Cognitive Optimization Q & A

What cognitive optimization services are available?

You can benefit from a variety of services available for improving your brain function, such as nootropics and brain mapping, as well as CNS Vital Sign technologies to thoroughly analyze your neurocognitive abilities.

These services give you the advantage of unlocking your brain’s performance potential to improve the quality of every aspect of your life.

Nootropics are naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that boost your brain functionality, enhance your learning ability, and protect the brain from physical and chemical damage. Examples of nootropics include omega-3 fatty acids, Cerebrolysin, Aniracetam, and Epitalon.

Brain mapping involves imaging tests that identify which parts of the brain are working too hard, which are dormant, and which structures of the brain are not communicating coherently with others.

You may also benefit from neurofeedback services if you’re seeking solutions to ensure your brain is operating at its peak performance level.

For in-office neurocognitive and behavior assessments, Dr. Paziotopoulos offers innovative CNS Vital Signs, a variety of tools and resources to assess areas like:

  • Motor skills
  • Attention
  • Memory

CNS Vital Signs analyzes more than 50 evidence-based measurements based on a specialized rating scale, providing you and Dr. Paziotopoulos an in-depth view of your functionality and behaviors.

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a gradual, noninvasive training strategy that teaches the brain how to work more efficiently after a full evaluation of how your brain is already functioning. Treatment can be useful for those struggling to perform different tasks after a brain injury, such as a concussion, or due to a natural chemical imbalance.

To achieve optimal results, you may need multiple sessions where you listen to different sounds or play games on a computer screen. During this activity, Dr. Paziotopoulos monitors the electrical activity in your brain through several attached sensors.

Why should I consider cognitive optimization?

While there are many ordinary things you can do throughout the day to improve your cognitive abilities, such as getting good quality sleep and eating right, professional cognitive optimization may be an effective treatment option if you’re looking to reach a higher potential.

With the cognitive optimization resources available, you can truly tap into the power of your brain’s functionality to benefit your personal life, professional life, or academic potential.

You may also benefit from cognitive optimization if you’re recovering from a condition that affects your brain function, such as an illness or injury, that causes learning or memory difficulties.

For people experiencing a decline in brain functionality due to aging, cognitive optimization can help improve your memory and concentration. Treatment may also slow down the progression of age-related brain dysfunction.
