Brain.fm’s focus music is made to help you work better, by blending into the background so you can focus distraction-free... all while stimulating the brain with gentle rhythmic pulses in the music that support sustained attention.
Other music is made to grab your attention, making it hard to think and work, even if you don’t realize it. Brain.fm’s functional music is designed from the bottom up to affect your brain and optimize your performance.
Brain.fm holds patents on key processes for creating functional music, including technology to elicit strong neural phase locking — allowing populations of neurons to engage in various kinds of coordinated activity.
This means Brain.fm music is purpose-built to guide your brain into your desired mental state, every time.
Scientists at Brain.fm work with collaborators at academic institutions to run experiments, looking at the effects of our technology on the brain using fMRI and EEG. We also run large-scale behavioral tests, measuring performance on simple games.
At Brain.fm, we draw on neuroscience and psychology to develop hypotheses about how to make the best music—to help us study, to push us in a workout, to get us to sleep. Then, we create and test these sounds on a massive scale, to find out what works.
We run experiments looking at performance and brain activity to ensure that it works, and we always use ‘placebo’ control groups, so we can be sure our tech is what makes the difference.
