The Science of NeurOptimal®

In the same way that your heart can develop the ability to pump blood more efficiently with exercise, your brain is designed to find ways to optimally function.

Dynamical Neurofeedback is the core scientific technology developed by Zengar Institute that is used in its NeurOptimal®neurofeedback training systems. Unlike other neurofeedback training systems, Dynamical Neurofeedback® allows the brain to be the pilot and guide itself back to optimum performance. With NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training, your brain will gradually find ways to be resilient and self-regulate.

NeurOptimal®‘s Dynamical Neurofeedback technology is centered on Dr. Val Brown’s (the co-creator) understanding of the non-local “holographic” manner in which the brain functions as a rich interconnected neural net.

Dynamical Neurofeedback is based on the four following observations regarding physiology:

Brain Dynamics: The brain is a non-linear, dynamical system that perceives information and adjusts to incoming stimuli in a dynamic dance of ongoing balance. The brain naturally self-regulates based on incoming information. NeurOptimal® provides the brain with the information it needs to do its job solo, rather than telling it what it needs to do (linear neurofeedback). No child needs to be told the best way to walk and talk.

Functional Targeting: Functional targeting is how NeurOptimal® provides the brain with the valuable information about itself. There is a wide range of variability within different “Time-Frequency Envelopes” that determines the right balance for each client. NeurOptimal® interacts with the brain in order carry out its own re-adjustment. Linear neurofeedback is likely to be less effective and to trigger undesirable side effects. This is because the brain’s “ideal” ongoing processes cannot be appropriately determined through diagnosis or evaluation.

Process Variability: The majority of neurofeedback systems try to train the brain to go in a certain direction. However, the brain has process variability which means that it does not demonstrate absolute values for the level of brain activity required for specific functions. This is different for each person and is dependent on a number of variables. Therefore, attempting to train the brain to levels decided by a professional based on a diagnosis, evaluation, test or symptoms experienced by the person during the week is unhelpful to the brain’s natural learning process.

Results: NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback does not attempt to restore brain function to a predetermined “average” or “best” level based on other individuals. NeurOptimal® gives your central nervous system accurate information about itself, allowing the brain to function at its best.
