Dr. Cade -
Research conducted in London by psychobiologist Maxwell Cade, a member of the Royal Society of Medicine, gave a scientific basis for meditation and made possible the development of neurofeedback. In the 1970s Dr. Cade has created his own EEG-

By comparing the brains of meditators with a control group, a difference in five areas of the brain was found*. In four of them, there was an increase of volume:
1. The primary difference, we found in the posterior cingulate, which is involved in mind wandering, and self relevance.
2. The left hippocampus, which assists in learning, cognition, memory and emotional regulation.
3. The temporo parietal junction, or TPJ, which is associated with perspective taking, empathy and compassion.
4. An area of the brain stem called the Pons, where a lot of regulatory neurotransmitters are produced.
The amygdala, the fight or flight part of the brain which is important for anxiety, fear and stress in general, it got smaller in the group that went through the mindfulness-
The harmful effects of stress on the brain are known since 1991, caused mainly by cortisol and adrenaline. These stress-
Chronic stress can also shrink the medial prefrontal cortex*. This negatively affects decision-
These brain alterations can have significant consequences on the way we interact with others, our ability to learn, remember, make decisions and accomplish long-
Neurofeedback and Brain Training -
Dr. Cade, after more than 4,500 recorded electroencephalograms, could identify the Alpha state as the core of meditation. When one measures brain waves of a person who is in this meditative state, but mentally focused, the monitor shows a slow Alpha wave around 7 Hz.
In the book The Awakened Mind, Dr. Cade concludes "To achieve an Alpha frequency of 9 Hz requires two to five years of meditation experience. With ten to twenty years of practice, we find the Alpha frequency around 7 Hz." This conclusion is reinforced by the research of Michael Hutchison, who states that "Only those Zen monks who have meditated for more than 20 years are able to enter the Alpha (7Hz) -
Brainwave II achieves within days what has previously been believed to require 10 to 20 years.
The Brainwave Station is composed of an EEG-
The basic process follows these steps, always with EEG analysis in real time:
1. Initially we record an EEG while the client performs a 4-
2. After the analysis of this reading we choose (or draws) an optical-
3. It is again performed the 4 minute test (step 1 above).
4. Now with three EEG readings available for analysis we prepare activities and the training to be done with the help of optical-
In five days 100% of our clients can:
Go to Alpha and Theta states immediately at will
Keep these states for as long as they wish
Completely eliminate stress on professional and personal environments
Operate easily the Brainwave station and its software
In addition, according to the case of each client, a number of other demands can be achieved, such as ADHD and Dyslexia solution, increased academic or art performance, disorders resulting from birth problems, solution of fibromyalgia and reduction of symptoms related to autism spectrum.
After the course, the customer relies on the ongoing remote supervision from the Alphalearning International for as long as necessary to master EEGs readings and operate with confidence the neurofeedback and optical-
