What is Neurocognitive Processing?

Lets start out with a few definitions:

NEURO –  refers to the neurological, or nerve system, of the brain.

COGNITIVE –  includes mental processes, such as perception, knowledge and memory.

Neurocognitive processing focuses on the timing and rhythmicity of the brain, and their impact on the brain’s processing.  The most important PranaMind goal is to increase your brain’s neurocognitive processing through brain training. Why? Because quick, accurate processing of information into the brain through hearing, vision, and the other senses impacts “higher” executive functions—like memory and problem solving. 

The key to improving neurocognitive processing is making more robust connections in the brain, i.e., neuroplasticity which drives the signals to travel faster to one another. Neuroplasticity allows you to create new brain connections and increase the number of neural circuits, improving functionality. The stronger the neural pathways, the more efficient your neurocognitive processing. 

PranaMind believes increased efficiency produces more efficient brain connectivity, communication, and synchronization (integration) between the brain’s networks and hemispheres.

Why is Neurocognitive Processing Important?

Neurocognitive processing affects all brain functions, if it is inefficient it can contribute to a wide range of common conditions including the following:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Depression
  • Learning & Academic struggles
  • Executive function skills issues
  • Working memory difficulties
  • Functional Vision struggles
  • Neurosensori-motor Integration problems
  • Traumatic brain injury & Concussion problems

A greater understanding of neurocognitive processing is basic to developing neurocognitive processing programs to strengthen and improve the following neurocognitive processes:

  • Functional Vision
  • Neurosensori-Motor Integration
  • Academic Skills
    • Reading
    • Writing
  • Executive Functioning Skills
  • Working Memory
  • Neurocognitive Training games
