A CHANCE TO GROWS NEUROTECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT OFFERS TWO TECHNOLOGIES TO THE COMMUNITY. AUDIO VISUAL ENTRAINMENT (AVE) EXPOSES THE VISUAL CHANNEL TO PULSATING LIGHTS AND THE AUDITORY CHANNEL TO RHYTHMIC BEATS OR TONES. IT ALLOWS ONE TO REACH A STATE OF DEEP RELAXATION THAT FOSTERS STRESS REDUCTION AND SELF-IMPROVEMENT. THROUGH LIGHTS AND SOUNDS, AVE EXPOSES THE BRAIN TO USEFUL PATTERNS AND HELPS ONE ACCESS THE BRAIN MORE EASILY. THE AVE DEVICE IS NOT ONLY PORTABLE, BUT CAN BE USED IN THE PRIVACY OF THE HOME. EEG BIOFEEDBACK IS OUR OTHER TECHNOLOGY. EEG BIOFEEDBACK IS A PAINLESS, NON-INVASIVE PROCEDURE WHERE THE CLIENT RECEIVES FEEDBACK FROM HIS OR HER BRAIN WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF SENSORS PLACED ON HIS OR HER SCALP AND EARS. OUR SYSTEM USES FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIES AND VIDEO GRAPHICS TO HELP ONES BRAIN RELAX AND REACH OPTIMAL STATE, IDEAL FOR LEARNING AND EFFICIENCY. WHEN A LESS DESIRABLE BRAINWAVE STATE EMERGES, THE GRAPHIC OR MOVIE SLOWS DOWN AND THE BRAIN RESPONDS TO THE SLOWER FEEDBACK. THIS ENCOURAGES AN EFFICIENT BRAINWAVE PATTERN.
