Neurocore Helps Athletes Get Their Heads in the Game

Brian Harris recently published an article titled “Neurocore Brain Training Centers Takes it to the Next Level” published on Release Fact, a website dedicated to providing current information on trending issues. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.

Neurocore is a company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan that provides detailed brain performance training as well as diagnostics. The diagnostics measure the brain’s activity through heart rate variability, electroencephalograms, and integrated visual and auditory continuous performance tests. However, the article mainly focuses on the benefits of brain training. The Neurocore enhancement sessions use 45-minute sessions to create a neurofeedback and biofeedback session. This focuses on the neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change. The program continues over 30 sessions which helps patients reduce stress, cortisol levels, and high blood pressure. It can also help improve patient’s cognitive performance and memory as well as mood. The neurofeedback training can also increase attention and focus while improving recovery for both the brain and the muscles.

Harris reveals this training is used by top performers and professional athletes. Professional athletes are beginning to include this brain training in with their workouts to improve their mental state as well as their muscles. He reveals that many athletes have a way of getting themselves “into the zone”. These rituals help relax the mind and body, creating signals that tell the brain to relax and allow muscle memory to take over, improving performance.


Dr. Tim Royer, the founder of Neurocore and a neuropsychologist reveals the importance of rest. Throughout high stress situations like sporting events or tests, the brain has higher frequencies. But just like any other muscle, the brain requires time to rest and recover. Rest allows the brain to use lower frequencies to recover.

One of the processes revealed in the brain training is the updated biofeedback. Athletes will simply watch videos while small electrodes monitor their brain waves. The movie allows the athlete’s brain to be both focused and relaxed. However, when they begin to trail off and think of other things, the electrical impulse creates a change and forces the DVD player to stop. The pauses encourage the brain to refocus and optimize the brain’s ability to focus. This allows the brain to recover faster and at an optimal rate. Read more about Neurocore at
