Professional Objectives

  • Develop and replicate Concept Clinics Internationally
  • Design and generate research advancing applied functional neuroscience
  • Publish research documenting efficacy of novel methods integrating applied functional neuroscientific disciplines
  • Publish educational resources and provide personal and professional training for allied professionals to integrate applied functional neuroscientific principles.
  • Publish educational resources for the public, adult, pre-school, grade school and college age promoting knowledge and awareness of applied functional neuroscientific principles.

Professional Interests

Investigations into why Cortical hemispheric and sub-cortical central neurologic integrative states and functional metabolic capacity should be considered in various allied healthcare fields.

Investigations into the interrelatedness of cellular physiology with soft signs of sub-optimal function as seen in a functional neurological exam, taken into integrated perspective with Quantitative Electroencephalograpy.

Investigations and innovations into the utility and efficacy of using receptor tonus techniques to attenuate pre-synaptic drive promoting neural plasticity and restoring neurophysiological auto-regulation.

Investigations and innovations in the functional restoration in Neurologic disorders with a special interest in AD/HD and the Autistic Spectrum disorders, TBI (traumatic brain injuries) and SCI (spinal cord injuries), Dystonia’s and Vestibular Disorders.Dr. Gross has a special passion for children with AD/HD and the Aspergers/AutisticSpectrum Disorders as he sees this as the only patient population the healing of which will benefit generations to follow.
