Progress begins with innovation

We are entering a new era of psychiatry and neurology

The fifth revised edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) in the beginning aimed to classify mental disorders according to biological markers. Due to the reluctant reactions of practices and the fact that there are still several uncertainties, the makers of the biomarker approach decided to postpone the inclusion of the approach into the DSM until the 6th revision. The new approach assumes that a psychiatric diagnosis is made not only from behavior, but also from the knowledge of which brain system is impaired. It is almost certain that the biomarker approach will become widely accepted because it leads to objectivity and transparency.

We are facing a renaissance of EEG

The renaissance is associated with the development of new methods of analysis and breakthrough discoveries pertaining to the neuronal mechanisms of EEG. The majority of the new methods (e.g. the decomposition of EEG and evoked responses into independent components, and LORETA – Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography) were initiated in laboratory settings only a few years ago. There is an urgent need however to introduce these new methods into clinical practice. Unfortunately, none of the existing normative data bases use the newly developed technologies.

This flaw of the current databases is resolved in a new database built up on the methodology developed in the Human Brain Institute (HBI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute for Experimental Medicine of the Russian Medical Academy of Sciences. This methodology was awarded the USSR State Prize (the highest scientific award in the former Soviet Union) and is officially recognized as a unique discovery in the field of human physiology. The database is now used in many scientific centers abroad as well as in clinical practises in Europe and the USA.
