How Does Neurofeedback Work?
You can turn on any DVD, CD, or an
animation file with your Concentration or Alertness. When you "lose it",
going below the threshold, the show stops. This boosts your interest and
The new challenge to "Beat Your Mean" enhances your
Here's a screenshot of a typical Peak Achievement
Trainer® VR/XR session showing its features:
Use NeuroVideoFeedback™ to Discover the Optimal Patterns of Focus and
The new key feature is the video window. In that window:
Each activity has its own optimal pattern of Focus and Alertness. With
this new video software, it will be far easier to discover optimal
patterns that accompany peak performance and to reinforce them. The new
software includes the FocusedAlert protocol, an improved ConAlert
protocol, which was previously sold separately for $395.
- You can play back a video file of a user performing a mission
critical activity, While its playing, ask the user to visualize himself
doing the activity, while you record his Focus (yellow) and Alertness
- You can also record video (with a webcam) and simultaneously record
both concentration and alertness, as the user performs or visualizes the
activity. He can close his eyes and listen to a flute in his left ear
for concentration, and/or strings in his right ear for alertness. The
higher the pitch, the more intense the concentration or alertness.
- Later, play back a selected session--with video--for discovery and
comment. Pause it to discuss what you see. Then compare and contrast
sessions from excellent and mediocre performances to find the key
differences. Use these differences as a basis for training.
example, this screenshot is a recording of a golfer’s pre-shot routine and
his putt, shown at the top, lasting 28 seconds. If you were able to see
the video, it would be clear that he started out kneeling down. From the
left, you see him focusing briefly several times as he lined up his shot.
His Focus (yellow) and Alertness (orange) rose even higher just before he
took each practice swing, corresponding to the moment when he set his
intent, creating the visual/kinesthetic image of his planned shot. The
last broad peak of Focus and Alertness occurred just before he began his
shot. Next, the record is interrupted by the last of several
blinks—vertical green lines, followed by an artifactual decrease in Focus
and Alertness. (Our new software can correct for these false readings,
showing both the corrected solid areas and the uncorrected lines.) Then
we see the brief moment of intense Focus on the ball’s sweet spot (quiet
eye?) just before he hits the ball. Notice that he did not use as much
mental energy—his Alertness was lower--when he struck the ball as he did
when he was remembering his plan and looking at the hole. Information
like this is very helpful in understanding and improving the client’s
Use DVDs and CDs for Motivation
You can control the playback of
DVDs or CDs, so that they respond to the user's Focus or Alertness by
moving forward or getting louder. Use this later in a session to maintain
their interest. Children will train for hours given this type of
Beat Your Mean: A New Way to Enhance Focus and Alertness
is also a new, highly motivating approach to improving a user's
performance while adjusting automatically for his initial level, which is
far better than automatic threshold adjustment. It's called "Beat Your
Mean". The Trainer encourages the user to increase his last 10 second
average to better than their session average, or their last 60 second
average. With this approach, the Concentration (yellow) and Alertness
(orange) both increase markedly and remain steadier. This lowers their
Standard Deviation, another indicator of attention control. .
Learning The Microbreak: An Instant Relaxation Technique
course, a user can't maintain this forever, but the effort enhances
learning, and he will soon discover that the brain needs a microbreak
every so often. Training to develop and control the microbreak has been
one of the major principles of Peak Achievement Training® since its
inception. Dr. Barry Sterman showed that Air Force pilots, who are truly
peak performers, take these short breaks between tasks. The Trainer
includes audiotaped lessons on developing and practicing the microbreak.
It's Easy to Adjust
Almost every setting is adjustable on the fly,
so that you can make changes as you see fit. You can adjust the volumes
of each sound, or mute them, to make the Neurovideofeedback™ ™ as simple
or complex as necessary. You can change the size of the windows.
Zoom In and Print Out Your Results
The new software includes a
session review package which produces printed results.. It can zoom in on
particular parts you wish to highlight and print them out in detail.
Supports a Wide Variety of Neurovideofeedback™ Approaches
includes a Windows program for real-time biophysical data acquisition,
processing, and display. This object-oriented approach can be configured
by the user to carry out a wide variety of more traditional protocols.
You may not use the VR/XR Protocols for measuring or recording the
responses of individuals to advertising, web pages, video, film,
television, lectures, or any other media presentations of any type for
purposes of studying or improving the effectiveness of such presentations.
