Ever feel as though your brain isn’t cooperating – that it wanders or forgets, or just won’t quit procrastinating? The science of neurotherapy aims to fix all that by teaching you to manipulate the electrical frequencies in your mind. Kevin Conely takes the brain out for a test-drive.
I can’t return my brain, even though it seems to malfunction all the time. I’m not being facetious: My mind is volatile, easily distracted. I can’t keep track of my keys, my billfold, my glasses; when faced with a deadline, I can waste hours writing comments on a new Facebook video posted by a guy I knew for three days on a trip to… Did I mention I frequently space out? Flabby, pallid, out of shape – my brain can sometimes feel like the mental equivalent of a fat gut.
