Progressively Accelerated Cognitive Exertion: A Novel Non-Pharma Approach to Overcoming Depression

This unique approach to improving cognitive function and mood regulation was developed at the request of the US Marines in 2007 initially as a program to improve intuition and decision making under stress. The core modality is a sries of non-digital exercises that optimize CNS and PNS connectivity to create the robust stimulation critical for fast neuroplasticity changes in functional neuronal circuits. Gradually increasing the difficulty (progressively accelerated cognitive exertion) increases beneficial far effects and creates postive anticipation which releases dopomine and creates positive feelings of accomplishment and self worth. This reverses the spiral of negative reinforcement that leads to deeper depression. When performed with another person (family member or caregiver) or in a group, positive socialization from a shared expereince also boost positivity. Included will be a case study of a patient diagnosed with severe depression and BPD and his remarkable recovery.
