New Delhi, April 21, 2016: As the zeal for the summer holidays commences this season, travellers are all set to gear up and expose their adventurous sides.

From the lofty peaks in the North to the serenity of the South, India has so much to offer for those looking for a perfect holiday destination in this season.

Apart from all travel essentials that need to be packed prior to a vacation, here are five categories of apps that can help make the vacation more organised:

  • Mobile Wallets: With India becoming digital, it is vital to keep a check on e-wallets. Updating your Paytm wallet from time to time can prevent you searching for ATMs during your vacation.
  • Food: Apps like Swiggy, Zomato and Foodpanda can help to order food from nearby restaurants. There are now apps which let you order 24/7 so that you can travel hunger free.
  • Transport: Going to a new city is always a tedious task unless you are well prepared. Apps like Zophop save our day and make your commute so much easier and more convenient. Being available in 15 cities, it will provide you information on Local trains, metro, buses. You can also book an Uber from the app.

  • Accommodation: Finding a good hotel or a guest house anywhere has always been a priority and apps like OYO Rooms, Airbnb and Trivago ease the process.
  • Tourism: To make sure you cover all the important tourist destinations, downloading apps like TripAdvisor come handy for planning your travel.
  • The apps are easy to use and all handy, providing all necessary support and information for quick reference so that you can have a hassle-free holiday.

Non-invasive brainwave technology can potentially cut post-traumatic stress

The technology works through resonance between brain frequencies and the acoustic stimulation, where the brain is supported to make self-adjustments towards improved balance and reduced hyperarousal. It requires no conscious or cognitive activity.

  • The new technology aims to reduce the effect of post traumatic stress in an individual.
  • It can reduce many post-traumatic symptoms, including insomnia, depressive mood and anxiety.

Researchers have developed a non-invasive brainwave mirroring technology that can significantly reduce symptoms of post-traumatic stress, especially in military personnel.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder characterised by failure to recover after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.

The symptoms include insomnia, poor concentration, sadness, re-experiencing traumatic events, irritability or hyper-alertness, as well as diminished autonomic cardiovascular regulation.

“Ongoing symptoms of post-traumatic stress, whether clinically diagnosed or not, are a pervasive problem in the military,” said lead investigator Charles H. Tegeler, professor, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre in North Carolina.

“Medications are often used to help control specific symptoms, but can produce side effects. Other treatments may not be well tolerated, and few show a benefit for the associated sleep disturbance. Additional non-invasive, non-drug therapies are needed,” Tegeler added.

In the study, published in the journal Military Medical Research, the team used a high-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM) — a non-invasive method, in which computer software algorithms translate specific brain frequencies into audible tones in real time.

This provides a chance for the brain to listen to itself through an acoustic mirror, Tegeler said.

The results showed reductions in post-traumatic symptoms, including insomnia, depressive mood and anxiety after six months of using the brainwave technology.

The technology works through resonance between brain frequencies and the acoustic stimulation, where the brain is supported to make self-adjustments towards improved balance and reduced hyperarousal. It requires no conscious or cognitive activity.

The net effect is to support the brain to reset stress response patterns that have been rewired by repetitive traumatic events, physical or non-physical, the researchers said. IANS
