Sleep is essential for cognition, concentration, performance and overall wellness, including brain health. Deep, restful sleep enables harmful beta amyloid proteins – waste products that are found in fluid between brain cells — to be cleared from the brain, preventing a buildup that is linked to cognition disorders.
For those suffering with insomnia or disruptive sleep, these naturally occurring proteins become toxic, as they accumulate and clump together to form plaques between neurons, disrupting cell function. Researchers have found individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease, a type of dementia that destroys memory and reasoning skills and affects behavior, have higher concentrations of these plaques in the hippocampus, the area of the brain responsible for memory.
Neurofeedback brain-wave training can help the brain regulate more efficiently, to improve sleep disturbances and achieve healthy, restful sleep that enables the “brain washing” cleansing process.
