As we age, the ability for our brain to remain focused on a task or even interprets new information and store it properly begins to slow down. This is most evident whenever doing a repetitive task, the muscle memory kicks in and the brain begins to drift off and stop focusing on the immediate task.
Over the course of the past two decades we have learned more about the human brain and how it works than we have learned throughout the entirety of recorded medical and scientific history. Neurocore is one example of a company that is utilizing this information and helping the human brain work optimally.

Neurocore is working with Groupon to make their assessment services more accessible to any and all who want to improve their brain function. The first option costs $99 and allows you to set up your assessment without any scheduling restrictions, normally $250.
The second option costs $49 and is almost exactly the same as the first option but with a slight difference in that you must schedule your assessment on a weekday, Monday through Friday before 4:00 p.m. See more information about Neurocore at Linkedin.com.
The assessment begins with a simple exam called a qEEG, Quantitative Electroencephalogram which involves a small cap with diodes that are attached to your scalp with conductive gel. This allows the activity of your brain to be monitored and measured with amazing accuracy.
The qEEG allows for a 19-point measurement of your brain, enabling precise mapping of your brain’s unique functionality. Analyzing both brain speed as well as connectivity allows neurocore’s clinical specialists to have an accurate picture of what is causing your challenges or unwanted symptoms.
The second portion of the assessment if called the HRV, Heart Rate Variability and this test measures your respiratory system and cardiovascular system to determine their functionality and whether or not they are working effectively together.
The final portion of the assessment is the IVA, Integrated Visual and Auditory Continuous Performance Test which is specially designed to determine the presence of any attention disorders. It measures your brain’s attention, sensory processing as well as impulsivity and gives clinicians a special insight into how your brain works.
