Are you interested in optimizing how your brain functions while increasing it’s resiliency and flexibility? NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback can train your brain for emotional resilience, mental focus and confidence.

You’re probably asking yourself and wanting to know answers to a few common questions. Let’s explore some of the most frequently asked questions together.

What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?

The simplest answer is that NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is an advanced brain training technology. It is designed to train the brain in order for it to function at its peak performance level. It is a dynamical neurofeedback personalized brain fitness tool and a training system that can lead to personal transformation.

Something to consider… it is wonderful that many place importance on keeping our bodies fit, in shape, healthy and optimized, however, what about our brain? Think of it as exercise/fitness for your brain.

What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback For?

Those who have experienced early trauma and neglect, or an overwhelming physical or emotional trauma that results in your nervous system frequently being on high alert and remaining in fight, flight, or freeze states;

  • Anxiety
  • ADHD for children and adults
  • Improved emotional regulation
  • Academic and Job enhancement
  • Athletic and sports training
  • Optimizing your intelligence with improved brain function
  • Test preparation – Improved focus, retention, reduction in test anxiety
  • Can reduce cognitive decline
  • Enhancing creativity and awareness

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Neuroptimal® Neurofeedback is a completely painless, gentle, and non-invasive process. Neurofeedback training/sessions with the Nueroptimal® system is safe for anyone to use.

Neurofeedback is approved in both Canada and the US. In the US, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated NeurOptimal® as a “General Wellness” device. Health Canada in reviewing NeurOptimal®, has classified it as being a “Consumer Product”.

No diagnoses or directed intervention is required or necessary when using the system. It is safe due to the fact that nothing is being added to your brain. It is rare and highly unlikely that you will experience any ill effects after a session. In well over 4 million sessions worldwide since 1999, Neuroptimal® has proven to be safe, reliable and effective.

A NeurOptimal® session only takes 33 minutes and the training is effortless. Two sensors are placed on your scalp and three sensors on the ears. The EEG sensors read electrical signals or brainwaves coming from your brain – nothing goes back into your brain through the sensors. The monitoring of this electrical activity reminds your brain about what it’s actually doing in order for it to function more optimally.

When your brain activity shows signs of turbulence, the music within the NeurOptimal® neurofeedback software is momentarily interrupted. This subtle cue alerts your brain that it is operating inefficiently. With repeated training sessions, the brain learns to “reset” itself and function more smoothly. All of this learning is non-invasive and happens outside of your conscious awareness.

NeurOptimal® is not a game, fad or gadget. It is a life-changing technology!

Solidly founded in the fields of neuroscience, non-linear dynamics, mathematics, Neurology, Psychology and electrical engineering. Designed to significantly enhance the human experience.

Designed by a duo of Clinical Psychologists to work with the brain as a Non-Linear Dynamical System, NeurOptimal® represents the cutting-edge of neuro-technology today. With the required expertise built into the system and its unsurpassed ease of use, over three million hours of experience have shown NeurOptimal® to be the effective, safe choice for those seeking the most out of their life.

NeurOptimal® is used by professionals and home-users all over the world: From Paris to Perth, Manhattan to Madrid, from Amsterdam to Montreal, NeurOptimal® is the global standard for human performance technology.

NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback is believed to be the most advanced brain-training system available in the world today.

Why is NeurOptimal® comfortable in making such a bold claim? It’s because of the many ground-breaking features it possesses, which are unique to NeurOptimal®. Here is an overview of some of the most important features.

NeurOptimal® is an Information-Based Technology:
From the ground up NeurOptimal® has been designed to provide information about the non-linear dynamical activity of the brain as it shifts from moment to moment. Because it tracks the brain so precisely and so rapidly micro-second by micro-second, there is no need for evaluation or diagnosis ahead of time.

The Elegance of Working With Instabilities:
NeurOptimal® works with functional brain instabilities, not amplitudes (amounts) or other linear measures used in linear systems. As the brain starts to move into a functional instability, which we target in “time-frequency envelopes”, the sound you hear pauses very briefly. The brain immediately pulls itself back from these functional instabilities. Over time, the brain learns to maneuver around such instabilities instead of falling into them, resulting in fewer issues and improved functioning — which we call increased flexibility and resilience.

Permissive Non-Directive Healing Stance:
NeurOptimal® is respectful of your brain’s own process and does not push it by telling it what to achieve in a session. The brain does its own reorganizing, inherently a natural and gentle process.

Effortless Client Engagement:
Linear systems require conscious effort on the part of the person having a session. With NeurOptimal®, there is absolutely no effort required at all! You can listen to music, watch a movie, relax and close your eyes, or even, for some kids that find it hard to sit still and do nothing, play a game, read or do homework. It doesn’t matter.

In-line Adaptive De-noising:
One of the benefits of working with instabilities is that muscle movement and other sources of unwanted signals are far less of an issue for NeurOptimal® than they are on linear systems. NeurOptimal® continuously eliminates this signal noise, making effective training MUCH easier and more reliable. This unique, in-line Adaptive De-noising algorithm makes worrying about signal quality a thing of the past.

Real-time Joint Time-Frequency Analysis and Superior Precision:
NeurOptimal® works with real-time Joint Time-Frequency Analysis or JTFA in a special non-linear way that accurately and precisely captures the “event-structure” of the electrical activity of our brain. This is a state-of-the-art approach to analysis that is unique to Zengar®, with no other brain training system offering this capability– even if they claim to be “non-linear”. Further contributing to NeurOptimal®‘s superior precision is an extremely high rate of sampling coupled with extraordinary precision of filtering, targeting and triggering of feedback.

While this may be challenging to understand, be assured every detail has been carefully thought of, designed, optimized, and then tested over hundreds of thousands of hours.

Yes. NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback brain training is 100% safe for kids. Regular brain training with a neurofeedback system like NeurOptimal® offers an alternative for parents who want to avoid prescription drugs and the labeling stigma of a specific diagnosis for their children. See video below for more.
Typically, clients train with NeurOptimal® at least once or twice per week with the optimal number of sessions suggested between 15-20 depending on circumstances and what it is being used for.
  • Used in over 70 countries around the world to enhance personal transformation
  • 2,300 sessions per day, it has a proven track record
  • 70,000 sessions per month, training the brain to be more flexible and resilient
  • Over 4 million sessions world wide since 1999 have proven NeurOptimal® to be reliable, safe and effective.

The investment in NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback training is as follows:

  • 1 session = $80
  • 10 sessions = $750
  • 20 sessions = $1,500
