2013.10.07 Vijay Iyer on Andrew Hill - 3 of 3

Deep Focus

Sometimes you have to take all the furniture out of the room to see what it really looks like and to decide what belongs in there. Pianist Andrew Hill did that for our music (most memorably on a series of outstanding Blue Note recordings in the 1960's) and then he put it back together in a whole new way. It's still the same room but it feels fresh and vibrant; the angles are better, you can move around in it more easily. He also opened many new doors leading out of that room and entire generations of younger musicians have enthusiastically moved through them. Vijay Iyer is certainly one of them. He could never be called a Hill clone but he learned many lessons from this imaginative bandleader. It's readily apparent today in the many ensembles that he leads and his even more numerous collaborations and multimedia work. He talks about it with clarity and zeal with host Mitch Goldman in this Deep Focus from 2013. #WKCR #JazzAlternatives #MitchGoldman #DeepFocus #AndrewHill #VijayIyer #JazzRadio #jazzpodcast Photo credit: fair use.

Ben Got COVID (& What He Did About It), How To Fix Issues With Your Brain, The "God Cap" For Neurofeedback, Do Home Neurofeedback Devices Work & More With Dr. Andrew Hill.

Ben Greenfield Fitness

bengreenfieldfitness.com/peakbrainpodcast Special Announcement: In the beginning of this episode, I describe how I got COVID and what I did about it. Enjoy! Back in 2017, I visited the Peak Brain Institute in Los Angeles, California for a special type of advanced brain scan and brain mapping system called a quantified electroencephalography, or “QEEG”, and I was shocked at what they discovered in my brain. Dr. Andrew Hill, my guest on today's show, oversaw the entire mapping protocol. Dr. Hill, a UCLA trained cognitive neuroscientist, lecturer, discovered what he described as some pretty severe patterns of excess stressful beta waves, excess theta waves, and excess delta waves in my brain. What's that mean, exactly? Basically, it suggests that I had some history of concussions and traumatic brain injury (which I indeed have had, in everything from football to mountain biking to kickboxing), as well as built-up deficits of attention, increased distractibility, limited sleep potential and less-than-optimal cognitive performance from life, travel, toxins, head injuries and beyond. Two months after the scan, I hopped on a plane back to LA, and ventured back into the Peak Brain Institute for three days of intensive training to fix my brain, returning to Spokane with a briefcase packed with a laptop, electrodes, conducting gel, and everything I needed to use neurofeedback to fix my brain. The next three months I trained for 30 minutes every other day using a style of neurofeedback I can best describe as “meditation on steroids”. Mostly, my protocol involved flying a spaceship with my mind. Each time my brain subconsciously shifted into brainwave patterns considered to be unfavorable, the spaceship would stop flying and the music generated by the neurofeedback software would fade away, very much like a cognitive “slap on the wrist”. So how exactly does neurofeedback work? Technically, it’s a non-invasive form of what is known in the medical industry as “central nervous system biofeedback”. It trains the brain to develop new resources by encouraging certain areas to raise or lower the amplitude and ratios of particular brainwaves. To a very large extent, and unlike peripheral biofeedback such as practicing a physical exercise like a handstand, neurofeedback is an entirely non-voluntary process in which you are shaping the brain giving the brain feedback only when it’s doing certain things. Professional clinicians report that about 90% of users notice a significant positive impact from this style of training, and it can be used for everything from decreasing anxiety and stress to inducing faster sleep onset to even resetting tolerance to marijuana and alcohol. Neurofeedback training simply involves the placement of electrodes on the scalp, which produces a signal then picked up by an EEG amplifier. These signals are fed into software that then sends back to the user some form of visual and/or auditory “feedback” or reward. This reward stimulus is given when the brain produces desired brainwave changes in amplitude or frequency. Unlike many books and magazines would have you to believe, this type of protocol is slightly risky, and not just something you download a free neurofeedback app to do. Neurofeedback is a powerful tool and every brain is different, so the single most crucial aspect of neurofeedback training is selecting the proper protocol. Although the QEEG provides crucial information about one person’s brain, the training plan itself needs to be adaptive and iterative, based upon how someone responds to the training, which is why it's important to have the entire testing and training process overseen by a neurofeedback practitioner. Heck, when I did my three months of training with the Peak Brain Institute, Dr. Hill and I were text and email buddies nearly every day. Neurofeedback can produce side effects, although they are generally minor and short lasting – and also informative to a neurofeedback practitioner. If you get adverse effects, protocols can be adjusted to steer the brain in a different direction. But if you are training yourself with no supervision and no sense of what’s actually happening in your brain, you can easily produce negative side effects and if you keep doing it you can cause these negative effects to become permanent. So proceed with caution, but with the understanding that neurofeedback is one of the more powerful pieces of headgear that can be used to enhance or change your brain.   During our discussion, you'll discover: -A brief overview of the Peak Brain Institute...8:36   -Why a home device isn't enough for optimal brain performance...11:18   -How close we are to a "god cap" that can track brain waves without gel, electrodes, etc...25:35   -How the Peak Brain Institute tracks individual's brain waves virtually...35:45   -How diet affects a person's neurofeedback...42:40   -Nootropics or smart drugs that promote neurofeedback...1:01:45

