In normal adults, the higher the peak frequency of alpha, the better the cognitive performance. 5 Hz. In addition, these delta frequencies may reflect cortical disconnect from the brain stem. Kirk and Mackay’s work30 suggests future possibilities of distinguishing between emotion-related lower-frequency theta and memory-related higherfrequency theta activity. These and other studies predict further important links to be found between various metabolic conditions, trauma, psychological disorder and specific EEG activity.

However, because the development of neurometric databases has been validated across different cultures, there is a high degree of confidence within the neurometric community that this issue has been laid to rest, and that brain development is generally the same regardless of race or culture. Those using neurometric databases are more likely to argue instead that accumulating research indicates that we now have a normative standard as a reference that better allows us to measure unique features of people, ranging from gifted individuals to those with disorders.

A room that is too hot or cold can affect recording, as can excess noise in the environment. A great number of individuals unconsciously grit their teeth, and this can introduce high levels of artifact into temporal lobe readings, and sometimes globally. Others have high muscle tension in their neck that generates excessive artifact in the posterior leads. 28 Fortunately, most of the EEG power is below roughly 26 Hz. In spite of all of these problems, once a cap is placed on the head and gel is injected into the electrodes, an acceptable EEG usually can be collected within 45 minutes by a practiced technician.
