Q. Who are the Founders of NeurOptimal? / by Meeray Ghaly

A. Dr Valdeane Brown & Dr Susan Brown

Neurofeedback was first developed in the early 1970’s as a tool to assist patients with epilepsy.

It was so successful that its use was extended to patients with a wide range of clinical conditions, including ADHD, depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury and many more. 

After years of further research, the NeurOptimal® form of neurofeedback was subsequently developed in the 1990’s by the Zengar Corporation in Canada with the intent of working with the brain’s natural healing capacity. 

There are over 2,000 NeurOptimal® systems in place worldwide. NeurOptimal® is considered by many to be the most highly evolved form of neurofeedback available today - and the world’s first and only Dynamical Neurofeedback™ brain training system.

After more than 40 years in the neuroscience field and related disciplines, Dr. Valdeane Brown and Dr. Susan Cheshire Brown, Zengar Institute founders, have developed a safe, effective system that gives feedback directly to your brain allowing it to regulate itself more efficiently.

By simply offering the brain information about its own activity,

NeurOptimal® helps the brain re-organise, thereby activating its own intrinsic healing wisdom.


With a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a background in mathematics, physics, computer programming, philosophy, yoga, meditation and martial arts, Dr. Valdene Brown developed the Five Phase Model and is the co-creator with his wife Dr Sue Brown of the Period 3 Approach to Clinical Neurofeedback.

 I value that Zengar Institute reflects the mission of it’s founders; to relieve suffering. Dr. Valdene Brown's vision in bringing NeurOptimal® to the world is to make personal transformation effortless and available to all.


In this webinar Dr Valdeane Brown presents the science Behind NeurOptimal® technology.
