Neurofeedback Can Help Improve Your Memory
The proper function of both long and short-term 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.
Research shows that neurofeedback can improve memory
Results announced in the International Journal of Psychophysiology this month show a link between neurofeedback training and improved memory in a 40 person trial. Dr David Vernon, from Imperial College London stated, “this is the first time we have shown a link between the use of neurofeedback, and improvements in memory.
Neurofeedback Offers A Different Approach
First, we measure your brain`s current efficiency.
This is done using an advanced technology, called a qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) to measure and analyze the flow of electricity in each lobe of your brain. The process is painless and takes about twenty minutes to perform.
The Results Allow Us To “Retrain Your Brain”
Once the measurements are done, we can create a personalized training protocol designed to improve any underlying imbalances. Best of all, the training 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. As with physical exercise, brain training with neurofeedback can help your brain create new “mental muscle”. These new, more efficient neural pathways are the key to better mental acuity and functioning. Best of all, it`s completely natural!
