NEUROTRAINER FOR PROFESSIONAL TEAMS

Cognitive Neuroscience for Player Development and Scouting in the NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS & NFL

We help elite athletes achieve breakthrough levels of performance through virtual reality-based cognitive training & assessment.

NEUROSCIENCE INSIGHTS 

FOR SCOUTING

We have created an innovative "layered cognition assessment" that is the first product to provide lab-quality measurement in a simulated environment for more valid assessments. We use immersive hand-tracking to allow real-life athletic action during assessment. Using highly tuned instrumentation, we offer insights into cognitive abilities like no other system available. 

Research now shows that a new type of cognitive training provides real-life benefits that translate to in-game performance. NeuroTrainer uses a mobile virtual reality headset that provides fun yet challenging competitions for athletes.

THE SCIENCE

OCCIPITAL LOBE

PRE-FRONTAL CORTEX


PARIETAL LOBE



People typically under-utilize about ½ of this part of their brain. MRI studies show that our exercises pinpoint and activate bloodflow to the entire occipital region. The result is athletes control their entire visual field. 

Fast and accurate decisions while ignoring distraction involves the most complex pathways in the brain. NeuroTrainer uses breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence to agitate and push athletes to the limit of decision-making under pressure.  Athletes gain a feeling of calm control that brings out the best version of themselves.


Attention controls the processing of visual information. NeuroTrainer teaches athletes how to deploy their visual-attention resources and tune the temporal and spatial resolution of attentional processing for their sport-specific skills. 

Activated by motion-based tasks and peripheral vision tasks

Activated by decision-making, impulse control and switching attention

Activated by tasks that require visual-spatial attention 

The Occipital Lobe Controls Vision

The Prefrontal Cortex controls decision-making

The Parietal Lobe controls the distribution of visual attention.

MRI Studies Guide Our Approach to Pinpoint and Activate the Cortex

Unlike traditional cognitive assessment tools, NeuroTrainer is not performed in a cubicle or on a computer screen. Wireless Virtual Reality gives the power to quickly and easily deploy in real time anywhere.


OUR TECHNOLOGY

MOBILE

Virtual Reality Easily Deployed Anywhere

We have developed a series of proprietary measurements that substantially cut down the time required for accurate cognitive testing. It allows teams to quickly target key areas of the vision-decision-action loop.

FAST & ACCURATE

Accurate Assessment in 15-Minutes

Rather than traditional  tests, our VR-simulation testing environment mimics the abilities used in real-life tasks and assesses the mental abilities that are relevant to athletes.

VALID

Lab-Quality in a Rapid and Dynamic Environment

NeuroTrainer targets and activates the 3 critical cognitive components used by athletes. 

Vision is primarily a neurological function. We train better eye movements and better information processing.

VISION

We help players lock in their attentional system when it matters most. Players report being able to "slow the game down" after training.

FOCUS

Knowing the difference between a good decision and a great decision is the hallmark of a great player. This includes the ability to control impulses.

DECISION MAKING

HOW IT WORKS

Our system incorporate the eyes, the brain and the body.


OUR HISTORY

2005

2005: VISUAL SPEED OF PROCESSING TRAINING

Based on a series of published studies, we developed a tool to investigate how to rewire the occipital and parietal lobes where vision and attention reside.

2013: STUDY SHOWS COGNITIVE TRAINING IMPROVES VISION HANDICAPS

A landmark study with 24 legally blind adolescents that rapidly restored visual function for the visually-impaired. These significant improvements persisted on re-test a year later.


We developed our first VR version of the NeuroTrainer technology in order to bring the technology out of the lab and push the visual system and cognition more effectively. 

2015: VIRTUAL REALITY APPLICATIONS

2019

In 2016, we began working with professional and college sports teams to further refine cognitive measurement and training, providing a clear signal of how cognitive measurements stratify among player abilities and map to real-world applications. 

2016: ATHLETIC COGNITIVE TRAINING

2018: INNOVATION IN MEASUREMENT

In 2018, we were funded by the National Science Foundation to explore our concept of "layered cognitive assessment" which resulted in the completion of the first lab-quality assessment that maintains real-life athletic validity.
