  • Assess whether neuro-agility training in a higher education environment would impact academic results
  • Performance improvement intervention for more than 200 3rd year physiology students of the University of Pretoria
  • A group of 106 final year students went for brain performance pre-assessment (NAP™) at the beginning of the semester;
  • Students were required to log 50 hours of neuro-agility training;
  • Students were re-assessed on their brain performance at the end of the semester.
