Available for download after purchase
By the end of 2012, there were about 50 clinical studies supporting the effectiveness of audio-visual entrainment (AVE).
An advantage of AVE is that it affects cerebral blood flow, neurotransmitters, dissociative/meditative states and brainwave activity. AVE is easy to use and boosts cognition. Students using AVE show increased GPA, concentration, memory and reduced worry. ADD/ADHD children or adults and with seniors with cognitive decline also benefit from using AVE. Other applications of AVE include deep relaxation, hypnotic induction, PMS, SAD, PTSD, migraine headache, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:
- Understand neuronal dysarousal in terms of cerebral blood flow, over-arousal, brain waves and neurotransmitters.
- Understand how AVE counteracts the components of dysarousal.
- Review the clinical research.
- Learn how to apply the various protocols for various cognitive and emotional maladies.
Prerequisites: None. Advance preparation is not required.
Dave Siever graduated in 1978 as an engineering technologist. He later worked in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Alberta designing TMJ Dysfunction related diagnostic equipment and research facilities. He organized research projects, taught basic physiology and the advanced TMJ diagnostics course. Dave had noted anxiety issues in many patients suffering with TMJ dysfunction, prompting him to study biofeedback, which he applied to their patients and later design biofeedback devices.
In 1984, Dave designed his first audio-visual entrainment (AVE) device the Digital Audio-visual Integration Device, or DAVID1. Since this time, through his company, Mind Alive Inc., Dave has been researching and refining AVE technology since, specifically for use in relaxation, boosting academic performance and treating anxiety, depression, PMS, ADD, FMS, SAD, pain, cognitive decline and insomnia, which he presents at conferences and for special interest groups. Dave also designs Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) products and is a leading provider of transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS) and biofeedback devices. Dave continues to conduct research and designs new products relating to personal growth and wellness.
