After collections have been recorded and saved, you have the option to view the brain maps. The brain map setup screen allows you to pick and choose how the maps are made. The top box offers six brain maps to choose from.
The multi-colored brain icon is a brain map of the brain’s total electrical activity detected in your collection. Cold colors represent little to no brain activity while warm colors represent high brain activity.
The green, aqua and purple brain icons map the Opti Index percentage. An Opti Index is a feedback value or score used to measure the presence of a specific brain pattern. The higher the index, the closer the brain activity is to reaching that pattern.
The green brain measures the brain pattern trained in Opti Train and represents a synchronization of the active and passive levels of thought. The aqua icon maps the Opti Index trained in Opti Calm and trains low activity. Opti Confidence is the purple icon and trains a mix of synchronized and low activity.
The multi-colored icons that have four or five brains also map brain activity. However, the activity is divided into levels of thought: delta is dreaming, theta is awake, alpha is aware, beta is concentrating, gamma is complex thoughts and emotions. The icon with four brains maps theta, alpha, beta 1 and beta 2. The icon with five brains maps delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma.
The second section decides what data from the collection is used to make the map. The first icon, a chair, should be selected when you recorded data will holding still. Every one second of data in the collection is averaged together to create one map. Seconds containing possible interference are not included in the map.
The second icon, a shoe, should be selected when you recorded brain data while moving your body. Only the last viable second from the collection is mapped so end your collection right after the second you are interested in seeing.
NEW! The final icon maps all the seconds individually in the collection. A movie is played mirroring the collection as it played out when it was recorded. The maps change every half second in the order they were collected. Any seconds with possible interference are labeled (facial tension, eye blinks, or poorly connected electrodes).
The last section of icons decides how many collects are being viewed. The first icon allows you to choose one collection to map. The second icon allows you to choose two collections to be mapped at the same time so they can be compared.
When you are finished changing the settings you can select the Map button. A list of all the collections you have ever saved will then appear on the screen. Scroll up or down to find a collection and then tap it complete the mapping. It may take a few seconds or minutes to create the maps especially if the video setting is selected.
You have the ability to sort, filter and search your collections. At the bottom of the screen there are four grey bars. The top bar will sort the collections. The icons in order from left to right are: newest to oldest, oldest to newest, alphabetical order, from high Opti Brain rating to low, from high Opti Index percentage to low, and place favorited collections on top.
The second grey bar allows you to search the collection titles. The third grey bar allows you to filter the collections by app. Did you know you can map trainings saved from the apps Opti Train, Opti Calm, or Opti Confidence? Tap an app icon and only collections saved by that app will appear.
The final grey bar allows you to filter by date. Pick a starting date and an ending date and collections recorded in that time span will appear.
