Medha Mind Enhancement Co. (P) Ltd. was established by Mr. N. S. Srinivasan who is a trained brain function analyst.
Medha Mind was started with a three-fold objective.
At Medha Mind, we use a combination of NeuroFeedback and BioFeedback. We specialize in providing customized scientific solutions to a wide range of individuals with different conditions in such a way that we combine the wisdom known from ancient times with the latest in scientific research on the human brain. The objective at all times is to facilitate the normalizing and then optimizing of brain function.
We initially use NeuroField system and follow it up with both contemporary Neurofeedback and Biofeedback devices. We do a 10-day Intensive program at Medha Mind that has proved to be very helpful with the following medical conditions:
The process involves Brain Function Assessment (BFA) and then Brain Function Training (BFT).
The Brain produces electrical potential. Though the voltage is often 1/millionth of a volt, this can be recorded, measured and compared using sophisticated equipment. This is called Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) and is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity, commonly referred to as “brainwaves” and is also termed as “Brain Mapping”.
This multi-channel digital data is statistically analyzed, comparing values with “normative” database. The processed EEG is converted into color topometric maps as well as various tables. This data is used for doing Brain Function Assessment (BFA), which, in turn, is used in Brain Function Training (BFT).
Based on the QEEG, brain function training plans are custom-designed as per individual needs. Based on the individual requirements and the particular issues that need to be addressed, Medha uses a non-invasive brain technique that normalizes brain function. “Normalizing” brain function enables the self-regulatory capability of the brain to adapt to different situations and circumstances by what, in general, is taken as an acceptable behavior in society.
The training program can be a simple, one time 10 day intensive program (for treatment of depression / Anxiety) or it can be a structured program carried on for a couple of years in the case of treatment of Autism, etc.
Sports persons as well as corporate executives also use our brain function training program to achieve Performance enhancement and Peak Performance objectives. These programs can be designed based on either individual needs or on corporate requirements and can be delivered either at specialized locations or at corporate specific locations.
Brain, as we all know, produces electrical potential. Though the voltage is often 1/millionth of a volt this can be recorded, measured and compared using sophisticated equipment. This measure is called Electroencephalography (EEG). EEG is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which reflect cortical activity, and are commonly referred to as “brainwaves”. Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG, and in layman’s terms this sometimes also termed as “Brain Mapping”. The qEEG is an extension of the analysis of the visual EEG interpretation which may assist and even augment our understanding of the EEG and brain function.
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) is a procedure that processes the recorded EEG activity from a multi-electrode recording using a computer. This multi-channel EEG data is processed with various algorithms, such as the “Fourier” classically, Independent Component Analysis (ICA) or in more modern applications “Wavelet” analysis. The digital data is statistically analyzed, sometimes comparing values with “normative” database. The processed EEG is commonly converted into colour maps of brain functioning called “Brain Maps”.
The EEG and the derived qEEG information can be interpreted and used by experts as a clinical tool to evaluate brain function, and to track the changes in brain function due to various interventions such as Brain Function Training (Neurofeedback) or improve quality of Medication.
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) processing techniques and the use of modern analytic software to processes the EEG/qEEG gives us the ability to view the dynamic changes taking place throughout the brain during cognitive processing tasks, and this novel approach can be used to assist us in determining which areas of the brain are engaged & processing efficiently, and those that need enhancement.
Various analytic approaches exist, from commercial databases to database free approaches, such as EEG phenotype analysis or the more classic European Vigilance model of Bente (1964) are used in modern clinical application of the EEG/qEEG. The use of advanced techniques such as Independent Component Analysis (ICA) and neuro-imaging techniques such as Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography (LORETA) can map the actual sources of the cortical rhythms. These advanced approaches are changing our understanding of the dynamics and function of the human brain.
People have behavioural, emotional, relationship, and academic issues. We help them resolve these issues by using a non-invasive brain technique that normalizes brain function.
‘Normalizing’ brain function refers to the self-regulatory capability of the brain to adapt to different situations and circumstances. It is measurable. Read more about this in this blog post.
What is Brain Function Training?
Brain Function Training is the process of ‘training and retraining’ the brain to adapt and be flexible to internal and external challenges.
Based on more than 12 years of clinical experience under the eagle-eyed mentorship of Dr. Barry Sterman and his dedicated colleagues, Medha has custom-designed individual programs for people with Special Needs, Students, Sports Persons and Corporate Personnel to initially Normalize, then learn to Optimize, Brain Function. When they can do this, striving for Peak Performance becomes the goal to aspire for.
The Subjective Questionnaire:
Medha’s unique path-breaking Subjective Questionnaire has been specially designed to assess internal brain function by mapping behaviour to activation in different functional areas of the brain. This helps in finding the probable areas that are malfunctioning and deciding what can be reasonably done to ‘normalize’ brain function to help those with any abnormality. Our questionnaire can be administered online and customized to different client needs.
Filling out a questionnaire like this will help us understand which areas in the brain are dysregulated, resulting in particular behaviours. [Read More...]
