Navigating the Areas of Your Brain

Have you ever wondered how our brain, the control center of our body, operates? Our brain has two halves, the right and the left. The right side manages the left part of our body, while the left side oversees the right. If something happens to the right side of the brain, it might affect how the left arm and leg move, what's seen on the left, and hearing in the left ear. Similarly, if there's an issue on the left side of the brain, it could impact talking and moving on the right side of the body. 

In this blog post, let's take a simple look into the anatomy of brain structure and function to understand how its different parts work together and explore ways to target each part of the brain to boost cognitive potential.

 

Understanding our Brain Structure

In most cases, the left side of the brain handles talking and language, while the right side deals with non-talking things like spatial skills. There are four lobes in each half of the brain, also, essential components of the brain include the cerebellum and the brain stem, each with its distinct parts. 

The cerebellum is a vital component in the human brain as it plays a role in motor movement regulation and balance control while the brainstem is responsible for many vital functions of life, such as breathing, consciousness, blood pressure, heart rate, and sleep. Each of the brain hemispheres and lobes, cerebellum, and brain stem has specific functions, and they all work together [1]. If one side gets injured, it might affect the opposite side of our body.

Our goal is to maintain every part of the brain healthy. Unfortunately, the brain is susceptible to various disorders falling into three main categories: traumatic events (such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, and global ischemia), degenerative diseases (including dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's), and psychiatric disorders (like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder) [2].

 

Light therapy and brain entrainment for the different brain regions

Given the challenges posed by these issues, individuals are actively seeking new avenues to address them. This has led to the increasing popularity of light therapy, or photobiomodulation, as there are studies suggesting that applying light to the brain may be beneficial for a variety of seemingly diverse problems, improving cognitive enhancement in healthy individuals. [2]

In response to this growing interest, Neuronic introduced on the market the Neuradiant 1070 — a transcranial photobiomodulation device distinguished by its 4-quadrant feature. This device allows you to have a custom protocol targeting specific brain regions: front, left, right, and back. Furthermore, the device offers customization options, letting you adjust time, pulse rate, and intensity.

Considering the crucial role of cognitive diversity in achieving optimal brain function, our device's 4-quadrant feature enables a nuanced approach to brainwave modulation. This is made possible by the ability to pulse light with varying rates and intensities tailored to each specific brain region, as you can see in the image below:

In sync with this, our consultation service ensures a comprehensive experience. Upon obtaining a qEEG, our experts analyze and tailor a customizable protocol to optimize the device settings for your unique brain regions. This seamless integration of cutting-edge technology and personalized consultation underscores Neuronic's commitment to unlocking the full potential of every person’s brain.
