Pros and Cons of latest wearable tech trend: Mood-altering electrical brain stimulation

Pros and Cons of latest wearable tech trend: Mood-altering electrical brain stimulation | Neurofeedback | Scoop.it

Elec­tri­cal brain stim­u­la­tion moves from lab to home, experts wary (CBC radio):

“Zap­ping your brain to adjust your mood may sound like the stuff of sci­ence fic­tion, or a campy B movie.

But Anna Wexler is a real life grad stu­dent at the Mass­a­chus­sets Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, demon­strat­ing a real, com­mer­cially avail­able device she bought for less than $300…The prod­uct, what sci­en­tists call “tran­scra­nial direct cur­rent stim­u­la­tion”, is meant to alter mood. Sim­i­lar prod­ucts are being mar­keted on the promise to improve your cog­ni­tion, and even make the wearer smarter. And as they become avail­able for home use, experts are still strug­gling with what to think of this new, wear­able tech trend.”

Promise of deep-brain stimulation for depression encourages research into other mental illnesses

Promise of deep-brain stimulation for depression encourages research into other mental illnesses | Neurofeedback | Scoop.it
“ A procedure that treats depression by using electrodes implanted deep in the brain won’t be available to the public soon, says the researcher who pioneered the procedure more than a decade ago with a team at the University of Toronto.”

Meditation and Neurofeedback

Meditation and Neurofeedback | Neurofeedback | Scoop.it
This paper discusses how machine assisted programs such as neurofeedback may help individuals develop their meditation practice more rapidly. Methods such as neurofeedback incorporate real-time feedback of electro-encephalography (EEG) activity to teach self-regulation, and may be potentially used as an aid for meditation. "These technologies would be not only for people who have taken interest in these kinds of practices or people who have already established themselves in a meditative practice, but for people who are looking for new methods to train, improve and develop attention and emotion regulation. We want to emphasize that neurofeedback should be used as an aid to meditation while people perform their meditation and not as a replacement to meditation, and that while these devices may aid and assist those in their meditative practices, the goal of these practices themselves is ultimately the decrease of reliance on objects and constructs that provide support. This type of research should also integrate neurophenomenological approaches that take into account first-person reports of subjective experience in conjunction with the experimental investigation of brain activity. Real time feedback of brain activity as implemented in neurofeedback may help develop new frameworks for the scientific investigation of embodied consciousness and the interactions between mind and body."
