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.
