Why Train Your Brain With Muse?
You exercise to maintain your physical fitness. Now you can also improve your mental fitness with Muse: the brain sensing headband. Start your brain training routine with Muse and begin feeling the benefits of a calmer, more composed mind.
Muse motivates you to change your brain
Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice.
Muse improves how you respond to stress
In the short-term, meditation has been shown to trigger the natural relaxation response – a state of deep rest that changes the physiological and emotional responses to stress. Your metabolism decreases and your hearbeat slows. The muscles relax, breathing becomes slower, and your blood pressure decreases.
Extended use can have amazing and lasting results
A study showed that 20 minutes of meditation for 3 days in a row reduced anxiety, improved mood, and reduced heart rate. Research on longer sessions has documented other benefits, like increased grey matter density, reduced thinning of the prefrontal cortex, decreasing amygdala activity (associated with stress response), and increased resilience – basically, an overall beneficial change of the brain’s structure and function.
Muse is designed to help you form the habit
Research has shown using an app and starting with 3-5 minutes can dramatically help you build a meditation practice. Muse starts you with 3 minute sessions and rewards you for your achievements, making sure it’s easy and motivating to train with Muse (What are people saying?).
Four Steps to Train Your Brain
Begin by connecting Muse to the app on your mobile device via Bluetooth. You only need to do this once. Once paired, Muse will automatically try to link to the last device it connected to.
The first time you use Muse, you’ll be led through a simple tutorial that teaches you how to adjust the headband for a good fit and to ensure it’s reading your brain signals correctly
Your brain is different every day. To calibrate itself before each session, Muse will take a snapshot of your brain in an active state. Muse uses this snapshot as a reference to understand your brain signals. For each calibration, Muse listens to your brain signals for 60 seconds as you perform a simple brainstorming task.
Muse gives you feedback about your meditation in real time by translating your brain signals into the sounds of wind. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear calm and settled winds. When your mind is active the winds will pick up and blow.
After each session, you’ll see how you did through a series of graphs and charts. Track your progress over time and earn points to unlock new features. Muse will show you how your brain did from moment to moment through simple, easy to understand graphs and charts. View your whole session at once, find out the amount of time you remained calm during a session and get helpful tips on how to improve future scores.
Your results are saved in a private account. Use the Muse app to follow your progress over time and learn new things about your own mind. To help keep you motivated and improving, Muse also gives you points, goals, challenges and bonuses to strive for. With every session you earn points, and can adjust your goal to fit your needs.
Muse is based on focused attention-based training exercises, which have been shown to produce many benefits over time. The final step of the process is noticing the differences in your daily life. Enjoy greater composure and focus through regular sessions with Muse.
Currently, the Muse works only with android and apple devices. Software development kits are being created for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.
Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain. A labeled image of the sensors has been added to the Muse product page
