Neurofeedback News and Research August 2019

Study: Neurofeedback shown to Reduce Anxiety

anxiety and neurofeedbackAnxiety disorders, including panic disorder with or without agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and separation anxiety disorder, are the most prevalent mental disorders. Anxiety disorders follow a chronic course; however, there is a natural decrease in prevalence rates with older age. Anxiety disorders are highly comorbid with other anxiety disorders and other mental disorders.

The way Western medicine has treated anxiety in the past has been somewhat problematic- the class of drug most often used is tranquilizers which are a temporary solution at best, and can actually cause anxiety as they wear off. It is also well known that these drugs can also cause dependency, making them controlled substances that come with a no driving or operating heavy machinery warning.

It’s clear we need a new treatment model moving forward if we hope to gain any ground with a disease that affects so many people in the modern world.

Keeping your Brain Young- Neurofeedback for Longevity

With the rising prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases in the modern era, health conscious individuals are researching and applying novel methods to slow the process of cognitive decline and other age-related neurological problems.

Neurofeedback has become one of the go-to therapies being studied and used to slow the natural aging process. Cognitive health in old age goes hand-in-hand with physical health!

Some Brain Games May Grow the Size of Your Brain: Study

As we get older and have perhaps been sustaining years of poor “brain hygiene”, allowing mental habits like stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia to continue unabated, parts of the brain (like the hippocampus,  which works to consolidate information from short-term memory to long-term memory) can actually atrophy, often causing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which puts older people at increased risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Neurofeedback Brain Training for Achieving Peak Performance

neurofeedback for sports performancePeak performance has become a buzzword these days, as anyone from high end athletes to CEO’s can tell you. We modify our intake of food, substances or supplements, and implement other practices that we hope will lead to an increase in our work productivity, or possibly trim a few swings off our golf game.

Neurofeedback brain training is a method for achieving peak performance- changes in the brain translate to changes in physical performance. It starts with an EEG brain map to assess areas of your brain that need “tuning”. After neurofeedback sessions begin, your objective progress is measured by subsequent EEGs. Subjective changes are noted in terms of work or athletic productivity, psychological and perceptive changes, even fine motor control or balance.
