BRAIN EFFICIENCY OBSERVATION
There are millions of brain activity task combinations that can be administered for the purpose of brain mapping. In many screenings, and for the intent of the Former Player Study and Quality of Life screenings, participants’ perform specific tasks that prompt the mimicking of brain states that include relaxation, stress, and focus or high concentration. These tasks are conducted in the form of questionnaires and auditory question and answer sessions.
Based on individual screening performance, this method of screening provides visual evidence of how a participant’s brain reacts in real-time to screening session tasks. Observed and calculated data can then be compared to how a person feels following a screening—providing value and validity in brain science.
Providing a base performance standard, the data collected following the screening is then compared demographically to people in the same age and gender categories. Data collected can also be compared to participant heart rate data, providing observation models of the autonomic nervous system’s communication with the brain.
