A description of this project as introduced by Quantified Self follows:
Arend Visser talks about his colleague who studied neurosurgery. He shares what his colleagues have learned and how he could make his knowledge useful for the society and how he discovered a way to stimulate the brain into creating new neuropathways. In this talk, he shares how it works, the procedure, and the progress.

Neurologica by Arend Visser
Thank you that I talk to you and until yesterday evening we thought that it was better to say nothing when this slideshow passes because it handle about brains and brains do their work in silence so we thought we should be silent to. But yesterday evening I thought it was better to say something when the slideshow is doing it’s work. My colleague is an information analyst and later on due to his fascination for the working of the brain he studied neurosurgery. He is the inventor of the surgery glasses, the Vein GD2 and this tool projects exactly to the computer images of the inside of the brains into the lens of the surgeon and make it able to work work fairly concentrated. After his studies he asked himself how he could make his knowledge useful for the society and when thinking about that he thought it would be when he brought a solution for stress, burnout, and depression, so he discovered a way to stimulate the brain into creating new neuropathways. So since 2005 he tested it out on about 400 volunteers supported by baseline measurements and effect measurements in interneuron tests, EEGs and in a lot of cases MRI scans , so further refinement for the main target developed and the results were great; it’s highly effective. Approximately 90% of the clients recovered within two months from people who were in depression for about 15 years, burnout for two years and that kind of long-term disease and they recovered within two month so it was amazing. In the meantime in the last six years of experience operations for other disorders have been made for anxiety and panic disorders, high sensitivity, post-traumatic stress, ADD, ADHD, and those kinds of things. Due to the self-healing ability of the brain, in other words the plasticity of the brain is being maximum used. How it works and the procedure we have an intake and do the tests which determine what pictures are best for the clients are most appropriate and then follow the program from what the clients attend and its six weeks in a row for about one hour. Through this we discuss the progress and in the end over this period re-measurements are taken to support the client objectively. Currently one of our university hospitals, scientific research takes place to measure the effectiveness and we want to use the outcomes to support our ideal that this treatment will be accessible for a lot of people when it will be included in the basic insurance that the quality of life for many people will greatly improve we think. In the near future we want to do trials with Alzheimer patients also and we are convinced that this will bring a revolution in health care and that the waiting lists, the costs, and the quality of life of many people it will change lives. I hope this presentation and your responses for example by social media will greatly accelerate to achieve this goal.
Thank you for your attention and when you have questions ask them.
