Parietal lobes

Parietal lobe.jpgCan you read and write? Do math? Put on your shoes? Read a map? Apply lipstick or know when someone is unhappy? Catch a ball?

If so, thank your Parietal lobes!!!

  • The parietal lobe is complex in that there is a dominant hemisphere and a non-dominant hemisphere. The parietal lobe controls abilities such as math calculation, writing, left-right orientation, and finger recognition. Lesions in part of the parietal lobe can cause deficits in writing, arithmetic calculation, left-right disorientation, and finger-naming (Gerstmann syndrome).
  • The nondominant parietal lobe controls the opposite side of the body enabling you to be aware of environmental space, and is important for abilities such as drawing, being aware of expression, body language and facial recognition. If you can recognize feelings on someone’s face, be grateful to your parietal lobe near the temporal lobe. .An acute injury to the nondominant parietal lobe may cause neglect of the contralateral side (usually the left), resulting in decreased awareness of that part of the body, its environment, and any associated injury to that side (anosognosia). For example, patients with large right parietal lesions may deny the existence of left-sided paralysis. Patients with smaller lesions may lose the ability to do learned motor tasks (eg, dressing, other well-learned activities)—a spatial-manual deficit called apraxia.

Parietal lobe functions include:

  • Cognition
  • Information Processing
  • Touch Sensation (Pain, Temperature, etc.)
  • Understanding Spatial Orientation
  • Movement Coordination
  • Speech
  • Visual Perception
  • Reading and Writing
  • Mathematical Computation

Training with Neurofeedback can assist the brain in making new pathways and support the brain in rewiring itself. Schedule your free demo today to learn more about how Neurofeedback can bring you to a higher state of awareness and function. For the first time in history, we can see our own brains at work and assist its functioning to a higher state of optimization.

I look forward to working with you!

Brain Mapping

Non-invasive QEEG Brain Mapping is analogous to a physician performing a throat culture on a patient with a throat infection to determine which antibiotic would best eradicate the infection.  Brain Mapping gives answers to what’s going on below the surface.  The electrodes are placed on the head, and read the electrical activity coming off of the brain.

The Brain Map analysis gives us important information to more effectively help improve the quality of life and productivity of each individual patient.  Each segment of the brain produces brain wave activity that can be measured and will indicate the level of functioning of that region.  Treatment is then guided by the map.  A brain map is done prior to treatment and after about 10 sessions.

QEEG (Quantitative Electro- encephalogram) or Brain Mapping is an essential diagnostic procedure for developing non-drug treatment protocols for Attention and focus issues, Autism, Learning Disorders, Anxiety, Depression and Stress Related Illnesses.

In a safe, spa-like space you will sit comfortably for about an hour with a non-invasive electrode cap on your head while we take a reading of the brain’s activity.  This map will then guide our treatment for your sessions.

Neurofeedback and Mindfulness

Holiday Mindfulness, Meditation, and Neurofeedback

Give yourself a gift this holiday and 2016…..Through mindfulness and meditation research, neuroscientists have come to recognize the emotional and health benefits of a clear, balanced and centered mind.

By training  your brain with Neurofeedback, the more subtle and complex thoughts come into awareness. We become more resilient, more connected, more ourselves; allowing intuition and inspiration to flow.

The advantage of integrating modern neuroscience (brain training) with ancient mindful tools such as meditation is to enhance the brain’s inherent neuroplasticity.  Brain training acts as a mental compass, showing the way into states that are difficult to reach without guidance. After some practice, you can get there on your own.
This field of study has been greatly aided by the Dalai Lama, who for nearly 20 years has furthered scientific knowledge in this area by strengthening the exchange of knowledge between eastern masters and neuroscientists.
Happy Holidays!  Schedule your FREE demonstration today!
