Note that:
1) These rejuvenating physical and functional neurological
changes are coordinated, in what we interpret to be a new
‘blastic’ (growth) phase induced by this training.
2) This broad-scale ‘reversal’ (‘rejuvenation’) is achieved by
applying relatively simple form of intensive behavioral training
that engage both ’bottom-up’ and ‘top-down’ brain-system
processes.
3) There is substantial generalization beyond directly trained
sensory-perceptual systems, for at least some aspects of these
physical and functional changes.
4) Although studies are less complete, we record at least many of
these changes after training animals that had a grossly
degraded and delayed ‘childhood development’.
You train it.
Nota bene: Of course neurological rejuvenation will only be
achieved with particular forms of training.
How do you turn an
old (or
developmentally
impaired) brain into a
(physically and
functionally) more
capable one?
How do you turn a brain in the prime of life into an old
one?
Just
add
noise.

It’s
ALL
Plastic.
Major ’transferred’ benefits of a limited ‘dose’ of UFOV
training (a speeded divided attention task) in ACTIVE
(initial age circa 74)
1) Quicker reaction times and safer on-road driving (Roenker et al.,
2004).
2) Sustained safer and more confident driving; sustained mobility
(Edwards et al., 2009).
3) Sustained reduction in at-fault crashes (Ball et al., 2010).
4) Retained driving mobility up to ten years (Edwards, Myers et al.,
2009; Edwards, Delahunt et al., 2009; Ross et al., 2014, 2016).
5) Long-sustained improvements in everyday functional abilities
(Edwards et al., 2002; 2005; Ball et al., 2002; Lin et al., 2016).
Generalized benefits of a limited ’dose’ of
training on a divided-attention SOP task…
6) Prevention of MDD onset (Wolinsky et al., 2009; 2010).
7) Greater “internal locus of control”, better self-rated health,
improved quality of life over 5 years (Wolinsky et al., 2008; 2009;
2010).
8) Lower medical costs (Wolinsky et al., 2010).
9) More modest decline in everyday functional abilities across 10
years (Rebok et al., 2014).
10)Training-‘dose’-dependent protection against
dementia onset (Edwards, Unverzagt et al., 2016).
What changes, then, when the brain struggles in its old age?
Everything.
What can be reversed, by training?
Everything?
How difficult IS it, to reverse the course of change?
It’s easy.
CAN such training in humans delay/block the
progression to dementia/AD?
Apparently (and to us, unsurprisingly), yes.
This science provides a clear basis for
MANAGING brain health.

Brewer et al Drug and Alcohol Dependence (2011)
Working hypothesis
• Hypothesis: MT works by decoupling
craving and behavior (e.g. smoking)
• Prediction: should see dissociation
between craving and smoking
BEFORE they both subside
–i.e. should still have some craving,
but it is not coupled to smoking
Craving and cigarette use become
dissociated during treatment

Eat Right Now®
• 28 days of training to break the
stress/emotional eating habit loop
• “Stress test”
– Differentiate hunger from stress,
boredom etc.
• In-the-moment exercises
• Online community
– Peer and expert support
www.goeatrightnow.com
What's most interesting to me, is how we
define the rewards. In the past, the reward of
eating right has been weight loss. But it was
more often than not short lived because I
hadn't made real process changes in my daily
life. Here it feels like the reward is defined
differently, and weight loss is a side effect.
The reward here is, for lack of a better
expression, a more balanced life or inner
peace.

ELECTROENCEPHALOGRA
PHY (EEG)
➤ What is EEG?
➤ Ability to gather real-time, contextual information on
the brain
➤ Importance of spatial resolution:
Detecting activity across the main cortices of the brain is
crucial to obtaining high-quality data
➤ EMOTIV offers 2 mobile EEG systems which offers
whole brain sensing
EMOTIV
PLATFORM➤ The accuracy of our technology has been validated by
independent studies many times over. The graphs show a
direct comparison with a clinical grade system (titled
‘Research’) costing $60000 along side the EMOTIV EPOC at
$799 (titled ‘Gaming’)
➤ Over 1,600 research papers referencing the technology. More
than 70,000 users across 120 countries
➤ Analyzing over 6.1B data points to derive insights across a
range of performance metrics
YOUR BRAIN ON
NATURE
➤ National Geographic study to investigate how imagery
of different natural biomes, urban environments,
natural & pollution threats and computer-simulated
nature impacts the brain as measured by EEG.
➤ Nature promotes neural activity present during
relaxation but is different from relaxation states
achieved during mindfulness, suggesting a neural
marker for a relaxed attentive state. Exposure to nature
can improve executive function & attention while also
lowering physiological and cognitive stress.
➤ National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dan Raven-
Ellison walks across all of the UK’s 69 cities and 15
national parks to show why sustainable cities need wild
spaces as well as smart technology. With EPOC sensors
recording his brain activity while walking across 1500km
over several months, collecting data to help illustrate
how landscape influences our mood, health, and
happiness. Results at:

MENTAL
PERFORMANCE
DURING DRIVING➤ EMOTIV is collaborating with INFINITI Middle East in an
innovative study to identify and measure the brain activity of
individuals driving the recently launched INFINITI Q50 Red Sport
400.
➤ In this study, customers around the region will have the
opportunity to drive the Q50 Red Sport 400 wearing the
EMOTIV Insight headsets that will measure their mental
performance indicators to characterize their driving experience.
The study aims to demonstrate how the changes in brain
activity when driving the powerful sports sedan can affect their
enjoyment, excitement, engagement and focus.

