Happi Focus Trainer

Study Shows That the Neureka! Feedback Used in the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer and
Happi Focus Trainer is Related to Positive Experiences

This pioneering three-part study shows that brainwave signals associated with feelings of happiness, love, satisfaction, gratitude, full awareness, mindfulness, peace, and the absence of stress can now be measured. The study also showed that Transcendental Meditators™ with over 10 years experience could enhance this brainwave pattern associated with good feelings much more powerfully than subjects who did not meditate, although both groups learned to increase this pattern in just one session. The study established that the Neureka! brainwave biofeedback protocol, which is used in the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer Pro, is able to give users instantaneous, clear information about these brainwaves related to these positive feelings.

Both meditators and controls were first asked to try to observe the Neureka! feedback without knowing anything about it, and to tell Dr. Rubik what it felt like when it was high.  This is what they said:

“Detachment from myself; trust in something bigger.

Letting something higher come into my consciousness; not trying from the ego

Joy; bliss; connection with the angelic realm

Alert; focused on something new; being in the moment

Warmth from my heart chakra and the bottom of my feet; thinking of people I love, including love for those who have passed on

Curiosity; enthusiasm; joy; novelty of experience 

Love; compassion; anger; surge of joy

Concern for others; romantic feelings; receptive to loving touch; opposite of trauma and grief

Relaxed; feeling good; having a good time; happy inner laughter; opposite of anxiety

Joy; clairvoyance; loving feeling; meditative bliss; trying doesn’t get me there; preparing for the state doesn’t always make it happen

Open heart chakra; relaxed and calm; receptive; warm fuzzy feeling; feels close to the center of the brain

Pure love; childlike wonder; anticipation of something new and good; thinking higher thoughts; a core connection to the Absolute; the opposite of stress”

Next, they were asked to create particular positive and negative experiences by following a description for two minutes each, while they were looking at the Neureka! feedback signal, and to rate the relationship between momentary changes in the experience and the Neureka! measure along a -100 to +100 scale, with 0 representing no relationship, 20 a mild relationship, 40 a moderate association, 60 a strong one, 80 a very strong relationship, and 100 an extremely strong connection. Eleven of the 16 adjectives showed very strong positive relationships.

There were no differences in these relationships between meditators and controls.

On the negative side, 0 to -100, there were three adjectives that were strongly related to the Neureka! measurement.

Finally, she found that the meditators were far better able to reach the Neureka! state quickly upon request, indicating that practicing Transcendental Meditation™ prepared them to have these positive experiences.

The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer is the first instrument that can teach users to directly enhance these very powerful feelings by increasing the brainwave output from the Prefrontal Pleasure Center, a part of the brain’s pleasure system mediated by the neuromodulator, dopamine. The training begins by showing the user a very pleasant DVD, and then putting the DVD under the control of the user’s Neureka! brainwaves. As the user becomes happier and the Neureka! output increases, the picture gets larger. The user soon begins to understand how to create the feelings that are necessary to keep the picture larger—directly, without the use of words or thoughts.
The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer also includes several MeditAider Protocols, designed to help those who are having trouble meditating to keep calm and focused, and to enhance their Neureka! levels.
Dr. Beverly Rubik, the President of the Institute for Frontier Sciences, who conducted the study states, “From numerous studies in mind-body science and medicine, we know that happiness is a root cause of good health. Now you can choose to engage your brain in the Neureka! experience using the Peak Brain Happiness Trainer to elevate yourself mentally and physically.”

Dr. Rubik holds a Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of California at Berkeley. She has published over 80 papers and 2 books.  At the time, she was an Adjunct Professor in Integrative Health at California Institute of Integral Studies; Adjunct Faculty Member in Integrative Health at Saybrook Graduate School; and a holistic health practitioner to clients at Health Medicine Center in Walnut Creek.
