As we age or after a Traumatic Brain Injury, the power of the brain can be disrupted and slowed, to the point that memory is affected. If this happens too early in life or slows down too fast, it may manifest in forgetting appointments, commitments, and names of people you know. Even worse, memory loss may cause a debilitating sense of lack of control.
Americans are living longer making it more important than ever to maintain strong cognition (thinking) for as long as we can. Although science has shown that cognition can start to slowly decline as early as the age of 30, it unfortuately happens quicker in older adults. Therefore, it’s important to help strengthen these brainwaves to allow for a maturing individual to have more control of their memory into those later years.
Neuroplasticity is your brain’s remarkable ability to create new neural pathways. This puts you in the driver’s seat of reclaiming and optimizing your health. Your brain is not hard-wired; it is not limited or fixed in it’s abilities to heal. When the imbalance is removed and brainwaves are regulated, cognitive function naturally improves as does the ability to remember. Neurofeedback has been shown to help increase the brain’s performance and even heal brain cells, thereby creating better processing speeds and leading to a stronger working memory.
