NeurOptimal® was developed on the basis of:
NeurOptimal® reads your brain’s electrical activity via only 2 sensors placed on the scalp (and 3 on the ears). This in turn is fed into an encoder which translates the signal and sends that information to the software in a laptop.
The client (or you) simply sit in a chair for 30 minutes and listen to music or watch a movie. Nothing else is required of you because your brain learns best unconsciously.
The software monitors your brain in real time 256 times a second, responding moment by moment with feedback to whatever is happening.
Whenever your brain creates turbulent electrical activity (sudden and large variations of electrical activity) the soundtrack is briefly interrupted. This is the feedback – the pause in the music – which in turn is information for the brain. So, nothing is put into the brain (no electricity) – an interruption happens and the brain learns to stop doing unproductive patterns and creates better functioning ones. The brain regulates itself!
Over time, the brain learns and creates stronger neural connections and neuropathways which become permanent. Long term change happens.
Typcially clients require 10 to 20 sessions. In some cases more or less be required, and special needs may require considerably more.
