Research has shown that training working memory and attention in the school setting can generalize to improved academic skills and better behavior in the classroom. Adding neurofeedback to brain training can enhance the power of the training by helping students get “in the zone,” learning to relax and focus while they work. Your students will have a great time playing SmartMind 4’s entertaining, engaging games while developing a positive, relaxed state of mind.
You can easily systematize the training for each individual student. Plus, you can reinforce the classroom training by using SmartMind 4’s new optional cloud-based technology to send your students home with SmartMind 4 homework.

- Your students can use their brainwaves to run their MP3, CD, or DVD players!
Games, Games, Games!
SmartMind 4 features 32 different neuro games – enough variety to keep your clients engaged for a long time. An individual’s success in maintaining a state of physical and mental relaxation powers the games and provides fun feedback regarding his success. In addition to the SmartMind 4 games, the system interfaces with MP3, CD, and DVD players, or you can combine SmartMind 4 with the 50 Captain’s Log MindPower Builder exercises to enhance brain training.
- MindFlow NEW!
Your clients can use their relaxed state and EEG to control the Ocean breeze, make the Lotus bloom, and control the Fountain Flow. Eight new exercises included!
- Exercise Pack I
Your clients can climb trees, build robots, win races against the computer, and even control CD, DVD, or MP3 players – all powered by their ability to maintain a relaxed positive mental state.
- NeuroSport Games
Using only their ability to stay relaxed, your clients of all ages can learn to excel at shooting baskets, kicking field goals, playing soccer, fishing, and more!
- Nature Walk
Your clients will breathe the fresh air and experience the sparkling night sky. They use their relaxed state to keep the campfire going, catch the apples falling from the tree, illuminate the fireflies, and help the butterflies fly.
- MindPower Games
These entertaining “video games” interact with the neurofeedback. The client must maintain his SmartMind EEG reward “zone” while he engages in playing the game, which he controls with the mouse, keyboard, game controller, or touchscreen. The better he maintains a relaxed focused state, the more points he scores.
- Captain’s Log Brain Games
Research supports the effectiveness of combining neurofeedback with cognitive training (Tinius & Tinius, Journal of Neurotherapy, 2000). In these Brain Games, the Captain’s Log Cognitive Training System is adapted for use in tandem with SmartMind 4. The client develops the ability to access a relaxed mental state to optimize learning.
SmartDriver is an entertaining, non-violent driving game designed to build cognitive skills and self-esteem. The game consists of forty-five progressive levels of difficulty for ages 6 through adult. Using neurofeedback, individuals can learn to maintain a physically and mentally relaxed state of mind while driving the car through an ever changing and increasingly challenging obstacle course.
We recommend using SmartDriver in conjunction with a USB steering wheel with brake and accelerator pedals to provide a fun, realistic driving experience.
