If your brain were a car, EEG would be the engine and transmission; HEG would be the steering and brakes. Whole-Brain training combines the two for greatest effect.
If the habits you want to train are control issues: controlling attention, impulses to speak, act or express emotions, motivating/prioritizing/organizing/planning, appropriate social responses, etc., then HEG may resolve them.
HEG is fast and easy to learn, no “hook-up” or clean-up needed, training requires only about 15-20 minutes 2-3 times/week and does not require an assessment.
If you are training for learning problems, emotional issues, history of trauma, improved performance, injuries or most other issues, EEG will be an important part of your work.
EEG requires an assessment (it works with more complex systems), involves use of a cap or electrodes to train various areas and get good signals. Training sessions may involve 30-60 minutes 2-3 times/week and will train multiple areas or systems. Most new trainers complete an assessment within a week or so of getting set up and can be training within 2 weeks.
You can purchase a Signature HEG system first and, if you decide you wish, buy an HEG-to EEG upgrade package later. If you think you may do this, it’s best to buy the HEG system with QWIZ instead of XWIZ amplifier.
