Brain to Behavior Program

The Brain to Behav­ior Neu­ro­science Pro­gram (B2B) embod­ies an empir­i­cal­ly dri­ven, dis­tin­guished, and com­pre­hen­sive frame­work to map the unique com­po­si­tion of the brain. The brain is made up of over 100 bil­lion cells and is respon­si­ble for pro­cess­ing, inte­grat­ing, and com­mu­ni­cat­ing sen­so­ry infor­ma­tion, most bod­i­ly func­tions, as well as behav­ior among the many things gov­erned by the brain. Like with fin­ger­prints, no two peo­ple have the same brain anato­my and func­tion­ing. The unique­ness of each brain is a result of a com­plex com­bi­na­tion of genet­ic fac­tors and indi­vid­ual life expe­ri­ences. Expe­ri­ences and life cir­cum­stances influ­ence the anato­my of the brain over a life­time. Objec­tive neu­ro-based tools can be uti­lized to indi­vid­u­al­ly map the brain to inform an indi­vid­u­al­ized-treat­­ment plan. Expe­ri­ences make their mark on the brain through­out life; the Brain to Behav­ior team col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly works togeth­er with each patient to make dynam­ic, healthy, pos­i­tive, and last­ing changes to the brain and over­all life.

The B2B Pro­gram works with the patient to under­stand bio­log­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal, social, and spir­i­tu­al facets of the individual. 

The eval­u­a­tions in this process are sup­port­ed by sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly val­i­dat­ed meth­ods. The dis­cov­er­ies are used to iden­ti­fy the pos­i­tive and or neg­a­tive impacts on the individual’s health and wellness. 

About our Team 

The B2B Pro­gram is direct­ed and devel­oped by clin­i­cal neu­ro­sci­en­tist and psy­chol­o­gist, Dr. Lukasz M Konop­ka. We are com­prised of a mul­ti-dis­­­ci­­pline care team who are pas­sion­ate about your care. We are life­long learn­ers who par­tic­i­pate in con­tin­u­al edu­ca­tion and sci­en­tif­ic inquiries, and are com­mit­ted to our life’s work of help­ing indi­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies live ful­fill­ing lives. 

What can I expect from the B2B program?

The B2B pro­gram focus­es on pro­mot­ing your strengths and man­ag­ing your view of weak­ness. You will learn to mod­i­fy behav­ioral and emo­tion­al bar­ri­ers, to rewire and reframe thought process­es that pre­vent you from liv­ing a pro­duc­tive life.

The pro­gram also cen­ters on under­stand­ing your per­son­al iden­ti­ty. Patients will learn how to iden­ti­fy, inter­pret and man­age exter­nal and inter­nal emo­tion­al trig­gers, make sound deci­sions and enhance com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills through empa­thet­ic lis­ten­ing and ques­tion­ing. These skills give the patient flex­i­bil­i­ty and oppor­tu­ni­ty to respond to life chal­lenges effec­tive­ly and appropriately. 

What treat­ments are used in the B2B program?

Our patient-cen­tered approach may com­bine the use of sev­er­al modal­i­ties pro­vid­ed by a team of clin­i­cians. Our providers are as unique as our patients, each has spe­cif­ic skills and ther­a­peu­tic approach­es, which are matched to treat the spe­cif­ic needs of the patient. 

  • Neurofeedback/​biofeedback - encour­ages your brain to enter states that pro­mote behav­iors such as relax­ation, con­cen­tra­tion, med­i­ta­tion, atten­tion, and focus. Patients gain the abil­i­ty to con­trol brain activ­i­ty, influ­ence emotions/​body states and man­age behaviors. 
  • Mind­ful­ness — learn­ing effec­tive forms of self-aware­­ness, rec­og­niz­ing being in the moment and gain­ing con­trol and free­dom of your thinking. 
  • Cog­ni­­tive-Behav­io­ral ther­a­py - offers skills to restruc­ture exist­ing neg­a­tive cog­ni­tive schemas, improve self-aware­­ness, impulse-con­trol through top down approach and devel­op the abil­i­ty for emo­tion­al management. 
  • Art Ther­a­py — access­es areas of your­self that are non-ver­bal or dif­fi­cult to artic­u­late oth­er­wise. No art expe­ri­ence is required to par­tic­i­pate in the ther­a­peu­tic effects of cre­ative expression. 
  • Fam­i­ly Ther­a­py – par­tic­i­pate in ther­a­peu­tic work with an indi­vid­u­als fam­i­ly to under­stand impacts and cre­ate mean­ing­ful change in the fam­i­ly dynam­ic and ways in which the fam­i­ly com­mu­ni­cates, man­ages and operates. 
  • Group Ther­a­py – par­tic­i­pate in ther­a­peu­tic work with oth­er indi­vid­u­als in a group set­ting fos­ter­ing peer feed­back and learning. 
  • Phar­ma­cother­a­py – phar­ma­co­log­i­cal inter­ven­tions may be pre­scribed to enhance behav­ioral changes and address an imbal­ance in brain bio­chem­istry, neu­ro­trans­mit­ter systems.

What types of eval­u­a­tion are uti­lized in the B2B Program?

Four types of approach­es are used to eval­u­ate and col­lect infor­ma­tion from participants.

  • Bio­log­i­cal Eval­u­a­tion — med­ical his­to­ry, genom­ic test­ing, elec­tro­phys­i­o­log­i­cal test­ing (quan­ti­ta­tive elec­troen­cephalog­ra­phy or qEEG) and an analy­sis of cog­ni­tive, emo­tion­al, and phar­ma­co­log­i­cal con­di­tions. Addi­tion­al­ly, oth­er func­tion­al (PET, SPECT, fMRI) and struc­tur­al neu­roimag­ing meth­ods (MRI) may be utilized. 
  • Psy­cho­log­i­cal Eval­u­a­tion — Assess­ments can include infor­mal tests, school records/​reports, obser­va­tion­al data, behav­ioral assess­ments, and stan­dard­ized neu­ro-psy­­cho­log­i­­cal and phys­i­o­log­i­cal tests. 
  • Social Eval­u­a­tion — A detailed inter­view with your sup­port sys­tem (friends, fam­i­ly, school and others). 
  • Spir­i­tu­al Eval­u­a­tion - Iden­ti­fies your par­tic­i­pa­tion in a belief system(s) and is used to rec­og­nize the pos­i­tive and or neg­a­tive impacts on your health and wellness. 

What types of eval­u­a­tion are uti­lized in the B2B Program?

We work with peo­ple of all ages, through­out the life span. Each patient receives a unique and indi­vid­u­al­ized treat­ment. The ide­al patient is com­mit­ted and will­ing to engage in the ther­a­peu­tic process. The most suc­cess­ful patients are will­ing to learn about one’s self, one’s per­son­al expe­ri­ences and is moti­vat­ed for change. 

What can B2B patients do out­side of the program?

Patients are required to active­ly par­tic­i­pate in ther­a­peu­tic process­es out­side the B2B Pro­gram. Healthy, ben­e­fi­cial activ­i­ties may include: 

  • Estab­lish­ing and main­tain­ing prop­er sleep hygiene 
  • Dai­ly phys­i­cal activity 
  • Bal­anced nutrition 
  • Jour­nal­ing
  • Using Alpha Stim Tech­nol­o­gy (deliv­ers microcur­rent to brain which relieves anx­i­ety, nor­mal­izes mood, and helps you sleep better) 
  • Med­i­tat­ing
  • Reflect­ing on health and wellness 
  • Prac­tic­ing and exer­cis­ing non­judg­men­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills
