Neurocore Brain Performance Centers, based out of Michigan, has committed to reaching a more in-depth understanding of how the mind functions in relation to certain diagnosis’ through advanced brain mapping. In doing so, the company has found a way to analyze the brain through evidence rather than the traditional reliance of observing behaviors. Consequently, Neurocore has risen to the challenge of changing the way ADHD and depression are treated with Neurofeedback therapy. The goal of Neurofeedback therapy is to promote better long-term brain function in managing ADHD and other disorders, thereby decreasing the need to treat them with medication. Recent studies are showing great promise in this field. Read more about Neurocore at muscletech.com.
The method behind Neurocore’s therapy, which treats a variety of issues such as inattentiveness, depression, lack of sleep and other stress-related symptoms, consists of both biofeedback and neurofeedback responses. Neurocore’s mechanism for successful therapy is a positive reinforcement system for the brain that takes place in real time. The patient watches a video while electrodes are hooked to their head and ears. These electrodes monitor a patients breathing, heart rate, and brain waves while the patient watches a movie. The system is simple and immediate: if the electrodes observe changes in brain waves which indicates loss of focus, the corresponding movie that the patient is watching shrinks in size or pauses. Eventually, the brain retrains itself to automatically self-adjust during those pauses. The average number of required sessions to accomplish this is 30, however, it is not uncommon for some patient’s to need extra sessions.

Neurocore cites that 75 percent of their patients who have completed Neurofeedback therapy were able to either lower their medication or come off of them entirely. They promote the idea that Neurofeedback therapy treats the underlying causes of a diagnosis whereas medication treats only the symptoms. By extensively testing specific areas of a patients brain, NeuroCore is able to customize a plan that suits each patient’s individual needs. Visit indeed.com to know more about Neurocore.
Possibly the most appealing part of Neurofeedback therapy is that the series of sessions only needs to be completed one time. Once concluded, studies have shown that even years after treatment, behaviors remain corrected and reduction of previous medications stay consistent, or medications may even become unnecessary. Treatment of ADHD, depression and other related disorders shows great promise in the years ahead, and Neurocore is at the helm of the technology behind it.
