Primary prevention program against neurocognitive decline.
How does our prevention program work against neurocognitive decline?
When aging, cognitive functions can stay almost stable or start deteriorating. The cognitive functions which are at a major risk of decline are: selective attention, object naming, verbal fluency, visuo-spatial abilities, logical analysis. Change in memory related to aging varies. The ability to construct, to store and retrieve new memories can be affected by aging, while the ability to retrieve old and consolidated memories usually stays almost stable with aging. Disorders such as depression or anxiety can have an influence on cognition.
However, aging people normally experience a decrease in information processing speed and a worse operative memory capacity. To prevent this worsening in cognitive abilities we recommend joining our prevention plan.
The cognitive decline can have 3 stages:
-Normal reduction of cognitive functioning starting from 60 years old which is normally called memory impairment associated with age.
– Mild cognitive impairment which is characterized with a mild loss of memory
– Dementias (Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy’s body dementia)
The training with neurofeedback helps to improve cognitive performance, anxiety, mood, level of expression and life quality. Since these kinds of diseases are neurodegenerative a slowing-down of the symptoms is important.
