There are a few key factors that distinguish NeurOptimal® from other neurofeedback systems:
1. NeurOptimal® is effective because it is designed to work best with your individual brain.
It does not attempt to “fix” predetermined conditions or pin down specific problems. This was a limitation in many earlier neurofeedback systems. Often, resolving one problem in one area could cause problems elsewhere. The heart of the NeurOptimal® system - Dynamical Neurofeedback® - is a proprietary technology based in neuroscience and specifically designed with the naturally non-linear function of the human brain in mind. NeurOptimal® is built to harness the incredibly dynamic nature of your brain in a way other systems simply cannot match.
As a result, this neurofeedback system can be used effectively to address a wide array of complaints without specifically “targeting” them from the outset of the training. Your brain inherently knows how to organise itself to function optimally, once it is made aware of how it's behaving.
The technology simply “mirrors” and provides information to the brain about its behaviour in real-time (256x per second).
2. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is extremely safe.
Research shows your own brain “knows best” and therefore the NeurOptimal® brain training system does not force or “push” the brain in any one direction. Basically, Dynamical Neurofeedback® provides your brain with the information it needs to correct itself and function at its most optimal. NeurOptimal® simply enables your own brain’s natural process of self-correction. Even pregnant women, infants and yes, animals can do NeurOptimal®.
In traditional nuerofeedback systems, the trainer is making those decisions on behalf of the brain, but in NeurOptimal, the technology is allowing your brain to do it for you. Your brain itself can make decisions on behalf of itself.
People just start to notice their problems and stuckness just melt away.
3. NeurOptimal® requires no effort on the user’s part.
Some brain training systems require the user to “interact” by playing games or solve puzzles during sessions. This additional level of interaction is unnecessary with the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system. During a training session, you can simply relax and enjoy.
