What Makes BrainCore of New York Unique?
BrainCore Therapy provides a unique drug less approach to addressing the symptoms of many neurological based conditions including, but not limited to: ADHD, ADD, Autism/PDD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Learning Disabilities, Memory Loss, Weight Loss, Migraines, Addictions, Peak Performance (in work, school, sports, and music), and much more!
The BrainCore technology and science is based on a training procedure that effectively teaches people how to control their own brainwaves. It is a form of behavioral training that is aimed at developing skills for self- regulation of brain activity providing proven relief of the symptoms associated with these conditions. In order to understand how BrainCore Therapy works we first need to understand how the brain works. The systems that govern the human brain are the most complex and compact on earth. In order for the brain to function optimally, the parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly. The brain accomplishes this communication by transmitting electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another. The electrical signals are expressed as brain waves. Using non-invasive surface sensors that are placed on the surface of the scalp, the BrainCore system is able to translate these brainwaves on to a computer screen for observation.
There are four distinct brain wave frequencies: Beta- produced when you are awake and engaged in active thought, Alpha- produced mostly when you close your eyes and relax, Theta- produced when you start to fall asleep, and Delta- produced when you are sleeping. Over thirty years of research has demonstrated that, for any given circumstance there is an accepted normal pattern of brain wave activity. This health pattern is referred to as Neurological Regulation. A healthy, balanced, and properly regulated nervous system will produce the appropriate levels and at the appropriate times for any given situation. In some individuals, the normal brain wave patterns are disrupted resulting in a condition known as Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome.
BrainCore Therapy is a form of Neurofeedback that allows the nervous system to retrain itself to create new, more appropriate brain wave patterns and break the cycle of NDS. Though the BrainCore technology is quite complex, the training activity is simple, painless, drugless and non-invasive. Surface sensors are placed on the scalp and EEG activity is transmitted to the computer screen. Visual feedback of the patient’s brain waves in the form of an animated game, or a movie is provided instantly. The animated game or a movie only plays when the patient is producing the correct brainwave. If the patient’s brain stops producing the desired brain wave the game or the movie, stops playing. Over the course of 30 training sessions, the brain modifies itself to begin producing the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate times resulting in an alleviation of the symptoms.
