Approximately five million people in theĀ Super Memory Formula Review United States live with some type of disability resulting from traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Sadly, it is reported that an additional 1.5 million annually will experience some degree of TBI. Of those, about 80,000 end up on long-term disability and 50,000 die. Most brain injuries are directly related to car accidents, although serious falls are also a potential risk. Because of these vast numbers, experts estimate that some $49 billion are spent every year for treatment.

Although the consequences of traumatic brain injury would depend on the situation and person, the most common effects involve psychological and cognitive functioning. This means that the person's ability to reason, solve problems, or concentrate become challenged. Along with these, other problems develop, including depression, fatigue, irritation, and lack of motivation, which is understandable. Not only has the life of the person with TBI been disrupted, but family members and friends are also affected.

Because traumatic brain injury is a serious and growing problem, new studies are continually being conducted to try to gain a better understanding of how the brain is impacted, as well as what new treatments or therapies are available to help. One that has gained serious focus is neurofeedback, specifically the QEEG, which stands for Quantitative Electroencephalogram. QEEG is a diagnostic tool that has taken the traditional EEG signal and digitized it. Therefore, rather than having the findings of the assessment being printed on paper, information is captured electronically and saved where it can then be analyzed via computer.

The benefit of using QEEG specifically for traumatic brain injury is that the patient's brainwaves can be replicated at a future date and then reviewed but also compared to a database of other people without brain injury to determine weaknesses or areas of the brain that are not responding or processing normally. This information is valuable for neurofeedback therapists in that they can then zero in on the type of training the patient needs so the connection between mind and body can be reestablished.
