Outside the Head Thinking: A Novel Approach for Detecting Human Brain Cognition

Researcher: Insoo Kim, Samsung Research America, Richardson, TX, USA
We are proud to reveal that our sister company, Freer Logic, who develops BodyWave technology, has been secretly working with the Korean electronics giant, Samsung. Dr. Insoo Kim, head of Samsung Research America, and his colleagues, performed validation studies on BodyWave pitted against a clinical 8 channel EEG device. The tests examined the correlation between attention and relaxation between both instruments. The 8 channel EEG device correlated with a score of 91% using all eight channels. The BodyWave device scored 84% using a single channel on the low forearm away from the brain! Even more significantly, when he 8 channel device was examined channel by channel, it...

The journal Pediatrics (PEDIATRICS Volume 133, Number 3, March 2014)

This peer reviewed journal discusses a six month follow up review of a study performed on Play Attention by the prestigious  Tufts School of Medicine in the Boston Public Schools. Play Attention is termed “Neurofeedback” in the article. The researchers found that, ” Neurofeedback  participants made more prompt and greater improvements in ADHD symptoms, which were sustained at the 6-month follow-up, than did CT participants or those in the control group. This finding suggests that...

NASA Spinoff Magazine – 2013

The inspiration for this attention-training game, one of many specialized software programs available under the company’s Play Attention educational product line, began with NASA Langley Research Center scientist Alan Pope’s research in the late 1980s on pilots and automated flight systems.

Journal of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics – January 2014

This peer reviewed journal article reviews the randomized clinically controlled study of Play Attention completed by Tufts School of Medicine in the Boston Public Schools.  The results are very impressive and validate Play Attention’s efficacy.

Students enrolled were randomly selected to participate in either Play Attention (referred to in study as Neurofeedback or NF); or a computer based cognitive training system (referred to as CT); or no intervention. 

Results:  Parents of...

Time Magazine – 11/14/2011

Not long ago, a manager at the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) nuclear plant outside Toronto was completing a routine drill. The manager had to demonstrate that he could accurately instruct a computer to open and close a series of simulated valves–valves crucial to controlling the water and pressure that keep radioactive material contained. But this particular demonstration was unusual, since Lanzanin was operating the valves with his mind. He never touched a keyboard. And when his brain was...
