This study explores the effectiveness of Neuroptimal® neurofeedback on improving attention and focus. The study involved 18 participants, divided into a test group receiving neurofeedback and a control group without neurofeedback. Results showed a significant improvement in reaction times and accuracy for the neurofeedback group compared to the control group, suggesting that Neuroptimal® can be an effective tool for enhancing attention. The study also discusses real-life improvements observed in participants, such as better academic performance and familial relations.

Does NeurOptimal® Improve Focus and Attention?

This case study presents the impact of NeurOptimal Neurofeedback on a former Forensic Psychologist who suffered spinal and closed head injuries in 2002, leading to significant cognitive damage. The study reports on her experience with NeurOptimal Neurofeedback, including pre- and post-neuropsychometric tests and SPECT scan results. After initially undergoing 12 sessions in 2011 and then approximately 30 more sessions later, combined with other therapies, the results showed considerable improvement in various cognitive areas, including processing speed, memory functioning, and visuospatial skills. The follow-up neuropsychometric tests and SPECT scan in 2013 and 2014 further confirmed the significant cognitive improvements attributed to the NeurOptimal Neurofeedback sessions.

Recovery from Physical, Psychological and Cognitive Trauma using NeurOptimal Neurofeedback

This study explores the role of sleep in health and performance, and examines the effectiveness of NeurOptimal® in improving sleep quality. It discusses the physiological nature of sleep, the consequences of sleep debt, and the importance of both REM and NREM sleep. The study also covers the progression from transient to chronic insomnia and the cognitive-behavioral perspective on insomnia treatment. Additionally, it presents a retrospective analysis of NeurOptimal®’s impact on chronic insomnia, demonstrating significant improvements in sleep parameters among the study participants.

Optimal Sleep Using NeurOptimal®-Insomnia Studies

This study examines the effectiveness of NeurOptimal, a neurofeedback system, in managing stress and anxiety. Utilizing the BeFlow device for measurement, the study observes changes in brain function before and after NeurOptimal sessions. The findings suggest a significant reduction in the use of the ‘reptilian/survival brain’ and improvements in managing trauma or chronic stress. Participants showed reduced cognitive and chronic anxiety, increased optimism, and better mental focus and relaxation, indicating the profound impact of NeurOptimal on behavioral patterns and stress management.

Benefits of NeurOptimal on stress and anxiety management

The study “Effects of NeurOptimal Neurofeedback on Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety” by Dr. Linda Beckett and Dr. Janet McCulloch focuses on the impact of NeurOptimal neurofeedback on adults with varying degrees and durations of depression and anxiety. Using the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), the study measures symptom severity before and after eight NeurOptimal sessions. The results indicate significant improvements in symptoms, demonstrating the potential effectiveness of NeurOptimal neurofeedback as a treatment for depression and anxiety.
