[Podcast] Ep 26: The Science of ADD and ADHD

In this episode I speak with returning guest Dr. Michael Mark, a neuropsychologist and co-founder of NeuroEdge Inc, a brain treatment center in Southern California. We discuss the science behind how the brain functions in those with ADD and ADHD, the short and long term effects of medications and stimulants like Ritalin and Adderall, why less people are actually ADD than they think, and how the brain really isn’t capable of multitasking the way we think.… Read more...

[Podcast] Ep18: The Science of Anxiety and Depression

We talk about these concepts at the biological, chemical, and neuroelectrical levels, and more importantly, we discuss treatment protocols that go well beyond “popping pills.”

[Podcast] Ep 10: Optimizing Brain Function with Neurofeedback

In this episode I speak with Dr. Michael Mark, a neuropsychologist and the co-founder of NeuroEdge Inc, a brain treatment center in Southern California. We talk about different types of neurofeedback, biofeedback, and BCIT (Brain Computer Interface Training), understanding cognitive function at the electrical, neural, and chemicals levels, and most importantly, how to quantitatively measure brain function and improve it.… Read more...
