Neurofeedback training is a non-invasive and effective approach to enhancing cognitive abilities, attentional control, emotional regulation, and overall academic performance when monitored by a licensed doctor. Professionally created programs developed by licensed doctors can be an extremely valuable tool for supporting learning and cognitive functioning in students of all ages.

The importance of having a doctor create a custom training program based on individual goals & needs cannot be overstated. Everyone learns differently and at different speeds. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for attaining academic success. Making sure a licensed professional oversees training is imperative for success when it comes to neurofeedback training.

Today we want to take a look at some of the mechanisms neurofeedback training focuses on when it comes to improving academic performance.

Enhancing Attention & Focus

Neurofeedback training can target brainwave patterns associated with attention and concentration, such as increasing beta or sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) activity. By improving attentional control and focus, individuals may experience enhanced productivity, better information processing, and increased ability to sustain attention during academic tasks, leading to improved academic performance.

Improving Executive Function

Neurofeedback training can target brain regions and networks involved in executive function, such as the prefrontal cortex. By enhancing executive functions such as working memory, cognitive flexibility, and impulse control, individuals may experience improved planning, organization, problem-solving, and decision-making skills, which are essential for academic success.

Managing Anxiety & Stress

Neurofeedback training can promote relaxation and reduce physiological arousal levels, potentially helping individuals manage test anxiety, performance anxiety, and general stress related to academic demands. By learning to regulate emotional responses and maintain a calm and focused state, individuals may experience reduced interference from anxiety and improved performance on academic tasks.

Enhancing Cognitive Processing

Neurofeedback training may improve the efficiency of neural processing and information transmission within the brain, leading to faster cognitive processing speed and improved reaction times. This can be particularly beneficial for tasks requiring rapid information processing, such as reading comprehension, problem-solving, and decision-making in academic settings.


Enhancing cognitive focus with neurofeedback training can be done in many different ways. Some of the most common methods include:

  • Enhancing Focus & Attention through Training
  • Training to Improve Working Memory
  • Facilitation Cognitive Flexibility
  • Promoting Neural Plasticity
  • Individualized Brainwave Pattern Targeting

Increasing Motivation & Confidence

Neurofeedback training can help individuals develop a greater sense of self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-efficacy. By experiencing improvements in cognitive abilities, attentional control, and emotional regulation through neurofeedback, individuals may gain confidence in their academic skills and feel more motivated to engage in learning activities and pursue academic goals.

Individualized Training Programs

Neurofeedback training can be personalized to target specific cognitive or emotional challenges that may be impacting academic performance. Clinicians can tailor training protocols based on the individual’s unique strengths, weaknesses, and goals, providing a customized intervention that addresses their specific needs and promotes academic success.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Julia W

Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M

I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B

Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.


Overall, excellent experience. Very happy with Dr B and staff is wonderful. We feel like we have our family life back!


I am very thankful this technology was available for my training. I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of my training protocols.
