A Pilot Treatment Study for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Neuroimaging Changes Detected by Meg After Low-Intensity Pulse-Based Transcranial Electrical Stimulation
Brain Injury & Micro Current Neurofeedback
Background: Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a leading cause of sustained impairments in military service members, Veterans, and civilians. However, few treatments are available for mTBI, partially because the mechanism of persistent mTBI deficits is not fully understood.
Methods: We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate neuronal changes in individuals with mTBI following a passive neurofeedback-based treatment programme called IASIS MCN. This programme involved applying low-intensity pulses using transcranial electrical stimulation (LIP-tES) with electroencephalography monitoring. Study participants included six individuals with mTBI and persistent postconcussive symptoms (PCS). MEG exams were performed at baseline and follow-up to evaluate the effect of IASIS MCN on brain functioning.
Results: At the baseline MEG exam, all participants had abnormal slow-waves. In the follow-up MEG exam, the participants showed significantly reduced abnormal slow-waves with an average reduction of 53.6 ± 24.6% in slow-wave total score. The participants also showed significant reduction of PCS scores after IASIS MCN treatment, with an average reduction of 52.76 ± 26.4% in PCS total score.
Conclusions: The present study demonstrates, for the first time, the neuroimaging-based documentation of the effect of LIP-tES treatment on brain functioning in mTBI. The mechanisms of LIP-tES treatment are discussed, with an emphasis on LIP-tES’s potentiation of the mTBI healing process.

What People Are Saying About Micro Current Neurofeedback
My son Caelum suffers from TBI. After the first 2 sessions with MCN we saw a decrease in outbursts by over 50%. His focus is better too. Those results are being sustained. It’s non-invasive and you are seeing the results consistently. Take a look at the possibilities for your own child and see what kind of wonderful things they can experience with MCN.AnnemarieI wasn’t get better. I had poor balance and was exhausted. After 2 or 3 sessions I began to realize I was getting my balance back and I could sleep better at night. Many of things I had as complaints from TBI we’re getting better. Definitely do it!Joan
"We've spent tens of thousands of dollars and tried everything - nothing's worked. He needs medication to sleep every night, is defiant in school and we were desperate. After the very first Iasis session, Konnor slept through the night without any medication. His teachers commented, "Konnor is helpful and attentive."KonnorAndrew Clark was an Army Paratrooper having served in Iraq who returned home with severe PTSD, TBI, anxiety and depression. After 10 years living as a "shut in," uncomfortable stepping foot on the world, he experienced Iasis MCN and it changed his life. Says Andrew Clark, "I'm back in the game...living life."Andrew
Micro Current Neurofeedback is Safe and Effective!
