Biofeedback is a process by which participants must generate the targeted brainwave with no outside stimulation.

Biofeed-in is another term used to describe how the entrainment process of light and sound stimulation is performed. The opposite of biofeedback.

Brainwaves are the electrical wave patterns generated by our brain. Our brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons that function by generating and passing these electrical signals. The sum of all these electrical signals and their activity can be recorded and observed via an EEG instrument. These brain waves appear as irregular yet repetitive “wavy lines” that are a mixture of frequencies ranging from below 1Hz to more than 40Hz. The predominance of a certain brain wave frequency is what determines what brain state or state of awareness an individual is experiencing at any given moment. Brain waves are the voltage patterns generated by the brain. The brain contains some 100 billion neurons which operate by generating and passing electrical signals. The summation of all this electrical activity results in signals that can be detected and recorded outside the brain. Different brain wave patterns have been found to be associated with different states of awareness.

Cautions when used as a medical disclaimer: For individuals, AVS / light and sound stimulation has been proven to be extremely save and effective. However, whether knowingly or not, there are a small percentage of individuals with undiagnosed photosensitive epilepsy who experience their first seizure when exposed to pulsing light. Flashing traffic lights, video games, emergency vehicle lights, and entertainment strobe lights have all initiated seizures in such individuals. Therefore, if you experience any uneasiness or nausea during your first light and sound experience, take off the glasses immediately and stop your light and sound session. Consult your physician for a diagnosis and proper medical prevention. Also, seek your doctor’s supervision before using a light and sound device if you: have ever experienced any form of seizure disorder or epilepsy; have ever suffered any type of head injury or concussion; are presently or have recently taken prescription or illegal psychoactive drugs, such as barbiturates, tranquilizers, or stimulants of any type; are sensitive to bright or pulsing light, or find that such light can produce headaches or other discomforts; have a pacemaker or suffer from any form of cardiovascular problems including cardiac arrhythmia’s or other heart disorders; have a history of mental disorders and/or hallucinations; suffer from any major health problem. No medical claims are made for using light and sound products. Do not use a light/sound machine to try to heal yourself. They are a powerful self-improvement tool and can help you achieve deep states of relaxation, but they can in no way replace the knowledge and expertise your physician or other health care professional provides.

AVS Journal is the only free downloadable magazine devoted to current mind machine / AVS (Auditory / Visual Stimulation) research, utilization and product information. AVS is also referred to as light and sound stimulation. The AVS Journal contains current mind machine information geared towards personal as well as professional use. Visit www.AVSJournal.com or www.Mindmachines.com for articles.

Beats are amplitude variations that result when pure tones spaced close together in pitch are mixed. When tone pitches are far enough apart, the result of mixing tones is consonance (sounds okay). As the mixed tones get within an octave of each other, they sound good only if the tones form good chords. When they get still closer, the effect shifts to beats. A trigonometric formula, long since forgotten by many, expresses the addition of two pure tones as:

sin(a) + sin(b) = 2*(sin((a+b)/2)*cos((a-b)/2))

Interpreting the formula, beats are perceived as the average pitch (a+b)/2 modulated (pulsed) at the difference frequency (a-b). If you are paying close attention and noticed the disappearing 1/2, cos(a-b)/2 has two amplitude peaks per cycle, so the modulation is perceived to be at frequency (a-b) not (a-b)/2. When you listen to a mixture of slowly changing tones on a dual binaural beat instrument, fascinating beat effects are heard.

Beta brainwave frequencies are associated with are normal waking state. Beta frequencies range between 13-34Hz.

Binaural beats result when pure tones at different beats are simultaneously heard by both ears. For instance, say one tone of 200Hz is heard predominantly by the left ear. Another tone of 190Hz is heard predominantly through the right ear. These two pure tones are heard and processed separately, depending upon their arrival time, by our auditory center. If these two tones are of the same pitch, the resulting sound will be perceived as being inside our head. But if both tones have slightly different pitches, the resulting effect will sound more like a back and forth movement. Binaural beats result when pure tones at slightly different pitches are heard by the two ears. The effect is different from a mixed tone beat phenomenon, because the tones are heard and processed separately by the auditory apparatus. Our mechanism for localizing the source of a sound depends on detecting differences of arrival times of the sound waveform — two tones of the same pitch but at different phases will be perceived as being inside the head, closer to the ear in which the sine wave peaks first. Tones of slightly different pitches appear to have constantly shifting phase, and the source appears to move back and forth within the head at the rate of the difference of the pitches. This is commonly but inaccurately described as “hearing the difference frequency”. You can experiment with this effect with a light and sound machine that generates controlled sine wave binaural beats.

AudioStrobe signals are recorded on a music CD at a high, inaudible frequency, to control the lights in a light and sound machine. An AudioStrobe decoder detects these signals and uses them to drive the lights of the lightframe’s LEDs, absolutely in sync with the music.

AV3X The Digital Meditation® Experience. You will become deeply relaxed when you watch AV3X®. The original TV Mind Machine and most powerful Meditation DVD to be created. AV3x® Digital Meditation® DVD Videos will have you feeling deep relaxation within minutes. We all know how beneficial meditation is for us, but let’s face it, most of us don’t have time to learn how to meditate. AV3X® Digital Meditation DVDs are not “how to meditate” videos. You do not need to learn how to do anything. All you need to do is to watch the DVD on your TV set. Created in it’s entirety by Christopher Oliver.

AVS (Audio Visual Stimulation) devices influence your state of mind using specially designed light and sound stimulation. Also referred to as light and sound or mind machines. Flickering lights and pulsating sound have been used for centuries to influence moods, from music for relaxation to adrenaline-raising dances around the tribal fire. AVS systems have the advantage that the stimulation is more controlled and better designed for its purpose. They are very effective relaxation tools, assist in meditation and can aid the learning process.

Activation frequencies are used in session design to “turn on” or guide the participant to specific states of awareness, as in beta, alpha, theta, delta.

ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has identified and defined this disorder. According to the American Psychiatric Association (1980), ADD is indicated when children display inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and sometimes hyperactivity for their mental and chronological age. ADD may be diagnosed as with or without hyperactivity. Approximately 20% of the population will be diagnosed as having ADD.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a behavioral condition in which children have difficulties paying attention and focusing on tasks. This common disorder begins in early childhood and can continue into adulthood. If not recognized and treated, it can cause problems at home, in school, at work and with relationships.
