At Idaho Brain and Body Institute we utilize a wide range of therapies to help strengthen and improve the function of the brain. Neurofeedback and Cognitive Training in Meridian ID are two of these.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback helps to get the brain waves which are electrical currents into a normal range.

One of the assessments we perform is a QEEG. This assessment looks at brain waves such as delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma. The different brain waves lead to different functions within the brain. QEEG is used as a tool to help identify areas of the brain not functioning appropriately.

Neurofeedback is a way to help correct the area not doing its job right. For example if there is too much theta and reduced alpha in an area the therapy would aim to help correct that imbalance. Neurofeedback sessions last 20-40 minutes depending on the parts of the brain being trained.

Cognitive Testing

Cognitive training is used throughout many of the therapies. Nearly everything we do is meant to improve cognition from eye movements, balance training, rTMS, hyperbaric oxygen, and Neurofeedback. When the brain connects appropriately cognition usually improves.

Cognitive tasks are specifically used during hand-eye coordination using our NeuroSensoryMotor Integration (NSI) equipment. This is a therapy in which we challenge the speed and accuracy of the brain. A indicator of brain health is in how fast and accurately tasks can be performed. Using this therapy is a way to help improve it.

Cognitive therapies are also routinely provided to perform at home following completion of treatment specifically for those with neurodegeneration, stroke, or TBI.

“I have known Dr. Spencer Zimmerman (Dr. Z) for over a decade and watched him fine-tune his incredibly detailed approach to overcoming disease and illness. He is not your average physician. In addition to continuing education seminars and conferences, he spends 100’s of hours annually…personally studying and researching the latest cutting-edge, in-depth medical science. He’s a seeker of truth and viable, usable, effective healing solutions. His approach to immunology and rapidly boosting the body’s innate ability to mobilize and defend itself…is novel and highly comprehensive.

Wow were my eyes opened by Dr. Z. I was suffering from daily migraines, neck, back, shoulder, hip pain, vision and hearing problems, and the list goes on. Dr. Z saved my life. No joke. He is super meticulous and very passionate about his work. He is very smart and forward thinking and researches all the time. He genuinely cares about his patients. He’s an amazing and very caring provider and I highly recommend him.

“Dr. Spencer Zimmerman is phenomenal! In January I found out I have Lyme disease and along with that discovery, I found out that most traditional Doctors won’t/can’t help treat Lyme disease patients due to FDA restrictions. My only option appeared to be a Lyme specialist, which was going to cost enormous amounts of money because insurance doesn’t cover Lyme specialists. I felt hopeless. And that’s when I had the amazing fortune to come across Dr. Spencer Zimmerman. He gave me the hope I so desperately needed. He is very knowledgeable in regards to traditional medicine, but also homeopathic care as well.
