Frequently asked questions

How To Use Brainfm AI?

Step 01 - Upon your initial login to the app, you'll be prompted to choose a "mode": Focus, Relax, Sleep, or Meditate. (After using Brain.fm for some time, the home page will include shortcuts to frequently used app settings, allowing you to skip the rest of the instructions.)

Step 02 - Once you've selected your mode or mood, you can specify the duration of your session and the type of activity you plan to engage in.

For Focus, you can choose from options like deep work, creative flow, study & reading, and light work.
In the Relax mode, options include chill, recharge, destress, and unwind.
For Sleep, you can select deep sleep music, guided sleep assistance, sleep & wake cycle, or wind down.
Meditate offers choices between unguided or guided meditation.

Step 03 - At this stage, your focus session will commence, but you can further customize settings.

Step 04 - You have the flexibility to adjust the timer at any moment, including activating "infinite" mode to remove time constraints.

Step 05 - The app allows you to fine-tune the music genre, offering a variety of styles (acoustic, cinematic, electronic, piano, post-rock) and environmental sounds (beach, forest, rain, river, thunder, wind).

Step 06 - You can also modify the neural effect, lowering it if you're sensitive to auditory stimuli or increasing it if you have ADHD (a setting I commonly use while working).

That covers the essentials of using the app! You can also enable push notifications for reminders, though I haven't personally tested them. The only feature I wish it had, but unfortunately does not, is deeper integration with iOS and MacOS functionalities. It would be fantastic to use Brain.fm with home screen widgets, Shortcuts, and Apple's own Focus Modes.

What makes Brainfm AI effective in enhancing focus?

Brainwaves vary in speed (measured in Hz), and scientists typically categorize them into four groups, each linked to specific mental states:

  1. ** Delta (0.5-4 Hz): Associated with deep sleep
  2. ** Theta (4-8 Hz): Linked to light sleep and deep relaxation
  3. ** Alpha (8-12 Hz): Corresponds to relaxed wakefulness, creativity, and meditation
  4. ** Beta (12-30 Hz): Tied to active thinking, problem-solving, and focus

Brainfm Ai approach involves pinpointing the ideal Hz range for a desired mental state and incorporating this into volume fluctuations within certain segments of our music. This method prompts your brain to amplify brainwaves that match or are close to the patterns embedded in our music.
This technique not only boosts brainwave activity but also synchronizes your brainwaves across different regions of your brain. This synchronization aids in harmonizing various brain parts, facilitating more efficient collaboration.
It might seem far-fetched, but our approach is grounded in solid research. We've published numerous papers, conducted rigorous studies, and even received funding from the National Science Foundation to advance our research.
In essence, Brainfm AI offers a scientifically validated, safe method to 'hack' your brain and deliberately control your mental state using sound.

Does this operate in the same way as binaural beats?

Brainfm AI differs from binaural beats, although there are some similarities. It's crucial to note that binaural beats were discovered in 1839 and became popular in the 1970s, with little evolution since then.
You might consider Brainfm AI as an advanced version of binaural beats, or 'binaural beats 2.0'. We've built upon the foundational concept of binaural beats, integrating modern neuroscience and auditory processing knowledge to develop a more effective and potent tool.
Key differences include:

  • ** Binaural beats primarily influence the lower brain regions, which are not directly involved in thinking or creativity.
  • ** Brainfm AI, on the other hand, targets the prefrontal cortex, the brain's hub for thinking and creativity.
  • ** Binaural beats require undamaged hearing in both ears and high-quality headphones for effectiveness.
  • ** Brainfm AI is effective whether you use one or both ears, doesn't mandate the use of headphones, and isn't reliant on your ability to hear specific frequencies.
  • ** Most crucially, Brainfm AI employs multiple methods to ensure the efficacy of our music, as opposed to binaural beats, which rely on a single technique.

What is the size of your scientific research studies?

Our research and testing involve hundreds of participants, and we consistently include placebo groups to ensure that it's not merely the music, but the specific technology within it that enhances focus.
