As a prominent blogger, she was invited by Neurocore to check out their local Brain Performance Center so she could get a first-hand look at what they are all about. Neurocore helps people achieve better mental acuities, such as being better able to concentrate. This can be really helpful for everyone, especially someone like Michelle Olson-Rogers who is running her own business.

Neurocore offers their services to everyone ages five and up. It can treat mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, autism, and more. What Michelle Olson-Rogers hoped to get out of her sessions was finding out she multitasks and how often. The initial assessment showed her this information which she was pretty happy with.
The first thing Michelle noticed when going into the Brain Performance Center was that it wasn’t all like she was expecting. She was expecting a dry, sterile environment like a doctor’s office. Instead, each Neurocore location is much more modern with an open-setting. She says it felt a lot more like a great coffee shop than a medical facility. This type of environment is exactly what Neurocore is going for as they want their clients to feel comfortable when doing their sessions. Read more about Neurocore at glassdoor.com.
Each client first does an Initial Assessment. Michelle said this involved putting a gel on her skull and then having a brain cap placed over it. This brain cap has the EEG sensors which map the client’s brain. After this was completed, which she described as fun, the Brain Performance Center clinicians created a comprehensive report of what the brain scans and tests showed about her brain. A clinician then talked her through the report and showed what it meant.
Once someone completes this initial assessment they can come back in for sessions. Each session involves watching a movie and being rewarded for concentrating on it. This positive feedback results in a brain that can better handle stress and can much more easily concentrate on things.
