During neurofeedback training, various types of data are collected and used to provide real-time feedback on brainwave activity. The primary source of data comes from electroencephalography (EEG), which measures electrical activity in the brain.

the data collected during neurofeedback training provides valuable insights into brain function and allows individuals to learn to self-regulate their brainwave activity. By receiving real-time feedback and engaging in targeted training protocols, individuals can work towards optimizing brain function and achieving specific cognitive, emotional, or behavioral goals.

Here’s a list of the data that is most commonly collected/used during neurofeedback training.

EEG Signals

EEG electrodes are placed on the scalp to detect and record electrical signals generated by the brain. These signals are typically categorized into different frequency bands, including delta (0.5-4 Hz), theta (4-8 Hz), alpha (8-12 Hz), beta (12-30 Hz), and gamma (>30 Hz). The amplitudes and frequencies of these brainwave patterns are monitored in real-time during neurofeedback sessions.

EEG Data

The raw EEG signals captured by the electrodes are amplified, filtered, and digitized to provide real-time measurements of brainwave activity. This raw EEG data serves as the basis for providing feedback to the individual undergoing neurofeedback training.

Power Spectral Analysis

Power spectral analysis is performed to analyze the distribution of power across different frequency bands in the EEG signals. This analysis helps identify dominant brainwave frequencies and deviations from normal patterns. Feedback may be provided based on changes in power within specific frequency bands relative to baseline or desired targets.

Brainwave Metrics

Various metrics derived from EEG data, such as amplitude, frequency, coherence, and symmetry, are used to assess brain function and guide neurofeedback training protocols. For example, individuals may be trained to increase or decrease specific brainwave frequencies or to improve coherence and balance between different brain regions.

Real-Time Feedback

The collected EEG data is processed in real-time to provide visual or auditory feedback to the individual undergoing neurofeedback training. This feedback is typically presented in the form of visual displays, such as graphs, charts, or animations, or auditory cues, such as tones or music. The feedback is designed to inform the individual about their brainwave activity and help them learn to modulate it.

Session Logs & Progress Tracking

Data logs may be maintained to track session parameters, including EEG metrics, feedback signals, session duration, and any subjective observations or feedback from the individual. These session logs can be used to monitor progress over time and adjust the training protocol as needed.

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.
