Brain-trainer Neurocore can’t support clinical claims, Board says
The rising popularity of biofeedback technologies is a manifestation of our culture’s infatuation with personal tracking and measurement.
In a biofeedback session, sensors measure your body’s responses to situations or stimuli – brain activity, breathing, heart rate and temperature – providing real-time feedback. In response to this feedback, you might adjust your mindset, your environment or your behavior, thereby testing different ways to gain mastery over your previously automatic responses.
Neurofeedback – a subgenre, as it were, of biofeedback – provides feedback on brain waves, purportedly helping subjects understand and regulate their own brain function. Neurofeedback has been promoted as an especially effective method for treating behavioral issues like ADHD, especially by companies like Neurocore. Neurocore promises to “analyze the information your brain gives us to develop a personalized training program that may improve your brain for a better life.” The company claims to treat a number of disorders, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, migraines, sleep issues and stress.
The Jury’s Out … No, It’s In …
Dr. Elena Eustache, founder of the Eustache Institute is successfully treating patients who suffer from Parkinson Disorder, a brain dysfunction that impairs a person’s movement and motor skills, with neurofeedback therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen treatments. Neurofeedback retrains the brain using a variety of brain exercises via an EEG, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy engulfs the brain with 100 percent pure oxygen, which stimulates damaged cells and increases the growth of new blood vessels to nourish them. It also mobilizes the body’s stem cells and excites neurogenesis which is the generation of new neurons. These two treatments combined offers those suffering from the disorder the possibility of reducing dependence on medication, which can enhance a person’s quality of life minus the side effects.
“Numerous patients I’ve treated with Parkinson’s disorder have shown a dramatic improvement in static and balance, especially those who’ve started treatment early on in their diagnosis,” says Dr. Elena Eustache. “After just a few treatments many of my patients feel a sense of calm, focus and clarity, which helps with them to stay positive throughout the continued treatments, because that’s what brain training is all about, retraining your brain for the positive so we can create harmony and balance throughout the person’s brain and life. With every patient, my goal is to increase the activity of the brain that controls the person’s motors functions by conducting light exercises as we monitor their brainwaves via an EEG machine. It touches my heart when I see how Neurofeedback and Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments improve and prolong the quality of life for my patients, including their loved ones. For this is the reason I have such a great passion for raising awareness about the two treatments because they truly help make a positive difference in many lives.”
According to the Parkinson Association of the Carolina’s, this disorder affects about fifty percent more men than women, and the most common age of diagnosis is 60 years of age. Nevertheless, 5 to 10 percent of people have been diagnosed earlier in life with 10 million people worldwide living with the disorder. Symptoms of Parkinson disorder include tremors in your hands, legs and arms, slow movements, stiff muscles, and problems with balance and walking. Tremors are the most common symptom. People with Parkinson’s will also lose the nerve endings that produce norepinephrine, a leading chemical messenger of the sympathetic nervous system, that controls automatic functions of the body, such as heart rate and blood pressure. In time, this disorder will attack all the muscles in the person’s body, causing problems with swallowing, digestion and moving bowels. Some cases of Parkinson’s can also lead to dementia. Dr. Elena Eustache recommends that anyone diagnosed with having Parkinson’s disorder begin treatment right away. The earlier one receives treatment; their symptoms will diminish, and the better their lives will become.

Many college students struggle with symptoms of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that might affect their academic performance and overall well-being. This study sought to investigate the effects of a neurofeedback (NF) training protocol on college students’ ADHD symptoms scores. Eleven college students with ADHD diagnoses were provided 16 sessions of NF and were assessed over the course of 8 weeks during the intervention as well as at a 4-week follow-up. Improvements were identified in levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and ADHD self-concept, over time, with no significant changes identified in impulsivity.

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It is also a type of biofeedback and is therefore, also called EEG Biofeedback. It uses the electrodes (which act like tiny microphones) placed on the client’s scalp to record and amplify the EEG, or brainwaves and control auditory, visual, and/or tactile feedback which allows learning to take place. This operant learning initiates self-regulation and enhances relaxation, both necessary components of good brain function.
