Who We Are
Neurocore Brain Performance Centers specialize in data-driven, brain-based diagnostics and treatments that help children and adults improve concentration, sleep better, and manage stress. Founded in 2004, Neurocore has quickly become a national authority in applied neuroscience.
Using data from quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG), along with other physiological measures, Neurocore gains a deep understanding of why a person’s health and well-being may be compromised. Neurocore has provided diagnostic qEEG to thousands of children and adults.
Once the assessment is completed, Neurocore uses neurofeedback therapy to train the brain to operate more efficiently. In one study of children who were on ADHD medication, 81% of them who completed Neurocore's neurofeedback program eliminated or greatly reduced their medications for ADHD. This research was done in collaboration with a major Midwest insurance company. In addition, the children's parents reported improved performance and behaviors. Adults report better sleep, renewed focus and significant relief from stress after completing the program.
