Have “youve been” wondered what happens to the traumatized psyche when a soldier comes back from battle? Often what’s seen is that with each deployment, the frontal lobe becomes slower. This means that veterans cannot pay attention to what is in front of them, uttering it hard to engage in day-to-day life. Yet when a soldier has show to frightening affairs, such as a strident and rapid tone, their frontal lobe comes online. At the end, when someone is traumatized and not knowing danger, the psyche doesn’t function. But when the same person ability danger, the intelligence has been cabled to act as a specialist in dealing with danger.
This is where modern engineering, such as quantitative EEGs, comes into play. An EEG is essentially a ability delineating structure that can show you the active cabling of the ability. When someone is getting an EEG, this technology will measure the brainwaves at the back of their brain – the section of the brain that is set to expect danger.
If the EEG picks up fast brain waves that resemble damage, what we can do is rewire the ability. Whenever a traumatized person moves gentle, relaxed, and calm tides in their brain, they’ll get a reward. With this technology, we are today can shape the psyche to have a different configuration and different wiring, so it’s no longer set to expect danger, but it’s set to be open to new knowledge. This is called Neural feedback.
