Neurocore is a company based out of Boca Raton, Florida and Livonia, Michigan, which uses innovative technology in order to treat mental disorders a different way from traditional means. Usually, there are two forms of treatments for mental disorders or conditions: medication or psychotherapy. Neurocore has offered a third option: Neurofeedback.
How Does it Work?
“Neurofeedback” is used to treat a wide range of conditions such as Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD. The brain has an optimal speed at which it functions and if there is too much or too little activity in the brain, this can mean that there are underlying problems.
Neurocore Neurofeedback mental training begins when the patient is made to view a video (often a television show or movie of their choice)and the electrical activity in their brains are kept account of through an EEG. Whenever their mind begins to waver (shown through sudden activity in the brain waves), the movie is restarted. In this method, the mind is trained to be steady and thus, the individual gains more of a control over his or herself.
Neurocore also offers an option to train at home if this option is convenient. The process is the same and the patient will be paired with a brain training coach to assist along the way. This option offers an app that can be used to monitor your brain waves while playing video games or watching YouTube videos. The data of your brain activity is stored and viewed by your brain coach to check your progress.