  • 8. Note that: 1) These rejuvenating physical and functional neurological changes are coordinated, in what we interpret to be a new ‘blastic’ (growth) phase induced by this training. 2) This broad-scale ‘reversal’ (‘rejuvenation’) is achieved by applying relatively simple form of intensive behavioral training that engage both ’bottom-up’ and ‘top-down’ brain-system processes. 3) There is substantial generalization beyond directly trained sensory-perceptual systems, for at least some aspects of these physical and functional changes. 4) Although studies are less complete, we record at least many of these changes after training animals that had a grossly degraded and delayed ‘childhood development’.
  • 9. You train it. Nota bene: Of course neurological rejuvenation will only be achieved with particular forms of training. How do you turn an old (or developmentally impaired) brain into a (physically and functionally) more capable one?
  • 10. How do you turn a brain in the prime of life into an old one? Just add noise. Zhou et al, 2011, J Neurosci 31:5625
  • 11. Before training After training TRAINING on BrainHQ.com’s ”Double Decision” exercise. Speeded multi-tasking (UFOV) N=3854 performance age It’s ALL Plastic.
  • 12. Major ’transferred’ benefits of a limited ‘dose’ of UFOV training (a speeded divided attention task) in ACTIVE (initial age circa 74) 1) Quicker reaction times and safer on-road driving (Roenker et al., 2004). 2) Sustained safer and more confident driving; sustained mobility (Edwards et al., 2009). 3) Sustained reduction in at-fault crashes (Ball et al., 2010). 4) Retained driving mobility up to ten years (Edwards, Myers et al., 2009; Edwards, Delahunt et al., 2009; Ross et al., 2014, 2016). 5) Long-sustained improvements in everyday functional abilities (Edwards et al., 2002; 2005; Ball et al., 2002; Lin et al., 2016).
  • 13. Generalized benefits of a limited ’dose’ of training on a divided-attention SOP task… 6) Prevention of MDD onset (Wolinsky et al., 2009; 2010). 7) Greater “internal locus of control”, better self-rated health, improved quality of life over 5 years (Wolinsky et al., 2008; 2009; 2010). 8) Lower medical costs (Wolinsky et al., 2010). 9) More modest decline in everyday functional abilities across 10 years (Rebok et al., 2014). 10)Training-‘dose’-dependent protection against dementia onset (Edwards, Unverzagt et al., 2016).
  • 14. What changes, then, when the brain struggles in its old age? Everything. What can be reversed, by training? Everything? How difficult IS it, to reverse the course of change? It’s easy. CAN such training in humans delay/block the progression to dementia/AD? Apparently (and to us, unsurprisingly), yes. This science provides a clear basis for MANAGING brain health.

  • 35. What's most interesting to me, is how we define the rewards. In the past, the reward of eating right has been weight loss. But it was more often than not short lived because I hadn't made real process changes in my daily life. Here it feels like the reward is defined differently, and weight loss is a side effect. The reward here is, for lack of a better expression, a more balanced life or inner peace. “ “ Eat Right Now member

  • 60. EMOTIV PLATFORM➤ The accuracy of our technology has been validated by independent studies many times over. The graphs show a direct comparison with a clinical grade system (titled ‘Research’) costing $60000 along side the EMOTIV EPOC at $799 (titled ‘Gaming’) ➤ Over 1,600 research papers referencing the technology. More than 70,000 users across 120 countries ➤ Analyzing over 6.1B data points to derive insights across a range of performance metrics
  • 61. YOUR BRAIN ON NATURE ➤ National Geographic study to investigate how imagery of different natural biomes, urban environments, natural & pollution threats and computer-simulated nature impacts the brain as measured by EEG. ➤ Nature promotes neural activity present during relaxation but is different from relaxation states achieved during mindfulness, suggesting a neural marker for a relaxed attentive state. Exposure to nature can improve executive function & attention while also lowering physiological and cognitive stress. ➤ National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dan Raven- Ellison walks across all of the UK’s 69 cities and 15 national parks to show why sustainable cities need wild spaces as well as smart technology. With EPOC sensors recording his brain activity while walking across 1500km over several months, collecting data to help illustrate how landscape influences our mood, health, and happiness.
