FEATURES OF NEUROPTIMAL®
FEATURES OF NEUROPTIMAL®
NeurOptimal® Dynamic Neurofeedback is believed to be the most advanced brain-training system available in the world today.
Why are we comfortable in making such a bold claim? It’s because of the many ground-breaking features it possesses, which are unique to NeurOptimal®. Describing these features and why they are important can be a daunting task– there are a lot of them and it can get very technical. But here we present an overview of some of the most major.
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. In fact, it is completely irrelevant! This is one of the reasons we are so clear that NeurOptimal® is a training and not a treatment. The role of trainer becomes one of sharing a journey with a client while the information, and the client’s experience, evolve. And because it is not a treatment it is safe enough to be used at home, opening up new possibilities for professionals and home-users alike. NeurOptimal® elegantly and simply offers the brain the information it needs to organize and re-organize itself. As it does, client complaints drop away and new competencies emerge, resulting in greater flexibility and resilience. Which translates into — a better quality of life! Easily. Simply. Naturally.
Incredible Ease of Use
Although non-linear dynamical theory and its application can be complex and involved, NeurOptimal® is incredibly simple to use. All you do is place the sensors and start your session. NeurOptimal® provides the information the brain needs moment by moment, automatically adjusting the level of difficulty and challenge through its exclusive auto-navigation (“auto-nav”) feature. There is no guesswork for the trainer or user, and no need to worry about making mistakes. The expertise is built in. You can be quickly up and running rather than spending time learning how to use the system. And individual sessions require no up-front assessment or planning.
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. While it is true you can sometimes get dramatic effects by pushing the brain in a particular direction as do linear neurofeedback systems, it is also very possible to push the brain into a de-stabilized state. And destabilization means unpleasant side effects.
Related to the idea of pushing the brain into particular states, is the idea of training states of consciousness (such as beta for focused, alpha for relaxed and so on). NeurOptimal® has long since moved on from state training, allowing the brain access to multiple states of consciousness in rapid succession. This gives the brain an unprecedented ability to shift fluidly and effortlessly through states of awareness that are appropriate for what is happening in your life, without any effort from you. You are not “parked” in any one state (which is what is happening if you can’t focus, or can’t fall asleep for example), but are able to shift flexibly and easily– without triggering functional instabilities. This results in powerful transformations achieved naturally, gently and easily.
Effortless Client Engagement
Linear systems require conscious effort on the part of the person having a session, to achieve goals set by the operator. 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.
You can also decide on the audio-visual components of a session. Music? Movie? Many users run NeurOptimal® in its default mode, which shows beautiful never-repeating fractal images and plays music especially composed music by Grammy award-winning musician Jeff Bova. But some like to create a multi-media experience to provide a unique experience. It’s up to you.
In-line Adaptive De-noising
Real-time Joint Time-Frequency Analysis and Superior Precision
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. And still we won’t stop there. To take you assuredly into the future, Zengar consistently invests a considerable portion of its resources in Research and Development as part of its commitment to enduring excellence.
True Dynamical Thresholding
Dynamical thresholding (which is where we get the name “Dynamical Neurofeedback” to describe how we work), is the way information is actually provided to the brain. But far more than that, it also actively interacts with the brain encouraging a powerful release of a brain’s “points of stuckness”, assuring superior possibilities for change. This is not the usual thresholding of other systems!
There are two other important implications arising from our use of Dynamical Thresholding. The first is that NeurOptimal® adaptively works with “where you are”, moment by moment. This is why you do not need a diagnosis or assessment of symptoms ahead of time. In fact, a diagnosis that is minutes, hours, days or months ahead is very crude by NeurOptimal® standards. The second important implication is that when your brain gets fatigued (even though you won’t be aware of this), NeurOptimal® responsively and adaptively works with your brain at its new (“tired”) levels. This means over-training is not an issue (although for the very keen we do recommend not training more than twice in a day!).
In a nutshell, NeurOptimal®’s special Dynamical Thresholding and Targeting procedures powerfully and actively support the brain’s own re-organization, allowing unprecedented yet safe, client transformation.
Adjust Filter (Target) Bandwidths on the Fly
Should you choose to do so, you can adjust filter bandwidths (which determine the frequencies you work with) and many other filtering characteristics on the fly, with no disturbance to ongoing feedback.
Information-Rich Matrix for the Brain
NeurOptimal® works with sixteen different targets (filter sets) throughout the range 0.001- 42 Hertz, changeable to work up to 64 Hertz. This means broad-based client transformation across the board— no chipping away at client challenges with a limited toolbox, as with older style systems. And NeurOptimal®’s next evolution will see it offering twenty targets working up to 64 hertz by default. The high-precision technology under the hood gives you flexible options while taking you assuredly into the future.
No Diagnosis or Pre-Evaluation
NeurOptimal® works moment by moment with where the client is regardless of any diagnostic classification. The client can have more training for the same money without having to resort to expensive diagnostics that don’t directly contribute to the client’s wellbeing or satisfaction. We dance with the brain in a non-linear journey of seamless transformation in which the client’s whole life re-awakens.
