  • Discover the world of thought controlled computing with the Muse brain sensing headband by InteraXon – cutting edge mind tech that uses micro EEG technology in headband form for brain sensing and neurofeedback.

    Muse Benefits Your BrainMuse is a brain fitness tool that helps you do more with your mind, and more with your life, in just 3 minutes a day. Studies show that the focused-attention and mindfulness exercises upon which Muse is based can cause the brain to change itself, making it more resistant to distractions. Muse makes this process more motivating, fun and efficient.

    At the core of the Muse training is an exercise designed to help reduce stress, alleviate anxiety and increase focus and concentration. Muse gives you feedback about your brain in real time by translating your brain signals into the sounds of wind. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear calm and settled winds. When your mind is active the winds will pick up and blow. Learning to keep the winds calm trains your brain to stay focused and resist distractions.

    Muse: the brain sensing headband is a brain fitness tool that measures brain signals much like a heart rate monitor senses your heartbeat. Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.

  • A Quick Review of Meditation

    July 14, 2014

    Simply put, meditation is a state of relaxed focus. It doesn’t have to be complex. It is a matter of getting comfortable, closing your eyes, and focusing inward. What you choose to focus upon while in this relaxed state can vary according to what you desire at the time. Common focal points for meditators through […]

  • The Puzzle of Consciousness: Watch Full Video of World Science Festival Panel

    Permanent Address: By Gary Stix | May 30, 2013 Unraveling the mystery of consciousness remains perhaps the biggest challenge in all neuroscience, so big and amorphous that most brain scientists won’t go near the topic, leaving philosophers to speculate about the a prioris. Even defining what consciousness is quickly devolves into lengthy and often ponderous […]

  • The Riddle of Consciousness

    BY GARY MARCUS | The New Yorker     A few weeks ago, while staying with my in-laws, my four-month-old son woke up at two-thirty in the morning. He was hungry, and, knowing that he would not be coaxed back to sleep without a bottle, I brought him downstairs to the kitchen, where his crying stopped abruptly. […]

  • Hemi-Sync’s binaural beat CDs can help you experience enhanced mental, physical, and emotional states.

    Save 20% & Unleash Your Full Potential with Brain Stimulating CDs or MP3s

    Hemi-Sync is a scientifically based and clinically proven “audio-guidance” technology that uses sound to influence brainwave activity for a variety of reasons like meditation, focused attention, stress reduction and sleep enhancement.  This patented, and highly sophisticated is backed by over 40 years of research.  For more details, visit the Hemi-Sync website.

    Refined with over 50 years of research and development, and supported by numerous independent studies, reports, and articles, the patented Hemi-Sync® technology has been scientifically and clinically proven to be effective. Would you like to:

    • tap into more of your brain’s innate abilities?
    • enter deep meditative states reliably and easily?
    • reduce stress?
    • enhance creativity and become more productive?
    • increase concentration and focus your attention when needed?
    • experience deep, restorative sleep and refreshing catnaps?
    • or uncover your intuitive talents?

    This unique audio-guidance process works through the generation of complex, multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brainwave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi-Sync®, where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence. Brainwave maps with Hemi-Sync Different Hemi-Sync® signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, focused attention or other desired states. The particular elements for each recording are carefully selected and integrated with the appropriate Hemi-Sync® sound frequencies to enhance the desired effect.
