Whereas multiple brain areas have been found to be involved in ER, relatively little is known about whether and how ER is associated with the global functioning of brain networks.
The company’s flagship device, the Halo Sport, is designed to deliver neurostimulation to the motor cortex in a 20 minute neuropriming session which Halo Neuroscience claims induces a temporary state of hyperplasticity that allows neural pathways from the motor cortex to the muscles to be optimized and strengthened.”
