Alternative To Neuroptimal Neurofeedback
I just recently found out about this site, from Longecity forum, and the wonderful discussions that have been going around here.
I noticed some great discussion about neurofeedback and issues that some folks have raised about neuroptimal. Honestly, I've had the same kind of concernts: blackbox, not based on the any peer reviewed publications, limited number of sessions.
On Longecity, someone suggested an alternative and a more affordable alternative to Neuroptimal called Theta Alpha Gamma (TAG) Synchrony by Douglas Dailey.
Based on what I gathered from TAG's website, he's protocol is OPEN and based on various published research paper that he also cites on his blog.
Fundamentally, he's synchronizing the alpha, or theta, and then later, gamma brain waves in 2 different regions of the brain (initially, front and back). This will cause the brain to go through what he calls "phase resets" which, based on the research he cites, is the essential component of addressing imbalances or impacts of various stressors in life.
What attracts me to his protocol are:
- open protocol where the
- based on theoretical foundations consistent with latest neuroscience
- affordable price (it runs on the neurofeedback system that can run Bioexplorer software)
I have not, however, seen anyone talking about their experience with TAG sync and am wondering if anyone has had any experience or insights that can share about it.
