Scientists Describe Breakthrough Technology for Brain Self-Optimization in Newly Published Paper
Date:2/6/2013

sed on a model of biology that sees change itself as the only constant. Biological systems must calibrate their functional setpoints to meet and anticipate constantly changing demands, rather than fixate on constant standards of output.

The allostasis model highlights that the key role of the brain is to allocate energetic resources among different organ systems, to optimize fitness for the individual as a whole. When functioning well, the brain will anticipate needs and adjust operations to optimize fitness for life. It is important above all that the brain not become “stuck” at any given state of functioning. In the allostasis model, brain functioning can become “stuck” due to chronic stress or trauma.

According to Brain State Technologies Chief Executive Officer, Lee Gerdes, to his knowledge the new paper is the first in any literature to describe methodology for a precision-guided intervention for allostatic therapeutics. As such, Brainwave Optimization is a way to help the brain to optimize its own functioning, by using detailed and continuously updated information about its own functioning, so that the brain can help itself become “unstuck.” Thus, Brainwave Optimization is different from earlier-generation EEG feedback technologies which aim to train the person to consciously control their brain function. It is also different from pharmacological approaches that can limit the system’s dynamic range, can be undermined by the brain’s compensatory mechanisms, and may be associated with side effects.

The allostasis model predicts that optimization of brain functioning will support optimization of functioning for all organ systems, and thus Brainwave Optimization may have roles for a variety of health challenges. For example, blood pressure is directly mediated by factors related to the heart, blood vessels, and blood volume, but ultimately all these are guided by brain activity.
