Transcend not only aids in the learning of effective meditation, but allows users to track and improve meditation practices over time by reporting the quality and duration of the user’s meditation, as well as other helpful metrics. Using these metrics, Transcend can tell when a user is successfully achieving meditative states regularly or whether a user may benefit from an alternative form of meditation. By measuring and recording meditative states, a user can track his or her progress and receive confirmation that practice is effective.
Unlike other meditation apps available today, Transcend directly measures neural activity and takes into account the different ways that people meditate. There are meditation guides for users new to the practice, or users looking to try a different style.

now user can track progress. Stores attention & meditation read into local database. These attention & meditation read can be posted into facebook personal wall or dedicated group. Please enter your read on our group "EEG reader 4 NeuroSky Mindwave"
The purpose of this app is to enable people to communicate that don't have the use of their limbs, and don't have the ability to vocalize speech. With all of the recent attention on ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), this app was written as an answer to an internal challenge to provide something with the potential to help existing and future ALS patients, as well as other people with disabilities that don't have enough manual dexterity for touch-based apps and they also don't have the ability to vocalize. Other systems that use eye-tracking are very costly by comparison to the combination of this app and an affordable NeuroSky MindWave Mobile headset.
The app can also be used to educate able-bodied people regarding certain challenges facing those with a combination of paralysis/muscle control combined with the loss of speech.
The app requires the use of a NeuroSky MindWave Mobile Bluetooth enabled headset. http://NeuroSky.com

Cognitive neuroscience shows how specific exercises to perform on a computer stimulate brain plasticity, i.e. the brain’s ability to change, at any age. Kids, young adults, and older adults can improve their mental performance if they carry out specific effective exercises. Neocogita designed a 15-exercise suite whose ability to sharpen cognitive functions has been scientifically validated. Inside the app you will find links for further information.
The most effective protocols for cognitive training show the following features. Training has to be performed when your mind is fresh, able to focus and free from external interferences, but also without any tension or effort, thus trying to relax while you’re focusing. Choose one or more exercises to train on according to the cognitive functions you would like to improve. Try to spend each day ten to thirty minutes on each exercise. A complete training on each exercise should last at least four weeks.
If you follow the recommended protocol, you will see improvements in the trained cognitive functions in just few days. A month of training brings you positive effects that can last in time, although you stop training. However, we recommend you to occasionally get back to the exercises to test you performance level and stay in practice.

Brain waves let you improve your brain with 11 different binaural beats. Alphas, betas, thetas, delta and gamma waves.
You can use these waves to relax, to meditate, to sleep or for self-hypnosis.
Gamma brain waves are used for;
-high mental activity
-Enhanced serotonin release. Mood elevation, arousal, stimulant
-migraine prevention e.t.c
-Super-learning new information, memorization, not comprehension.
-Enhanced serotonin release. Mood elevation, arousal, stimulant
- Increased focus and awareness
-third eye opening e.t.c
-Reduces sleep required. Theta replaces need for extensive dreaming
-Centre of Theta frequency. Activates creative frontal lobe
-Schumann earth resonance. Grounding, meditative, Leaves you revitalized
-Increased memory, focus, creativity
-Profound inner peace, emotional healing. Lowers mental fatigue
-NREM sleep e.t.c
-deep dreamless sleep
-Release of Anti-Aging hormones
-Related to O.O.B.E , Astral Travel, ESP, and other phenomenon
-Deepest possible level of mind / body relaxation
-Connection with unconscious mind
All these waves have frequencies ranging from 0 to 40hz, so be sure for a great experience.
NOTE: For best binaural beats perception, it is recommended that you listen with headphones plugged as binaural beats sends waves from one ear to the other.
Download now for FREE.
You can generate your own frequencies using two independent oscillators, or choose one of the four presets:
Theta, Alpha, Beta or Delta.
The sounds are produced in real time, they are not pre-recorded sounds.
This enables to play them without interruption.
Pure sinewave sounds processed in real time through your mobile device with Pure Data (libpd).
The resultant frequency is the difference between the two that have been generated in each oscillator, for example:
140Hz in Right and 145Hz in Left results in a 5Hz binaural frequency.
About Binaural Waves Frequency and Associated Mental State:
Gamma = 27 Hz and up
Gamma is associated with the formation of ideas, language and memory processing, and various types of learning. Gamma waves have been shown to disappear during deep sleep induced by anesthesia, but return with the transition back to a wakeful state.
Beta = 12hz - 27hz
Wide awake. This is generally the mental state most people are in during the day and most of their waking lives. Usually, this state in itself is uneventful, but don't underestimate its importance. Many people lack sufficient beta activity, which can cause mental or emotional disorders such as depression and insomnia. And low SMR production (a sub-range of beta at 12-15hz) may be related to insomnia. Stimulating beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attentiveness and concentration.
Alpha = 8hz - 12hz
Awake but relaxed and not processing much information. When you get up in the morning and just before sleep, you are naturally in this state. When you close your eyes your brain automatically starts producing more alpha waves.
Many studies monitoring the EEG activity of experienced meditators have revealed strong increases in alpha activity.Alpha activity has also been connected to the ability to recall memories, lessened discomfort and pain, and reductions in stress and anxiety.
Theta = 3hz - 8hz
Light sleep or extreme relaxation.
Theta is also a very receptive mental state that has proven useful for hypnotherapy, as well as self-hypnosis using recorded affirmations and suggestions.
Delta = 0.2hz - 3hz
Deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the slowest band of brainwaves. When your dominant brainwave is delta, your body is healing itself and "resetting" its internal clocks. You do not dream in this state and are completely unconscious.
For best result please use headphones.
Take care of your hearing, is not necessary to hear these sounds at high volume.

