How Neurocore Is Using Neurofeedback To Treat Patients With ADHD

Neurocore is a 14-year-old company that helps people by offering a neurofeedback service. Their patients can be having issues with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, ADHD, or other mental conditions they want to receive treatment for. They provide services to children and adults in both Michigan and Florida.

A new patient goes through a complete evaluation on their first visit. If it is determined that Neurocore is right for them they will go through a series of appointments where they are hooked up to a neurofeedback device that monitor their brain activity as they watch a movie. When their mind wanders this device will stop the movie until the patient is able to get their mind back on it. Once the device determines this has been achieved the movie will start up again. In this way, people train their brains to stay focused and on track.

ADHD is a relatively common neurodevelopmental disorder that starts in childhood and can last well into a person's adult years. ADHD results in a child that is inattentive, impulsive, or hyperactive. There are three types of ADHD and a person falls into one of these categories based on the symptoms they exhibit. The first two categories of ADHD are Predominately Hyperactive-Impulse Presentation and Predominately Inattentive Presentation. The third category of ADHD is reserved for people who have symptoms from both of these categories. Read more about Neurocore at glassdoor.com.

Neurofeedback has been shown to be an effective treatment for ADHD. The team at Neurocore says that in fact most of the research that has been conducted on neurofeedback has been about if it can treat ADHD. The first research into this topic was conducted in 1976 by J.F. Lubar. His research concluded that neurofeedback resulted in children being less distracted and less hyper in their behavior.

Other research on neurofeedback and ADHD was being performed at the same time at UCLA. That research concluded that an excess of theta waves and a commensurate decrease in beta waves was likely the cause of ADHD. Neurocore says that 85% of their patients with ADHD show a noticeable reduction in their symptoms. 53% of their patients drop below the thresholds of being diagnosed with ADHD.
