BrainCore Therapy is a form of neurofeedback, that enables the nervous system to retrain itself to create new, more appropriate brain wave patterns and break the cycle of Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (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 the brain’s electrical activity (EEG) is transmitted to a computer screen. Visual feedback of the patient’s brain waves in the form of an animated game such as Pac Man or a movie is provided instantly. The animated game or a movie only plays when the patient is producing the correct brain waves. If the patient’s brain stops producing the desired brain waves, the game or the movie stops playing. As the nervous system reorganizes itself based on this instantaneous feedback information, the brain wave patterns begin to normalize. Over the course of multiple successive training sessions (minimum of 20), the brain modifies itself to begin producing the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate times, resulting in an alleviation of the symptoms. This process is based on the science of Neuroplasticity.
The systems that govern the human brain are the most complex and compact on earth. In order for the brain to function optimally, the various parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly. This “talking” is accomplished via the transmission of electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another. The electrical signals are expressed as brain waves. Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS) can be a result of tension on the nervous system caused by subluxation, poor nutrition, stress, toxins, drugs or emotional/physical trauma. It can be associated with symptoms of many neurological based conditions including:
The American Academy of Pediatrics has placed neurofeedback as a “Level 1 – Best Support” evidence-based practice for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) on the Evidence-Based Child and Adolescent Psychosocial Interventions Report.
