Information Sessions

*see upcoming dates and locations below

Our information sessions are designed for parents, patients and professionals interested in the area of neuroplasticity and non-invasive, neuro-diagnostic technologies and treatment programs.

The Institute of Functional Neuroscience uses these evidenced based approaches to assist in optimising performance of your brain brain.

Our clinicians and staff will provide an entertaining and informative overview of how The Institute utilises neuroplasticity. They will also discuss the following questions:

  • What is Neuroplasticity?
  • What does current research tell us about the neuroplasticity and brain function?
  • How does Neuroplasticity change brain activity?
  • What conditions can we help with?
  • How does our approach to therapy complement other types of therapy?
  • What are the benefits of an individualized treatment program?
  • Can this program help me and/or my family?
  • And so much more!
