NeurOptimal® vs Linear NeurofeedbackAlex Theoret2019-01-09T10:06:00-04:00 NeurOptimal®Linear NeurofeedbackWhy is this important? No expertise required. Expertise needed throughout process. Expertise, if you can find it, can be expensive. No diagnosis. Diagnosis required. You shouldn’t need something to be wrong with you to train your brain. No check of signal integrity needed because NO recognizes and automatically removes unwanted signal. Careful hookup needed to minimize impedance, often involving scrubbing site. May use impedance meter to confirm signal integrity. You do not need to be an expert to get expert training. Training, not treatment; no protocols. Use of treatment protocols. Your diagnoses may require contradictory protocols; your practitioner must get choice right. No monitoring needed. AutoNavigation takes care of everything. Careful monitoring of session while it is occurring; parameters may need to be changed. Effortless sessions. Does not tell the brain what to do. Use of augment frequencies and suppress frequencies, instructing the brain what to do. If practitioner makes wrong decision, effects can be very unpleasant. Offers feedback on 20 different “targets” at once. Work with limited frequency bands. 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. No states are trained. Training is state based. Excess training in any state can lead to unwanted side effects. Want to learn more about the differences between NeurOptimal® and Linear Neurofeedback?
