The Neuro-Programmer 3 (NP3) is an innovative software application for the PC, built to help you stimulate your brain and achieve lasting personal change using binaural beats and more advanced forms of neural stimulation! We hope that this page, and the links below, will help to answer the questions you have about binaural beats and their use in our unique software:
Are you already using binaural beats and eager to see and hear what makes our software different? Head to our download page for a two-week free trial of Neuro-Programmer 3! But keep in mind that the sessions may sound very different from what you've heard before. This is not a glitch. What you are hearing is more than just binaural beats- visit our technical page to learn more about our unique approach to brainwave entrainment.

When binaural beats are utilized as a stimulus under specific circumstances, early studies have shown evidence of beneficial outcomes such as anxiety reduction and increased concentration. However, even more promising results have been drawn from experiments utilizing additional forms of neural stimulation, and the sessions in NP3 have been meticulously designed to produce the greatest neural response during EEG tests. Here are just a few of the reasons one might use NP3, with links to even more information and supporting research!
Cognition / Attention / Focus: A growing body of research is showing that brainwave stimulation can be an incredibly effective tool to promote attention and focus. Learn more...
Stress Reduction: The sessions included in NP3 are designed to be naturally relaxing, but it also comes with sessions specifically designed for stress and anxiety. Learn more...
Emotional Stability / Mood Support: Decades of neurofeedback research have revealed specific brainwave patterns characteristic of negative moods and overly emotional mental states. Based on this, brainwave entrainment sessions have been developed and recent research is showing it to be a very promising aide in this area. Learn more...
Study help: NP3 can help optimize the brain for studying- users consistently report being more productive and learning more quickly while using NP3. Learn more...
Motivation / Energy: Many users report experiencing a great boost in energy as a result of NP3 sessions, including a "Wake Up" session that can replace caffeine! Learn more...
Deep Meditation: Using NP3 can be likened to a form of "high tech" meditation, where audio and visual patterns are used to guide your mind to the relaxed, focused state experienced during meditation.

What does this software let me do with binaural beats?
It is a recent development that the potential benefits of brainwave entrainment and binaural beats have generated enough interest in the scientific community for research to be done. Despite this fact, there are already a number of published studies available documenting results from experiments with binaural beats, and even more meaningful results from the use of additional entrainment methods (such as isochronic tones, monaural beats, and photic stimulation - all of which are utilized in NP3).
Here are three conclusions to published and peer-reviewed studies on brainwave entrainment:
"Findings to date suggest that BWE [brainwave entrainment] is an effective therapeutic tool. People suffering from cognitive functioning deficits, stress, pain, headache/migraines, PMS, and behavioral problems benefited from BWE." Huang, T., Charyton, C., 2008. Alternative Therapies. Volume 14.1
- "Results suggest that the presentation of binaural auditory beats can affect psychomotor performance and mood. This technology may have applications for the control of attention and arousal and the enhancement of human performance." Lane, J. D., Kasian, S. J., Owens, J. E. and Marsh, G. R., 1998. Physiology & Behaviour. Volume 63.2
- "The eight students from the SPALDING reading program who received AVE [Audio and Visual Entrainment] improved their reading scores more than their classmates who served as controls. The data suggests AVE was a useful experience for the participants. Parents and teachers reported the children were calmer and could focus better. The results met or exceeded our expectations." Joyce, M, and Siever, D., 2000. Journal of Neurotherapy. Volume 4.2

If you want to go beyond our site, Google Scholar is an excellent free resource for locating credible, peer-reviewed articles on any topic. Try running a search on "brainwave entrainment" or even "binaural beats" for an unfiltered look into the newest research being done to advance the scientific understanding of the benefits that can be gained from this technology.
Using a unique approach that combines the best methods from many different fields, the Neuro-Programmer is the premier software application for playing, editing, and creating entrainment sessions using binaural beats and advanced brainwave stimulation- it even includes options for photic (light) stimulation using your computer screen! Although it is incredibly simple to use, Neuro-Programmer remains one of the most effective self-help tools on the market today.
