The best brain wins
What does it take to perform at the top??
There are big differences in the brain power between peak and elite performers and those suffering from attention, focus, memory, mood, learning, and low creativity problems. The high performer’s brain has both specific and diverse resources available at its beck and call, it manages its energy efficiently, there is flexibility in shift gears to move from task to task, and communication networks are well-organized and connecting and disconnecting efficiently. Those with attention, mood, and memory problems, on the other hand, have a brain that is over or under firing certain nerve cells, energy that spins out of control or is locked into a redundant loop or pattern, or communication networks are too densely connected or inadequately coupled. The good news – make that great news – is brain performance problems can be discovered and the brain coached to function at much more efficient levels. And, it can happen very quickly.
A personal trainer starts by evaluating your current physical status: Your strength, cardiovascular condition, dexterity, stamina, etc., then comes up with a plan that lays out what can be accomplished with the right commitment and equipment. A Neurotherapist does much the same. The evaluation begins with a series of questionnaires to evaluate mental fitness, then moves on to an Auditory and Visual Continuous Performance Test (CPT) to evaluate you and your brain’s ability to respond and attend to environmental demands, and a Quantitative EEG (computerized Brain Wave Analysis) to reveal your brain strengths and weaknesses. Problems found are then remediated with NeuroMatrix Neural Efficiency Training™, a process that provides the resources your brain needs to correct its short comings.
Frequencies – Cycling to the top
Your brain does much of its work by managing a highly complex and variable mixture of frequencies (being produced by nerve cell firings). If the brain over or under produces a frequency inappropriate to the task at hand, performance or mood will suffer. If, for example, slow, lazy Delta waves over power fast, working frequencies, performance (focus, attention, and learning) problems will result.
