Improved Brain Performance & Flexibility

In addition to the therapeutic applications of neurofeedback training, this type of training has also be used for the enhancement or maintenance of brain functioning.  Neurofeedback training can be utilised to help a trainee understand desirable mental states, and to help them to recognise, learn and achieve these states.  Training increases flexibility and is directed towards being able to achieve the appropriate state at the appropriate time. (Collura, 2014)

To enhance or improve brain performance neurotherapy has been utilised in the domains of: Business; elite sports; medicine, the arts; car racing; the military and space preparedness.

Elite Golf

Research has identified effective neurofeedback training of elite golfers, which has assisted them to achieve what has been called an “iceberg profile”, 14 out of 15 participants reported significant improvement in their individual game as measured by pre- and post-training scores.   Improvements were also found in other measures including on the obsessive compulsive scale. These results demonstrated the value of neurofeedback training in a peak performance context. (Collura, 2014. P146)
