Matt Ryan likely attributes his success during the 2016-17 NFL season to many factors — hard work, good coaching, and excellent teammates — but the one attributing item that people might not be aware of is the Neurotracker. The TV-like device uses scientifically based models to improve cognitive performance, which is an especially important field for the quarterback of a Super Bowl team.

During Neurotracker training sessions, users don 3D glasses and visually track the movement of targeted objects as they move among distractors. In essence, it's a modernized, 3D version of the shell game. Each session takes just six minutes, and the system will gradually increase in difficulty as the player improves.

Matt Ryan isn't the only professional athlete using the Neurotracker. The training is also employed by players on Manchester United and the Vancouver Canucks.
