Functional Neurology

Dr Johnson takes us on a fast paced journey through the foundational scientific principles that inform the burgeoning field of Functional Neurology. With gathered peer-reviewed literature, examples are provided of how functional neurology may serve in anxiety cases or other cases of cognitive dysfunction.

Neurofeedback: Re-shaping the brain by applied brain plasticity

The brain is an information processing machine adjusting itself to the environment. Information processing can be defined as reducing uncertainty. It has been suggested that the brain developed from an evolutionary point of view once living creatures started moving around in a changing and thus uncertain environment.

Dr Natalie Challis has found that effective treatment of Neurobehavioural disorders require a 4 pillared approach: Brain – QEEG and an individualised Loreta Neurofeedback protocol, Body – The clinical application of functional neurology focuses on regulating the activity of the brain, which stimulates changes throughout the nervous system, Behaviour – Working with an educational specialist, and a psychologist, to reinforce the neurological change into behaviour and Balance – Both the gut and brain originate early in embryogenesis from the same clump of tissue, which divides during fetal development.

Considerable evidence exists to suggest that a variety if not all cortical systems can undergo some type of plastic reorganisation. Modulation of afferent input (sensory deprivation or sensory increase) to the cortical areas represents at least one factor that determines the type of reorganisation observed. This innate plastic response is probably determined to a certain extent by the central integrative state of the neurons and glial components of the functional projection networks involved.
