Top Mind Peak Performance Centre
Rapidly emerging as one of Canada’s leading brain training facilities, Top Mind is a peak performance training facility designed to facilitate brain training.
Top Mind trains the brain to reach peak performance through a series of specialized programs, comparable to aerobic and anaerobic exercise used for optimal physical fitness. Top Mind brain training programs are designed to direct the ability of an individual or team to perform at their highest level
Top Mind uses the latest brain training technology.
NeuroTracker is a scientific innovation originally developed for measuring and improving cognitive performance in sports. Using a 3D display screen Top Mind guides clients through a series of exercises that build multiple object-tracking skills.
Top Mind challenges athletes, professionals and others seeking optimal brain performance to spread their attention by tracking many targets at high speeds. Top Mind has expanded the application of the NeuroTraker from athletes to individuals seeking to improve mental processing capabilities, maintain brain health and enhance mental performance.
Concussion Assessment and Symptom Management
Top Mind Peak Performance Centre applies a portfolio of advanced technology and techniques to asses and support individuals dealing with a concussion.
Sessions take under 20 minutes. The isolated cognitive stimulation involved and rapid brain development through the effects of neuroplasticity often lead to accelerated improvement rates in clients.
The benefits of brain training under the supervision of trained professionals are widespread and results are evident in the sporting environment, in the classroom and workplace. The human brain is composed of about 100 billion neurons. Early researchers believed that neurogenesis, or the creation of new neurons stopped shortly after adolescence. Nowadays, it is understood that the brain maintains the remarkable ability to reorganize pathways, create new connections and, in some cases, even create new neurons. Quite simply – the brain can be trained to achieve optimal functionality and peak performance.
Cognitive ability refers to the capacity of the brain to process information. Cognitive functioning includes perception, comprehension, reasoning, analytical processing, access to the brain’s database (memory), and learning. Athletes, professionals, students and mature adults can all benefit from cognitive training
Cognitive Training programs are designed to provide the brain with specific exercises to address personal needs (a mental workout tailored specifically for the client). The science behind those programs is based upon the proven fact that the brain can change as we learn – known as brain plasticity, or, neuroplasticity. By exercising your mind, one may increase their ability to:
- Register and process information quickly (auditory and visual)
- Learn new information more easily
- Sustain concentration in the presence of distractions
- Recall old information
- Multi-task – handle several tasks simultaneously.
The System uses a 3d Projector or 3D capable TV or P.C. to create an immersive 3D environment where you track a series of “bouncing balls” which move faster and faster as you progress.
NeuroTracker training improves athletic and mental performance by increasing player situational awareness and improving action response time during gameplay. The process of training the brain, adding motor skills, and graduating to a fully-immersive virtual environment is quickly becoming the future of high-level sport science.
