Delta waves are the brainwaves usually experienced during sleep and have the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency. They typically center around a range o 1.5 to 4 cycles per second, and a balance of sleeping and waking delta waves are necessary for well-being. Benefits of Delta Waves Delta Waves allow you to get a good [...]

How Delta Waves Affect Your Sleep

By |2018-09-09T22:37:15-05:00September 9th, 2018|

Understanding Delta Waves and Your Sleep By Kendra Cherry Link to the original article on VeryWellMind A delta wave is a type of high amplitude brain wave found in humans. Delta waves have a frequency from one to four hertz and are measured using an electroencephalogram (EEG). These brain waves are thought to emerge from the [...]

PTSD Drug Research & Memory Formation

By |2018-09-09T22:08:23-05:00September 9th, 2018|

By Barry Bruder An article entitled Erasing Painful Memories in the May 2012 issue of Scientific American reviews some of the current PTSD drug research on the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Memory is no longer seen as a passive process of recording impressions. Rather, it is ongoing activity at the cellular and neurochemical [...]

Studies Using Electrical Stimulation, Neuroimaging Aim for New Insights on TBI, PTSD By Mike Richman VA Research Communications VA scientists are studying an experimental electrical stimulation technique, coupled with neuroimaging, to learn how mild traumatic brain injury interacts with PTSD in specific areas of the brain. Researchers at the VA San Diego Healthcare System are carrying out [...]

MCN Neurofeedback Is Good News for Concussion Sufferers

By |2018-09-07T21:04:12-05:00September 7th, 2018|

MCN Neurofeedback & the Reduction in Concussion Symptoms Written by Linda Edwards, RN, MSN A leading brain imaging research team at UC San Diego studied IASIS Micro-Current Neurofeedback (MCN Neurofeedback) in individuals who suffered a concussion. A striking 53.6% reduction in abnormal brainwaves and a 52.8% reduction in post-concussive symptoms were achieved after only twelve [...]

Mild TBI Diagnosis & Management Strategies

A Pilot Treatment Study for Mild TBI By Mingxiong Huang, PhD Seminar date: 12/6/2017 We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate neuronal changes in individuals with mild TBI following a treatment program that involves low-intensity pulses using transcranial electrical stimulation (LIP-tES). Mild TBI participants showed significantly reduced abnormal slow-waves and significant reduction of symptom scores after the treatment. The mechanisms of LIP-tES [...]
