Elizabeth, age 35, mother of an active two year old, had had problems with anxiety since the age of 17. She came to the Center for Brain Training suffering from anxiety and up to five panic attacks a day. She said they were “taking over” her life. She was also suffering from mild depression and was on an antidepressant.
There are two days in Dennis Riordon’s memory that changed his world forever. The first occurred in 2008 when the man he had been evaporated on an operating table during a routine procedure. The second was in January of 2017 when he made his way to the Center for Brain Training and regained his dignity and his life.

I’m amazed by the power of Bradley’s neurofeedback training. It’s been incredible, a miracle. I want to tell my son’s story because I believe everyone should know what neurofeedback can do.
When “Bradley” was an infant he suffered brain damage after going into a diabetic coma in his crib.
“Watching Greg return to his daily activities and hearing him say he feels so much calmer is a relief. He’s now able to focus on coping skills that keep him from spiraling into a panic attack.”
Sixteen-year-old Greg had been anxious most of his life, but he got worse by the time he entered high school.
Four-year-old David was out of control, constantly seeking attention, causing disruption in the home and in danger of physically harming his siblings. Six months after doing regular neurofeedback training with an at-home system, he is calm at home, follows directions, plays nicely with his siblings, socializes with other children, and is a model child in pre-kindergarten.
After eight sessions my son was less prone to anger and emotional outbursts, more communicative and calmer. He now spends his free time working on cars (and not playing video games). He and I have more of a normal father-son relationship. I’m amazed by the power of Bradley’s neurofeedback training. It’s been incredible, a miracle.
You may feel like you haven’t been sleeping well since the pandemic hit, and statistics say you’re not alone. Researchers have even coined a name for it: “coronasomnia.” That’s the wide-spread increase in sleepless nights and disturbed slumber that has spread over every age group during the past year.
Humans are most vulnerable to sleep deprivation in early March, as they transition from Standard Time to DST. One study found that the average person receives 40 minutes less sleep on the Monday after “springing forward” compared to other nights of the year. Researchers have also noted negative effects that occur during the transition from DST to Standard Time in November.
As COVID-19 sweeps through populations of every country in the world, scientists are learning yet another unhappy fact about what this stealthy organism is leaving in its wake. Not only does the virus leave the body of many of its victims compromised, but it’s having serious, and long-term effects, on the brain and nervous systems of some people.
