The future of military might may not just be in bigger and better hardware of warfare, but in fitter and faster brains of military personnel.
The Brain Training Company is at the cutting edge of mental fitness training. What was seen ten years ago as kooky executive training or fringe athletic training to achieve the mental edge, may now become a mainstream component of military training.
It is demonstrably possible to improve someone’s mental fitness; be that to increase IQ, manage stress better, enhance levels of focus and concentration when under pressure, or learning information at a greatly increased speed. The foundation of this at The Brain Training Company is brainwave training. Developing the ability to consciously control brainwave activity. From this there are knock on benefits, such as greater neural connectivity and increased blood flow to the brain.
For military personnel this is a critical step in improving personal performance – faster and better decision making when under pressure.
