Research & Initiatives

Nova Palm Medical's approach draws from the extensive research and publications by the PISTA Institute, a comprehensive repository of knowledge spanning diverse domains, including human development, neuroscience, psychology, sports science, and sound science. This wealth of information serves as a wellspring of wisdom, offering profound insights into the complexities of the human brain, innovative strategies for personal growth, and scientifically-backed solutions to common human challenges.


With a 45-year legacy of empirical research, the Institute's publications lay a sturdy groundwork for informed decision-making, serving as a well of inspiration for academic institutions, research facilities, and communities, and providing invaluable guidance to individuals striving to improve their well-being and navigate life's intricacies.


Nova Palm Medical collaborates with the PISTA Institute to incorporate these research findings into their approaches for addressing neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, ensuring that their strategies are informed by decades of rigorous scientific exploration.
