Memory is a function of the entire brain. On a neuronal level, the dendrites need to be firing and synapses occurring. Neurofeedback is a proven method to increase neuronal communication in the brain. It is estimated that there are about 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses going on in the human brain. With that amount of activity connecting and linking to the right parts of the brain can be complex.
When the neural pathways are open the information is being transmitted throughout the brain. Most types of memory are stored in the cortex and different areas of the cortex specialize in different kinds of information about its associations. If linkage is occurring between the different areas then seeing a picture of your vacation can retrieve family memories from the vacation.
Some degree of memory problems, as well as a modest decline in other cognitive skills, is s a normal part of aging. However, normal aging does not lead to dramatic memory loss. Such memory loss is typically due to illness or injury, some of which are treatable. Memory loss can be temporary or permanent.
Neurofeedback treatment teaches the brain self-regulation and brings the brain back into balance. Neurofeedback is supported by scientific research and is found to be safe, effective and non invasive treatment.
