Auditory brain stimulation for home use
Inducing a brain state to help focus, concentration, sleep or mood in children and adults
Based on your training goals and your individual brain patterns (found during analysis of your QEEG assessment), you can order an Auditory Brain Stimulation file that you can use at home, listening to it on your mobile, tablet or desktop.
What is Auditory Brain Stimulation?
Auditory brain stimulation is a non-invasive brain entrainment that is conducted by presenting different frequencies of sound to each ear.
It is based on findings from auditory system research and binaural beats techniques, showing that in such a case, the brain produces a third “phantom” sound which is a frequency that equals the difference between the two tones presented to the ears.
As such, this technology can be used to create frequencies that match brain waves underlying brain functions such as executive performance (cognitive functions).
Listening to such manipulated frequency effects neural networks and functions, and as a result can help improve cognitive performance (Beauchene, C. 2016).
Few scientific examples for the use of auditory brain stimulation for cognitive performance
stimulating the beta (13-30hz) and gamma (above 30hz) frequencies resulted in increased coherence between frontal and parietal areas during working memory maintenance
A significantly better performance in memory span tasks was shown under the use of binaural beats stimulation, compared with the control group.
Some studies suggest that BBT has an impact on the structure of cortical connectivity networks, which in turn effects the network topology of improved memory functions using alpha band (8-12hz) beats
