The human brain is one of the most versatile organs in the human system. It is the source of our feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and perception. It is made up of a hundred billions of neurons that modulate electrical activity via chemical signals. Advances in Electroencephalogram, neuro-feedback and brain mapping have led to a deeper understanding of how the brain functions. Large companies such as Neurocore have been using this understanding to improve mental apprehension and treat conditions such as ADHD. To understand more on Electroencephalogram here is a background story of both Neurotherapy and Electroencephalogram and how it has been used to treat some diseases.

Brain mapping or what is popularly known as Quantitative Electroencephalogram is a technique where EEG activity is recorded to a computer. Unlike the normal EEG technique that documents only electrical activity and brainwaves, the q Electroencephalogram uses statistics and algorithms to compare these variables with other individual databases. In earlier years the q Electroencephalogram was viewed and determined visually; this prevented any substantive progress. Currently, there has been an enormous growth in power circuit capability. Doctors who use the q Electroencephalogram can simulate the brain’s map through measurements and quantitative correlation.
History of Neuropathy
Neuro-feedback or Neurotherapy is where brainwaves use electrical computation is to help teach the brain to regulate itself. Through practice, the brain not only functions superbly but it also reduces unwanted activities.
Use of Neurotherapy to treat depression
According to 2016 report by the National Institute of Mental Health, USA had an estimated 10.3 million persons suffering from depression. The condition is characterized by a subsequent change in behavior and can last for two weeks or more. It is caused by several factors such as genes, chemistry, and hormones. Traditional treatments include the use of antidepressants and psychotherapy. With the advance of EEG, doctors have managed to treat depression with positive results being seen.

Use of Neurotherapy to treat ADHD
Attention, deficit hyperactivity disorder, is considered to be one of the most common neural diseases among children. This mental condition can last to adulthood, and it is characterized by inattentiveness and being hyperactive. Research has shown that this disorder is predominantly inherited, hence transferred through genetics. Research don by J Lubar in 1976 showed that SMR application of Neurotherapy to have a definite improvement on a child diagnosed with ADHD.
