Neurofeedback is constantly being tested and researched. Our technology has been through multiple research studies including some done by Harvard, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Wilmington, and UCLA. There are also studies on neurofeedback proving its efficacy in sports and peak performance training. Here are a few examples of the research behind the process:

Hammond, D. Corydon. "Neurofeedback Treatment of Depression and Anxiety." Journal of Adult Development 12.2-3 (2005): 131-37. Web.
- A meta analysis of multiple research studies and scholarly articles regarding the efficacy of neurofeedback treating depression and anxiety
- Depression and anxiety are common after injuries, pre and post performance.
- How a player deals with anxiety is one of the biggest factors in being successful in sports and life
- Very significant improvement in symptoms after 10-12 sessions
- "If any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used"
Vernon, David, Tobias Egner, Nick Cooper, Theresa Compton, Claire Neilands, Amna Sheri, and John Gruzelier. "The Effect of Training Distinct Neurofeedback Protocols on Aspects of Cognitive Performance." International Journal of Psychophysiology 47.1 (2003): 75-85.
- This study researched the effect of enhancing SMR activity and theta activity on cognitive performance in healthy individuals
- All groups showed improved accuracy and working memory
- 8 sessions are enough to create significant changes
- Conclusion is that neurofeedback training can positively influence cognitive processing in healthy individuals
An Assessment of an Automated EEG Biofeedback System for Attention Deficits in a Substance Use Disorders Residential Treatment Setting
Keith, Julian R., Lobsang Rapgay, Don Theodore, Jeffrey M. Schwartz, and Jae L. Ross. "An Assessment of an Automated EEG Biofeedback System for Attention Deficits in a Substance Use Disorders Residential Treatment Setting." Psychology of Addictive Behaviors 29.1 (2015): 17-25.
- This study proves the efficacy of neurofeedback in alleviating the symptoms of attention deficit disorders.
- Our technology was used
- Reaction time, omission errors, commission errors, recognizing a target vs. non-target all significantly improved after using our technology
Scott, William C., BSW, CCPD, David Kaiser, Ph.D, Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D, and Stephen I. Sideroff, Ph.D. "Effects of an EEG Biofeedback Protocol on a Mixed Substance Abusing Population."The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse 31(2005): 455-69.
- This study showcases the impact technology has on a substance abuse population.
- The reason it applies to sports is it proves the effectiveness in improving attention deficit issues.
- If the technology is strong enough to help people with severe issues, imagine how impactful it will be in fine tuning focus for people trying to achieve peak performance!
