Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
The brain has 5 basic functions.
The first functions is processing information. We have 2 different ways of processing information. Consciousness is one level, it can be reported on a subjective level. Consciousness has been filtered for information from the unconscious. At times the unconscious can take control. A good example would be when we are skilled verses unskilled drivers (at times I think that some people are driving on a very unconscious level).
The second function is sending signals. We have 100 billion cells in our brains. About 10% are called neurons. These cells use electrical signals but use chemicals in between the cells called neurotransmitters.
The third function uses what are called modules, different parts of the brain have different functions. (More on that later) And all of these modules are interconnected and work together.
The forth function is individuality. We all have different genes and these are expressed in a unique way. We are also influenced by the environment that we are in.
The fifth function of the brain is plasticity. The brain can strengthen different areas with use, much like a muscle. It can also become more efficient and can process information with this added muscle.
LENS neurofeedback can work with all of these areas of functionality. It is good at helping the brain to heal itself. It uses the plasticity of the brain to bring the damaged areas relief.
