Memory problems that begin to interfere with normal daily life and activities are not considered normal aging (Cleveland Clinic). If you or a loved one is experiencing memory loss that extends past occasionally forgetting where you have set something, or has become a hindrance to day-to-day life, you may be experiencing cognitive decline.
Symptoms of memory loss and cognitive decline include:
- Forgetting recent events
- Repeating the same stories or same questions
- Forgetting the names of family members or friends
- Having trouble finding words or understanding spoken and written language
- Losing focus or easily distracted
- Daily tasks are more difficult, such as taking medication, paying bills, shopping
How Does Neurofeedback Improve Memory?
Neurofeedback is a result of advancements in technology that allow us to monitor brainwaves in real-time. With memory loss, Theta brainwaves are often out of balance with other brainwaves. To improve brain function and increase memory, Neurofeedback trains the brain to regulate the Theta waves and place them back in balance with the rest of the brain. This rebalancing creates new neuropathways in the brain, resulting in clearer thinking and improved memory – all without taking a single medication!
One Patient`s Story:
What Should I Expect In A Training Session?
Neurofeedback therapy is a relaxing experience that typically lasts about 30 minutes. It is a pain-free and relaxing. Two sensors placed on the scalp monitor brainwaves while a video plays for the patient. The brain waves are analyzed in real-time and based on the results, the audio and visual components of the video will change to increase or decrease certain types of brain waves.
This type of brain exercise is similar to how we exercise other muscles of the body. The more we do it, the more the brain changes and remains balanced. Though physical exercise should be done throughout life, neurofeedback training gives long-lasting results. Once the training is complete, the patient’s brain has changed, and the results last long into the future!
