Your brain and NeurOptimal®

Your brain is a sophisticated control and command centre responsible for controlling ALL other systems in your body.

Physical, emotional or mental — your brain is responsible for it all. It receives and processes information from your body and the environment and enables you to process and store information and formulate appropriate responses, most of it without your conscious awareness.

It is estimated that the human brain has 15-33 billion neurons and each neuron may have as many as 100,000 synaptic connections - way more complex than the entire world wide web and yet it all exists inside within your head!

The neural networks in your brain are always changing. That's why we call the brain “plastic”. When you learn something, there is a physical and chemical change to the shape and output of a neuron.

Your brain responds to ‘information’ on a conscious and nonconscious manner, without assistance. We have the ability for complex processing and this is determined by how efficiently it functions. Most tasks like breathing, eating and digestion are ultimately performed without our focused attention. Once we have learned a task such as reading, writing, riding a bike and even driving we rarely think about how we do it again.
