The Human Brain can Heal

Neuroplasticity: The brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment

Norman Doidge: Brain's Healing Energies.  Published on Apr 7, 2015
For a very long time scientists thought the brain was an organ beyond treatment. If something went wrong or if one was born with a deficit, the conclusion was "tough luck." Not so anymore. There are revolutionary techniques that can alleviate anything from chronic pain to Parkinson's disease or Down syndrome. Dr. Norman Doidge lays it out in his book "The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity." He'll discuss this, and more, with Steve Paikin.

Dr. Norman Doidge believes the way we think about brains is wrong, and more research could unlock innovative treatments to serious disorders.

Helius Medical Technologies, How They’re Helping the Brain Heal Itself
Phillippe Deschamps, President and CEO of Helius Medical Technologies talks about the companies focus on unique, noninvasive platform technologies and working to expand treatment options for patients by amplifying the brain’s ability to heal itself.


How they’re helping the brain heal itself

The PoNS Noninvasive Device been studied for 20yrs with very positive results no side effects, but still not available Why? A: Its all about money not healing people, shame on them!

Right now, almost every one of the PoNS devices are in the hands of the U.S. Military, which is doing a study of its use for treating traumatic brain injury in veterans, and with researchers, elsewhere, including at the Montreal Neurological Institute, which is studying the device with Multiple Sclerosis patients. The PoNS is not expected to be more available in the USA or Canada until about December 2016, Australia the first half of 2017. This is an estimate. To find out more, contact the Tactile Communication and Neurorehabiliation Lab that developed it.


Also: Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't been effective.

Hacking the Brain: Neuroenhancement with Noninvasive Brain Stimulation

Noninvasive brain stimulation technologies have exploded in popularity over recent years.

Technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) have been shown to effectively improve numerous neurological functions, including cognitive skills, motor ability, and mood. Though these improvements have frequently been intended for those with disabilities, studies have shown that these technologies can instill similar improvements in healthy individuals.

The prospect of using noninvasive brain stimulation for neuroenhancement in healthy individuals generates a host of ethical questions: What constitutes normal versus impaired ability? Which neurological functions can be ethically improved, and which, if any, should remain unchanged? What are the possible detriments of noninvasive brain stimulation? And with these technologies rapidly growing, what does a future of commonplace neuroenhancement look like?
