Qeeghistorypic2uantitative EEG as a Biomarker for Parkinson’s disease

The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a non-invasive procedure providing key information for each participant’s brain cortical activity. Approximately 50% of Parkinson’s patients have atypical EEG profiles consisting of diffuse and slow background activity. The aim of this study is to evaluate differential brain activity pattern with progression of Parkinson’s disease. The EEG and quantitative (QEEG) findings are highly individualized offering a unique analysis at personal level. EEG tracing will be recorded while participants are awake with eyes closed.

Requirements: Prospective candidates must be between ages of 30-80 years old and diagnosed with PD. Participants are asked to complete all forms prior to beginning the study. To participate, email us at  research@emoryinstitute.org or call 310. 277. 7711
