Neurocore And The Development of EEG Testing

Neurocore is a company based out of Livonia, Michigan that focuses on making the world a better place for people who struggle with mental health and behavioral challenges by giving them more options and strategies in which to treat the conditions that they suffer from. They do this by learning as much about the brain as they can and improving on already existing strategies.

Neurocore is working to provide new solutions for mental conditions like ADHD, anxiety, ASD, Depression, Memory, Migraines, Sleep issues, and stress. They do this by starting their patients out with an initial comprehensive assessment analysis which looks at their brainwaves through qEEG technology, heart rate, and breathing patterns and use all of that data to get a clear picture of what is happening in your brain. They then use your unique brain data as a guide and create a customized treatment plan to your brain to help your brain function more efficiently.

An electroencephalogram which is more commonly known as an EEG is a test performed on the brain by use of small metal discs that just stick onto the head and do not invade your head or cause pain in any way.

The metal electrodes are attached to the scalp, and the scalp then sends electrical impulses out to the screen in the form wavy lines which doctors look at and make their diagnosis from. The earliest EEG that doctors used was designed to tell doctors whether a patient had epilepsy or not but with the development of science and technology, doctors now use it to diagnose and treat mental disorders like strokes, sleep issues, tumors, brain swelling, brain injuries, ADHD and ADD, and more.

EEG signals were being used in the 1960s and it began having medical implementation throughout the 1960s and the 1970s. However, it was not until the mid-1990s that digital computers were able to look at EEGs and analyze them and use that data to begin finding strategies to help with mental disorders.

Over the last few years, EEG technology has become more and more affordable, and companies like Neurocore are using this calculating power to guage how fast or slow the brain waves are working which helps them isolate the root of issues you are facing so that they can work towards permanent solutions of getting rid of symptoms that people face with mental illnesses.
