  1. This is the actual testimony to congress to advise them how to spend the budgetted funds for mTBI and PTSD. The report has listed BCI as a fundable technique which should get NF proposals actually in the funded mix, and the use of “EEG with digital analysis” to cover the use of qEEG. EEG and ERPs were listed as assessment approaches… and mTBI Discriminant use was specifically not included.

    If you are interested in these issues, attending the actual hearings may be of interest to you.
