I am Scott H. Frey, Ph.D., Ed.M., an award-winning scientist, mentor, and lifelong endurance athlete. For the past 30 years, I led a research program that focused on understanding the relationship between the brain and human performance. 

My experiences and education have convinced me that the brain holds enormous and largely overlooked potential to revolutionize how we perform athletically, at work, and in life more generally. I started Cerebral Performance to help individuals and groups harness this power through evidence-based mental performance coaching.

Of course there is a lot more to my story. If you are curious about my education, peer-reviewed science, and background, visit the “About” page. 

Check out the Coaching and Consulting pages to learn more about my work. I’d love to meet and learn about your interests and goals. Schedule a free initial session by contacting me directly at scott@cerebralperformance.com.

Scott began working for me as a freelance consultant and then moved into the role of fractional CSO. He helped us to identify and critically evaluate the scientific literature that is relevant to our pursuits in the brain stimulation space. Scott is a highly accomplished cognitive neuroscientist and has a deep understanding of neuroscience and behavior. He delivers high-quality work on schedule and is a great person to work with. We continue to stay in touch. I highly recommend Scott!

After completing my PhD in neuroscience, I joined Scott’s group to further my academic and research training. Little did I know that Scott’s mentorship would have such a profound impact on my life. Through his guidance and leadership, I gained a newfound clarity about my career path, my values, and my purpose. Today, I lead my own group, and the principles I live by and the ambitions I strive for are deeply influenced by Scott. I believe his influence will always be a part of who I am.

Professor Frey is a lighthouse in today’s storm of oversaturation of information combined with rampant misinformation that becomes all too popular on the internet.  For a subject as important as brain health, he helped my company sift thru the overwhelming amount of (sometimes contradictory) studies to get to the core of the most relevant and powerful evidence as it relates to the importance of several key amino acids for cognitive function.  With such an extensive background in neuroscience he was also able to work surprisingly fast, and not only to refine, but to add to the large pool of (often confusing) research that we gathered for him to assess.  Would highly recommend for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of, or optimize the performance of the human brain….
