I’ve scrolled the past year’s worth of posts and couldn’t see anything on this topic. Perhaps because the science and available tools just don’t match up yet.
I was wondering if anyone has thought about, is thinking about or is interested in thinking about ways to improve understanding and mapping a mix of cognitive/mood and anxiety symptoms to biochemical abnormalities to help drive improved interventions?
I have a mix of ADD (with sig EF deficits VIQ/PIQ discrepancy), mood and anxiety issues that don’t map neatly to lifestyle and other interventions. My frustration is that there are not yet biomarkers to help guide interventions, which I feel is helpful once you have a combination of symptoms that are non-traditional. I’ve done 23andme raw genetic data analysis and at one point a QEEQ, but not clear data indicating reliability of adapting these to solutions.
My goal is to get the biochemical support in place where I could keep to better lifestyle interventions, but that has been an elusive goal at times :(. Even with medication/exercise/therapy, I still struggle to leverage and benefit from lifestyle interventions.
Anyone have any reflections/thoughts on this? Are there any neurointerfaces or use of QEEG that could reliably help? The cognitive tests help identify a phenotype, but don’t help narrow down what biochemical abnormality to address.
