NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Research

Zengar is the maker of NeurOptimal®, the state of the art brain training system used at New York Neurofeedback. Recently they sent out a press release about the research conference held in February of this year at Indian Wells, California. I was there and it was inspiring.

There were presentations on the use of NeurOptimal® with:
  • PTSD with veterans
  • Autism spectrum
  • Attachment disorders
  • Side effects of chemotherapy
  • Alzheimers
How can neurofeedback be effective with such a variety of conditions (and more)? It's because it works directly with the central nervous system - the brain and spinal cord, which is obviously at the center of pretty much all of the ways we function.

One note I'd like to add to the press release: It states that NeurOptimal® was shown to "stabiliz[e] cognitive degradation for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy." It's actually better than that. I'll be posting more about this next week. Meanwhile, you can link to an abstract of the study from this earlier post on the NYNF Blog, Chemo Brain Helped by Neurofeedback.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave them here on the blog or you can email me.
