How and why the brain gets wonky
Hear a clear explanation of just what the common brain dysfunctions are
The ALERT is the result of 20 years of research, including clinical testing in private schools. The device was developed by school psychologist Michael Joyce and David Siever of Mind Alive Inc. Joyce & Siever (2001) conducted two clinical studies using light and sound machines to reduce ADHD in elementary school children.
The studies showed that specifically-designed light and sound machines reduced ADHD behaviors, such as impulsiveness, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity. Also, the light and sound machines improved the children’s reading scores, which reflects an improvement in their ability to concentrate, focus, and retain information.
Subsequent studies show that the Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) enables adults, teeenagers and children to conquer ADHD by boosting neurotransmitters in the brain (dopamine) and normalizing brainwaves that are sluggish or hyperactive. The SMR also stimulates, conditions and excercises the sleepy ADHD brain, and boosts arousal levels.
