Brain Training: The Next Level in Sports

It wasn’t many years ago that the Portland Trail Blazers were plagued with a losing streak. Many began to realize that this was not just a streak of bad luck but rather a lack of focus. Visit to know more about Neurocore.

During a physical activity or rather game time in the sense of the Portland Trail Blazers, the minds of the couches and the players work at a higher frequency. However after the game the mind needs rest. The body must find a way to make sense of things that have happen and process it. This at rest time results in proper hormone levels and an overall sense of well being for the respiratory, cardiovascular and endocrine systems. The body not only needs sleep, but needs good quality proper amounts of sleep. These processes must be paired together to ensure proper brain function and over-all health for the body.


Inside the Neurocore brain room, athletes participate in relaxation and focus techniques. The athletes are places in comfortable chairs. Their brain waves are monitored and a movie is played. If the athletes mind begins to wonder, the movie is halted. The athlete wants to finish the movie, so of course focus goes back to the movie playing. This system is based on reward. We use rewards when training dogs and even working. See more information at Linkedin about Neurocore.

We have a job and once done we get paid for said job. This is the same technique used to create complete focus to ensure that the athletes reach their optimal brain level. By giving proper focus and time to “wind down” the athlete find a natural way to pair their strenuous activities with a calming period. After 30 minutes in the brain room 2,000 reinforcements inside the brain are completed

Neurocore was founded in 2004. Specializing in applied neuroscience, the Neurocore team has provided adults and children with a healthy way of promoting optimal brain activity. They provide accurate biofeedback, neurofeedback and other brain diagnostics.
