Scientific studies show that NeuroTracker is beneficial for assessing and improving performance for athletes, personnel, healthy aging, people with cognitive related medical conditions, college students and children with learning difficulties. However, because NeuroTracker improves high-level mental abilities, it can be used by anyone looking to improve their mental performance.
NeuroTracker differentiates itself from other cognitive training programs on the market with its scientific evidence of rapid improvements across many high-level cognitive abilities and transfer to human performance.
Rapid improvement: Even with minimal training, users quickly see mental improvements. Just 18 minutes of training per week can robustly improve high-level cognitive abilities such as attention, executive function, working memory and processing speed. Most users experience positive results with just 1.5 to 3 hours of distributed training.
Transfer to human performance: In science, ‘far transfer’ is considered the gold-standard of research. Individuals using NeuroTracker experienced mental improvements not only in their training program, but also in non-related tasks e.g. passing accuracy in competitive play.
Attention is the concentration on and awareness of specific information going on inside our head, or environment, while ignoring distractions. In sports, for instance, it’s paramount to focus on a key play opportunity and ignore distractions coming at you.
Executive functions are skills that everyone uses to plan, organize, prioritize and act on information. It is important for controlling overly impulsive or emotional behaviour and is useful for flexible thinking, e.g. making tactful plays in sports or using learned information to solve a math problem.
Working memory is the part of short-term memory that helps you hold on to key information and manipulate it, e.g. thinking of several things at once in order to solve a problem. It plays an important role in concentration during complex situations.
Processing speed is the rate at which you take in information, make sense of it and begin to respond. Information can be visual, such as letters and numbers, and auditory, such as spoken language. In sports, your ability to interpret a visual scene quickly may determine whether you win or lose.
With NeuroTracker, each user is asked to complete a 3D visual exercise. In this exercise, users see 8 yellow balls moving around their screen. They are asked to track the highlighted balls. NeuroTracker’s visual exercise uses 3D multiple object tracking technology which has been scientifically shown to enhance cognitive functions.
We live in a 3D world. As a result, our technology is designed to simulate a real world environment to best benefit the brain. Science shows that 3D stimulation engages parts of the brain that are not activated with 2D stimulation.
It’s not recommended. We developed 3D glasses specifically for NeuroTracker. Our glasses were tested in a lab to optimize viewing quality and ensure durability for comfortable, long-lasting wear. They are also built to fit over regular prescription glasses.
Yes, NeuroTracker has no age restrictions. It important to note, however, that children become more proficient at training with increasing age. In addition, an individual has to understand the objective of the task; tracking and selecting targets. It could also be helpful to see a specialist who uses NeuroTracker to determine a specialist training plan.
NeuroTracker is currently only available in the United States and Canada, if you are training independently, without the help from a specialist. If you are being supervised by a specialist, there are no geographical restrictions.
Yes, there are plans to introduce NeuroTracker in Europe for those who want to train independently, i.e. without supervision from a specialist. At this time, however, we do not have a concrete release date. Contact [email protected] for more information.
NeuroTracker is a cognitive training tool that challenges you to track multiple targets moving dynamically in 3D space. It adapts movement speed and complexity in a way that optimally trains your high-level mental abilities.
To run NeuroTracker’s program in anaglyph 3D, a user needs NeuroTracker’s specialized 3D glasses, a screen that is at least 15 inches wide is recommended, and NeuroTracker requires the latest Chrome or Firefox browser on either Windows PC or Mac.
It allows users to train anytime, anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection and their 3D glasses. If you are working with a specialist, they can set up customized training programs for you and monitor your on-going training.
No. When you sign up for a program, it becomes customized to you and adapts to your personal mental abilities. It is intended to track your personal progress and ensure that your training session is optimized each time. Each person has a different performance level and mental threshold.
The post-training questionnaire is designed to measure the real world benefits of your training and overall progress since you started the program. Since you answered a pre-training questionnaire, you will be able to see how your mental capabilities have evolved.
