Here Govert Viergever, shares his experience with NeurOptimal for Peak Performance.
Most people understand how a good diet and exercise regimen can increase longevity and improve strength and stamina.
But what about your mental fitness?
The fact is, your brain — just like your body — can be trained for greater performance (or “strength”) and focus (or “stamina”).
A resilient and flexible brain improves our state of mind.
Focus and emotional balance is the key to peak performance in all areas.
Neurofeedback trains your brain to function more efficiently; improving mental functioning and emotional stability.
NeurOptimal neurofeedback training provides information to your brain about what it’s just done.
Your brain then uses this information to improve its overall functioning. A brain that is well 'tuned' up can run like an orchestra - nothing too loud, nothing too quiet, with a harmonic beat.
Restoring this natural symphony is part of what the training can provide.
Outstanding performers in all fields are taking advantage of neurofeedback technologies to reach their peak; from London's Royal College of Music to poker champions.
It is extensively used in elite sports; by professional golfers, Olympic athletes, and football clubs such as A.C Milan, Real Madrid, and Chelsea. Surgeons use it to improve concentration; corporate executives use it to increase emotional intelligence for improved leadership skills and better time management; others use it as a mental guide to experience being more present and self-aware.
Peak Performance Research & Articles
The purpose of this study was to ascertain measurable differences in academic outcomes among two groups of learners within a creative arts curriculum that employed a selfdirected, stress-reduced, and individualized curriculum. One group was provided with EEG neurofeedback and neuro-cognitive coaching for stress reduction, while the other was not. This study measured the rate of improvement in academic progress that a learner can achieve when formalized learning takes place in a stress-reduced arts-based learning environment with EEG neurofeedback and neurocognitive coaching.
