Macro, Meso, Micro


The physical design of the LEDs maximizes the optometric requirements for a unique type of MACRO pattern stimulation of the central and autonomic nervous systems. When inspecting the NeuroVizr™ hardware headset, it is immediately obvious that the LEDs have a unique configuration and placement away from the eyes. The design is very much unlike conventional “Mind Machine” Brain Entrainment devices, both current and historically, that use goggles/eyeglass frames. This distinct design is an expression of highly specific optometric parameters required to successfully apply so-called MACRO stimulation patterns and movements of the LED light signaling. In simplicity, the horizontal and vertical (H/V) limits must match the H/V of the average human visual field and present a normative binocular vision spectrum. This same H/V parameter set is well-known in Virtual Reality devices and applications. These MACRO LED signal positions and movements are known to affect the autonomic nervous system in relation to either sympathetic excitation or parasympathetic sedation, as well as various cognitive functions such as memory and visual/auditory imagination.


The NeuroVizr™ utilizes three integrated types of light signaling simultaneously, resulting in unusually rich and meaningful brain information messaging. The three are MACRO, MESO, and MICRO.


The MACRO signals involve specific LED activity in terms of various static positions on the LED template and various moving patterns. Such static/moving patterns have a generalized effect on the nervous system and create a foundational disposition in the neurological responses to the overall signaling.


The MESO signaling refers to an exceptional range of LED “pulsing” rates (to be distinguished from the MICRO “flickering” rates). Advancing neurological research increasingly recognizes that physiological oscillatory rates throughout the human body express themselves in rhythms that ideally constitute an overall “resonance.” Therefore, brain wave oscillations will exist in harmonic relationship to many more somatic oscillations throughout the soma or body. Heart rate, breathing rates, cerebral-spinal pulsations, peristaltic contractions, and so on seek resonance with the ideal goal of coherence. Think of MESO pulses as music rhythms you can dance to. Let’s face it; no one can dance to the “flicker” brain wave rates.


The LEDs also turn off and on (flicker) at rates within a second. These MICRO signals have fine-tuning effects on brain messaging. Microcontrollers can easily manage such rates, constituting the MICRO level of the NeuroVizr™ TRIPLE SIGNAL DYNAMICS. Such MICRO signaling has a compositional set point that enables different “strengths” in the flicker by adjusting the “duty cycle” of each flicker. Furthermore, series sequencing and four rates of change play a critical role in the effects of the MICRO flicker signals. The effects can be reasonably compared to the core significance of sound compositional structures common to all musical styles and genres.


The ability to compose and adjust three distinct yet integrated levels of light signaling simultaneously yields a unique and vibrant visual messaging experience. Each group of light signaling is effective in its own right, so when combining them, the information output is drastically enhanced, much like combining three musical instruments into a jazz ensemble.
