Just like in circuit training for muscle training…. NeuroCoach® activities are assigned for the brain that are intended to strengthen various brain systems based on strengths and weaknesses in brain circuits. We know what the brain should be doing and we measure the performance response in the brain during the brain exercises, which we use to influence the intensity of the activity. For example, if the brain is performing like it is supposed to, we increase the intensity of the activity. However, if the brain becomes overwhelmed, we decrease the intensity of the activity to allow the brain to work within the “sweet spot”. It is working within that sweet spot that the neuro tracks are laid down and reinforced.
Instead of working out arms, legs and cardio we are working on memory, executive function, regulation, sensory processing, brain processing speed, etc. with our various activities and brain based exercises. The resiliency of the brain function will determine the speed and intensity of the presentation of the activity.
