Advanced Brainwave Stimulation
The process of neural stimulation has been perfected and extended in Mind WorkStation. All forms of audio/visual stimulation are possible, along with revolutionary new methods. Everything from Isochronic tones and binaural beats, to sound filtering, AudioStrobe, and on-screen visualizations. Complex filtering methods allow you to use any audio source as the carrier for brainwave entrainment. And, with the new frequency band selector features, it can do this without distorting music.
EEG-Driven Stimulation / Biofeedback Integration
Mind WorkStation is compatible with many popular biofeedback devices and software packages. You can link up to these devices and use them to control entrainment frequencies, to graph their data along with a session, or even to control on-screen visualizations as a form of biofeedback game.
Advanced Content
Mind WorkStation incorporates some exciting new content types, such as the Ambience Generator, which arranges thousands of small audio samples to produce an original ambient environment, such as a forest, a beach, crystal bowls or wind chimes. The best part about this type of content is that it is different every time you use it!
Playlists, tone chords, on-screen visualizations and many other unique content types are supported. ALL content in Mind WorkStation can be used as a carrier for brainwave stimulation.
Intuitive Work Environment
While Mind WorkStation is easily the most powerful application ever developed for brainwave entrainment, the intuitive interface makes it very simple to perform a variety of common tasks. In fact the program does much of the work for you.The interface is specifically designed for brainwave entrainment and therapy. All the features commonly needed to create sessions are at your fingertips, with additional enhancements that adapt to your working style.
Effects
Mind WorkStation ships with a number of advanced sound effects, including echo, reverb and even “3D sound” features, allowing you to place or move a sound in 3D space. You can adjust the pitch or tempo of any sound file. Filters such as band-pass and low-pass are implemented, along with a wide variety of modulation types such as auto-panning. All of these effects will add to the professionalism of the session and to the psychological effect it has on the client.Most importantly, these effects are specially designed to be used with brainwave entrainment. Sound effects in other programs can often act to degrade the effectiveness of brainwave entrainment. In Mind WorkStation, everything has been meticulously designed to ensure that sound and visual effects will promote brainwave entrainment, not impede it.

 

Professional Brainwave Entrainment Development

Mind WorkStation provides an unmatched feature set for brainwave entrainment use and development.

Supporting both light and sound stimulation with a virtually unlimited frequency range, Mind WorkStation makes all functions of brainwave entrainment possible – from alpha and theta relaxation to beta concentration and delta sleep, to more unconventional frequency ranges such as ultra-high gamma or extremely slow delta.

The design of the application also makes it easy to stimulate the left and right cerebral hemispheres individually, or create more complex constructions such as dissociative or harmonic “box” sessions. Apply towards human enhancement, evoked potential, event-related potential to induced activity and ongoing brain activity.

The process of audio/visual neural stimulation has been perfected and extended in Mind WorkStation. All existing forms of stimulation are possible, along with revolutionary new methods. Everything from Isochronic tones and binaural beats, to sound filtering, AudioStrobe, and on-screen visualizations. Complex sound filtering allows you to use sound files or even entire playlists as the carrier for brainwave entrainment.

New, patented sound filtering techniques allow sound files to be embedded with brainwave entrainment without distorting the music or other audio. It does this by selectively embedding the entrainment into specific frequency bands, leaving the rest of the audio alone.

In the example below, only the lower frequencies are filtered to create entrainment. The higher frequencies are left alone.

Multiple example sessions are included, along with templates and entrainment presets for your convenience.

Biofeedback

Mind WorkStation supports many biofeedback systems such as the ThoughtStream, GSR2, emWave, ProComp2 and Wild Divine’s LightStone hardware. Home users will be able to take greater advantage of their biofeedback system by allowing Mind WorkStation to communicate with the hardware. For example, it can provide advanced feedback mechanisms such as affecting the on-screen visualization in a form of biofeedback game. The advanced graphing capabilities of Mind WorkStation make it ideal for research.

