The Electronics of the Brain
Dr. Jeffrey Marksberry joins Mark and Dr. Gladden on this episode to discuss the electrostimulation device Alpha-Stim, which runs a low microcurrent through the brain or body. In the brain, it simulates endorphins and serotonin to treat anxiety, insomnia and depression. In the body, it treats peripheral pain.
The nervous system is 98% electrically induced, and Dr. Marksberry explains how the treatment works for patients. They discuss how this device can help enhance mental function, exploring the possibilities when paired with other treatments for improved human performance. Dr. Gladden describes some of his own experiences with Alpha-Stim as well.
