Improve Memory Loss with Neurofeedback
Living to 78 is ideal, we are living longer than ever! The average life span is calculated to be 78.74 years. Researchers have proven that memory loss, shows up in healthy, educated adults beginning at 60 years of age. However, in the most recent studies, it has been said that cognitive decline begins to manifest in a person’s 20s and 30s. Making it safe to say that, as the brain ages it becomes weaker in some or many areas and one will start noticing a decline in memory or other cognitive areas. Moreover, the weaker each area becomes, the greater the cognitive decline a person will experience.
Alzheimer’s disease is the third leading cause of death among the elderly, affecting more than 5 million Americans today. As you may know, Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder of the brain that compromises memory and cognitive functioning causing degenerative changes to occur in the brain, making everyday activities more and more challenging until the person becomes unable to care for themselves. Additionally, Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of dementia in the elderly population, accounting for 60% – 70% of dementia cases, which results in further loss of cognitive functioning. Even the easiest, most commonly performed tasks in a person’s life become impossible. Nonetheless, there is cognitive research that suggests when the brain areas are regulated and strengthened and communication is fine tuned, the brain is free to work better, more optimally, so you will notice that you feel and perform better.
How Neurofeedback helps?
Overall, neurofeedback can be utilized to maintain cognitive ability, including the preservation of memory and reasoning. Although it cannot reverse structural damage in the brain that has already occurred due to illnesses like Alzheimer’s, Neurofeedback focuses on training parts of the brain that are still healthy and functioning to prevent further degradation and maximize their function. Neurofeedback participants can stabilize their cognitive function, leading to an increased ability to recognize and remember information. Neurofeedback aids in healthy cognition for individuals struggling with their memory and better mental health quality of life with improved memory performance.
