NeurOptimal® or Linear Neurofeedback



  • No expertise required.
  • No diagnosis.
  • No check of signal integrity needed because NO recognizes and automatically removes unwanted signal.
  • Training, not treatment; no protocols.
  • No monitoring needed. AutoNavigation takes care of everything.
  • Does not tell the brain what to do.
  • Offers feedback on 20 different “targets” at once.
  • No states are trained.

Linear Neurofeedback

  • Expertise needed throughout process.
  • Diagnosis required.
  • Careful hookup needed to minimize impedance, often involving scrubbing site. May use impedance meter to confirm signal integrity.
  • Use of treatment protocols.
  • Careful monitoring of session while it is occurring; parameters may need to be changed.
  • Use of augment frequencies and suppress frequencies, instructing the brain what to do.
  • Work with limited frequency bands.
  • Training is state based.

Why is this important?

  • Expertise, if you can find it, can be expensive.
  • You shouldn’t need something to be wrong with you to train your brain.
  • You do not need to be an expert to get expert training.
  • Your diagnoses may require contradictory protocols; your practitioner must get choice right.
  • Effortless sessions.
  • If practitioner makes wrong decision, effects can be very unpleasant.
  • Limited frequency bands can produce side effects. Training with limited bands = limited training NO’s 20 targets naturally balance each other. Positive effects seen in many areas of life.
  • Excess training in any state can lead to unwanted side effects.
