Dr. Curtis Cripe Talks About Neurological Issues in Children


A neuroengineer primarily focuses in behavioral medicine, Dr. Curtis Cripe’s educational and professional actions expand a number of disciplines that include neuro-engineering, aerospace engineering, psycho-physiology, psychology, addiction recovery, software development and programming, child neurodevelopment and brain injury. At present, he is Science Research and Development Director of NTL Group and guides the team on brain repair and cognitive for head injury, addiction, and developmental hindrances.

Dr. Curtis Cripe explains the common signs of brain activity related problems especially in children

Dr. Curtis Cripe is a neuroengineer with a specialization in child neurodevelopment. As the head of the Research and Development department of the NTL group, he discovers certain neurological disorders in children. He says that human brain, neuron, and brain activity related problems in children can take place because of a number of reasons. In most of the cases, these problems are found right from the birth, or they may happen prior to birth during the pregnancy of the mother. Moreover troubles during delivery or premature delivery can cause various types of brain injuries which may cause neurological issues. These issues can have an influence on the cells, physiology, structures and memories of the children. It is always important to get these issues treated as fast as possible as a delay may cause serious problem to the brain.

Mentioned below are the common forms of neurological problems that are found in children:

  • Malformations of numerous parts of the brain, for example the Galen vein, can cause serious neurological issues.
  • Hemorrhages can occur in several parts of the brain, and may range in severity based on the size of the area affected by bleeding.
  • Asphyxia occurs in case the infant does not receive oxygen after, before, or during birth.
  • Seizures are regarded as one of the most common neurological problems in children which can range in severity based on the accurate cause.

Since the brain of the child is so fragile and flexible, neurological problems can cause permanent damage. Although small injuries often can be treated with moderately easy lasting effects, severe injuries may require specialized care all through the life. Lasting effects of brain activity problems in children can affect the physical mobility, memory and structure of the brain.

As a neuroengineer specialized in behavioral medicine, Dr. Curtis Cripe founded the Crossroads Institute which uses telemedicine brain training delivery systems to assist children with developmental and learning disorders and offer programs for adults with a vast range of psychosomatic problems which may include shocking addiction and brain injury. At present, Dr. Cripe leads the Research and Development for NTL Group as the developer of the NeuroCoach and Neuro Codex for brain and cognitive repair.

Apart from all these, Dr. Cripe is the author of two peer reviewed papers, two chapters, as well as a lifetime member of a non-profit organization, the Golden Key International Honor Society. Besides this he has also been designated as INPP instructor for brain development, Certified Peak Performance Instructor as well as Certified Neurotherapy Instructor.
