Collins Foundation’s $1 Million Grant Furthers Brainwave ‘Balancing’ Research
The funds will be used in research directed by Charles H. Tegeler, MD, the McKinney-Avant Professor of Neurology, director of Telestroke Services and director of the Ward A. Riley Ultrasound Center.
The research focuses on the use of the commercial product Brainwave Optimization™ created by Brain State Technologies. The product uses a proprietary process to reflect the brain’s frequencies back to itself using musical tones. In a recent pilot study, the process was shown to reduce symptoms of insomnia.
The funding will support studies examining post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI), insomnia and depression in specific populations. It also will examine TBI in professional, college and teenage athletes, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Asperger’s syndrome in people ages 12 and older.
Previous funding from the Collins Foundation in 2011-12 totaling $729,000 helped create the research program.
