The Human Brain


The Human Brain

The human brain is the most exquisite, complex system of the universe. It is a dynamic and extremely plastic organ, and it is constantly shifting gears – from a thought to a task, from a daydream to a memory, from an emotion to high-speed processing, and back again. The brain samples the environment, processes it, and transmits commands for action – all of which generates electrical activity.


Plasticity

In the brain, electrical activity is everywhere. The brain is electro-chemical in nature. It’s making waves all the time.

As we shift back and forth in our daily functions, we end up with some frequencies more powerful than others. The ability to shift gears from one task to the next, or process executive functions in milliseconds, is determined by the brain’s flexibility – called plasticity. By contrast, a brain in a state of disorder is highly resistant to change. Even as it resists change, it holds on to any type of imbalance very rigidly (and for prolonged duration). For instance, if you are 35 years old and worry all the time, you grow a worrying brain. Your brain structure starts to grow around “worry” and consolidates around that state. This also applies to any other form of brain dysfunction, like OCD or anxiety.


Deep Relaxation

Fortunately, this holds true for positive behavior as well. Tibetan monks trained in the practice of meditation have learned to grow meditative brains. When you meditate, the whole cerebral cortex goes into low Alpha and/or Theta frequency.

With neurofeedback, you not only can modify brainwave activity, but also train the brain how to shift into different frequencies more effectively, thereby enhancing its plasticity.

Do you resist change? Are you stuck in a loop? Can’t focus or sleep? Neurofeedback can change all that.
