Apart from being the most complex and adaptable organs in a human body, the brain controls all the conscious and unconscious behaviors in the human body. This is made possible by a large number of neurons networked in such a way that the signals are used to regulate electricity in the brain chemically. The EEG or quantitative electroencephalography is a technology’s rate of advancement, which has made it possible for scientists to map the organ and also study other functions like neurofeedback with great understanding.

Neurofeedback that measures brainwaves electronically has been used to advance the field of Neurotherapy in the treatment of disorders like ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). This is a condition in children that can stay in the body up to adulthood.
Neurofeedback has not been as smooth as it may seem. The first publication suggesting the presence of the relationship between the brain and electricity was made in the 1920s by Hans Berger, the research classified brain waves into two that is Alfa waves and Beta waves, which have been used to determine the degree of brainwaves. The EEG later came in the 1960s but was not useful since it required the use of a computer, it was made possible in the 1990s before that brain waves had to be studied visually.

The ULCA Brain Research Institute was the first to use computers in this field of study; it was also the first institution to compile a brain maps library further supporting the study of this magnificent organ. This has led to the founding of institutions like Neurocore Brain Performance Centers, which provides data on brain assessment and also training programs in the said field, for example, the HRV training that involves the use of therapeutic breathing to train the brain subconsciously. This helps patients improve the connections between their mind and bodies, which is healthy. Through making proper connections, the patients can enhance the capacity of the brain to perform its activities efficiently.
Neurocore has partnered with The Portland Trail Brazers, which brought about program facilities that can now train the brain on how to function appropriately.
