NeurOptimal® Brain Training System

brain training

 

NeurOptimal® monitors the electrical activity of your brain, reminding your brain about what it’s doing so your brain can function more optimally.

When brain activity shows signs of turbulence, the music within the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback software is momentarily interrupted. This subtle cue alerts your brain that it is operating inefficiently.  With repeated training sessions, the brain learns to “reset” itself and function more smoothly.  All of this learning is non-invasive and happens outside your conscious awareness. Over time, NeurOptimal® adjusts itself automatically in response to your brain’s activity, individualizing the training microsecond by microsecond to your own brain’s functioning.

Sound simple?  That’s because it is simple.  The true complexity of the neurofeedback training is embedded in the NeurOptimal® software.

Just think of NeurOptimal® as an Olympic gymnastics coach or yoga instructor. Like a human teacher, the neurofeedback machine points out and corrects your form as you train. As you get better, the level of brain training difficulty increases automatically.  With practice, your brain fitness (i.e. brain flexibility and resilience) naturally improves and becomes more natural and efficient. Because of the training, you can maintain a healthy brain and become more effective in your personal and professional life.
