Brainpaths Fingertip Tracing Devices Strengthen Synapse Connections: Improves Memory
Brainpaths Fingertip Tracing Devices Strengthen Synapse Connections: Repeated and Persistent Brain Stimulation IMPROVES MEMORY
Memory loss results when Amyloid plaque builds up in the brain and impairs synaptic neuron connections. Shankar GM, Li S, Lemere CA, et al. 2008. To improve memory, synapse connections must be strengthened.
Brainpaths patented medical devices use repeated and persistent stimulation of the sensory cortex and Hippocampus of the brain, by repeatedly tracing injected plastic textures in Brainpaths devices, tracing with one or more fingertips, to increase and strengthen synapse connections.
Brainpaths USPTO Utility patent (# 9,132,059) incorporates the Hebbian theory: “neurons that fire together wire together”. A synapse between two neurons is strengthened when the neurons on either side of the synapse (input and output) have highly correlated outputs. When activities wire repeatedly, the connections between those neurons strengthen, describing synaptic plasticity where an increase in synaptic efficacy arises from repeated and persistent stimulation of synapse connections between neurons. Repeated and Persistent Stimulation of the brain is what leads to the formation of memory.
Eric Richard Kandel (born 11/7/29), an Austrian-American neuroscientist at Columbia University, is the recipient of the 2000 Nobel Prize for his research on the physiological basis of memory storage in neurons, including the Hebbian theory.
Hebbian theory in neuroscience is an explanation for the adaptation of neurons in the brain during the learning process, describing a basic mechanism for synaptic plasticity: an increase in synaptic efficacy arises when the neurons on either side of the synapse (input and output) have highly correlated outputs.
Hebbian plasticity means the brain can be molded and formed. Plasticity of the brain is what allows you to learn throughout your lifetime: your synapses change based on your experience. New synapses can be made, old ones destroyed, or existing ones can be strengthened or weakened.
This theory explains Hebbian learning, in which simultaneous activation of cells leads to pronounced increases in synaptic strength between those cells, and provides a biological basis for learning methods in education and memory rehabilitation.
Neuroplasticity shows that many aspects of the brain can be altered (or are “plastic”) even into adulthood. This notion is in contrast with the previous scientific consensus that the brain develops during a critical period in early childhood and then remains relatively unchanged (or “static”).
Activity-dependent plasticity is a form of neuroplasticity that arises from the use of cognitive functions and personal experience; hence, it is the biological basis for learning and the formation of new memories. Activity-dependent plasticity is a form of neuroplasticity that arises
from intrinsic or endogenous activity, as opposed to neuroplasticity that arise from extrinsic or exogenous factors, such as electrical brain stimulation- or drug-induced neuroplasticity.
Crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and Board games provide do brain stimulation, but do not strengthen synapse connections. Repeated and persistent stimulation of the brain is necessary to strengthen synapse connections between neurons. Brainpaths has repeated and persistent stimulation of synapse connections between neurons, tracing Brainpaths designed Hebbian mazes using one to ten fingertips to access 3000 mechanoreceptors in fingertips just under the skin, to repeatedly strengthen synapse connections between neurons (Brainpaths.com: Johns Hopkins, “Handy Guide to Touch”).
Brainpaths is soliciting memory care programs to explore opportunities to use Brainpaths devices in Memory Care Centers and Nursing Homes to improve memory and quality of life for individuals suffering from loss of memory, Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Brainpaths devices will be provided for pilot studies.
