Neurofeedback Training for Performance

Neurofeedback Training for Performance

Posted on: May 9th, 2023 by Neurohealth Associates

Neurofeedback training can help with general performance by improving brain function in specific areas. These include performance areas related to attention, memory, processing speed, and emotional regulation. When these areas of the brain are functioning optimally, individuals may experience improved cognitive performance, better focus, increased motivation, and better emotional regulation.

Neurofeedback training procedures and methodologies for performance and medical symptoms are very similar. Both training procedures are non-invasive and do not require medication or other at-home programs to follow.

Neurofeedback Performance Training

During neurofeedback training, sensors are placed on the scalp to monitor brain activity, and the individual receives real-time feedback about their brainwave patterns. By modifying their behavior in response to the feedback, individuals can learn to regulate their brain activity, leading to improved brain function and cognitive performance.

Neurofeedback training for the performance of any type needs to be handled by an experienced medical professional. Licensed doctors are able to develop individual training programs tailored specifically to the needs of an individual. Training programs based on broad criteria are more likely to fail.

Studies have shown that neurofeedback training can lead to improvements in cognitive performance, including better attention and working memory, faster processing speed, and improved reaction time. Neurofeedback training has been used to improve performance in athletes, musicians, and other high-performing individuals by helping them to regulate their mental and emotional states, leading to improved performance under pressure.

Common Areas of Neurofeedback Training for Performance

Neurofeedback training is commonly used to improve cognitive and emotional performance in a variety of contexts. These include:

Sports Performance

Neurofeedback training can help athletes improve their focus, attention, and reaction time, leading to improved performance on the field or court.

Academic Performance

Neurofeedback training can help students improve their cognitive function and academic performance by improving focus, memory, and processing speed.

Performing Arts

Neurofeedback training can help musicians, actors, and other performing artists improve their emotional regulation and ability to stay calm under pressure, leading to improved performance.

Executive Functioning

Neurofeedback training can help individuals improve their executive functioning, such as planning, organization, and decision-making, leading to improved productivity and performance in the workplace.

Public Speaking

Neurofeedback training can help individuals improve their confidence, reduce anxiety, and improve their ability to articulate their thoughts when speaking in public.

It’s important to note that neurofeedback training should not be used as a substitute for other treatments, such as therapy or medication. Neurofeedback training should only be pursued under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie 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.
