Muse passively measures your brain’s natural electric field from outside your head while you meditate. When your mind is in a deep restful focus on breath, your brain will transmit more energy at certain brain frequencies, and less energy at others. When your mind is at a neutral state of rest, that pattern will change. When your mind wanders and becomes more active, Muse will pick up a different characteristic energy pattern from your brain, which reflects your changing state.
Muse translates your brain signals into a rich, real-time audio experience on your mobile device to help guide your meditation. A calm mind will hear the sounds of a tranquil environment. An active mind will hear the weather soundscape change.
Make sure to keep your eyes closed and relaxed during the calibration and session for the most accurate possible results.
