Neurocore Treats Depression Using Neurofeedback

Nowadays, there are over ten million adults in the US living with depression which makes researching treatments for it all the more paramount. Fortunately, Neurocore believes they have found an efficient method of treatment. Back in the mid-1930’s, Frederick Lemere became one of the first scientists to study the effects of neurofeedback on patients with depression. More than three-quarters of a century later, Neurocore is now using the research he published to treat patients with depression via neurofeedback and having much success with it. Out of the 292 patients they have treated so far, almost 85% of them have reported a significant reduction in symptoms while almost half of them no longer met the requirements necessary to be considered depressed.

As a result, they have now opened a medication-free depression treatment program which uses Qeeg technology to map the brainwaves of its patients to help determine the inherent cause of clinical depression. Some of the more traditional methods of treatments include taking antidepressants, seeing a shrink or some combination thereof. Many scientists have also studied this and believe an increase in alpha activity to be one of the main factors in detecting depression altogether. Many factors that often contribute to depression include hereditary factors, hormones and the genetic makeup of a person’s brain. They also use ASEBA as a rating scale for their patients.

Neurocore was first founded in 2004 as a brain training company and works to help people maintain focus in the classroom and in the workplace to become better students and employees. In the fourteen years since it was first established, it has become one of the leading authorities on applied neurosciences and has even attracted some big name sports teams and athletes such as the Portland Trailblazers. They currently operate out of two states, Florida and Michigan, and have eight different performance centers open to the public. So anyone who needs help with any neurological issues can come to them for help.
