Frequently Asked Questions

Edmonton Health & Performance Psychology Clinic

Can you really train your brain?

Yes, you do have the ability to train your brain. The biggest discovery in the history of neuroscience is neuroplasticity; the brain’s innate ability to adapt to environmental demands through functional reorganization, increasing pathway efficiency and growing new neural networks. In terms of the extreme cognitive demands of the sport, neuroplasticity is a major factor in any athlete’s performance potential. In principle, the process is like how muscles improve to meet performance demands when put under physical stress. We train the brain to process greater amounts of visual information faster and more accurately so that you make better decisions, and your physical reactions are faster and more accurate, especially when under stress. We use a variety of high-tech tools and techniques to test for specific weaknesses and in turn improve performance. These facilitate training of a wide range of specific visual and neural skill sets to advanced levels.
