magneto-encephalograph, or MEG, uses two technologies that are
already familiar to you - MRI and PET - to scan the brain for

can only hope to accomplish in years. For many patients, it
offers an effective treatment for phobias, schizophrenia, multiple
personality, and other disorders.

MEG arms will rotate, emitting harmless, painless magnetic beams.
The magnetic field will depolarize the synapses in the brain,
providing easier access to repressed memories.

short-lived. As we guide you with questions related to your
particular case, the radioactive glucose will collect in whatever
area of the brain is active, enabling us detect the precise
location of the unwanted memory - called the locus.

only those cells.
accomplish this with RF ablation. We use two narrow beams of
radio frequency. As they intersect over the locus, their combined
energy damages the cells, permanently eliminating any record
of the unwanted memory.
