Performance Enhancement Q & A

What is brain performance enhancement?

Brain enhancement takes advantage of your brain’s continuous ability to change, a quality called neuroplasticity. Dr. Asif uses neurotechnology to trigger new nerve connections, boost neurotransmitters, and improve brain activity in tightly focused dysfunctional areas.

The process begins by rebuilding the malfunctioning areas of your brain, then continues with neuroenhancement to reach beyond a well-balanced brain and achieve the flexibility you need to maintain optimal emotional and behavioral health.

How is brain performance enhancement achieved?

Enhancing your brain begins with gathering information to evaluate your current brain performance. You undergo a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG), which uses electrodes to detect brain waves, then creates a map of your brain activity. Your QEEG report provides information about your brain’s unique firing patterns, which brain areas may be underactive, and what the results mean for your overall wellness.

You also talk with Dr. Asif so he can learn about problems or symptoms you experience, concerns you may have about your mental health, and your goals for brain optimization. Then he develops a treatment plan using cutting-edge technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, neurofeedback, and infrared therapies. Whether used alone or together, these neuroscience-based treatments safely and effectively trigger nerve activity, promote new nerve connections, and improve brain function.
