Neurocore is the name of several brain performance centers based in the United States of America The centers analyze the performance of the patient’s brain and create reports in the form of assessments.
The Neurcore analyze the brainwaves of the person using qEEG technology, examine the breathing and heart rate as well as perform other tests in order to create a better picture of what is going on in the patient’s brain.
One of the illnesses that Neurocore treats is depression which is the second most detrimental illness in the United States after cancer. Depression needs to be addressed medically as it is not just sadness as some people think. Yet, there is a stigma around this mental illness which makes millions of people feel like they should not reach out for help from parents, friends, loved ones, and doctors.
