Developments in Neuroscience & PTSD

Posted on: February 22nd, 2022 by Neurohealth Associates

Texas A&M Health and Wave Neuroscience recently announced the second phase of their post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) clinical trial today. This phase intends to investigate the safety and efficacy of Magnetic EEG-guided Resonance Therapy in a randomized clinical trial for post-traumatic stress disorder, with or without traumatic brain injuries.

Lead doctor Kenneth Ramos, MD, Ph.D., noted “results of the initial trial suggested that MeRT therapy may be effective for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder,” Ramos said. “This second phase of the investigation has been designed to further evaluate the efficacy and safety of MeRT in a larger and more diverse group of patients. Our goal is to find ways to improve the quality of life for patients afflicted with this devastating condition.”

Neuroscience & PTSD Trials

Joining the Texas A&M study is Wave Neuroscience, an innovative company focused on brain health. Wave Neuroscience is a pioneer in offering treatments that have shown promise in optimizing brain performance. The company has been able to help individuals living with not just PTSD, but also traumatic brain injuries, depression, and substance abuse.

The first phase of the trial involved 74 participants, located in Tampa, Florida, and San Diego, California. For the second phase, adults aged 18-65 may be eligible to participate if they have experienced symptoms of PTSD for at least six months and meet other eligibility criteria. Enrollment is also open to participants who live with PTSD combined with persistent post-concussive symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
