Advanced Brain Technologies Releases Audio Program to Aid Sleep

Press Release

February 11, 2013

Advanced Brain Technologies, an Ogden-based company, has introduced The Listening Program SLEEP, an audio program that uses a combination of nearly inaudible sounds paired with music to help people sleep.

TLP SLEEP was created by neuroscientist Seth Horowitz and sound designer Lance Massey. It uses a combination of nearly inaudible sounds embedded in beautiful music and is intended for both children and adults.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 40 million American adults have a chronic sleep disorder. But nearly three times that number — 60 percent of adults and 69 percent of children — report trouble sleeping a few nights a week or more. This has contributed to a $32 billion industry of products designed to improve sleep, including over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, supplements, sound machines and more. TLP SLEEP is based on the idea that something as simple as the right sounds could help people n fall sleep faster and stay asleep longer.

“Recent studies have demonstrated that sedatives and hypnotics don’t induce ‘normal’ sleep,” said Horowitz said. , “And, while sleep machines and apps that play quiet repetitive sounds and music are calming and useful for masking intrusive sounds, they don’t actually induce sleep.”

“TLP SLEEP uses three kinds of sound that work directly on the brain in different ways,” Horowitz said. “Very low frequency sounds trigger the motion-induced sleepiness that babies experience while being rocked, quiet ‘pink’ noise shaped to match the sound signatures of heartbeats and breathing to reduce activity in the brain's arousal centers, and binaural beats help the brain match the waveforms that characterize the stages of sleep.”

The music programs come loaded on an iPod shuffle equipped with special headphones with speakers embedded in a comfortable, washable headband.
