The APEX Day Of Discovery

Day of Discovery Brain Assessment 

  • Is your brain not working as it used to?
  • Have you been struggling with a recent or lifelong brain performance issue that you want answers for?
  • Or, do you simply want to know how well your brain is working to ensure it is serving you optimally?
  • If you knew there was something you could do to tell, would you do it?

    APEX Brain Centers’ comprehensive ‘Day of Discovery’ 8-part brain assessment is just what you’ve been looking for.

What is it?

The Day of Discovery is an extremely valuable and critical investment in your health, longevity, and prosperity. Fear of a declining brain is one of the top issues of our time, and this unique opportunity puts the power of informed guidance in your hands to make the best choices possible for your brain and body health. By investigating numerous ‘biomarkers’ of brain health and efficiency, we can connect the dots between your experience of life and your current state of brain and body function.

Your Day of Discovery includes the following 8 components:

  1. Comprehensive history and review of previous diagnostic testing
  2. Comprehensive neurological exam looking at functions of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system
  3. Quantitative EEG (qEEG) for measurement of brainwave activity
  4. Cognitive testing to assess memory, attention, executive function, and more
  5. Video-Oculography (VOG) for detailed assessment of eye movements
  6. Dynamic posturography for investigation of multiple aspects of balance
  7. Interactive Metronome testing of mental and physical timing capabilities
  8. Review of all testing with precise recommendations for appropriate intervention

What should I expect and how do I prepare?

Your Day of Discovery will take anywhere from 4-6 hours depending on physical ability, levels of fitness and fatigue, technical factors, and any unforeseen circumstances. You will spend the day in our office and should pack a healthy lunch and snacks depending on the time of day. You should try your best to obtain quality sleep. Refrain from alcohol, recreational drug, or cigarette intake, maintain adequate hydration, eat a healthy breakfast the morning of testing, bring copies of any pertinent diagnostic tests with you, be on time to ensure the smoothest of transitions throughout the day, not wear any skincare products, make-up, or hair gel, and bring a positive and proactive attitude with you as this day is designed to empower you with critical information to help you create positive change in your life.

    I know of someone who has a son that suffered a stroke. Would he be if it from services as such? He is paralyzed on one side. His mom is so frustrated with no one seeming to care and act with urgency on physical therapy.

    Could you advise please.

    Would this test be appropriate for someone who has suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. From the get go, we have received so many conflicting stories. First hospital concerned with spine, moved our loved one 3 days later to new hospital and immediately they were concerned about brain and said he suffered an Ischemic Hypoxic Brain Injury. Normal CT scans, abnormal EEG. He is off ventilator, CT collar on, and also on a tracheostomy.

    I feel they have given up on him and currently is not tolerating 3 hour rule in order to get admitted to any in patient rehab facility.

    We live in St. Peters MO (30 minutes west of

      Denise:

      So sorry to hear of your son’s ordeal.

      This so often is a very confusing and frustrating time for so many in your position.

      Yes, this type of testing would be well suited for his needs and, more importantly, will help direct immediate intensive care for him.

      Best to call us at 828.708.5274 for free brief consultation to advise you on how best to proceed.

      Take care!