Exercise is a powerful tool for enhancing mental performance and cognitive health. Whether you want to improve your general brain health and memory, enhance your problem solving abilities, reduce your risk of Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, or bend metal and shoot lasers with your mind – exercise has an important role to play in all but two of those activities. In particular, richer fitness regimens – regimens consisting of aerobic and resistance training methods, produce the greatest overall improvements in cognitive performance and neurochemical brain processes. Note, however, working out for sixteen hours each day won’t turn you into the next Stephen Hawking. There are diminishing returns, and the favorable cerebral environment promoted by exercise is only as good as the active learning that accompanies it.
In the same way that exercise has been found to improve a wide range of general health conditions, so too does it have wide and positive impacts across the brain. Its effects extend across vascular, metabolic, inflammatory  and stress-regulating pathways as they exist in the brain. Exercise has been shown to enhance neuronal metabolic and mitochondrial functioning, decrease oxidative stress in the hippocampus, and increase mitochondrial machinery. Another way of saying this: working out helps improve the power supply, the work environment and workers themselves in neuronal ‘train stations.’ On the other end, stress, and chronic stress in particular, has been linked to impaired functioning of, and indeed damage to, the hippocampus. Exercise has shown favorable benefits in the regulation of stress (and in particular the management of corticosteroid processes – e.g. cortisol), and may also favorably affect hippocampal memory systems through this process (also potentially leading to improvements in mood and attention if not intelligence).
More specific to the process of memory formation and the underlying neuronal structure, exercise has been found to increase levels of hippocampal neurotrophins. Neurotrophins are a class of growth factors centrally important in the development and health of neurons. In particular, increases in a neurotrophin called brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) have been linked to neurogenesis (the creation of new neurons) and improved synaptic plasticity , producing substantial improvements in memory. In turn, exercise has been found to up-regulate levels of hippocampal BDNF- and much of its impact on memory appears to stem from this process. To make a wild analogy and a gross, but potentially useful, simplification – BDNF is to neurogenesis as testosterone is to muscle growth.
Insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) is another compound which has been found to enhance neurogenesis and plasticity processes, and it is similarly upregulated through working out. Not only does strenuous physical activity lead to positive increases in these compounds, but it can also help regulate hormones which indirectly support them. Active fitness workouts have been shown to help maintain levels of testosterone and estrogen, which have also been shown to help favorably regulate levels of neurotrophins and neurogenesis . Taken together, the neuronal and synaptic plasticity promoted by these compounds ultimately work to facilitate some of the basic processes of cognition, learning and memory formation such as Long Term Potentiation, or ‘LTP. Exercise appears to have has favorable effects on LTP , most likely mediated by its positive effects on synaptic plasticity generally.

Binaural beats, or binaural tones, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli.
Binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and provide other health benefits such as control over pain.
Binaural Beats were discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove, and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims that binaural beats help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states.
The effect on the brainwaves depends on the difference in frequencies of each tone, for example, if 300 Hz was played in one ear and 310 in the other, then the Binaural beat would have a frequency of 10 Hz. See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats
So Binaural Beats and Relaxation can help you to induce relaxation, sleep, creativity and many other desirable mental states.

Boost Lite is based on audio-visual brainwave entrainment (AVE), a technique that's been used in research and healthcare for decades to manipulate brainwaves. Boost Light can use this technique to increase your brain's processing speed and memory capability, without any additional hardware.
HOW BOOST LITE WORKS
During normal wakefulness, the human brain generates electrical waves at a rate of 8-12 oscillations per second. The speed of these waves is associated with cognitive performance and declines with age starting in young adulthood.
Boost Light manipulates these waves by providing synchronized "pulses" of light and sound which encourage neurons to fire at a higher frequency than they normally do, temporarily reversing the decline in processing speed that occurs as a part of normal aging.
While many binaural beat and brainwave entrainment apps rely on speculation about the effects of a stimulation protocol, the audio-visual entrainment technology used in Boost Lite is an implementation of a protocol previously demonstrated to cause large increases in alpha frequency (http://www.amadeux.net/sublimen/documenti/REF_researchnote.pdf). Boost Light is also unique in that it can use your phone's camera light to deliver pulses, allowing for high-intensity pulses comparable to those used in research.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOOST AND BOOST LITE?
Boost is an application developed by Neurelectrics which uses a combination of audio-visual entrainment and neurofeedback from a Neurosky Mindwave headset. Boost Lite includes only the AVE component of Boost, and can be used without a headset.
HOW LONG DOES BOOST LITE TAKE TO WORK?
In general, Boost Lite sessions should be 5 to 15 minutes long. Increases in alpha frequency and cognitive clarity are typically observed within 30 minutes after the end of the session and last 3-4 hours.
WHO CAN USE BOOST LITE?
Boost is designed for cognitive enhancement in healthy people. While Boost technology is very safe for most people, it should not be used by individuals with epilepsy or seizures. Boost should not be used to treat any disease or neurological/mental health condition.
