The Brain Trainers

Unlike traditional tutoring services that seek to help students master a subject, brain training purports to enhance comprehension and the ability to analyze and mentally manipulate concepts, images, sounds and instructions. In a word, it seeks to make students smarter.

Brainwave Morphing Abstract

Abstract for Brainwave Morphing and Qigong for Rehabilitation Workshop

Brainwave morphing is a process that combines multimedia, gaming, and interactive brainwave technology for biofeedback analysis. Similar to a conductor leading an orchestra, morphing trains the mind to direct the brain’s performance to respond to positive thought. Qigong enhances the mind’s direction for the brain to emit low frequency alpha and theta brainwaves with increased coherence between left and right hemispheres. Brainwave morphing entrains the brain for low frequency coherence, which accelerates learning and self-healing, thus valuable for rehabilitation, such as trauma recovery.
