BrainTap creator Patrick K. Porter, Ph.D., began his journey into the science of calming the brain at age 12 when his father taught a relaxation method to him and his eight siblings. Porter soon recorded his first visualization on a cassette recorder and used it to transform himself from a self-professed “struggling student and storied troublemaker” into a three-sport athletic captain as well as an honor roll student. The science behind BrainTap relies on four key elements that enable the sessions to induce brainwave entrainment. Binaural Beats When two different tones, separated in frequency by only a few Hertz, are introduced one in each ear the brain perceives a third, unique tone.
Binaural beats work by creating this phantom frequency, which the brain then mimics. For example, if we play a 220 Hz carrier tone into the left ear and a 226.5 Hz carrier tone into the right ear, your brain perceives the difference between the two, which is a subtle beat frequency of 6.5 Hz, the same frequency associated with deep, meditative states. Your brain naturally follows this frequency, and you experience this deeply relaxed state.
Guided Visualization In general, the visual imagery process involves the individual setting aside a period for relaxation, during which he or she contemplates mental images depicting a desired result or goal. This exercise is done during the spoken-word sessions to help the listener envision a consistent image (either literal or symbolic) of the results desired from the session.
10 Cycle Holographic Music is a sonic technology that produces a 360-degree sound environment.
Isochronic Tones are equal intensity pulses of sound separated by an interval of silence. They turn on and off rapidly, but the speed depends on the desired brain frequency. The discrete nature of isochronic tones makes them particularly easy for the brain to follow. While binaural beats rely on balanced hearing in both ears, isochronic tones work effectively for nearly everyone, except for someone with complete hearing loss. This is one of the reasons BrainTap’s proprietary algorithms incorporate both types of tones.
My Opinion: I found the app helpful and relaxed my mind so I could sleep.
