Q. What is the NeuroCodeX® Brain Map and Cognitive Analysis and the NeuroCoach® program?
A. A brain-based healing and development technology designed to facilitate remediation, repair, or improvement of brain functioning. NeuroCodeX® and NeuroCoach® are registered trademarks of the NTL Group and used by license.
NeuroCodeX® is a cognitive assessment and evaluation utilizing neuro-imaging techniques that measure neuro-electric biomarkers that emanate from the brain by analyzing over 300-brain functions. These measurements compute electrical impulses that the brain naturally produces and then objectively show if they are “in balance” or “out of balance”. If the electrical impulses are out of balance, the map and full assessment will precisely show where the imbalances are located and what effect it will have on the individual’s thinking, processing, and brain functioning ability.
NeuroCoach® is based on the results of NeuroCodeX®. Clients in our Smart Brain Solution program is given specific remediation, repair, or improvement protocols. These protocols are based on the needs of the client, brain dysfunction, and physiology. The heart of Smart Brain Solution programs is NeuroCoach®, a computer based tool used to retrain the brain to normalized function and development. This tool is used for Neurodevelopment, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Recovery and Addiction as well as overall improvement in the health of the brain.
Q. Who should get a NeuroCodeX® Assessment?
A. Adults and kids!
Adults and adolescents who suffer from addictions, emotional trauma, health trauma, physical trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) through accident, and/or addictive personality traits are good candidates for NeuroCodeX®.
Kids who have behavioral challenges, learning/educational challenges, ADD/ADHD, developmental delays, or social maturation delays are good candidates for NeuroCodeX® brain mapping and cognitive assessment.
Q. What results can be expected?
A. For adults, positive results are seen as an increase in IQ (average of 15 or greater points in IQ after 20+ sessions), increases in self-regulation, self-control, and impulse control.
For kids, the program’s goal is to help the individual’s brain catch up with an age appropriate developmental time line. Positive results are seen in improved behaviors, greater resiliency under stress, self-regulation, thinking abilities, decision making, memory, recall, improved impulsivity, better grades and an increase in IQ (average of 15 or greater points in IQ after 20+ sessions).
These changes directly affect the client’s ability to think and become more resilient to stresses of everyday life. In other words: The client’s brain and its ability will be primed and ready to accept and accommodate the interventions provided by their therapists.
Q. How long does the NeuroCodeX® Assessment and subsequent NeuroCoach® program take?
A. NeuroCodeX® (the evaluation, assessment and mapping) takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The NeuroCoach® program (based on the NeuroCodeX® analysis and results) typically shows the first significant changes within 10 sessions. We recommend that clients have at least 3 sessions weekly. Each session lasts approximately 1 hour. This will depend on the client, their needs, and their therapist. Long lasting changes take place between 4 and 6 months. These changes are seen as greater resiliency to stress, stronger self-regulation, stronger emotional stability, and greater impulse control.
Q. Is this an evidence-based technology?
A. Yes, NeuroCodeX® and NeuroCoach® are evidence based. All instruments have been properly psycho-metrically developed and accepted as evidence based measures. Many were developed by the National Institute of Health (NIH), New York University Brain Research Lab, or are FDA approved. None of the measures are experimental. Effective applications of these tools, methods, and techniques have been peer-reviewed and proven with multiple target populations, including AD/HD, memory, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. For the substance abuse and recovery populations these studies continue.
Q. What if I already have a therapist?
A. The beauty of Spectrum Brain Solutions is that you can choose to see one of our skilled clinicians or continue with your primary therapist/clinical team. The clinicians at Spectrum Brain Solutions are trained to incorporate the results of NeuroCodeX® and NeuroCoach® to maximize the therapeutic process. If you are currently established with a therapist/clinician, we can collaborate with that therapist/clinician.
