Individualized brain mapping aims to provide a detailed and personalized characterization of an individual’s brain structure, function, and connectivity, with implications for basic neuroscience research, clinical diagnosis, and personalized interventions. This involves the identification and characterization of specific neural networks and brain regions in an individual’s brain.

Everyone is different and our brains all function in unique ways. Neurofeedback training that works wonders for one person may not have an effect on another person. Having a licensed doctor create a training program based on individual brain mapping is the only way to ensure a tailored program for a person’s unique needs.

Let’s take a look at the main factors involved in individualized brain mapping.


Various neuroimaging techniques are used to map the structure, function, and connectivity of the brain. This includes structural imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to visualize brain anatomy, functional imaging techniques such as functional MRI (fMRI) to measure brain activity and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to map white matter tracts and connectivity.

Individual Variables

Individualized brain mapping takes into account the variability in brain structure and function across individuals. Factors such as age, sex, genetics, and life experiences can influence brain organization and function, necessitating a personalized approach to brain mapping.

Clinical Relevance

In clinical contexts, individualized brain mapping aims to identify neural correlates of specific cognitive functions, behaviors, or neurological disorders. By mapping brain regions associated with these functions or disorders, clinicians can tailor interventions and treatments to target the individual’s unique neurobiological profile.

Correctly Utilizing Multimodal Data

Individualized brain mapping often involves the integration of data from multiple neuroimaging modalities, such as structural MRI, functional MRI, DTI, and electroencephalography (EEG). Combining information from these different modalities allows for a more comprehensive understanding of brain structure, function, and connectivity.

Computational Methodology

Advanced computational methods, including machine learning algorithms and network analysis techniques, are often employed to analyze and interpret individualized brain mapping data. These methods can help identify patterns, relationships, and biomarkers within the data that may not be apparent through traditional analysis approaches.

Medical Validation & Interpretation

Individualized brain mapping findings need to be validated and interpreted in the context of existing neuroscientific knowledge and relevant clinical or research questions. This involves comparing individual brain maps to normative atlases, conducting statistical analyses, and integrating findings with behavioral, cognitive, or clinical assessments.


Brain mapping can be performed using task-based paradigms, where individuals perform specific cognitive or motor tasks during neuroimaging scans to activate relevant brain regions. Resting-state fMRI, on the other hand, captures intrinsic brain activity while individuals are at rest, providing insights into functional connectivity patterns within the brain.

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.
