What is this system?
The Brain Music System (BMS) is a standard course of Sonified Neurofeedback therapy, tailored specifically to individual patients. By connecting AAT Research’s CE Medical and FDA registered “MENTe” EEG device, the BMS analyzes the components of an EEG output from a user and then converts these waves into music used for therapy.
How does the system work?
The MENTe headband picks up minute brainwaves emitted by the brain. The brainwaves are transmitted to the device and the BMS interprets the waves, processes them and converts them into musical sounds. These musical sounds are then played back to the user through headphones.