Episode #42 - Brain health, cognition and performance with Dr Andrew Hill

The Roger Snipes Show

QUESTION0:38 How would you explain neuro feedback? How would it benefit us? What is the whole thing really? 7:59 Is it true that we only used 10% of our brain? Is there a variability in terms of each individual and how can we maximize our brain’s potential?15:22 Is that something when you’re trying to force it to do something but it’s like “no”?25:26 What would you say are the key tools to create neuroplasticity for people?29:31 Have you heard a company called “Wavi”?34:15 Is that through looking on “brain mapping”?35:59 How old are you (Roger)?38:25 Bio sense device.43:53 If your heart rate variability is in a certain range, would that show that there’s some issue with the brain or vice versa?47:26 What’s going on with the brain of people who have dementia?55:08 Would it probably be a bit riskier for me than to have these moments of sweet binges? 59:06 What’s your thoughts on circadian rhythm and the brain? Does it affect the way the brain works?1:05:50 Do you have any kind of quantifiable evidence on this or any kind of measures that you’ve done yourself? 1:08:42 Would you suggest that you should get out immediately early in the morning to get everything all set up?1:10:06 Would red light panel also has an infrared aspect of it? Would that be alright to use in the evening?1:11:41 What about the light in your skin and not your eyes?1:13:08 Did we cover “brain injury”?1:15:57 Did you say that ADD and ADHD are different?1:17:37 Is there a way of changing ADD and ADHD, if you have it?1:22:40 Could you break down each type there (alpha, theta, beta) and what point would you expect each one to kick in?1:30:30 How physical exercise works?1:34:45 What’s the difference between a headache and a migraine?1:38:40 How is central nervous system got something to do with searching signals around?1:41:50 What if someone is interested in doing neuro feedback?1:45:15 Is it actually useful for people that just want to optimize their brain or do they have to have some sort of defect going on?1:47:32 Would you say it’s similar to whether a person is doing neuro feedback remotely or if they are in a center or clinic or training center? Is it just as good if they do it from home?1:51:51 What is the website they need to visit? Who they have to talk to? Are there loads of different practitioners?1:53:39 Is there no set pricing as such it just really depends on each individual as to what they want to get?1:56:05 Website and Instagram account.Want your brain to function as efficient as a super car?understanding the brain is a complex subject. Understanding simple minded people is a task in itself so how can we decipher the organic machine which have over 100 billion cells? it takes years of specialised study. Dr Andrew Hill is that person. we look into Neurofeedback, Quantitative EEG, Mindfulness meditations and much more.
