Meet Erin: Well known artist sidelined by brain injury
Erin is an artist and art teacher. She was quite well known, with several celebrated shows in New York. She had a terrible fall while bike riding and sustained a serious traumatic brain injury. The injury left her suffering from fatigue with little stamina. She felt “dull, flat, non-inventive”. Her memory was impaired, she had trouble thinking clearly, could not stay organized or plan ahead. Due to these symptoms, she could not work. Could not do her art. Could not teach art.
After ten weeks and 20 sessions of neurofeedback training for brain injury, Erin was much improved. Her memory and planning were much better. She had her creative energy back. She plunged back into her art and teaching.
Two years later she wrote us: “I have been meaning to write and actually will be sending you a catalog of my show that I had in NYC in the fall. With your help I managed to pull off this huge project….And to think that most of those paintings were done AFTER I worked with you!!!” With glowing reviews by a world renown artist, her show was a huge success. She sent us the beautiful catalog from the show. It’s one of our prize possessions.
Meet Alex: Education derailed due to multiple concussions.
We measured the severity of his symptoms before and after ten weeks and 20 sessions of neurofeedback training for brain injury. As you can see from the graph below, Alex’s testing showed improvements in mood, ADHD symptoms, and executive function after 10 weeks of neurofeedback training. Alex went back to college the next semester, graduated with honors, and went off to do graduate study in Europe.
Meet Sam: Gunshot wound to frontal lobe left him with little emotional control
Ten weeks of neurofeedback training for brain injury helped a great deal. Sam’s temper cooled considerably, and his self control increased significantly as measured by psychological tests. Sam liked to joke: it wasn’t that the neurofeedback helped. It’s just that “the drivers got better”.
