Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be compared to having 50 radio stations playing all at the same time. It’s easy to imagine the confusion that causes. The afflicted person is continually asking themselves, “Which station should I listen to? Which one should I focus on?”
Neurofeedback can be used as a training procedure to teach people with ADHD how to control their own brainwaves and to find a sense of balance, harmony, and order to their thoughts and reactions.

Autistic people see the world very differently than others. Some liken it to being in a prison — a separation from the world. But it’s really more like being out of sync with everything and everybody else. Ordinary sights and sounds can cause incredible pain. Ordinary speech can cause utter confusion.
BrainCoreTX helps bring the autistic person’s world into alignment with our own — by retraining the mind without chemical medicines or other invasive procedures.
Although much about the cause of migraines isn’t understood, research shows that they may be caused by “hyper-aroused” brainwave activity. And a number of quality studies have been published that show the effectiveness of neurofeedback in alleviating headaches without the use of any medications.
This is because, when you have information on what your brain waves are doing, your brain can use that information to change how it works, and reduce your discomfort.
BraincoreTX provides a non-invasive, drugless approach which addresses neurological conditions, including, but not limited to:
- panic attacks
- tension headaches
- and PTSD.
Brain dysregulation is a condition which results from physical, chemical, emotional or mental stress, as well as some predispositions. The BrainCore technology and science is based on a training procedure that effectively regulates the nervous system providing proven relief of conditions associated with brainwave dysregulation.
Simply put, it is a guided exercise for the brain. The goal is to transform an unhealthy brainwave into a normal, healthy, organized brainwave. It is completely noninvasive and is considered by the Food and Drug Administration to be safe. Neurofeedback has NEVER produced a serious side effect since it was first discovered over 40 years ago.

What is Neurofeedback used for?
Over 40 years of peer reviewed, university based research has demonstrated the efficacy of neurofeedback in addressing many neurological conditions, including, but not limited to:
- panic attacks
- chronic pain
- tension headache
- PTSD, depression
- learning disorders
Although this approach can be used to regulate many areas, Dr. Barnett’s passion came from personal experience. Having experienced a benign brain tumor herself, as well as her son being diagnosed with ADHD, she began to research alternative treatments. We have focused on these areas.

Drugs call psycho-stimulants or stimulants have been used to effectively treat ADHD for years. They work by increasing the production of two neurotransmitters – dopamine and norepinephrine. Medicine help users to focus their thoughts and ignore distractions. Stimulant medications are effective in 70% to 80% of patients. However there are short and long term effects related to these drugs. The most common side effects of ADHD drugs include: decreased appetite, sleep problems, headaches, jitteriness, social withdrawal, stomach aches. Neaurofeedback is a training procedure designed to teach children with ADHD how to control their own brainwaves bringing balance, harmony and regulation to the brain. The goal is to transform unhealthy brainwave pattern into a healthy one.
Although much about the cause of migraines isn’t understood, genetics and environmental factors seem to both play a role. A migraine headache can cause intense throbbing or pulsing in one area of the head and is commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and be so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down. Simple Over the counter pain relievers are usually the first line of treatment for reducing the pain. Prescription medications don’t cure headaches; they just relieve the symptoms temporarily. In a study, using Neurofeedback to regulate migraines, 70% of the participants experienced at least a 50% reduction in severity and frequency of headaches.
Autism Medications, however successful, generally carry unwanted side effects. Often a patient will have one drug to treat a single problem and two other drugs to treat the side effects of the first drug. As long as a patient is on the medication, some improvement is noticed. But, if the medication is discontinued, there is high probability of a return to the former state. Research over the past 50 years has demonstrated that inappropriate brainwave activity is at the core of most of these childhood disorders. Neurofeedback is a sophisticated form of biofeedback that actually trains the brain to normalize the brainwaves and make them flexible and adaptable to situational needs.
How Long Does it Take to Get Results?
Trainees typically come for 30 sessions of training. Trainees come twice a week or more. Each session is 30-45 minutes long. They typically begin to see changes in about 5-8 sessions.
Neurofeedback should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used.Dr. Frank H. Duffy
The goal of neurofeedback is not to diagnose or treat a particular condition. The goal is to transform unhealthy, dysregulated brainwave pattern into a normal, healthy, organized pattern. When you have information on what your brain waves are doing, your brain can use that information to change how it works.
I just have to tell you about our day. We had a graduation ceremony today at A&M Commerce in the gym. We had to get up early and arrived 35 minutes early. G was able to sit through the entire ceremony and then walk through a sea of people to get out. We then went to our friends house for a graduation party. She did great! Normally anything like that would be overwhelming and I would have had to take her out at some point, or she would be in tears. I am excited to see how she continues to improve!BW
I have been working with G for over a year and diagnosed her with ADHD and Autism. We made some progress in the beginning of therapy, but it was slow. I referred her to BrainCoreTX and Dr. Barnett, to see if Neurofeedback could help the counseling process along. As soon as a couple of BrainCore training sessions, G demonstrated improved mood, improved concentration, and was more talkative in therapy. I am pleased that the combination of BrainCore therapy and counseling has had a positive impact and can’t wait to see what the future holds for her!Jason Hughes, LPC-S, NCC
Our child has fine motor skills issues and has never been able to ride a tricycle, big wheel, or bicycle. Just could not get the rotation movement down. After training with BrainCore TX our child can ride a bicycle. Confidence has greatly improved. Seeing improvement in ADHD issues as well.XX
