Dr. Helen Kogan Budzynski is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychosocial and Community Health. Dr. Budzynski's teaching and scholarship interests focuses on cognitive/physiologic interface in chronic dysfunctions and self-management teaching. She continues to teach at least course per year while actively engaged in research involving the effects of various light and auditory stimuli and biofeedback. (2) Self-management training of hypertension and sudden cardiac arrest. (3) Neural training with Attention Deficit Disorder.
Helen has been working with the production of a photic stimulation/neurofeedback system, the EDLS (electroencephalographic-driven light/sound) stimulation system, which potentially can be used for numerous chronic neurologic problems. This device stimulates the brain in the direction of a higher functioning EEG pattern. The research proposes to test the device for improving mild cognitive impairment in the elderly.
