- Difficulties with attention are sometimes associated with poor sound reception. Through heightened bone conduction, Forbrain® focuses attention allowing better follow-through and completion, whether that's a thought, a sentence or a project. Exercising your own voice through Forbrain® can enable better attention at school, at work, or in anything you do.

Two Ways to Hear, One Great Way to Improve!
There are two ways we process sound, a critical part of brain function that influences many aspects of our lives.
Air conduction canal
Sound starts its journey when captured by the outer ears, traveling in air through several structures within the ear. It then reaches the brain where it is decoded and sent to other areas of the nervous system to be used in many, many critical life functions.
Bone conduction canal
There is another fascinating way the body processes sound. Sound waves are also transmitted through the bones in our heads! When our bones vibrate, sound is sent directly to the cochlea vestibule nerve in the inner ear. This sound transmission directly through our bones is similar to traveling through the eardrum and middle ear. This vibration creates nerve impulses, which are then sent to the brain. This is called bone conduction!
In Forbrain® the amplified bone conduction and natural air conduction work with an individual’s voice to process information more clearly and thus understand communications better.
The Auditory feedback loop is the natural process by which every individual perceives, analyzes, assimilates and continuously adjusts the information individually received and produced through sound. To function properly, this audio-vocal loop draws on the abilities of auditory discrimination, phonological awareness and integration of rhythm that each person activates effortlessly. These skills are natural to human function and go far beyond speech. They are necessary in all learning processes.
As a result of these processes and the technology that develops them, Forbrain can improve not just speech and language but many aspects of communication and learning. This simple technology can have a profound effect by changing the brain through strengthening the audiological loop, the auditory system and many associated brain functions.
Using Forbrain just s few minutes a day can make a difference. This easy-to-use technology simply requires speaking, reading or even singing out loud, so that the user's voice can be heard through bone conduction rather than air conduction through the ears.
