Alpha Brain Wave Training Reverses Brain Aging
One of the early indicators of Aging in the Brain is a slowing of an individual’s dominant Alpha brain wave frequency. Alpha waves are a sinusoidal brain frequency between 8 and 13 cycles per second (Hz). However, when atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) sets in, which can happen as early as one’s 20′s, depending on diet, exercise and genetics, then the frequency of one’s Alpha waves begins to slow. The slowing is about 0.8 Hz for every ten years of life after the onset of atherosclerosis. When the slowing frequency of the Alpha wave drops below the 8 Hz lower bound of the Alpha range, which range is 8-13 Hz, then the person enters senescence or senility and often dies soon thereafter.
Reversing the course of this slowing and diminishing of the Alpha brain waves is one of the ways that Biocybernaut Alpha brain wave training actually reverses aging in the brain. Dr. Hardt has formally researched this reversal of brain aging in a Federally Funded Double Blind University Research Study funded by a large Federal Grant from the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH). The grant was entitled: ANXIETY AND AGING: Intervention with EEG Alpha Feedback. This study was conducted by Dr. Hardt when he was an Assistant Professor of Medical Psychology in the Psychiatry Department at the University of California at San Francisco, Medical Center.
Biocybernaut’s Alpha training helps to develop latent abilities in older people as well as to reverse the effects of aging in their brains. In Dr. Hardt’s Federal grant research study, ANXIETY AND AGING: Intervention with EEG Alpha Feedback, women from 60 well up into their 80’s showed the same pattern of beneficial changes in personality (reductions in anxiety, depression, paranoia, schizophrenia, etc.) as the college-aged males had shown in Dr. Hardt’s earlier research. Measuring personality in the elderly women twice before their Alpha training and then immediately after their Alpha training showed large beneficial personality changes. However, even more incredibly, the data showed that with follow-ups at 6 months after their Alpha training, the older women showed further improvements in their personality profiles. And at follow ups 12 months after their Alpha training, the results were even better. This study had been designed to find out how long the benefits of the Alpha training lasted, and what we found was that even a year after the training had ended, the graduates were still seeing and experiencing continuing improvements. This is indeed a gift that keeps on giving.
