Mind-Body Medicine

Many studies have shown that thoughts and emotions can have a profound impact on health. Mind-body medicine takes this strong connection into account and uses it to improve overall health. Researchers at Helfgott are investigating the mind-body connection in many ways, including looking at the use of neurofeedback for insomnia, relaxation and visualization therapy for women undergoing breast cancer treatments, and the effects of meditation on heart rate variability.
