“For the longest time, the primary focus of training has been physical activities to prepare for football season. Using SyncThink is the first time we have something to train and monitor the mental side of the game.”

As tight end in the NFL, and a former Stanford University football star, Coby Fleener has spent most of his life preparing to compete at the highest level. Combining strength, speed, and athleticism, Coby understands that the pace of the game requires him to adequately prepare for each decision he makes on the field. In particular, he knows that monitoring of eye movements is critical to optimizing performance. To Coby, developing a routine for his brain is just as important as physical training like stretching, running, and lifting weights. SyncThink gives the objective measurements he wants to accurately benchmark his daily status, and provides insights into what daily adjustments will lead to sustained gains in performance.

The Continuum of Brain Performance

Historically, eye assessments have always utilized static fixation to measure vision quality. However, when the outside world begins to move, and our eyes have to move to orient ourselves to these movements, the brain takes over using a complex system of neural networks which initiate synchronization in order to respond to visual cues present in the outside world.
 
In the absence of impairment, these eye movements can be serially measured to provide insights around the status of the function of the brain in real time. By doing so, individuals can identify when the performance of the brain is optimized, or being negatively impacted by lifestyle choices which can delay recovery and increase risk.
