COGS, NeuroFraming and the OSCLR Effect

COGS® Neuroframing uses non-threatening motion in the peripheral vision. This particular type of motion has a calming effect allowing the wearer to focus more intently and remain alert longer.  This type of visual display has been named OSCLR.

The OSCLR Effect was first discovered in 2015 by Dr. Andy Bevilacqua during his doctoral research. OSCLR stands for Optically Stimulated Cognitive Load Regulation and has been demonstrated to help improve learning, increase retention and promote concentration by blocking distractions and clear brain fog.

The Optically Stimulated Cognitive Load Regulation of COGS® is a chemical-free alternative that stimulates a natural process in the brain enabling the wearer to learn more faster and stay alert longer.  In addition to our glasses we have developed a software application that delivers the OSCLR Effect on your tablet or computer display called NeuroFraming™.

Our NeuroFraming™ products and configurations achieve cognitive load regulation through optical stimulation in the peripheral vision.  We designed our various software NeuroFraming™ products to activate this OSCLR Effect so that our customers and community can achieve advancements in concentration, throughput, and productivity while actively engaged in their primary tasks.

Additional Information:

A discussion of semantics may be useful here, as the concept of Neuroplasticity has been getting some attention. Neuroplasticity and Neuroframing™ are both physiological processes. Neuroplasticity involves functional adaptation to stimulus by a reorganization of, for example, brain structure, functions, or connections. Meanwhile, our NeuroFraming™ products do not involve reorganization of brain structure. Thus, these two expressions look similar, but differ in many important ways.   Other forms of cognitive regulation are administered at separate times and/or require extensive training/meditation sessions.  The OSCLR Effect requires no down-time, is immediately effective, and can be administered while the user is engaged in their work.
