Date:1/30/2013

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the infusion of an additional $1 million of financial support from The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation, Inc., Atlanta, Ga., Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center researchers are expanding their studies using a noninvasive, drugless therapy that may help to mitigate symptoms associated with a list of neurological conditions.

High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring HIRREM or, as it's commercially known, Brainwave Optimization™ (a product created by Brain State Technologies, LLC, Scottsdale, Ariz.), is a noninvasive procedure that uses a computerized system designed to reflect the brain's frequencies back to itself using musical tones.  Resonance between the musical tones and the electrical circuits in a person's brain can bring balance to the two hemispheres of the brain and has shown reduced symptoms in a recent pilot study* of people with insomnia.

Previous seed funding from The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation, Inc., in 2011 and 2012, $729,000, supported the creation of the research program at Wake Forest Baptist directed by lead investigator Charles H. Tegeler, M.D., McKinney-Avant Professor of Neurology, director of Telestroke Services, and director of the Ward A. Riley Ultrasound Center, and his team. This new funding allows further study of HIRREM targeting four conditions, in specific populations. These projects will focus on use with the military for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), insomnia, and depression,
