NeurOptimal® helps with focus and attention and increases one’s attention span. The result is students of all ages can learn more quickly and efficiently. They also retain more of what they read and study. As the student trains their brain, teachers and parents notice positive changes and a shift in the student’s attitude.

Brain Fitness/Reverse Aging
Each brain is unique with its own challenging patterns and programing. Everyone wants to maintain a healthy brain which can achieve our goals and maintain effective processing across our life span. However, after age 40 anatomical changes begin which can adversely affect our brains. Memory loss, a decrease of neuroplasticity, a loss of effective neuro – circuits and an overall thinning of the cortex are age related phenomena that may negatively affect how our brain is functioning.
Along with healthy lifestyle choices, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback can be a powerful tool to mediate cognitive decline that naturally occurs as we age. Just as physical exercise benefits the body NeurOptimal® can help improve memory, recall and increase overall cognitive dexterity in older individuals. It also helps when there has been trauma to the brain such as concussions, brain surgeries, strokes, and even helps decrease the negative effects of drug use or chemo brain.
