Neurocore Attempts To Cure Depression Via Neurofeedback

Over 10 million adults are currently suffering from depression in the US alone but it seems there may be a new method that is quite effective at treating it. Around the mid-1930’s, Frederick Lemere was one of the first scientists to study the effects of neurofeedback on patients living with depression and now, more than 80 years later, scientists at Neurocore are using his research to develop the most effective methods of treating depression. One of the main characteristics of depression is a lack of functionality over a gradual period of time but this new treatment may help people fight back against depression.

Out of the 292 people they have treated, over three-fourths of them have noticed a significant alleviation in the severity of their symptoms while over half of the patients no longer met the qualifications required to be considered a person with depression. This has led to some of the clinicians and scientists at Neurocore to initiate a medication-free depression treatment program which uses Qeeg technology to monitor the brainwaves of their patients in an effort to determine the inherent causes of depression. Many scientists believe depression is often linked to hereditary factors, hormones and the genetic makeup of a person’s brain. They’ve also found that an increase in alpha activity may serve as an indicator that a certain person has depression.

Since being founded in 2004, Neurocore has become one of the leading authorities on applied neurosciences and has also attracted some big name athletes and sports teams such as the Portland Trailblazers. They are currently serving two different states, Michigan and Florida, but hope to expand to other states as the organization grows. Throughout those two states, they have eight different performance centers open to the public and available to anyone who needs help. In recent years, they’ve added something called a brain room to one of their facilities which seeks to improve overall brain function as well as give a boost to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. So we wish them the best of luck on the future of their endeavors and hope they’re successful.
