As founder and executive director for the Center for Cognitive Enhancement, I have been training the brain for optimal performance, improving focus and concentration, as well as emotional and intellectual dexterity for nearly 15 years and continue to be on the cutting edge of brain science and brain training.
From about 2006-2010, I participated as part of a research team at Arizona State University. I was involved in research that allowed our team to analyze both seasoned combat officers and cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point. There, we examined brain patterns that involved complexity of thinking and issues related to extremous leadership. This is a condition that creates the brain patterns that allow a person to exhibit leadership and possess the ability to perform under the extreme conditions that often occur on the battlefield.
This is the same brain function that allows a first responder to charge into a burning building and keep command of his faculties under extreme stress. Of course an athlete is not required to put their life on the line every time they compete, but the patterns of brain activity to perform at the highest level are still the same.
