Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and q EEG based swLORETA Neurofeedback Training
It likely comes as no surprise that what medicine calls “mild traumatic brain injury” (or mTBI, colloquially known as a concussion) are quite common. In fact, some of the people reading this are likely to have experienced at least one mTBI that they were never even aware of, given how common it is for such injuries to go unreported
Sensory Processing Disorder – What Is It ?
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) refers to a condition in which sensory inputs are processed incorrectly by the brain, which can lead to inappropriate behavioral responses to certain stimuli.
Treating Anxiety in Unprecedented Times
Besides the virus itself, we had to learn to deal with all of the secondary effects of a global lockdown – disruptions to our daily routines, more time spent indoors in close quarters with others, and reduced access to many of the activities many of us used to balance out the already-considerable stresses of the usual day to day life’s tasks – and all of these continue to affect our neurology and mental health even as the world at large has slowly begun to open back up.
Sensory Processing and Emotional Regulation
Many of us think that perception and behavior are two separate things and that processing stimuli and their parameters, such as intensity, speed, etc. has to do with cognition alone. But whether we are aware of it or not, what we perceive can have a considerable impact on our emotions, leading to an array of responses which in turn affect our behavior.
ADHD in Teens and the Need to Closer Understand Them
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, known to most of us as ADHD, is perhaps more widely acknowledged in our culture today than it is actually well-understood by it. While it was first described by medical researchers as long ago as the 18th century, its exact diagnostic parameters continue to shift to this day as awareness of it grows and its demography continues to shift.
Reading and Listening: Two Comprehension Skills Intertwined
If you read some of our previous blog posts, you’ll know that the brain’s “communication apparatus” is actually a multitude of specialized structures from the ear to the primary auditory cortex acting in concert to process and integrate different kinds of auditory and visual information.
Auditory Processing Networks and Effective Listening
A popular assumption is that aptitude for language correlates with one’s intelligence. Indeed, research shows that individuals who are astute listeners are more likely to succeed in their jobs, relationships, public life – any situation in which effective communication is beneficial. That said, human communication is a dazzlingly complex interplay of different parts of the brain working in concert to analyze, organize and store a wide variety of sensory input.
Treating Misophonia and Anxiety, Together and Apart, Using the Tomatis Listening Method
Anxiety only enters the picture once a patient’s symptoms have become so acute and persistent that they are impairing their ability to function normally. Usually, this manifests as the patient isolating themselves socially from fear of the suffering imposed by their symptoms.
Treating Dyslexia Using the Listening Method Developed by Dr. Alfred Tomatis
We know that dyslexia affects the ability to process visual information, and its effects range from difficulties with comprehending and producing written language to struggles with verbal communication, attention and information retention.
