The Reds are hoping to lift a seventh European Cup, and a third trophy of the season, this weekend as they take on Real Madrid in Paris.
Back in February, Liverpool overcame Chelsea 11-10 in a Wembley shootout, with goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher the 11th player to find the back of the net, while earlier this month, it was 6-5 against the Blues in the FA Cup final.
Both times, Klopp credited neuro11 for their brain training exercises with the squad as being crucial to spot-kick success.
“We said ‘really? That sounds interesting, come over’. And so this trophy is for them, just like the Carabao Cup was.”
And as Liverpool took in an open training session at Kirkby on Wednesday afternoon, three days before the Champions League final, neuro11 duo Dr Niklas Hausler and Patrick Hantschke were back working with the squad.
Klopp embraced Hausler while the players warmed up in front of the cameras, with the neuro11 founder having recently welcomed a new baby to his family.

In the days leading up to the Champions League final, neuro11 are expected to work with the Liverpool squad in both individual and team sessions, in anticipation of a penalty shootout in Paris.
Their work is not solely limited to penalties, but also corners and free-kicks, both direct and indirect.
The two full-backs worked on free-kicks in and around the box, both centrally and from wide, crossing into the box.
There was no penalty practice during the open media day, but that will surely take place behind closed doors later in the week.
Origi is not set to be involved after picking up a muscle injury last week, but the club’s medical staff are giving Thiago every chance to prove his fitness following an Achilles problem suffered in the 3-1 win over Wolves.
