BrainAvatar uses the latest cutting edge technology and features which is the next generation of EEG and neurofeedback software. It provides a new standard of excellence and will become the new standard for comparison for the future of the field. It combines all existing BrainMaster capabilities with new features incorporating quantitative EEG (QEEG), peripheral modalities, and integrating assessment with training in a seamless system.
BrainMaster’s electroencephalographic system has a resolution of 5 millimeters, as opposed to a typical functional MRI’s resolution of 2 mm. It has a response time of 30 milliseconds, as opposed to a response of up to 10 seconds of MRI systems.
The technology behind Brain-Avatar allows it to measure in real time actual brain electrical activity, whereas other imaging techniques offer only structural or metabolic images. In turn, the system “has significant new value for neurology, psychiatry, mental health assessment and treatment, consumer research, sports, art, peak performance and optimal functioning.” Currently, the system most often is used by psychologists to examine, assess and treat patients, said BrainMaster president Tom Collura. “We see this invention opening new markets and uses, and changing the face of mental health care due to its extraordinary speed and accuracy, economy and potential importance.”
