Academic Performance & AVE Research Article

A Novel Way of Boosting Grades and Socialization While Reducing Stress in the Typical University Student

Abstract:  Attention, concentration, memory, grade-point average and stress/worry are all primary concerns of the modern university and college student. Also, young adults are concerned about having a somewhat active social life in between exams, essays and deadlines. The stress of school shunts cerebral blood flow away from the cortex (during stress the brain assumes the body needs blood in the core to prepare for flight or battle which is just the opposite of what the present day student needs). This slows brain wave activity down into greater alpha and theta brain wave frequencies, similar to what is seen in those with ADD and ADHD, leaving the student more distractible, impulsive and hyperactive. This behavior in turn impairs the student’s ability to study and write exams, thus increasing stress and using valuable social time needed to shake off stress and the potential of falling into depression. Audio-visual entrainment (AVE) has been shown to produce dramatic increases in cerebral blood flow, efficient brain activity and sound mental health. Several studies involving the use of AVE for enhancing academic performance have been completed. AVE has proven to be an effective and affordable aid to better grades and improved socialization.

Dave's Adventures in AVE Land

Dave Siever first got involved in AVE when he was designing a research lab to diagnose and treat TMJ Dysfunction in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Alberta with Dr. Norman Thomas (now teaching in Vegas). While Dave was there, an instructor from Performing Arts commissioned him to design an AVE system for him to help his students overcome stage-fright. Given that Dave was up to his ying-yang building the lab and performing TMJ studies, all while teaching a Basic Human Physiology course at the same time, he was hesitant to accept any new projects. But he did it anyways, and boy, was he glad he did!
