- 20,000 hours of classical neurofeedback and noticing which ones produced excellent results.
- Non-linear dynamical systems theory
- The brain is a self-regulating system.
- Advanced mathematics
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.
We never know how many sessions someone will need to have the experience they are looking for. Many people come for up to 20 sessions. But, equally, we have clients who are interested in long-term transformation and they often continue to attend sessions year after year.
