Recently, we discovered Forbrain®, a predominantly at-home intervention that can also be used with us in the office. With Forbrain®, you listen to your own voice with a special headset that enhances specific frequencies of speech. Bone conduction transmits the sound of your own voice 10 times faster and with greater clarity than air conduction. It’s useful for children and adults — anyone, wanting to improve speaking, memory and focus.Read More
Sports are the greatest test of concentration, flexibility and problem solving. Increasingly we see more reports of competitive athletes drawing on the benefits of biofeedback and neurofeedback (biofeedback for the brain).
Many athletes including Kirk Cousins , Kerri Walsh-Jennings, and Lucas Giolito have shown the promise of using neurofeedback in sports. So, how does neurofeedback affect a person's ability to play sports?Read More
Einstein has been a hero of mine since I was a kid. The reasons for that have changed over time. Early on, I just loved his unruly hair, how both rebellious and distinguished he looked at the same time. Also, he was considered a true genius for his scientific discoveries, like E= MC squared — whatever that meant.
This article will help you celebrate Einstein's genius and cultivate your own.Read More
I was planning an event with a friend, and he said: “Well, as you know, my brain works much faster than yours…” That was like a red flag being waved in front of me.

Membership was one of those things that sounded good, but I never did it.Read More

Sarah (not her real name) was an insomniac.
When trying to close her eyes and relax each night, a freight train was rushing by in her mind, each car filled with ideas, fears, anxieties; ideas, fears, anxieties; ideas, fears, anxieties. Instead of bringing relief, sleeping pills and alcohol had only pulled her into an added problem with addiction.Read More
When I talk with people about my neurofeedback work, the response is often the same: "That's amazing, you do brain scans? I'd like to do that some day."
Now you have the opportunity.Read More
Anyone who has ever driven I-80 any long distance, especially from Chicago going east, will testify to the monotony and beauty of the trip. The peaceful journey through farmland was a sharp contrast to the intense, fast-paced conference on innovations in neuroscience and treatment at my Cleveland destination.Read More
Lately I've been immersing myself in the percussion music of Spanish composer and performer Nacho Arimany. He's featured in the new brain training tool I am almost (but not quite) ready to offer my clients called InTime. From Advanced Brain Technologies, with whom Nacho collaborated to create this tool.Read More

We all know someone who went through an event like a car accident, military tour, or sports injury and never seems quite the same.
