The audio technology, embedded on a CD beneath the sounds of rain, uses our proprietary harmonically layered binaural frequencies to guide your mind into a highly focused and attentive mental state that is extremely conducive to higher-level thinking. Using the CDs in the Focus 2-Disc Set, you can easily and effortlessly attain a state of intense clarity, enhanced concentration, and superior focus.
The Focus CDs swiftly ease your mind into a highly focused brainwave state that will take your mental processing to new levels. Each time you listen, the audio technology will work to stimulate your brain while in this highly focused state, triggering neural pathways to fire, enhancing communication between various parts of the brain and bringing your brain into a state of hemispheric synchronization. Research has indicated that this same state of brain synchronization is consistently found in the brainwave patterns of highly intelligent, creative and successful individuals.
By listening to the Focus CDs while reading, studying, or working, you can dramatically improve your levels of concentration and clarity, significantly increase your memory retention, and enhance your mental functioning.
The Focus collection is comprised of two discs. Each disc works in a unique way to enhance your focus, clarity, attention, and concentration for a variety of situations.
The tracks are designed with long running times (ranging from 22 to 72 minutes) in case you would like to read, work, study, or exercise for a long period of time, but you do not need to listen to a track in its entirety to obtain the benefits. You may listen to only a portion of the track if you'd like. The frequencies were also arranged with continuous peaks to keep you as focused as possible if you need to concentrate for long stretches of time.
Disc 1 contains one 72-minute track titled Clarity.
Clarity is intended for listening in situations that require relaxed concentration, such as reading or engaging in a hobby. Clarity may also be used during an exercise session 'while jogging, for example' to assist you in achieving the "zone" described by many athletes. Clarity utilizes the Alpha brainwave state.
Disc 2 contains two separate tracks:
The first track, titled Focus, is a 50-minute track intended for listening while performing tasks that require heightened attention, such as working, studying, or any situation requiring specific attention to detail. Focus utilizes the Beta brainwave state. The second track, titled Envision, is a 22-minute track to be used whenever a creativity boost is needed. Envision may also be used for quick problem-solving and brainstorming sessions in order to trigger creative and innovative solutions. Envision utilizes the Theta brainwave state.
Both the Clarity and the Focus tracks may be used to trigger enhanced mental processing and higher-level thinking. Several research studies have proven the effectiveness of using Alpha and Beta brainwave states to enhance mental performance.
Binaural audio has been used in the classroom to enhance learning ability. Under the direction of psychologist Devon Edrington, students taking an Introductory Psychology course used audio tapes containing binaural beat technology to influence learning ability. The study found that students who were taught, studied, and took tests while listening to the binaural audio tapes did significantly better than a control group not using the tapes. Students using binaural audio tapes scored, on average, approximately ten points higher than students not using the tapes. (Edrington, D., 1984, A Palliative for Wandering Attention, research paper.)
In studies conducted by Harold Russell, Ph.D., and his associate, John Carter, training of the brain hemispheres of students was found to significantly improve the students' performance scores on the WAIS I.Q. test. In a 1984 Megabrain Report, Dr. Gene Brockopp reported that "coherence of high frequency EEG (brainwave) patterns is apparently related to increased intellectual functioning."
Research indicates that brainwave audio technology can improve concentration and help fight memory loss.
The Focus 2-Disc Set may be used by adults or children with ADD or ADHD to improve levels of concentration and clarity, offering a drug-free alternative to enhance attention and cognitive functioning. In the past two decades, several research studies have proven the effectiveness of binaural audio in increasing attention, improving concentration and focusing skills, and treating ADD.
In 1991, at the annual meeting of the Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, Harold Russell, Ph.D., presented research showing that Beta frequencies improved the cognitive functioning of children with ADD. In addition, the results of a 1997 study conducted by the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center indicated binaural audio is effective in increasing cognitive performance. The study reported that "binaural auditory stimulation can affect both the task performance and changes in mood associated with the taskâ€¦Binaural beats in the Beta frequency range were associated with improvements." (Lane, Kasian, Owens, Marsh; 1998, Binaural Auditory Beats Affect Vigilance, Performance, and Mood; Physiology & Behavior, Vol 63, No. 2)
The track called Focus on Disc 2 of the Focus set swiftly eases your mind into a highly focused Beta state. The CDs can be used while reading, studying, working, or even exercising.
The Focus 2-Disc Set may also be used for long-term mental enhancement in the prevention of mentally debilitative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease. Robert Cosgrove, Jr., Ph.D., M.D., an authority in biomedical engineering, noted that technologies that alter brainwave patterns "have been observed by us to be an excellent neuropathway exerciser." Dr. Cosgrove went on to say "As such, we believe it has great potential for use in promoting optimal cerebral performance...Furthermore, the long-term effects on maintaining and improving cerebral performance throughout life and possibly delaying for decades the deterioration of the brain traditionally associated with aging is very exciting."
