Daniel Bricker

With a foundation in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, I transitioned from a career as a collegiate and professional athlete to pursue my passion for research. My expertise lies in investigating behavioral, neuropsychological, and psychopathological abnormalities through innovative and alternative research practices. I am driven by a commitment to contribute to advancements in our understanding of human behavior and cognition, to positively impact individuals' lives.

I currently serve as the Research Project Manager and Wellness Director at Universal Neurological Care in Jacksonville. Our practice specializes in the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) through a comprehensive approach that emphasizes lifestyle and wellness interventions for rehabilitation. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and advanced instruments, we strive to achieve the highest standards in neural diagnostics and identify optimal treatment protocols for our patients.

My role involves spearheading advanced research projects focused on TBI treatment, utilizing cutting-edge neural diagnostics to drive scientific excellence and achieve superior patient outcomes. I develop and implement comprehensive lifestyle and wellness protocols tailored for TBI self-rehabilitation, leveraging state-of-the-art technologies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, photobiomodulation, and molecular hydrogen treatments to support holistic recovery.

Our goal is to enhance patient outcomes through an integrative approach that combines traditional neurological practices with innovative wellness strategies. By focusing on both advanced instrumentation and holistic methodologies, we aim to provide a comprehensive pathway to recovery and improved quality of life for individuals suffering from brain injuries.
