Encephalographs

Definition : Recorders designed to measure and record data and graphics of the physical and/or functional characteristics of the brain. Encephalographs are usually intended to record one or several of the following data and graphics: (1) electrical potential caused by the electrical activity of the brain (i.e., electroencephalographs); (2) electrical activity of the brain due to the application of external stimuli (evoked potentials); (3) biomagnetic field caused by the electrical activity of the brain neurons detected externally to the body (i.e., magnetoencephalographs); (4) ultrasonic signals reflected by the brain and surrounding tissues (i.e., echoencephalographs). Encephalographs are intended for evaluation of recorded information of the brain and central nervous system conditions; they are not intended for real-time assessment of those conditions. Other devices, such as neurologic monitors and image scanning systems (e.g., MRI, CT) are also used to evaluate brain conditions and disorders.

Lexicor Medical Technology Inc

Company Type: Parent

The company's first product was the NeuroSearch-24 (NRS-24). Mr. Joffe's design lowered the cost of functional brain mapping systems. Additionally, the NRS-24 pioneered a new intended use for brain mapping devices; the NRS-24 allowed for "the precise, objective and consistent characterization of the spatio-spectral properties of the EEG." This was one of the first commercial applications of software in the field of Neurometrics, and with it the company pioneered the use of qualitative EEG mapping in the area of mental assessments. Prior to the advent of the NRS-24, EEG devices had been used primarily for neurological examinations. The new uses for EEG measurements that the NRS-24 created allowed professionals in psychology and other behavior therapy fields to integrate EEG devices into their practices.
