The Brain Profiling Group (BPG) specializes
in the testing and evaluation of brain function, for the purpose of detecting
and quantifying abnormalities arising from psychological
disorders or physical trauma. BPG provides this specialist service for
professionals, medical and legal practitioners and patients seeking clarification
of psychological and organic trauma,
and others who seek to obtain peak brain performance.
BPG utilizes newly developed neurophysiological
testing procedures (brain function testing) to provide
accurate, reliable, and objective measures of brain function, by directly
monitoring and measuring the functional activity of brain cells during
various states of arousal and information processing (Gordon et al.,
2005; Rowe et al. 2007)
This newly developed medical testing
technology overcomes the deficiencies of traditional neuropsychological
(cognitive) and behavioural testing, and other forms of subjective assessment.
This is possible through BPG's use of a computer bio-behavioural
interface during neuropsychological testing and simultaneous
recording of neurophysiology. This provides an unsurpassed level of sensitivity,
reliability and accuracy. The definitive brain profile or diagnosis which
results is supported by a scientifically robust quantitative and personalized
BPG's integrative neurophysiological,
cognitive and psychological testing has been used extensively for diagnostic
purposes relating to head injury, memory problems, early Alzheimer's,
impulse disorders, vascular disorders, intellectual impairment, attention
deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), brain injury, post-traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, sleep apnea, peak performance and
The medical technology used by BPG was
originally developed at the University
of Sydney and the Brain
Dynamics Centre, Westmead
Hospital through collaboration with an international
of scientists and clinicians. BPG now works in close cooperation with
Resource Company (BRC), who has been
responsible for the commercialization and further development of the
unique neurophysiological, brain wave, and neuropsychological testing
procedures. This ongoing cooperative agreement with BRC, along with
local and international clinical and scientific affiliations,
gives BPG clients access to an international network of Brain Function
laboratories, and an unsurpassed level of methodological standardization,
along with use of world's largest normative and clinical brain
BPG offers the latest brain diagnostic technology
supported by a depth of clinical experience in its application and
In summary, BPG brain function assessment offers the
- Use of world's largest
standardized and normative
database and most comprehensive
This represents numbers and measures that
are significantly greater and more comprehensive than competing
databases (Gordon et al., 2005; Johnstone et al., 2005;
Rowe et al., 2007).
This feature is critical and enables an unsurpassed level
of brain profiling, increased differentiation, sensitivity
and accuracy, over competing methods and traditional psychological,
neuropsychological and imaging techniques.
Databases with smaller numbers can lead to erroneous findings
and should not be relied upon.
