Your Brain on New Things

A decade ago, before I discovered IASIS Microcurrent Neurofeedback, I had to take a dreaded statistics class. I had done well with math in college, I was struggling with post-concussive symptoms. I hadn’t bargained for the fact that statistics is not actually math. I had my first panic attack. It was a challenging course. As I worked through the complex “problems” in the learning center at RCC, I had an unusual response. My brain “turned on” and I started to feel increased focus, euphoria and well-being. Yes, it was still stressful to get through the class, but the net result was that it “rehabbed” my brain. It felt miraculous. Clearly, it wasn’t about statistics.

The clients we are constantly inspired by are the ones that continue to try new things. They continue to renew their interests over a lifetime. Some people may get into a fad for a time, like tango, or CrossFit, and then they move onto something new and different. This is not a bad thing. New activities and routines trigger a release of dopamine, a known pleasure chemical. The more you struggle to learn something, the more your brain will change. This is especially true for physically and mentally challenging activities.

Neurofeedback works by encouraging your beautiful brain to become aware of its stuck patterns. This is analogous to rebooting a computer. Your resilient, flexible patterns will remain and stuckness can subside. Are you ready to challenge yourself for a new beginning?
