The Mechanics of The Cortex. This is a basic description of brain functioning in certain lobes of the brain. This description is not definitive nor all inclusive.
Frontal Lobes: Have been found to play a part in impulse control, judgment, language production, working memory, motor function, sexual behavior, socialization, and spontaneity. The frontal lobes assist in reasoning, problem-solving, planning, coordinating, controlling, emotions, and executing behavior. All placements that begin with an “F” are in the Frontal Lobes.
Temporal Lobes: Is involved in auditory processing and is home to the primary auditory cortex. It is also heavily involved in semantics both in speech and vision. The temporal lobe contains the hippocampus and is therefore involved in memory formation. All placements which begin with “T” are in the Temporal Lobes.
Motor Cortex and Somatosensory Cortex: This region of the brain, sometimes referred to as the Central Lobe, is involved in the planning, control, and execution of voluntary motor functions and receives information from the skin. All placements which begin with a “C” except “CB” placements are concerning this region. “CB” placements are in the cerebellum.
Parietal Lobes: Play important roles in integrating sensory information from various parts of the body, knowledge of numbers and their relations, and in the manipulation of objects. Portions of the parietal lobe are involved with visuospatial processing. This region is also filled with the stimuli related to touch, pressure, temperature and pain. Placements beginning with the letter “P” are placed on this region.
Occipital Lobes: Are the visual processing center of the mammalian brain, containing most of the anatomical region of the visuals cortex. The occipital lobes are also found to play a part in calm sleep. All placements which begin with “O” are concerning this region of the brain.
The Cerebellum: Is considered the “little brain” and plays a role in the integration of sensory perception and motor output. It controls fine movement and coordination, balance, and equilibrium, and muscle tone. The placements for this region begin with “CB.”
Brain Wave Basics
Delta Waves: Delta waves run the physical body. They are found in non-dreaming sleep. It is the brainwave that remains when all the others have shut down. These exist in the frequency ranges from .5 to 3.0 Hz.
Theta Waves: Theta is the frequency of the subconscious which contains our memories, emotions, emotional triggers, creative and spiritual insight. We also store our painful secrets here, which we block out to survive what we feel unable to cope with. These exist in the frequency ranges from 3.0 to 7.0 Hz.
Alpha: Alpha is the brainwave of dreams, fantasies, feelings of connection and that all is as it should be. It is also the gateway to meditation through relaxed detachment. It is supposed to be most prominent during relaxation with eyes closed, and upon deep self-introspection. These exist in the frequency ranges from 7.0 to 12.0 Hz.
SMR (Sensory Motor Response or Low Beta): This brainwave is the center of the mind-body connection. This provides for voluntary body functioning and allows for a connection to the present. This is important for “living in the now. “ Meditations to increase this brainwave focus on breathing and or body functioning. This brain wave is within the ranges of 12 to 16 Hz.
Beta: Beta is the most rapid of the brainwave. It is active when we are thinking or solving problems, when our attention is focused on the world around us. This is the active awareness state we experience from day to day in our work and our play. These brainwaves are found from 16 to 23 Hz.
High Beta: This brainwave frequency is found when we are performing logical processing and complex problem solving. These brainwaves exist from 23-28 Hz.
Gamma: This brainwave frequency set is still being researched. The gamma waives actually can exist with frequencies from 26 all the way up to 70. The Brain State Technologies technology does not yet effect Gamma Waives. However, work is constantly being performed to improve this technology. This area of brain waives is involved with cognitive activities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The human brain works on electricity, which is generated by the brain in order to complete its tasks. The electricity is measured in hertz. One hertz is one energy wave per second.
The human brain functions utilizing between 0 to 60 hertz each and every second. In order to perform brainwave optimization with real time balancing™, an electroencephalogram (EEG) is performed. While the EEG is recording the brainwave frequencies from where the electrodes are placed, the computer is analyzing 128 soundings per second and running this analysis through algorithms to allow the computer to emit a sound that correlates with each brainwave frequency from 0 to 60.
Accordingly, for the point where the electrode is recording, whenever the brain produces a frequency band of 1, it hears the same tone, and for 2 it hears another tone that is always the same when it produces a 2 wave frequency band. There is a tone (or set of tones) assigned to each band. The computer emits these tones in correlation with the electricity being created, thus mirroring the functioning of the brain.
The computer continues to monitor and mirror the brain until the behavioral algorithms signal that the brain knows it is being “mirrored”. From this “mirroring,” a language is born. Now the computer can speak to the brain regarding each frequency band utilizing the tone assigned to that band. So the computer will now roll into a modeling program to show the brain the optimal frequency bands for this area of the brain.
After the modeling program, the computer rolls into a coaching program which will emit a tone with a negative tone behind it if the brain is producing too much of a frequency band or alternatively if the amount of a band is appropriate, then the tone for that band will be played with a positive tone behind it.
The brainwave optimization system utilizes this programming to speak to brains to train them to function more optimally. Yes, all that is happening is a conversation with the brain.
The subconscious (sometimes called the unconscious) part of our brain generates the electricity to perform all functions. It knows exactly what electrical frequency bands to generate for each function. For example, if a client is told to lift his arm, his conscious mind decides if he will do it or not. If he decides to lift his arm, he commands his subconscious to lift his arm. His subconscious will then generate the exactly correct frequency band from the correct neurons down the correct neuro-pathways to the correct nerves to make the correct muscles flex for the arm to raise.
Accordingly, the subconscious is exactly aware of each neuron and nerve in the entire body. That is why the subconscious brain is processing 400 billion pieces of information every second. Our conscious mind is only aware of up to 2000 per second.
The subconscious brain learns how to generate its patterns regarding our feelings and behaviors based on its perceived experiences. It basically utilizes trial and error. Based on an individual’s environment and experiences, the brain could be learning how to function in a way that does not let an individual leave his house.
The brainwave optimization utilizes frequency band ratio modeling to train brains toward optimal functioning. This is significant because it means that this system realizes that all brains will function differently. By utilizing the ratio modeling system, brainwave optimization allows every brain to function differently as long as they are balanced. This allows for the individuality of the human species. The appropriate balance guidelines were obtained by studying the brains of Tibetan monks.
In order to train a brain, a two-hour assessment is performed which includes a brain mapping. From this assessment, the trainers can see the areas of the brain where the frequencies are being created in an unbalanced manor. Then the trainers run 90 to 120 minute training sessions performing the appropriate exercises to train the brain to perform in balance. Based on the levels of imbalance and the amount of time the brain has been running imbalanced, the amount of training sessions will vary from 10 to 150. Our average client performs 20 sessions.
