EEG Brain RESPONSE
Our EEG active brain scan currently measures 6 different cognitive states in real time excitement (arousal), interest (valence), stress (frustration), engagement/boredom, attention (focus) and meditation (relaxation). By analyzing the EEG brain waves in a variety of ways we are more closely able to determine a state of brain calmness versus a brain state of high chaos.
Why would you do this test? EEG brain scans may be used in many aspects with regards to athletic sports performance and competition. The brain waves emitted during different emotions have specific wave patterns that can be measured and tracked. If an athlete is too nervous before a big competition they may experience a brain state of chaos which will most likely reveal itself in competition as a lack of concentration or focus. This will lead to mistakes during the event because their mind is overloaded with signals.
Who is this test recommended for? The EEG brain scan response testing is recommended for all athletes 10 years old and older regardless of the sport in which they compete.
How often should you repeat this test? We recommend at least 1 scan per year and additional scans should be performed on an as needed basis. For example when an athlete has trouble focusing.
Which body parts are or can be tested? The brain is tested during this scan.
What are the results of this test? The results of the EEG brain scan response will fall into several categories from a status of calm to high chaos.
What does this help to improve? The goal of an EEG brain scan response analysis is to help athletes identify what the feeling of calmness in the brain should feel like or the feeling of mental focus. When they can see the response from their brain and associate it with a feeling, the connection begins to get stronger.
