There is so much new research and information coming out about neurofeedback; we wanted to make sure that information is available for you!
“The Salvation Army Bell Shelter in Los Angeles, CA, has implemented a new tool to help people get back on their feet: Neurofeedback. An emerging & non-invasive treatment, Neurofeedback helps treat the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse. Watch the video to see some of the incredible stories of change happening at the Bell Shelter, and to learn how neurofeedback works, and why it’s been so effective.”
At MyBrainDR we LOVE seeing how neurofeedback can help the people in our community and especially our brave men and women in uniform serving our country! We couldn’t be more excited to learn how this study on neurofeedback and TBI/concussions is helping to heal soldiers right in our backyard.
Currently soldiers at Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg and at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland are participating in a study using neurofeedback technology from Cereset Research to examine the impact of neurofeedback on soldiers with mTBIs. mTBIs (mild traumatic brain injuries) have been deemed the signature injury of soldiers fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This study, set to conclude in 2020 has already shown some positive results though! After just 10 sessions Col. Tyler Harris, who suffers from PTSD and experienced a mild traumatic brain injury stated that “Probably the biggest difference [I noticed] immediately was sleep, that I slept better,” Harris said. “The other thing that I noticed and my wife noticed just an easier time with emotional regulation.”
Less than one hour of brain training with neurofeedback leads to a strengthening of neural connections and communication among brain areas. This is the main finding of a new study conducted at D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), published in Neuroimage. According to the authors, the study may pave the way for the optimization and development of therapeutic approaches against stroke and Parkinson’s, for example.

It is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks! Even 40+ year old quarterback Josh McCown has gone on record saying that brain training and neurofeedback has made all difference in his skill level over the past few years!
