How Neurocore Offers A Third Way To Treat Mental Health Conditions
Neurocore is a company that helps people experiencing mental health challenges such as depression. They say it’s hard to get treatment for these challenges for a number of reasons. People may be reluctant to seek it out due to social stigma. They might be able to afford the cost and sometimes the mental health challenge itself stops people from seeking out treatment. If people do get help it’s usually a combination of talk therapy and medication.
While talk therapy and medication can be effective to some extent they’re not the best answer for everyone. Their symptoms may not respond to these methods of treatment or there are bad side effects. Neurocore offers a third way of treating mental health challenges including depression, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, hyperactivity, and more. This is by using neurofeedback instead of talk therapy and medication.
Neurocore has several brain performance centers where they offer neurofeedback. It is the same treatment for all of the mental health disorders. The first step is putting a customized “hat” on the client that measures their brain’s electrical activity. The clinician uses this activity to create a “brain map” which outlines what the client’s baseline is. They can see if there are irregularities in the “brain map” which is the problem causing the mental health condition.
From there, the client comes in for brain training sessions where their brains are monitored while they sit and watch a movie. The brain is trained to stay within normal parameters which relieves the mental health issues the client has. This uses a reward system that involves the movie not stopping as long as the brain operates within the baseline standards.
Neurocore was established in 2004. They are now recognized as a national authority when it comes to applied neuroscience. They have centers in both Florida and Michigan. The chief executive officer of this company is Mark Murrison and the chief science officer is Elyse Kemmerer White. They are also led by President Rick Kuiper.
