Brain Mapping

We use tests (approximately 1 hour assessment) to map areas of weakness in the neurocognitive processes in the neurodivergent person. After assessment, we provide an easy to interpret intervention plan. These plan include succinct recommendations (includes speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, auditory music therapy, processing and cognitive training, physician specialist evaluation) with the goal of helping the neurodivergent person function in their environment (work, social life, school, etc.) and solve their person-specific work/school problem.

Connective Tissue/ Hypermobility / Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

In the hypermobile population, there is brain fog, co-occurring neurodiversity, and brain injury. Brain mapping can help you figure out what areas of the brain can benefit from further assistance and what can be done to help those areas of the brain.


In 2021 The Brain Cell was born when Josh Arce, Music Therapist and Dr. Tina Wang were volunteering for Claremont Sunrise Rotary at a local continuation high school. They asked the question, "How can we best serve the neurodivergent population in the context of their life experiences, environments and medical conditions?”

The Brain Cell is the synergy of both Josh's experience working as a music therapist and in law and advocacy for people with neurocognitive differences and Dr. Wang's experience working as a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Physician with people with Hypermobile Spectrum Disorders and Ehler-Danlos Syndromes, populations with high rates of neurodivergence.

Together, they strive to bring their multifaceted experiences and out-of-the-box neurodivergent thinking to help individuals like them live their best lives.

Auditory music therapy

Auditory music therapy is a rhythmic sensory stimulation. Auditory music therapy stimulates the senses in a periodic manner within a range of targeted frequencies. Targeted frequencies plus sound are delivered through modified music that is a form of rhythmic sensory stimulation and has demonstrated utility in managing pain, concentration, mood, and bowel problems. Auditory music therapy can help pain in hEDS, improve cognitive/affective effects and brain function through the neural entrainment of rhythmic stimuli and sensory inhibition of pain. Auditory music therapy can help improve cognitive and affective effects and brain function through the neural entrainment of rhythmic stimuli.


The Brain Cell strives to help the neurodiversity learn about their differences and adapt in a world made for “neurotypicals”. Neurodiversity is the concept that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways and that there is no one "right" way of thinking, learning. The word neurodiversity refers to the diversity of all people, but was originally used in regards to autism spectrum disorder, ADHD or learning disabilities. The neurodiversity movement emerged during the 1990s, aiming to increase acceptance and inclusion of all people including those with neurological differences.