Biofeedback measures can even be used to drive the brain stimulation. For example, a popular method for GSR is to use the carrier (pitch) of a binaural or isochronic beat as the feedback for the GSR device! In this way, you are getting the best of both worlds using the same stimulus – relaxing brainwave entrainment, and biofeedback.

The possibilities are limitless because of the flexibility in the design of Mind WorkStation.

 

EEG-Driven Stimulation / Neurofeedback

Mind WorkStation can connect to most commercial EEG units. It can do this directly through devices such as the NeuroSky or Emotiv EPOC EEG, or through software such as BioExplorer, BioEra and BioGraph.

EEG signals can easily be used to control brainwave stimulation. This is commonly called EEG-Driven Stimulation, and it is an exciting and promising use of this technology. The modular design of Mind WorkStation makes it easier than ever to accomplish this.


As with biofeedback, Mind WorkStation can also be used as an advanced feedback mechanism for neurofeedback by affecting on-screen visualizations or the audio. It can also be used with the program’s advanced 3D graphing system.

 

Research

Mind WorkStation is an ideal research tool, providing a host of useful features along with an unsurpassed level of flexibility. The 3D Graphing capabilities allow you to chart any part of the session, including data received from biofeedback engines. Status windows display all input and output variables. A logging window keeps a detailed log of the events of the session, including a timestamp for each message.

The level of control Mind WorkStation allows is perfect for research in this field. Nothing is left unexplained – all the audio/visual variables present in the session can be accounted for, since waveforms, phase changes, intensity levels, overlapping modulation, spatial positioning, and more are able to be controlled directly and kept track of using the tools at your disposal.

 

Therapy

Mind WorkStation includes all the tools you need to help clients deal with stress, anxieties, achieve altered states of consciousness, meditation or to increase attention and motivation using brainwave entrainment. A wide range of sessions are included, with protocols based on the methods used in clinical studies for everything from stress to learning disabilities.

A unique aspect of Mind WorkStation is the concept of an interactive session between the therapist and the client. Many therapists, clinicians and researchers are exploring the benefits of real-time client-therapist interaction during brainwave entrainment sessions. Using the client’s feedback to find a suitable brainwave frequency has been shown to be particularly effective when dealing with chronic pain and headaches, and further evidence is suggesting it can be a valuable technique for nearly all session types.

 

Hypnotherapy

Brainwave entrainment can be a very useful aide in hypnotherapy, making it easier for clients to enter the ideal receptive state, or enabling work with clients who would normally be unable to enter a receptive state at all.

The multi-track interface of Mind WorkStation makes it very easy to arrange even the most complex hypnosis sessions, and integrate brainwave entrainment or even biofeedback into the mix.

Hypnotherapists will find great use with the microphone recording capabilities and advanced sound effects of Mind WorkStation, such as echo and reverberation. Using 3D positioning features, the voice could be set to move around the listener on custom three dimensional paths. If the client is wearing stereo headphones, this can have a very profound effect.

Sessions can easily be exported to MP3, WAV and other formats, giving the client a personalized, take-home solution.

Glossary

Term Definition
Biofeedback Biofeedback is a learning method based on your own body and the signals it sends to you. By “reading” your own body and mastering its messages and what it needs to improve its performance, you can become more self-aware of your moment to moment state and your options to change that state. Biofeedback is non-invasive, and can translate your body’s distinctive signals into a variety of forms – sound, visual and sensory.
Brainwave Entrainment Brainwaves represent electrical activity in the brain, and brainwave entrainment is a method of stimulating this activity using patterns of sound or light.
EEG (Electroencephalography) Electroencephalography, or EEG, is the measurement of electrical activity in the brain using electrodes placed on the scalp.
Engines Engines are mini-programs used to exert an advanced level of control over content or brainwave frequencies.
Ambience Generator The Ambience Generator arranges thousands of small audio samples to produce a unique ambient environment, such as a forest, a beach, crystal bowls or wind chimes. The best part about this type of content is that it is different every time you use it.You can make your own randomly generated soundscape, or use the presets included:
Beach, Forest, Night Sounds, Thunder Storm, Wind Chimes, Wind
