Muse the brain sensing headband is a brain fitness tool that measures brain signals much like a heart rate monitor senses your heartbeat. Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.
How it Works
What does it Measure ?
The most well-known frequency band is the so-called Alpha wave, which includes frequencies from 8-12Hz. People exhibit the strongest Alpha waves when they relax with their eyes closed. As another example, the brain emits ‘Delta’ waves (0-4Hz) when we sleep . Muse looks at the balance of these frequency bands in your brain, and how that balance changes over time. It’s these changes in your brain that identify when your mind is calm and focused, and when it is wandering .
