Eyes and Heart, Neurons and Brain Connecting Again

Eyes and Heart, Neurons and Brain Connecting Again

Last year, after eye surgery, my iPhone display looked enormous. These days, it looks teeny weeny. Amazing how adaptation changes perception. I no longer get dizzy moving my eyes across a wide screen. My brain is used to the sharper-looking text and more depth in the screen colours. My panoramic vision isn’t solid yet, but […]

Proprioception Efficiency Improving after Eye Surgery

I’m back on the weekly brain training track: enhance gamma (39-42 Hz) brainwaves for three neurofeedback screens; inhibit 16-20 Hz and enhance SMR (12-15 Hz) brainwaves for the next three neurofeedback screens. The latter three are supposed to help me adapt to and keep my improved and more efficient vision, perception, and proprioception. Right after […]

Miracles of Biofeedback

Something spectacular happened. And happened again. My heart rate dropped into the 70s and stayed in the 80s during brain biofeedback two weeks in a row. And my HRV (heart rate variability) hit 6. Six!!! Back in 2012, two was good news, and ten was the goal. So five years later, more than halfway there. […]

Faith Healing, Brain Injury, Regenerating Eyesight, and Walking

I went to a faith healing a month ago. Yeah, I know, faith healing! Who believes in that charlatan practice, eh? Well, it was central to Christ’s ministry and to the early Christian church. But even back then, the elders warned of false prophets, the need to discern between those who genuinely give themselves to […]

New Relearning Challenges Post-Eye Surgery Complicated by the Brain Injury

New Relearning Challenges Post-Eye Surgery Complicated by the Brain Injury

I wrote previously about my vision changes since my brain injury and how eye surgery 11 weeks accelerated them to give me binocular vision, proper depth perception, improved facial perception, enhanced colour perception, and new vision for details and distance. But with dramatically improved eyesight comes the need to adapt. In the Bible, Jesus healed […]

Full left to right panoramic vision Peripheral vision on both sides, not just one Depth perception I thought I had but apparently not because suddenly objects had crannies and hills I hadn’t seen before Details!
