The SyberVision video-based neuromuscular training technology was developed at the world-renown Stanford University Neuropsychology Research Laboratory. Dr. Karl Pribram, founder of the laboratory and Director of Advanced Research for SyberVision, pioneered the science behind SyberVision. He discovered that the language of the brain is images and discovered how the brain transforms images into behavior (i.e. golf swing). (See Pribram Psychology Today interview)

All movement is initiated by an image. The brain tranduces an image into a program that directs and guides the body's muscles and limbs though movement. Pribram learned how this process occurs and how to use this understanding to dramatically improve fine and gross motor skill-based athletic performance.

According to Pribram, the brain is a frequency analyzer. When an image comes in through the eyes, for example, the optic nerve transduces the image to a nerve impulse that travels in a waveform to the brain. The rate of travel is the waveform's frequency.

As the waveform hits the brain, the brain analyzes the waveform via a mathematical process called the Fourier Transform. It identifies the core (sine) frequency and initiates a search throughout the brain for memory of a similar frequency. When a match is made, the two waveforms (incoming and stored) resonate with each other. During resonance, the stored memory is unfolded and we experience recognition or recall.

Most people have experienced this "unfolding" of memory when a memory was triggered by a sound (song) or smell. In the case of smell, a chemical hit the olfactory bulb where it was converted to a waveform with a frequency unique to the chemical. The waveform traveled to the brain where it is analyzed. All memory that was stored at the same frequency as the incoming frequency was stimulated, unfolded and we re-experienced the original event with which the smell was associated.

It works the same way in golf. If you have ever hit a bio-mechanically sound golf swing (efficient movement rich in timing, rhythm, and tempo) that swing is stored as a frequency memory in your brain. If you watch a swing that has a similar frequency (timing, tempo, and rhythm), the image of that swing enters the eye where it is transformed by the optic nerve to a waveform that represents the unique frequency of the observed swing. The waveform travels to the brain where it is analyzed by the brain. The brain looks for a match (a stored memory of a similar frequency). If a match is made, the incoming and stored memory resonate and the stored memory unfolds.

During the unfolding of the stored golf swing memory, the same nerve impulses that are activated during the physical execution of the perfect swing, are stimulated—having a similar neurological effect as if you were physically performing the ideal swing.

SyberVision uses the Fourier mathematical model (both sine and cosine) as a guide to present golf images in such a way that the swing memory is stimulated nearly 1,000 times per 60-minute viewing session. During this unfolding process, many people report they can feel the body subtly go through the motion as if their senses are being bathed in golf perfection.

This repetitive stimulation builds a neuromuscular memory reserve, similar to perfect physical practice, that the golfer can immediately tap into during practice or play. The end result is an immediate and dramatic improvement that can be reinforced and sustained through a scheduled program of watching the DVD and playing golf.
