'Neurofeedback clearly cultivates changes in EEG patterns. But preliminary research has shown that cognitive training, or ‘pushing the brain’ to develop new connections may be capable of nurturing similar brainwave changes.' - Joseph A. Sandford, Ph.D.

BrainTrain is pleased to announce that it is offering a $2500 research grant through the ISNR Research Foundation to fund a study comparing the efficacy of cognitive training to that of neurofeedback. ISNR, the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research, is an organization devoted to the promotion of clinical practice, educational applications, and research in applied neuroscience for the purpose of better understanding and enhancing brain function. The mission of the ISNR Research Foundation is to promote quality neurofeedback research.
BrainTrain develops and markets software for neurofeedback, as well as for cognitive training. The company has a niche in the field, because it not only offers both types of products, but its SmartMind Pro neurofeedback software also combines the two types of interventions in one product. Previous research in the field supports both neurofeedback and cognitive training, as well as the combination of the two approaches to improve functioning in ADHD and mTBI individuals.
Submissions for the grant are due by July 1, 2014. For more information and an application, visit http://www.isnr-researchfoundation.org. For more information about BrainTrain’s cognitive training and neurofeedback products, visit http://www.braintrain.com.
