How can playing a game with my breath train my brain?
0.1 Hz breath gaming is brain training. Breathing is controlled by your brain.
.1Hz breathing engages the brain to enhance brain plasticity and neurogenesis—the birth of new neurons—by engaging the brain’s vagal nerve.
Overtime, daily practice of .1 Hz gameplay can train the brain to chronically increase vagal nerve stimulation, enhances the capacity for plasticity.
The vagal nerve also promotes an anti-stress response that protects the brain from the damaging effects of chronic stress.
