Mente is a neurofeedback system for autistic kids that creates personalized binaural beats, to suppress excessive delta frequencies, using auditory pathways in the brain.
Delta waves are typically associated with sleep and closed eyes, but autistic people experience high delta wave frequencies while awake. This could be attributed to a feeling of isolation.
The company claims that Mente training should begin between ages 3 and 12, and that positive effects can be seen after 4 to 8 weeks of daily 40-minute sessions. The goal is enhanced concentration and communication.
