Innovation is a brain function that is dependent upon the physical health of your brain. In Dr. Amen’s TEDx talk he discusses how your brain is involved in everything you do. How you think, how you feel, and how you get along with others. When your brain is troubled, you are more likely to have trouble in your life. However, when your brain works right, you work right. At Amen Clinics we use SPECT brain imaging to look at your brain activity and blood flow patterns. Essentially, these scans are telling us how your brain works.
SPECT imaging shows Amen Clinics 3 things:
- Areas of the brain that work well.
- Areas of the brain that are low in activity.
- Areas of the brain that are high in activity.
Your Brain is a Reflection of Your Lifestyle
In addition, SPECT imaging can show us behavior patterns. For example, your brain can be a reflection of how you may be struggling. When we see healthy brains, people tend to be happier, healthier, wealthier, wise, more creative, and more innovative. When we see unhealthy brains people are sadder, sicker, poorer, rigid, and inflexible (this is ultimately the opposite of innovative).
