Nu-Brain® is dedicated to providing the best Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback service for you.  We are committed to your success.  As this is a very important time in your life, we must know and understand what it is that you need and how we can help you to accomplish your goals.  Therefore, to better understand and serve your needs, we do: 

(1)     An Intake Interview to become acquainted with your personal needs and what you would like to accomplish.

(2)     A Standardized Paper and Pen Assessment and Evaluation that helps to pinpoint the nature of the problems.  If you have had previous assessments, we would like to have a copy of these.  See below for details on assessments and evaluations.

(3)     Computerized evaluations that are specialized for measuring attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity. 

Following this, Nu-Brain® will set up an appointment for doing your brain map.  Doing a brain map takes about two hours.  It is best to be off medications, if possible, when doing a brain map.  Check with your MD as to the feasibility of being off meds (see page about medications).  On the day of the brain map, you should have a good night’s sleep, eat a meal, and have clean washed hair without conditioners and sprays.  In the office a brain map technician will then do a brain map with you.  This is accomplished by placing an elasticized cap on the head that is able to measure the brain wave activity.  After recording the EEG data, the technician sends the data information by Internet to our national experts who specialize in reading and interpreting it, and they process it with specialized computer normative data bases.  The finished brain map contains about 50 to 70 pages, along with a report of what is malfunctioning within the brain and instructions on how to retrain the brain to improve and overcome the problems.  All of these specialized reports are returned to Nu-Brain® and we review them with you. 

After the assessments, computerized evaluations, and the brain map reports are completed we schedule a time with you to review everything and make treatment recommendations.  Of course the main objective is to re-train the brain to optimally function in the way that it should, at its very best.  This is the goal and purpose of Nu-Brain®, to provide you with the ability to live a happy and productive life.
