Memory Impairment

It is very popular in the mass media to recommend brain building exercises to sharpen the mind. And while these can be helpful, neurofeedback provides a more effective strategy which goes directly to the brain to seek out the source of memory deficits. It is generally the case that memory declines when the brain is under-aroused. That is, the brain cells are not firing fast enough for the task at hand. This is seen with ADD, brain injury, certain mood disorders, and normal aging.

Unlike brain building exercises, neurofeedback can identify specific regions of the brain that are problematic so training can be targeted to these areas. Neurofeedback can also address issues of brain connectivity. Reading, as an example, involves multiply areas of the brain working together. If these areas are poorly connected to one another, reading will be difficult. During the assessment, this issue can be identified so training can focus improving communication between areas of the brain.

Problems with memory issues can arise from many different sources:

Neurofeedback trains the brain to enhance mental acuity, and improve concentration and memory. Please call us for a free consultation.

We recommend that you visit your physician to rule out other causes of memory decline such as the impact of prescription drugs or inadequate nutrition (e.g., low vitamin B12 levels) before beginning neurofeedback.
