Neurocore uses neuro-feedback and brain mapping to provide a drug-free alternative to treat the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The Neurocore approach makes use of electroencephalogram (EEG) data to train ADHD sufferers to calm their neural pathways. The practitioner begins by mapping the patient’s brain and then uses the information to develop a customized training program.
Neurocore can usually produce results in 2 or 3 weekly sessions administered over a period of 3 months. The most significant changes reported by patients are increased mental focus, steady rate of breathing and decreased anxiety. Some effects achieved by Neurocore are short term but the approach has produced permanent structural changes in some patients.
Neurocore was developed nearly 15 years ago to serve ADHD patients of all ages and is usually conducted at a Brain Performance Center. Professionals who wish to use Neurocore should be familiar with the administration of behavioral checklists to evaluate ADHD in addition to knowing how to operate EEG monitors. The company has nine locations in Michigan and is headquartered in the Greater Detroit area.
