The Positive Effects of Neurofeedback on Academic Performance

Many studies have shown the positive effects of neurofeedback on academic performance in children with attention deficit disorders and language problems. A growing number of education experts and researchers believe that “retraining the brain” (a simplified definition of neurofeedback) is beneficial for all students and could reverse the decline that has been seen in academic excellence in the United States.

Many studies have shown that students have more difficulty learning when they are stressed. Whether the stress is caused by teachers, other students or problems outside the classroom, it has a negative effect on learning. Testing anxiety has become more common in recent years. Most classrooms will have one or more students who suffer from test anxiety, which is caused by feelings of stress.

Balancing brainwave activity decreases stress level, stress intensity and stress frequency. In one study, 67% of participants improved after only 7 training sessions.  Overall, 93% improved in either stress level, intensity of symptoms or frequency of symptoms. Reduced stress alone may be enough to help students improve academically.

Improved focus is one of the positive effects of neurofeedback on academic performance in children with attention deficit disorders, but all students can have difficulty focusing. There are many distractions in the classroom and no one can pay attention 100% of the time. The mind has a tendency to wander. We think about other things. When we do that, we miss things and often those things are important.
The training is simple and painless. A holistic alternative to smart drugs.
