By understanding the brain’s electroencephalography (EEG), or voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain, we can better manage our operational performance and fatigue. Advanced Brain Monitoring has developed a comfortable self-applied user interface (which resembles a headband) that detects EEG signals as well as proprietary algorithms that interpret the significance of EEG signals.
Advanced Brain Monitoring is harnessing its understanding of EEG to develop applications to improve athletic performance. For instance, marksmen that use ABM’s system feel taps when their hearts beat. Thus, the Company’s closed-loop system facilitates muscle memory training. One promising application of ABM’s peak performance training initiative is to help golfers improve their game by teaching the brain to regulate swings in concert with their heartbeats.
Another interesting application of ABM’s EEG system lies in the field of managing fatigue. ABM is researching the deployment of EEG signals to determine the degree of fatigue that new pharmaceuticals present to patients. ABM is positioning itself to pre-screen employees to determine how long it takes before fatigue detracts from individual employees’ alertness and decision-making abilities.
ABM is researching utilizing its understanding of EEG to optimize napping efficiency. The intention is to develop a device which will enable users to fall asleep faster and awaken when the desired time is reached. Intelligent awakening would result in reduced sleep inertia which occurs when you feel more tired when you awake than when you went to sleep.Operational Neuroscience Applications,
