What is NeurOptimal® and how does it work?

It is a safe and effective computer-based program that mathematically mirrors, through auditory and visual feedback, what the brain is doing moment by moment so that it may renormalize itself.

It does this by detecting and monitoring changes in cortical patterns and mirroring the brain activity which may be undermining optimal functioning.

Just as standing in front of mirror encourages you to adjust your posture or your hair, receiving the feedback of the NeurOptimal® system causes the brain to self-correct and make its own adjustments. This happens over and over until the optimal state becomes your new way of functioning.

What Happens in a Brain Training Session?

During a NeurOptimal® brain training session, you wear two tiny sensors on your head and ear clips on your ears that record your brain waves. You sit in a comfortable chair and listen to music while watching a ever-changing visual display, although you can close your eyes and relax if you like. Children sometimes play a quiet game or read a book. After a 33.5 min. session you feel refreshed, relaxed and in a higher state of mental alertness and flow.

For Students

Neurofeedback is a phenomenal learning tool. It helps with focus, engagement and significantly increases one’s attention span. Students of all ages can learn more quickly and effectively. They retain more of what they read and study. Teachers and parents often notice positive changes in performance and behavior after just a few sessions. The American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback (aka EEG biofeedback) as “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD; rating it as equal to medication.


Because  NeurOptimal® is “dynamical”, meaning it provides individualized training, it is effective.

Because people have trained for over 3 million hours world-wide, the system is time-tested.

Because it is non-invasive, it is safe.

“The winter of 2011 neurofeedback changed the life of a family member from one of complete paralysis to one of thriving. Since the following January when I acquired my own professional system and began training I have witnessed countless changes; primarily in people who had anxiety, depression and insomnia. It is such a joy to see these changes in so many – especially in the children and young adults who have their whole lives ahead of them.”
Carol Williams

“My thirteen year old daughter was experiencing a high level of anxiety every day. It impacted her socially, academically, emotionally and physically. She was not able to focus on her school work. She didn’t sleep well and she was not able to cope well with normal life stressors. Her daily anxiety is now to a point that she is sleeping and eating better. She no longer dreads going to school or engaging in activities outside of the home.”  LC

“For a long time I was ranked at 200 for the videogame I’ve been playing. That changed after a few neurofeedback sessions; I am now ranked at 80th. I also found I can look for better options and strategies when I am rock climbing.” NS, 19 yr.

“The training I have done with Carol has made me stronger, more positive, more understanding for sure, and much less angry and confused….”

“When I started doing neurofeedback I was not sleeping at night. I would be up almost every hour all night long. I used to look at the clock and think to myself, “Oh no, I still have hours until morning!” Now I am sleeping through the night with very few disturbances. It is wonderful! I find that my mind is very clear. I can do math calculations without a pencil and paper.”

“I feel as though I have come out of a long, dark tunnel and am now at the end of it looking out on a beautiful sunny day.  It’s such a relief to be able to look forward to the future with hope and even joy.” LP
