Title is not mine, it is written by Daniel Wagner, Zengar NeurOptimal® French Representative & Instructor, while publishing a study: Effects of NeurOptimal Training on Alzheimer’s Disease. Report on an ongoing research in France.
Like Dr.Och in the beginnings also he mention a struggle that is necessary for people within the neuroscience to adopt new knowledge and patterns of thinking.
Next importan are delta sleep cycles, the brain gathers neuron waste during the day, because people sleep bad a link has been found between bad sleep and neuron waste build up over time, which means if the brain is not flushed / cleansed during the night in deep sleep cycles, it could lead to Alzheimer's and Dementia issues later in life.
To train brains you can only boost and GUIDE nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents.
And charging $3850 for 25 sessions is not a solution.
Someone in the world develops dementia every 3 seconds. There were an estimated 46.8 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2015 and this number is believed to be close to 50 million people in 2017. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 75 million in 2030 and 131.5 million in 2050. Much of the increase will be in developing countries. Already 58% of people with dementia live in low and middle income countries, but by 2050 this will rise to 68%. The fastest growth in the elderly population is taking place in China, India, and their south Asian and western Pacific neighbours.
Imagine revolution when easing Alzheimer's symptoms will be a thing of $159 per head, not $3850?
100 Million patients x $159 is $15,900,000,000, 16 Billions!
And that is a market for you! Wearable one.
