Neurofeedback

A Drugless Treatment for Brainwave Dysregulation

BrainCore is an alternative method, proven successful and helps patients of all ages. Neurofeedback is revolutionizing the scope of treatment for ADHD, ADD, Autism, Asperger’s, Insomnia, and PTSD.

BrainCore can also treat:

  • Learning disorders

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Migraines and chronic pain

  • Memory loss

  • Poor performance

How BrainCore Works

To help patients understand more about BrainCore at Palm Beach Health Center, neurofeedback focuses on the behavior of brainwaves (alpha, beta, theta, delta). When you have information on what your brainwaves are doing, your brain can use that information to change how it works.

Four distinct brainwaves (alpha, beta, theta, and delta) occur specifically as certain situations arise.  A healthy brain, regulated and functioning properly, will produce these brainwaves at ideal levels and at the appropriate time.

Trauma or nervous system interruption results from the brainwave patterns becoming dysregulated, causing many different neurological conditions. The abnormalities leading to nervous system concerns are:

  • Subluxation

  • Stress

  • Allergic reactions

  • Improper nutrition

  • Sensitivities to food

  • Side effects from drugs

  • Drug abuse/trauma

By utilizing neurofeedback, it’s possible to address these issues, restoring proper brain functionality and processing.

Brain Mapping

Neurofeedback begins with a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) evaluation. The QEEG is an assessment tool designed to evaluate a person’s brainwave patterns. The procedure consists of placing a cap with small sensors over the scalp. These sensors will measure and record electrical activity (brainwaves). Note: no electrical current enters the brain.

Our doctors will generate a report that assesses if there are abnormalities in brainwave patterns. Our doctors can then formulate an adequate treatment plan utilizing neurofeedback training protocols that they’ll use during the training sessions. These protocols will retrain the brainwave patterns, resetting them to normal.

Example of a QEEG Evaluation

Once the protocols are determined, the individual is hooked to our computer to record their brainwave activity VIA sensors. Everything is noninvasive, and it’s important to note that no electrical current will touch the brain. The sensors simply record the brainwaves coming from it.

Is BrainCore Fun?

Since treatment can take the form of a game, movie, or sound, BrainCore can be considered fun. The scientifically designed software automatically detects when brainwaves signal correctly, and it feeds that information back to the patient.

This feedback can be a game, movie, or sound. Whichever signals the patient that the brainwaves are becoming more ordered. Using multimedia and technology to help the brain operate more optimally and efficiently is fun and revolutionary.

How it Works

In the example below, this patient is watching a puzzle being filled in piece by piece. As the patient’s brainwaves move in an orderly direction, the puzzle pieces continue to connect as the patient hears a tone.

If the brainwave patterns deviate from orderly, the puzzle won’t become filled in. Patients may also ask to watch a DVD controlled by their ability to regulate their brainwaves. If the brainwaves are normalizing, they’ll get brighter. On the contrary, if they become dysregulated, it will become too dark to enjoy.

The patient controls the completion of the puzzle with their brain, and by doing so, the brain is learning how to regulate itself. As for the movie, the brain’s natural desire to watch the movie clearly will drive those neurological circuits that normalize the brainwaves and allow you to visualize the picture.

The more those circuits are driven and used – the more neuroplastic changes take hold. The patient learns how to use those new circuits during the demands of everyday life.
