The paper discusses a standardized therapeutic treatment using the Brain Music System, a system that uses Sonified Neurofeedback accurately and cost effectively to convert brainwaves into musical sound using Digital Signal Processing algorithms. A standard course of sonified neurofeedback therapy (for example 15 sessions), tailored specifically to individual patients, is a realistic possibility due to the inexpensive and portable nature of the system, and could be used both inside or even

In a pilot study to test the algorithms and output of the Brain Music System, the distribution of the Alpha, Beta and Theta waves in normal subjects corresponds closely to that in published studies using standard high-end equipment (confined to expensive clinical setups). These results allows the Brain Music System to align its protocol to practice standards, and to better associate standard algorithmic tasks to each of the three mentioned brainwave types.
