From 2004 – 2020 Neurocore Brain Performance Centers’ clients welcomed us to come alongside them as they worked toward improved mental health. We value the relationships we built as we worked closely with clients to help them achieve their goals through clear, data driven diagnostics and science-based treatments.

We are proud of the impact we had in the communities we served and proud of the Neurocore team who, every day, delivered our services with excellence.

We are also proud of the outcomes we delivered. Linked below are Neurocore’s peer reviewed published studies about the efficacy of our programs for ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, and Memory Loss.

In addition to Neurocore’s publications, there is a significant body of research surrounding the efficacy of heart rate variability biofeedback and neurofeedback for improving mental health in a variety of areas, several of which can be found below. We encourage you to explore these publications as you seek solutions for the challenges you might be encountering today.
