Dyslexia - The advantages of using EPOC-X or Insight

Dyslexia is assumed to be a disconnection syndrome in the temporal lobe. The temporal lobe is one of the 4 lobes of our brain and has many tasks including speech, memory and hearing. The lobes have nerve cells called neurons that communicate with each other through electrical activity. These electrical fluctuations in the brain are measured with the help of a device called EEG and an idea about brain functions is obtained.

EEG measurements in dyslexia show increased slower brain waves in the left temporal region of the brain and there may be EEG slowdown. Dyslexia has adjustment problems and gamma band problems. It is known that the connections between neurons are weak and there is a deficiency in gray matter formation, which also affects working memory. Therefore, solutions that reduce disconnection syndrome, increase consistency and increase entropy are suitable for dyslexia. Gluten-free diets, special education and neurofeedback are effective solutions to reduce the symptoms of dyslexia.

What is Neurofeedback? How is it different from other solutions?

Neurofeedback is a learning method that helps a person change their own brain waves. With Neurofeedback, the person's EEG data is read. With operant conditioning, the person gains more control of their brain. Once the person learns to control a part of the brain area, the weak connections are changed and the dyslexia effect can be reduced.

Neurofeedback Solutions from Auto Train Brain!

Auto Train Brain offers two separate Neurofeedback Solutions:

EPOC-X is an advanced solution that incorporates the principles of neurofeedback, multimodal learning and special education from 14 channels.

INSIGHT is a solution that includes 5-channel learning and special education principles.

Difference of EPOC-X and INSIGHT:

In one study, we compared the long-term use and effects of Auto Train Brain and 14-channel neurofeedback and 5-channel neurofeedback for dyslexia. 40 dyslexic children aged 7-10 participated in this experiment. By using Auto Train Brain many times (more than 100), they developed skills in reading comprehension and reading speed. INSIGHT2 (5-channel) and EPOC-X (14-channel) headers were used in the experiments. Participants performed Neurofeedback sessions at home with the help of their families. During the neurofeedback training, the participants sat at the table and did their training… Participants used the arrow neurofeedback interface of Auto Train Brain. Brain waves of 20 randomly selected participants were read using INSIGHT for 5 channels, and brain waves for the remaining 20 participants were read using EPOC-X. 14-channel visual and auditory neurofeedback was given for 30 minutes. After the neurofeedback session, multi-sensory alphabet learning was studied for 15 minutes.

In the first 20 sessions of use, the variance of sample entropy in the gamma band increased rapidly with 14-channel neurofeedback. With 5-channel neurofeedback, the number of sessions required for this increase was doubled. At 40 sessions, the gamma band entropy variance peaked and adaptations began in the brain. We assume that many metabolic changes take place in the brain and body of these children while adapting to and learning from Neurofeedback and that the learning effort is high in the first month. After 20 sessions for 14-channel neurofeedback and 40 sessions for 5-channel neurofeedback, the variance of the sample entropy in the gamma band decreases and we hypothesize that pruning, new cell formation begins in the brain. After that, the variance in gamma band entropy increases for the remainder of the sessions.

As a result, it shows that the flexibility in the gamma band measured from the brain increases after 100 sessions of use of Auto Train Brain with both earphones. With 5-channel neurofeedback, it takes twice as much time and sessions to increase the flexibility of the brain. Families using 14-channel neurofeedback can see the positive effects of the child's daily life much earlier.

After 14-channel neurofeedback EPOC-X, brain development accelerates more and approaches normal. The data strengthen the thesis that dyslexia is caused by a genetic change that spreads widely and occurs on a cellular basis, and it is thought that this difference, which occurs on a cellular basis, affects the general development of the brain and slows it down.
