1

Define effective dose

dose that produces therapeutic response in target tissue

2

Define fluence

total energy delivered per unit area at tissue surface
fluency = irradiance = power density = intensity

3

what brainwave is used for bottom up processing of incoming sensory information?

gamma (>30 Hz)

4

What brainwaves are used for top down processes (to redirect attention)?

Alpha (8-15 Hz) & Beta (15-30 Hz)

5

How do you co-activate the Solitary nucleus medulla?

taste, gag reflex, carotid reflex

6

Which nuclei are part of the medulla?

(1) Solitary nucleus, (2) Trigeminal Nuclei, (3) Cochlear Nuclei, (4) Vestibular Nuclei, (5) Inferior Olive, (6) Hypoglossal Nucleus, (7) Nucleus Ambiguus, (8) Dorsal Motor Nucleus of Vagus
pneumonic: Mitch (medulla) SATCHDIV

7

How do you coactivate the Trigeminal Nuclei?

vibrate face/mouth, muscles of mastication (bite down)

8

How do you co-activate the Cochlear Nuclei?

acoustics

9

How do you co-activate the Vestibular Nuclei?

head/trunk movements, eye movements

10

How do you co-activate the Nucleus Ambiguus?

swallowing & speaking

11

How do you co-activate the Dorsal Motor Nucleus of Vagus?

digestive enzymes? (motor to GI tract & organs)

12

How do you co-activate the Hypoglossal Nucleus?

move tongue or StimPod tongue (motor to tongue)

13

How do you co-activate the Inferior Olive?

interactive metronome???

14

What nuclei are in the Pons?

Trigeminal Nuclei, Abducens Nucleus, Facial Nerve Nucleus, Vestibulocochlear Nuclei
CN 5, 6, 7, 8

15

How do you co-activate the Abducens Nucleus?

move eyes lateral

16

How do you co-activate the Facial Nerve Nucleus?

have them make faces while lasering

17

Which Nuclei are part of the Midbrain?

Oculomotor Nucleus, Trochlear Nucleus, Red Nucleus, (also tectospinal tract)
pneumonic: TOR(t) / ROT

18

How do you co-activate Trochlear Nucleus?

down & in gaze

19

How do you co-activate Red nucleus?

arm swing, proximal shoulder mm

20

How do you co-activate midline cerebellum?

whole body vibration, Rhomberg, core activation (side plank or prone plank with VOR); stop when core starts trembling

21

How do you co-activate lateral cerebellum?

vibration on extremity, muscle contraction, e-stim, arm/leg complex movement, eye movements, *cognitive tasks!, interactive metronome

22

How do you co-activate the DLPFC?

gaze fixation, focus/attention, executive thought, Neurosage
*co-activate DLPFC for Type 1 ADHD with Theta Red*

23

How do you co-activate the OFC?

anti-saccades, go-no-go activities, emotions, inhibition, Neurosage
*co-activate OFC for Type 2 ADHD with Theta Red*

24

Interactive Metronome is best for co-activating what?

Inferior Olive & Cerebellum

25

What is Crawford's ADHD Protocol?

(1) Laser briainstem/cerebellum with CB/MM Red while coactivating for 2 minutes (until they progress)
(2) Laser OFC (Type 2) &/or DLPFC (Type 1) with Theta Red while coactivating for 2 minutes (until they progress)
(3) Laser gut with Gut IR for 5 minutes every visit

26

What is the laser protocol for ADHD Type 1?

laser right DLPFC with Theta Red (&coactivate with gaze fixation, focus/attention, executive thought)

27

What is the laser protocol for ADHD Type 2?

laser right OFC with Theta Red (& coactivate with anti-saccades, go-no-go activities, emotions, inhibition)
