NeurOptimal® is the brainchild of PhD Clinical Psychologists Drs Val and Sue Brown. It is an advanced and automated form of neurofeedback that enables the brain to regulate itself. It is not a therapy, but instead a highly sophisticated brain training that enables the brain to regulate itself with the result of a range of therapeutic, wellbeing and performance benefits.
Because it is so easy to use, your choice will be whether to use it with clients in a professional setting, on yourself or with your children and family.
- Automated non-linear dynamical neurofeedback
- Completely safe – no side effects
- Enables the brain to self regulate
- Gives information to the brain via “pauses” in a soundtrack – no electrical stimulation or entrainment!
- Trains the brain with a range of potential positive outcomes including (note no specific claims are made – each brain will respond differently to NeurOptimal®)
- therapeutic benefits (e.g. help with stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, emotional problems)
- cognitive and learning benefit (e.g. sharper mind, better memory, help with dyslexia, ADHD)
- help with learning and nervous system disabilities (many parents have found NeurOptimal® has been helpful with autism, cerebal palsy etc)
- enhanced performance (used by sports people, musicians, writers, business executives)
- transformative development – used by people for personal development, improved meditation or profound transformation.
- preventative – keeps the mind running optimally and help to prevent cognitive decline.
- Many other areas – e.g. it has been found to be immensely helpful with Chemobrain
- Can be used in a professional clinical setting or also available as a home use personal neurofeedback system.
- Very easy and quick to learn.
Drs Val and Sue Brown worked in the field of clinical psychology whilst using conventional neurofeedback with impressive results. They gradually concluded that the brain was capable of regulating itself if given the right information, and it could do so holistically and simultaneously (in the old model of neurofeedback individual parts of the brain are entrained by operators who compare the brain to a norm and make judgments about what the brain should or not be doing. ) Once computing power had increased in the 90’s they were able to develop a technology via advanced mathematical algorithms that reflected the brain’s non-linear dynamical operating system. This incorporated the experience and understanding gained during more than 20,000 conventional neurofeedback systems. At first their new neurofeedback equipment was semi-automatic and eventually became fully automatic. NeurOptimal® is unique in its field and is considered to be the most advanced form of neurofeedback in existence.
