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability and of course, most importantly, Event Related Potentials (ERP’s). These ERP measurements provide information about information processing  with a millisecond time resolution. Furthermore, clients are assessed through a validated questionnaire. A comprehensive report is available about 10 to 15 minutes after the assessment.
You can find more information here: The Brainclinics Brainmarker Assessment Suite.

We use the following specific tasks in our EEG assessments:

The EEG Assessment
qeeg assessment event related potentialsThe Assessment is available in English and Dutch.
You can request other languages.

Auditory oddball
qeeg assessment event related potentialsThe subject is presented with tones and is required to ignore the low tones, and press a response button only when one hears the infrequent high tones.
Reflects: Capacity to process relevant whilst ignoring irrelevant information.

Resting EEG
qeeg assessment event related potentialsThe subject is asked to sit quietly and focus on the red dot (eyes open) followed by an eyes closed task.
Reflects: A baseline of brain and body measures.

Resonant Breathing
resonant breathingThe subject is presented with an animation to guide his/her breathing frequency. The animation starts at a higher frequency, then gradually slows down.
Result: Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability will show an optimal rhythm at a specific frequency.

The brain (QEEG) test, including the fitting of the EEG cap, takes approximately 2 hours and the task instructions are very simple and easy to understand. The questionnaire can be executed during the fitting of the cap. All tests are used for all ages, making the database ‘assumption free’, which the natural development of a test on different age can be followed perfectly.

rTMS equipment

What is rTMS?
rTMS stands for repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or brain stimulation in short. When applying rTMS, a coil is put at a precise and particular location on the head. The strong magnetic field generated by the coil is converted into pulses which exit the device and then easily penetrates through the skull to reach the brain. These strong magnetic pulses can stimulate specific parts of the brain and can help normalize connectivity within specific functional networks that are implicated in for example mood or compulsions as seen in depression or OCD. For more detailed information about how rTMS works, and for what indications it can be used also our rTMS review. More information about combined rTMS with psychotherapy can be found here.

We listen
Our experience and expertise with rTMS in clinical practice and research is unmatched. Since 2006, we pioneered the technique in the Netherlands and have since then refined and advanced our knowledge and expertise to the point of perfection. We have seen equipment evolve over time, from ‘vacuum-cleaner’ based TMS cooling devices, via blown-up stimulators and the dTMS head-mounted coils to the highly portable TMS systems we can carry around for easy demonstrations. Furthermore, we’ve been instrumental in the development of new innovative TMS approaches such as Heart-Brain Coupling, and always keep the patient-perspective in mind.

We have experience with all major TMS systems and never shy in engaging with manufacturers when it comes to improving their equipment.

Our feedback matters, manufacturers listen. And we listen to you.

More information?
The devices that we work with are best-in-class, and of course they’re medical CE approved. All systems we recommend are capable of standard rTMS protocols (HF or LF TMS) as well as iTBS. Furthermore, devices can be used for DLPFC stimulation as well as more experimental protocols such as OFC-stimulation using double-cone coils.

We’ll describe them in short below.

If you are interested to apply rTMS in your own practice, or have further questions, please contact us for advice, and of course we’d be happy to provide you with a quotation too, As turnkey laboratory solutions or -if you prefer- to set up your own lab.

Neuro Cardiac Guided TMS (Heart-Brain Coupling)

Connecting brain and heart
‘…where to exactly apply rTMS?…’ is probably one of the most often asked questions in the TMS field. Until recently there were only few answers to that question, the first answer being the ‘5-cm. rule’ which has been used to locate the Dorso-Lateral-Prefrontal-Cortex or DLPFC. Later the Beam-F3 method was added which compensated for more relative differences in head-shape. However, most neurosurgeons have always been a bit wary of such approaches when applying brain stimulation. At Brainclinics we also wrestled with that question for some time, and inspired by some great research out in the field we realised that we needed to find a functional outcome representing activation of the network involved in depression. This turned out to be the Frontal-Vagal pathway (see here for a review), or the network that connects th heart and the brain. A method we thus termed: Neuro-Cardiac Guided rTMS (Heart-Brain Coupling) which can be instrumental in adequately targetting the Frontal-Vagal network.

A groundbreaking PhD thesis on this very interesting subject by one of our researchers can be found and downloaded here

NCG-ENGAGE is a biofeedback system to be used for NCG-rTMS. The NCG-ENGAGE can be used by researchers and clinicians to exact cortical area that comprises the Frontal-Vagal pathway, by looking at the  individual point of maximum heart rate deceleration.

In the future, NCG-ENGAGE will possibly enable clinicians to individualize rTMS therapy for depression and other diseases for patients. The method is intended to help determine the optimal site of rTMS stimulation. Further clinical data are currently being collected.

Custom rTMS chair

versatile custom anti-microbialrtms chair with adjustable headrest

Safe and Durable
Our rTMS chairs are upholstered in a durable, high quality composite synthetic leather with anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-mycotic properties. The multi layered coating offers durability and exceptional resistance to abrasion and UV. These chairs are ideally suited for intensive use and very easy to clean, and specifically designed for medical uses.

Ensuring your client’s comfort while also enhancing the rTMS treatment: that was the goal we set out to accomplish when we re-thought the idea of our Brainclinics rTMS chair. The sturdy stainless steel neck-support base is completely adjustable (up/down, forward/backward, sideways and rotation/angle) using just one easily manipulatable lever. The support “pillow” itself is comfortably soft and very easy to clean, and will keep the head in place and restricts the amount of movement, for more accurate TMS targetting.

This versatility ensures a reclining position that is very relaxing for your client, and provides ideal circumstances for rTMS treatment: a relaxed client will not be fidgety and won’t move around a lot, thus greatly improving coil positioning and pulse targeting without the use of restraints.

This chair is specially designed and customized by Brainclinics for the treatment of clients with rTMS. We asked our clients to evaluate their comfort or discomfort during treatment and applied their feedback to the ergonomic design of the chair and especially the neck support. During the prototyping phase we tested many different forms before choosing the perfect design.

Our comfortable, versatile and easily adjustable rTMS chair is available in many colors, while we also offer arm rests and swivel wheels as options.
