Dominic Di Loreto, MA, BCIA
Director of Applied Neuroscience
Dominic Di Loreto, MA, BCIA has 6 years of experience developing and implementing neuromodulation treatments in premier clinics in the United States.

Insomnia is influenced by hyperarousal as evidenced by EEG data. Those with insomnia exhibit higher amounts of beta activity compared to control groups, which is often associated with anxiety. Individuals with insomnia often exhibit accelerated heart rate or hyperarousal compared to healthy controls. This may contribute to greater hypervigilance during the night, which leads to greater sleep-related difficulties (falling asleep and staying asleep)
