Playing video games has become a very popular form of entertainment. Research recognizes many positive effects gaming has on different areas of the brain. It has been shown to activate areas in the brain that deal with memory, visual imagery, and cognitive control.

Neurosage is a noninvasive computer software application that is designed to improve balance and coordination. Light and sound stimulate the brain and has been used for years for their therapeutic benefits. Different frequencies of light and sound produce different effects. For example, alpha range visual and auditory stimulation reduces the perception of pain. Other frequencies induce a parasympathetic or relaxed state. This process is named Systemic Neural Adaptation, which involves the intentional change of the body’s system over time.
