Neurofeedback Can Help Improve Memory
The proper function of memory is associated with balanced brainwave generation. Specifically, proper Theta brainwave generation at 5 to 8 cycles per second has been shown to directly relate to memory function. However, as we age, the generation of these brainwaves can become less efficient.
Currently, a whole new group of drugs, originally designed to help with Alzheimer`s and cognitive decline are used to try and combat this problem.
Neurofeedback Offers A Different Approach
First, we measure your brain`s current efficiency, using an advanced technology, called a qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) to measure and analyze the flow of electricity in each lobe of your brain. The test is painless, and takes about twenty minutes to perform.
The Results Allow Us To “Retrain Your Brain”
Using the results of this analysis, a personalized training protocol is designed to improve any underlying imbalances. The training itself is easy. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy a movie!
During the training session, we will have sensors measuring your brainwaves, which creates audio and visual feedback directly to you, based on the real time measurements of brainwave activity. Just like physical exercise can help your body develop new muscle tissue, over time, neurofeedback can help your brain create new neural pathways. These new, more efficient pathways allow your brain to function better, leading to improved mental acuity and memory.
