Why Does Neurofeedback Work?

The more that the brain practices concentration, the easier the task becomes.  This is the basis for all learning. The Peak Achievement Training® activates the Executive Attention Network part of the brain--the part that has been recently identified as controlling attention to important tasks and to new learning. With this continued mental exercise, brain function improves, the metabolism and blood flow to the affected parts of the brain are increased, and the tissue grows better connections between brain cells. This is very similar to the tissue changes after exercising a muscle.

By enhancing the function of the Anterior Cingulate Cortex and the prefrontal lobe, the Peak Achievement Trainer® improves the user’s ability to pay attention. Due to the patents that have been issued for the Peak Achievement Trainer® and the InAll protocol, the Trainer is the only Neurovideofeedback™ method that can be used for directly strengthening the Executive Attention Network and Anterior Cingulate Cortex to improve concentration.

Measurable Results

An important advantage in using the Peak Achievement Trainer® is that it has the ability to provide measurable results. Training sessions can be saved and later printed out for study and review with the student. Key activities can be videoed in combination with the client's pattern of Focus and Alertness, wirelessly at a distance. Coaches and athletes have found this to be very helpful in tracking progress so that they know precisely how they are doing. Athletes can individually learn, and trainers can actually teach their clients how to visualize their performance more effectively, since the Trainer reflects how absorbed they are in the image. Once they are absorbed, the Trainer will tell how focused the athlete is on the activity they are imaging, as well as how alert they are. You can then analyze their sequence of focus, alertness, and microbreaks, and compare it with an optimum sequence. The coach can actually watch their focus wax and wane as they visualize each part of the activity, and intervene to improve it.

Results are quick. Improvements can be achieved in less than five 20 to 30-minute sessions, with peak mental training in under 20 sessions. The improvements are very long lasting. The Peak Achievement Trainer® can be used to improve an athlete's focus on sights, sounds, or even a particular part of their body. This can be particularly helpful if the session can be combined with or followed by coaching on how to move this body part more effectively. There are many powerful approaches that can be created with this new ability to actually see how well an athlete is focusing.

The Trainer is the only Neurovideofeedback™ system available that is very user-friendly, portable, understandable, and affordable. It is designed both for individual use by athletes or for professional use by trainers, coaches, and sport psychologists. Athletes can become more mentally fit with the Trainer. They can quickly improve their ability to visualize that perfect performance, reduce anxiety, help eliminate pain, and better their odds at winning. They may be able to help themselves to get to, and stay in, "The Zone", and learn how to enhance their "Iceberg Profile", which measures moods associated with winning. It may also help to improve strength and fitness training by enhancing their focus as they pump iron.

Performance Results

Our clients typically report significant increases in their ability to focus, and improved memory, after only three or four training sessions. The charts below, using the older software depict the results achieved by one trainee in learning to cycle between concentration (the decreased output) and brief periods of unfocused relaxation (increased output), both initially (Session 2), and two sessions later. Look at the large, constant difference between conditions in the second graph, recorded over an 80-second time period. In Session 4, he did this consistently, for five full cycles. This level of improvement in concentration in the early stages of neurofeedback training has not been seen with prior training approaches.

Neurofeedback Study Results

Study after study is demonstrating significant positive results using neurofeedback for a wide array of problems and applications. As an example, in the academic area, a study at the University of Tennessee of over 1,000 students with attention problems showed the average improvement in grades was 1.5 levels (for example, from a GPA of a D to a C+. Their standardized test scores improved by about 2.5 grade levels, and IQ performance test scores improved by an average of twenty points.

The chart below vividly shows the measured improvement with neurofeedback training in an independent study of 104 adults with attention problems on the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) after training for 20 sessions. The TOVA is a standardized test that measures concentration.

Peak Achievement Training Offers Faster Improvement

Peak Achievement Training® may be three times faster than any other method of neurofeedback concentration training, according to a study with football players conducted by Dr. Jonathan Cowan. Initially, a majority of the players had lower than normal ability to pay attention, as determined by a Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA).. After only five to nine training sessions of twenty to forty minutes each with the Trainer, their concentration levels improved markedly, as measured by another TOVA test. The average improvement was about the same as previous approaches could do in twenty sessions. None of their test scores was below normal after the training.

To Dr. Cowan’s knowledge, these are the most rapid changes in attention test scores with neurofeedback ever recorded. The student-athletes with the lowest attention scores at the beginning of the study reported that after the first or second session, they were better able to focus in class. All of the players said they were better able to concentrate on the plays and that their weightlifting had improved. After intensely focusing on their hamstring muscles during one Peak Achievement Training® session, they were immediately able to do more repetitions, and their enthusiasm for pumping iron improved. Soon, they could add more weight to the increased repetitions.
