Neuroplasticity

Although once thought to be confined to the childhood years, recent advances in neuroscience indicate your brain is capable of neuroplastic change your entire life.  Neurofitness training encourages neuroplastic change by providing tailored exercises for the brain that “work-out” specific areas of the brain.  

The brain areas are chosen that correspond to functions that may be limiting your performance or ability to relax, rather like a personal trainer would chose areas to target for increased strength and flexibility in a physical work-out. For example, the prefrontal area of the brain would be a likely training site to strengthen and enhance the brain’s executive control functions, like the ability to pay selective attention, organize, control impulses, and multi-task.
