Think about playing a sport. One must keep track of who is doing what, where, when, and at the same time, plan and coordinate one’s thoughts and movement. Focus, attention, and precise timing are key to success in many areas of our lives.

When we are engaged in the classroom, at a business meeting, or when socializing, it takes a lot of work for some of us to focus. Our amazing brain creates networks for staying alert as well as for orienting our focus to what “grabs" our attention. Given all that is going on around us, we need a traffic controller to help us sort out what we need to attend to and for how long. Do we need to move on (shift our focus) or focus on more than one thing at once? Some of us have fast processors that can manipulate and retain key information in working memory. Some of us need a bit more time and assistance to stay in the game.

Whether you are in a busy classroom, office environment, or the field, you need to maintain your focus, get from point A to point B without getting distracted along the way, shift your attention to a new task, and filter out irrelevant input.

At Neurotech Solutions, we have the knowledge and technology to work on improving focus, attention, processing speed, and working memory for success in academic, professional, social, and athletic environments.
