Neurocore Attempts To Treat Depression Via Neurofeedback

Written by

Back in the mid-1930’s, Frederick Lemere became one of the first scientists ever to study the effects of neurofeedback on patients suffering from depression but could this research be used to develop more effective methods for treatments? Well, Neurocore certainly seems to think so. Scientists at Neurocore have been using his research to develop the most effective methods for treating depression and, thus far, they seem to be having much success in this field. In fact, out of the 292 patients they’ve already treated, over four-fifths of them have noted a significant alleviation in their symptoms while over half of them have found that they no longer meet the requirements necessary to be considered a patient with depression.

As a result, they have recently opened a medication-free depression treatment program which is available to anyone who needs it. As part of this new program, scientists at Neurocore will be analyzing the brainwaves of their patients via Qeeg technology and use their findings to hone in on the inherent causes of depression. Additionally, they will be using a rating scale known as the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment otherwise known as ASEBA. Many scientists believe the symptoms of depression are often linked to brain chemistry, genetics, and other hereditary factors. They’ve also found that an increase in alpha activity is often an indication of depression.

Many studies have indicated that there are over 10 million adults in the US alone currently living with depression which has made Neurocore realize this research is all the more paramount. One of the noticeable indicators of a person suffering from depression is a drastic change in personality and functionality. Traditional treatments for depression have often involved going to see a therapist, taking some antidepressants or any combination thereof. Throughout the entire spectrum of depression, scientists have confirmed that clinical depression is the most severe type that a patient can experience. Although the exact causes of depression are not currently known, Neurocore hopes this new treatment program will help them to be able to determine what exactly leads to someone experiencing depression and cure it.
