We’re really excited to be working with BrainTap on this study. We want to give our students resources to help them balance their busy lives and BrainTap’s entrainment technology has the potential to make a real difference.

BrainTap®, the leading enhanced meditation company, is launching a new study in collaboration with Seminole State College of Florida to evaluate the emotional and physical effects of Brainwave Entrainment on the 2019 NJCAA champion women’s golf team. This study will allow further insight into the overall influence of BrainTap technology on college athletes, as well as how it affects the everyday user.

Brainwave entrainment was first discovered in 1934 and refers to the use of rhythmic auditory and visual stimuli to induce a desired state of mind. The digital revolution has vastly expanded entrainment possibilities and has created a growing demand for research in this area.

The study is being conducted using the BrainTap headset, a consumer digital wellness device designed to help users find improved clarity, quality sleep, and more energy. BrainTap uses a proprietary audio/visual algorithm to enable more relaxed brainwave states, contributing to health and wellness improvements.

“We’re really excited to be working with BrainTap on this study,” said Dr. Geraldine L. Perez Director, Disability Support Services at Seminole State College. “We want to give our students resources to help them balance their busy lives and BrainTap’s entrainment technology has the potential to make a real difference.”

The study continues a trend of research conducted by BrainTap, which earlier this year presented two studies at the prestigious International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health. The first was conducted at the Laboratory of Experimental Neuroscience - University of South Santa Catarina and found that audio-visual brain entrainment significantly increased quality of sleep amongst university students; the second showed that a single audio-visual brain entrainment session with the BrainTap Headset could significantly influence heart rate variability, parasympathetic activity, and decrease stress.

“What makes BrainTap so effective is the powerful science at the heart of the technology. We’re committed to incorporating the latest science and research in improving our products,” said lead researcher Dr. Francisco Cidral, ND, PhD. “This current study is part of our ongoing effort to provide valid methodology and controlled clinical evidence evaluating the effects of this non-invasive approach to enhancing performance and ultimately changing lives.”

BrainTap® is the leader in enhanced meditation. Its products bring improved clarity, quality sleep, and more energy to users around the world. More than 3 million sessions have been played and BrainTap is trusted by over 2300 healthcare professionals. Based on the extensive work of Dr. Patrick Porter, PhD, BrainTap recently released a consumer-grade mobile application - BrainTap Pro - to advance its mission to better a billion brains. BrainTap offers over 1000 original audio sessions in 12 languages within its mobile app. The company also offers an optional, patent-pending headset. BrainTap has been featured in Bloomberg Businessweek, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Fortune, Health, Inc., People, The Wall Street Journal and on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX.
