The following report describes preliminary results of a study that employed a special set of Hemi-Sync tapes for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in conjunction with amino acid therapy for a group of twelve children.
Research over the past decade has brought forth a tool that assists in focusing attention for various learning modalities. It is called Hemi-Sync®, which is short for hemispheric synchronization of the brain. To date, there are no journal publications that discuss this particular technique. The National Research Council's Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance has recently initiated a two-year study of Hemi-Sync.
This paper discusses the application of Hemi-Sync® technology, in four different formats, to enhance the instructional environment during the delivery of a Conflict Management workshop for administrators. An overview of workshop content objectives is presented, together with the results of a basic statistical analysis of participants’ perceptions.
Devon Edrington, a philosophy professor at the Tacoma Community College in Washington, developed a method for focusing attention in the classroom setting by using Hemi-Sync signals masked with neo-classical music.
It’s been almost three and a half years since I began using music with Hemi-Sync in the classroom. I use Hemi-Sync in that setting the same way it had originally been presented to me; with relaxation techniques and guided imagery along with cognitive material.

Céline Tardif participated in five TMI residential programs between 1992 and 1995. Recognizing the power of her experiences at the programs, she has continued to make Hemi- Sync a valued part of her daily life. Since 1994 she has been introducing Hemi-Sync and TMI to many audiences and instituting Hemi-Sync projects, especially in the field of education, in which she has worked for twenty years.
Peter Spiro's report about the use of Metamusic® a class of adolescent students in an alternative high school setting demonstrates some of the almost miraculous benefits of Hemi-Sync®. He demonstrates the effectiveness of an environment that alleviates stress and anxiety and supports learning.
The Teen Tapes were a series of twenty-four tapes intended for use by teenagers and educators, focusing on issues that confront teens. Using the Hemi-Sync technology, these tapes offered twenty-five to thirty-minute learning and relaxation sessions for use in school or home.
Barbara's deep involvement with the Hemi-Sync® sound technology and three decades of research, testing, and teaching about the impact of speech, sound, and music on the brain were the impetus for a three-year effort to create a superlearning METAMUSIC®.
