The brain is a sophisticated organ, and its health and functioning is vital for our overall well being. This podcast examines the dynamic interactions between the brain and body, and how they profoundly influence each other, along with the biological, psychological, and social forces that impact both. We will speak with experts from diverse backgrounds to hear how they incorporate their understanding of this brain-body connection into their work. We will dive into a variety of topics from anxiety and depression to performance and ADHD with a focus on how neurofeedback, biofeedback, QEEG, and talk therapy can be used to address these issues. Hosted by Dr. Saul Rosenthal, a psychologist who specializes in brain-body health, this podcast Healthy Brain, Happy Body, is brought to you by the Northeast Region Biofeedback Society. Join us as we examine the three pound mass of 85 billion neurons and 125 trillion connections that makes each of us who we are - the brain!

He also flips the script a bit when he asks me what it’s like showing up day after day for my clients.

You may have seen or heard him at industry conferences, webinars, or if you ever had in-depth question about biofeedback and neurofeedback applications for Thought Technology.
    During this episode, we discuss the evu TPS, a portable device that measures heart rate variability, skin conductance, and temperature. It’s easy to use, there are iOS and Android apps for it, and it serves as the hardware component of the Group Synergy program Jon discusses.
    Jon welcomes your comments, thoughts, and ideas for new features at jonbale@thoughttechnology.com.
