We’re excited to offer Neurometrics, our comprehensive brain health service delivered by our director of therapeutic neuroscience, Dr. Simon Andrew Whitton. This service involves a specifically designed cognitive evaluation and a non-invasive brain scan using electroencephalography (EEG). With these tools, we can provide you with a clear picture of your brain’s health. From your established baseline, we can then recommend personalized therapies and track your progress toward optimal brain function. Our techniques are based on decades of neuroscientific studies and our continual review of the ever-evolving literature.

What purpose does Neurometrics fulfill?

Cognitive testing and training, along with insights from EEG, can benefit a wide range of individuals. These include:

Students: To enhance learning abilities and academic performance.

Professionals: To improve focus, decision-making, and productivity.

Elderly individuals: To maintain cognitive function and delay age-related decline.

People with cognitive impairments: To identify specific issues and tailor interventions for conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression, and traumatic brain injuries.

Athletes: To optimize mental performance and reaction times.

What is QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalography):

QEEG is a brain imaging technique that measures electrical activity in the brain. By analyzing these electrical patterns, QEEG provides detailed insights into brain function and identifies any abnormalities. This information is used to create a personalized map of brain activity, which can guide interventions to optimize brain performance.

What is Neurofeeback?

Neurofeedback is a therapeutic technique that uses real-time monitoring of brain activity to help individuals learn how to regulate their brain function. By providing immediate feedback, often through visual or auditory signals, neurofeedback trains the brain to develop healthier activity patterns. This can improve cognitive function, enhance mental clarity, and support overall brain optimization.

What Is Cognitive Function?

Cognitive function refers to the mental processes by which we acquire knowledge and understanding, including several key components:

Memory: The ability to store, retain, and recall information and past experiences.

Attention: The capacity to focus on specific stimuli or tasks while ignoring distractions.

Problem-solving: The process of finding solutions to difficult or complex issues.

Decision-making: The ability to choose between different courses of action based on reasoning and judgment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended service?

Insight into your cognitive abilities and EEG recording are separate services that can begin together, with one visit to our clinic. We recommend utilizing both services for your comprehensive baseline assessment.

How will I get the results of my assessment?

We will schedule a return visit, when you will receive a full report of our findings and we can discuss the analyses and our recommendations.

What are some common recommendations?

Based on any abnormal findings, we often recommend (and offer) cognitive and perceptual training, neurofeedback, cognitive behavioral modification, and supplementation.
