The Neuroscience of Learning

Whether you're perfecting your free throw or picking up a new language, you need to form new pathways in your brain in order to learn anything.

The scientific term for this process is called plasticity: your brain’s ability to create and strengthen connections between neurons.

Hyperplasticity

Learn Movement Faster
with Halo Sport

Halo Sport increases your brain's natural plasticity, so you can create and strengthen motor pathways faster. We call this hyperplasticity, or hyperlearning.

The headset works by applying a small electric current to the part of the brain that controls movement, activating neurons so they fire more often when you train. The more neurons fire, together, the faster pathways are built in your brain.

That means you can learn any movement faster — from playing piano to performing a muscle up.

All Movement is Learned the Same Way

Playing guitar, lifting weights, and running may seem different — but your brain learns each of these movements the same way: via the motor cortex. While the pathways in the brain that produce each movement differ, they're all created through repetition and plasticity.

Skill

To play guitar or sink a putt, your brain has to send signals to the correct muscles in a specific order. With Halo Sport, your brain needs fewer reps to perfect that process.

Strength

To lift more weight, your brain needs to send a stronger signal to your muscles. With Halo Sport, your brain strengthens that signal faster.

Endurance

At the end of a run, your brain is sending weaker signals to your muscles, so you feel fatigued. With Halo Sport, your brain learns to maintain stronger signals throughout the run.

Halo Sport is safe

More than 4,000 peer-reviewed studies covering 100,000 stimulation sessions support the safety and efficacy of Halo Sport.

tDCS Powers Halo Sport

Halo Sport uses a form of brain stimulation called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
