The brain produces brainwaves for everything it does. Research shows when we feel good feelings such as happiness and love, the brain produces brainwaves around 40 cycles per second, which the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer processes to create Neureka!. A special protocol in the Trainer reads the raw brainwave information from the sensors on the person’s head and shows the level of Neureka! on the PC screen. New studies show a person can learn to increase the amount of the Neureka! produced by the brain. The more Neureka! they produce, the more good feelings, like happy, loving and grateful, they feel. See the researcher, Dr. Rubik, speak on training Neureka! 40 Hertz here.
All of the subjects used very positive words to describe what it felt like to be at higher Neureka! levels. There were some fascinating descriptions, all but one very positive. They used words such as: love, compassion and joy.
Dr. Estate Sokhadze carried out this study at the University of Louisville. The subjects watched DVD’s with beautiful scenes from the BBC series, Planet Earth, during their training sessions. When they raised their Neureka! values, the size of the DVD picture on the PC screen grew at the same time. The researchers asked the subjects to make the picture grow as much as possible. All of the subjects learned to raise their Neureka! values.
The study included another test called the Beck Depression Inventory, a very well known and accepted measure of depressed mood. The subjects improved their scores by an average of 35%, showing that they felt better. This is not about the serious condition called clinical depression, which has to be diagnosed by a professional.
The results of this study may also indicate that Neureka! training with the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer can improve long-term health. We used the same question about happiness that they did in the HILDA study, and showed major improvements. Health and happiness seem to be connected. For example, there are studies connecting heart disease and immune system function to the level of happiness. This could mean that people who become happier after our training may also become healthier.
