Is Neurofeedback Scientifically Proven?

Brain training using neurofeedback therapy has paved the way for meaningful, positive changes in the lives of countless individuals. The growing scientific literature on this approach as well as the milestones we see our clients achieve daily is a remarkable confirmation of the real, measurable benefits neurofeedback can deliver.
Being a relatively new methodology, however, this question continues to be asked and deserves to be answered: “Is there scientific evidence proving that neurofeedback works?”
On this page, we deliver some key information to provide further clarity and understanding on the effects of neurofeedback and the science behind it. We walk you through how each neurofeedback session is conducted in our clinic, using a specialist-led, scientifically-proven technology. Moreover, we collated some of the most important studies, research and peer-reviewed articles in recent history that dive deep on the efficacy of neurofeedback to manage a wide range of issues, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, as well as improving brain performance and more.

How Does the Science of Brain Training Work?

Brain training allows you to harness the power of your brain to improve its own abilities and solve problems that come in the way of peak performance. At Evolve Brain Training, we do this by using the science of neurofeedback. This NASA-patented technology is medication-free and has proven to be successful in resolving various issues including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, focus, ADHD, chronic pain and insomnia. The results are so accurate that we offer a money-back guarantee if there is no improvement after the sessions.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is biofeedback for the brain. It is a non-invasive technique that helps the brain self-regulate.We simply measure brain activity using sensors and special softwares and relay that information back to the brain in real time via audio and video display. This information about its own activity helps the brain adjust itself for better performance.
Improving the brain’s self-regulation helps clients function better cognitively, emotionally as well as behaviorally. It can be a useful tool for anyone looking to maximize their brain’s potential and their performance: whether it be athletes wishing to improve their game, adults interested in sharpening their memory or children dealing with ADHD.

What Happens During a Neurofeedback Session?

Neurons in our brains talk to each other through synapses which produce the resulting brain waves. We attach sensors to the scalp which record these brain waves. This process is completely painless and non-invasive.
We do not transmit any signals to the brain, we only listen in on the electrical activity and record the information revealed through EEG. A computer then processes these brain waves and using the software we show you the ebb and flow of your waves in the form of changes in audio and video output.
The specific frequencies we select and sensor locations on the scalp are uniquely tailored to suit your personal needs. These can vary as you progress through your brain training sessions.

Neurofeedback in Literature

What does science say about neurofeedback? In a nutshell, existing literature indicates there is sufficient and continuously growing evidence-based information on the use of neurofeedback as a treatment for specific neurological conditions. This collection of neurofeedback resources provide a solid reference point for anyone interested in further study.

Frequently asked questions

How much do neurofeedback sessions cost?
You can find our complete price list here - Price List
Will insurance cover neurofeedback?
Here at Evolve Brain Training we do not process insurance claims. We can provide a statement for you to submit to your insurance company.
How many sessions will I need?

Since neurofeedback involves learning and every person is unique, the type, order and pace of change differs from person to person. You will start experiencing benefits within the first few sessions. But for these effects to last, we recommend a full package of 20 sessions. However, some may require more than 20 sessions.
