Neurocore: The Brain Train

Dr. Royer stresses the emphasis on sleep. The most important part of recovery. Training your brain to get in the zone is an important part of all athlete’s training regiment. Come game time, when the heat is on, your brain’s optimal zone is in the higher frequencies. And after all is said and done, all your energy spent, the optimal zone is in the lower frequencies wherein relaxing, resting and recovering are all at their peaks. If your mind is racing through the events of the day, you sleep will be disrupted, thereby negatively affecting your recovery time.

Founded in 2004 by neuropsychologist Dr. Timothy Royer, and based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Neurocore, also known as Neurocore Brain Treatment Centers, is one of the leading applied neuroscience companies in the United States today. They have six locations in Michigan: Grand Rapids, Grandville, Holland, Livonia, Sterling Heights, and West Bloomfield. As well as three locations in Florida: Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, and West Palm Beach. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.

Your brain is your entire body’s command center. So, if you can optimize your brain functions all of you other body’s necessary functions, such as the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, so on and so forth, will function at optimum levels. This will leads to better overall health and a reduction in stress.


This highly effective process involves cutting edge biofeedback processes. In a placed dubbed, “The Brain Room”, athletes sit down while wearing headphones and watching a movie of their choice on a video screen. The playback of the movie is controlled completely by the athlete’s brain waves through the use of small electrodes. The point is complete and total immersion in the movie to induce a state of complete relaxation. If the athlete’s attention deviates from the movie, even in the slightest, the movie will stop. This reinforced a reward system so that the brain begins to relax longer and longer so that the movie will continue to play longer and longer.

This boost mental strength and endurance and allows for a state of ultra-relaxation so that the athlete’s sleep is optimized. Thereby optimizing recovery time and quality. The mind is the best weapon. Keep it sharp!!! Read more about Neurocore at
