"Threats Real or Imagined Cause the Brain to Grow Concerned"
"Panic Makes the Brain More Active and Mental Energy Reserves can Become Depleted"
Our Point of View
Concern is a natural function of the brain that facilitates the management of threats and potential threats. The threats can be actual or simply imagined! The brain manages the fear associated with these threats by using mental energy to either dodge the threat or face it head-on with confidence. When a brain finds itself low on MENTAL ENERGY, concern rises. When concern rises rapidly to a high level in a short period of time, the brain begins to fear that it is LOSING CONTROL. The fear leads to more mental activity that requires more mental energy. This feeling attached to fear is often called a panic attack. What is needed is sufficient mental energy to retake control of the fear and bring it under CONTROL. Sleep is generally disrupted in the time period following PANIC and mental fatigue rises.
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor these brains to learn to be functionally efficient in order to build up the mental energy reserves necessary to support good quality sleep. Neurofeedback is an assistive technology process that teaches brains to function efficiently. Sleep improves, mental energy reserves build and the brain gains back it’s control over the fear that fuels panic.
