Neurofeedback training targets a range of cognitive functions and brain processes to help individuals improve various aspects of cognitive performance and emotional regulation. The specific cognitive functions addressed during neurofeedback training may vary depending on individual needs, goals, and presenting symptoms.

Neurofeedback training offers a comprehensive approach to addressing various cognitive functions and brain processes, to improve overall cognitive performance, emotional regulation, and well-being. By targeting specific brainwave patterns associated with cognitive and emotional functioning, neurofeedback enables individuals to learn to self-regulate their brain activity and achieve desired cognitive and behavioral outcomes.

Let’s take a look at some of the cognitive functions that are commonly targeted in neurofeedback training.


Neurofeedback training often focuses on improving attentional control, sustained attention, and selective attention. Individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attention-related difficulties may benefit from training to increase attentional stability and focus.

Memory & Rentention

Neurofeedback training may target memory functions, including working memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory. Training protocols aim to enhance memory encoding, retention, and retrieval processes, leading to improvements in learning and cognitive performance.

Processing Speed

Neurofeedback can help individuals improve processing speed, which refers to the rate at which information is processed and responded to. Faster processing speed can enhance cognitive efficiency and performance across various tasks and domains.

Executive Functions

Executive functions, such as planning, organization, problem-solving, inhibition, and cognitive flexibility, are often addressed in neurofeedback training. Training protocols aim to enhance executive functioning skills, leading to improved cognitive control and adaptive behavior.

Emotional Regulation

Neurofeedback training may target emotional regulation processes, including the modulation of emotional responses, arousal levels, and stress reactivity. By training individuals to regulate their brainwave activity associated with emotional processing, neurofeedback can help improve emotional resilience and well-being.

Cognitive Flexibility

Neurofeedback can help individuals improve cognitive flexibility, which refers to the ability to adapt and switch between different tasks, strategies, or mental sets. Enhanced cognitive flexibility can lead to improved problem-solving abilities and adaptive behavior.


Neurofeedback training may target brainwave patterns associated with alertness, arousal, and vigilance. By training individuals to increase their level of alertness and maintain vigilance over time, neurofeedback can enhance cognitive performance and responsiveness.


Neurofeedback training aims to improve self-regulation skills, including the ability to modulate one’s own physiological and psychological states. By providing real-time feedback on brainwave activity, individuals learn to self-regulate their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral responses.

Motor Skills

In some cases, neurofeedback training may target motor skills and coordination, particularly in individuals with motor control deficits or movement disorders. Training protocols aim to enhance motor planning, coordination, and execution through targeted neurofeedback interventions.

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.
