What are the ATENTIVmynd™ Games and how do they work?

At the core of the ATENTIVmynd™ Games are a products platform that enables users to enjoy a novel adventure story byby exercising specific circuit areas of their brain that strengthens attention skills, improves impulsive behavior control and helps manage distractions. Users wear a wireless AV headset that converts and sends certain brain activity from the forehead and mastoid to any Bluetooth© enabled device (i.e., iPad, laptop, or other portable device.)

When a user wears the AV headset, the ATENTIVmynd™ Games instantly determine the user’s attention state scaled 0-100%. This attention state allows the user to control the running speed of the adventure hero/heroine by pushing out of their mind multiple distractions and focusing at higher levels of attention. The better a user maintains their attention, the faster the character can run, jump, and slide to meet their challenge task. ATENTIVmynd ™ Games respond by adjusting the difficulty of the challenge tasks,, keeping the user at a continuous level of challenge throughout each of multiple adventure missions. The repeated dynamic process of varying skill challenge tasks in multiple missions over the full adventure story builds and strengthens the circuitry in the brain responsible for the thirteen cognitive skills comprising attention contol and impulse inhibition.

Is ATENTIVmynd™ Games the same as neurofeedback?

No. A neurofeedback system merely provides positive or negative information to a user (feedback) of their aggregated brain activities relative to a database of other’s brain activity to indicate to the user their relative attention levels. The user’s experience reflects targeted attention levels of others brain activity in the immediate past Neurofeedback expects that the user will learn how to regulate their future brain function by comparison. It has not demonstrated clear success, is cumbersome and delivered in a professional’s office, time consuming, expensive and does not promote adherence to complete training

The ATENTIVmynd™ Games use a different learning methodology, a feed forward modeling system that instantly calculates the user’s actual attention states to be used by the player to drive a hero/heroine through an adventure story while being challenged with multiple cognitive training tasks. The user is empowered to visualize desired future actions and encouraged and instructed by mentor and peer characters to meet the challenges tasks, learn new skills and move through the adventure story to conclusion. Training is entirely completed at home unsupervised.
