Shhh… Want to Take a Peek Inside the NeurOptimal® System?

Zengar has been developing a Neurofeedback system for years that they have referred to as a non-linear dynamical approach to brain training. But what in the world does that mean? It is sometimes difficult to call this system ‘neurofeedback’, because this educational brain training program has very little in common with the linear approach that so many people understand as neurofeedback. It helps to understand a little more about the brain. The brain is ever-changing. Neuroplasticity...

Brain Training Among Best Natural Remedies for Migraines Says Psychologist

Migraines are more than just a headache -- they are a global health issue. 30 million people are directly affected and migraines cost employers $13 billion every year in lost worker productivity. That's more than diabetes and asthma combined. For many sufferers, attacks are completely debilitating and can last as long as 72 hours. Unfortunately, the Migraine Research Foundation estimates that the majority of migrainers never seek medical treatment. That may be because the medications involved can cause side-effects worse then...

What Is Neurofeedback Training “Like”? Think of It as Netflix for Your Brain

What is neurofeedback? Go ahead, log into Netflix. See there the rows of recommendations? That’s not magic: that’s an algorithm. Netflix “remembers” what you watched, how you rated past films, then correlates that data against your viewing habits.  A blink-of-an-eye search of the media database then produces “recommendations” based on your preferences. So the algorithm saves precious hours of your life and spares your eyeballs having to scroll through the 100,000 available titles. Thanks, Netflix! ...

Accidents Will Happen: Neurofeedback and TBI

If you think about it, it’s clearly a serious design flaw. When is it a good idea to put something the consistency of flan in a hard shell, and then attach it to a fistful of bungie-cords. And what happens when this precarious design hits a wall? That’s the mess you’re in for when a person experiences a traumatic brain injury or TBI. The flan (brain) whips around on the end of the bungie-cord (neck) torqueing the...

Defending Your Castle: Building Cognitive Reserve with Neurofeedback

So, three castles: the first is built of stone on the traditional model. Same slits for arrows, a little crenellation and a nice moat with ducks. A contingent of serfs and knights, sitting around eating turkey legs and repeating the jester’s jokes. Badly. Second castle’s really big, heavy with redundancies. Two moats, a couple of extra walls. Still on the traditional model, just more of everything.  Third castle? Same. Except it’s clearly cleverer. Someone’s an...
