Autonomic Nervous System

What Is The Autonomic Nervous System? The autonomic nervous system regulates involuntary functions of the human body, such as breathing and digestion.Through our senses, we are constantly assessing our environment and automatically sending information to the brain where the brain instantaneously elicits appropriate changes throughout the body.The autonomic nervous system has two divisions – sympathetic and parasympathetic.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: The autonomic nervous system doesn’t differentiate between real danger and psychological stress. Neuropeak Pro can help you train your brain to decrease your sympathetic nervous system response allowing your body to properly manage everyday stress, which promotes better focus, memory, and creativity.

Breathing

Breathing And The Brain: Oxygen intake is an important factor that allows for the brain to function optimally. Additionally, oxygen intake influences how the autonomic nervous system manages brain and body’s response to our environment. Each lung has over 300 million tiny air sacs, called alveoli, through which the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Rapid and shallow breaths interface with only a small percentage of alveoli. All the systems of the body are connected, and respiratory inefficiency can also severely impact the heart.

 
 
 
 

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Learning to breath in a more effective away can increase oxygen intake and widen heart rate variability, improving the heart’s adaptability to the change. Neuropeak Pro breathing and coherence training uses breathing techniques that allow the autonomic nervous system, specifically the heart and lungs, to adjust to environmental stressors with greater flexibility.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin breathing training.

Coherence

What Is Coherence? Coherence is an indication of how efficiently the heart and lungs are working together. Coherence comes from the term ‘coherent breathing’, which is a form of breathing that can lower the workload on your heart and increase your heart rate variability

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Managing stress allows your body to respond appropriately and with ease, according to the actual environment. Neuropeak Pro breathing and coherence training focuses on training the rate, symmetry, and amplitude of breathing for optimal functioning to improve heart and lung efficiency.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin coherence training.

Neurofeedback

What Equipment Is Used For Neurofeedback? The brain is an electrical organ. An EEG (electroencephalogram) is used to assess the electrical activity of the brain at multiple locations to determine where improvements can be made.

How Neurofeedback Works: Neurofeedback training is rooted in neuroplasticity, which means the brain’s ability to rewire itself to function at its peak. Training is driven by the efficiency of the brain’s electrical activity. If the efficiency of the brain is optimal, it will receive positive reinforcement. If the efficiency of the brain becomes less than optimal, it will receive a negative punishment, like the pause of a movie. Over time, the brain learns from the positive reinforcements to become more balance and resilient.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Neuropeak Pro neurofeedback training regulates the brain’s electrical activity during the simple activity of watching a movie. Training provides many benefits; both during the day by improving focus, attention and creativity, and during the night by improving neurological recovery during sleep. If the efficiency of the brain is improved, so are its functions, including hormone regulation, memory consolidation, and mental performance.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin neurofeedback training.
