Question normal

Anxiety and stress disorders like GAD and ADHD have neurological and environmental aspects. Patients receive medications and counselling for lifestyle changes. Diagnosis and therapy are based on patient self-reported symptoms. Is there a chasm between self-reported symptoms and diagnosis? Is there a correlation between lifestyle changes and electroencephalography data? We can investigate this by expanding the potential applications of MUSE brain sensing headbands and incorporating secure social networking between patient and provider. I propose a three-way approach: (1) enable patients to use MUSE headbands at home as part of their lifestyle therapies, (2) request them to text or share their feelings pre, during and post MUSE sessions with a care giver (3) correlate MUSE-generated electroencephalography data with self-reported symptoms and effectiveness of therapy. Thus, outcomes-driven learning and patient-centered social networking can be applied to everyday out-patient care.
