What is BrainCore Neurofeedback?

BrainCore Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drugless approach that addresses brainwave imbalance with over 70 years of proven results. It works as a guided exercise for the brain using a learning modality designed to retrain dysregulated brainwave patterns. The goal for neurofeedback is to transform a dysregulated brainwave imbalance to a normal, regulated, and organized pattern. When you have regulated brainwave patterns, the brain is able to operate optimally and efficiently.

What is brain wave imbalance?

Depending on your mental state, your brain could produce four distinct brainwaves:

 

BETA

Thought. Produced when you are externally focused.

ALPHA

Consciousness. Produced when you close your eyes and relax.

THETA

Emotion. Produced briefly when you start to fall asleep.

DELTA

Instinct. Occurs when you are sleeping.

Dysregulated Brainwave Patterns

can result in neurological conditions such as:

How do I start with Neurofeedback?

To begin neurofeedback, we need a comprehensive assessment.  We want a solid baseline of where the 4 most dysregulated areas of your brain are. These imbalances are detected through a comprehensive QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) or what we call a Brain Map. The Brain Map measures the patterns of your brainwaves and provides us with the data to compare to normative thresholds. We use this information to create a neurofeedback training protocol. Protocols are designed to retrain brainwave patterns towards normal. 

The QEEG Report

The brainwave data recorded with the QEEG is statistically compared to a large, advanced normative database and a report is generated. The assessment provides neurofeedback training protocols to be used during training sessions. Retraining and normalizing specific brainwave patterns is the goal when designing these protocols.

After a Brain Map...

Once we have the data from the Brain Map, we create a protocol, specific to the individual’s needs. We use this protocol for Neurofeedback training sessions. 

During a brain training session, clients are connected to a computer using sensors that allow the computer to record their brainwave activity. The painless, noninvasive sensors simply receive the brainwaves emitted by the brain and carry them to the computer for amplification and recording by the BrainCore software.

The software automatically detects when the brainwaves are properly ordered and feeds that information back to the client through the client's chosen training media. The client is actually controlling the training media with their brain; and by doing so, the brain is learning how to regulate itself.

As brainwave patterns balance, the brain is able to operate optimally and efficiently!

How long before I experience results?

Most clients respond to neurofeedback within the first 4-8 sessions with continued improvement resulting from the brain developing and reinforcing new pathways as well as learning new responses over the course of their care. 

How long will the effects of Neurofeedback last? 

Follow up studies made over the long term demonstrate that improvements from Neurofeedback last up to 40 years. Because Neurofeedback is beneficial for peak performance, many of our clients decide to continue with Neurofeedback sessions after the resolution of symptoms.

How long does a treatment session last and how many treatments sessions will I need? 

A typical treatment session lasts about 30 minutes, and most clients typically require a minimum of 20-40 sessions. Some cases require more.
