BioGraph Infiniti by Thought Technology:

Requirements: The screens and documents were designed for Version 6.0 and above of the Infiniti software. To optimize the screen displays you will also need to install Infiniti Developer’s Tools. This gives you access to the screen editor so that you can fit your instruments to different screen sizes. To use TAGx2 (i.e., 2-channel TAG Sync) with biofeedback instruments you need a screen with at least 1200x800 resolution. Screen size issues: The default size of the screens which come with BioGraph Infiniti are often 1024x740 pixels. The TAGx2 screens come at 1024x740 and should be the same size as many of your other Infiniti screens. There are also screens that include Temp and GSR biofeedback. They come with resolution of 1200x800. There are too many instruments on the screen to be able to reduce it to 1024x740. If you cannot increase the size of your monitor’s resolution to 1200x800 or above, you will only be able to use the TAGx2 screens that do not include biofeedback instruments. If you have Infiniti’s Developer Tools installed you can open the 1200x800 screens and attempt to resize them to fit your screen. What is the “Audio - Quiet reward” screen and how does it differ from the “Audio” screen? TAG Sync was a developed with applications to mindfulness meditation in mind. The “Quiet Reward” is set to only provide audio indicators when the client is not meeting training criteria. In this manner the client spends time with “The Salience of Silence”. This can be a powerful tool to enhance well-being. The combination of anterior and posterior alpha and theta with mindfulness meditation has recently been shown to up-regulate more than 100 epigenetic factors involving neuroplasticity, the boundaries of cell and self, the repair of DNA, the efficiency of mitochondrial reactions, etc. [1] By training synchrony, free from rogue excursions, with the salience of silence the client appears to be prepared for mindful balance free from conceptual elaboration. [1] Ravnik-Glavac M, et al (2012) - Genome-wide expression changes in a higher state of consciousness. Consciousness and Cognition 21 (2012) 1322–1344 In the “Quiet Reward” screen “Reward 1” instrument (usually theta) produces a rumbling sound when below threshold. “Reward 2” instrument (usually alpha or gamma) produces a pink noise when below thresholds. The other audio screen can be used if you want to feedback “success” using music. You can, for example, set reward 1 to play a music file, e.g., mp3) when above threshold. Reward 2 can be set to generate more pink noise when the amplitude falls below threshold. You can also download the Schumann-Gamma resonance loop and set its volume to be proportional to reward 1. As before, have reward 2 play the “_TAG Pink Noise.mp3” file with the volume inversely proportional to the reward amplitude. Don’t forget, TAG Sync was developed for eyes open training as well. Focused vision will activated networks differently than unfocused open vision.
