The Biocybernaut Institute, Inc. was founded in 1983 by Dr. James V. Hardt, a physicist, psychologist and psychophysiologist, now with over forty years of research and clinical practice in neurofeedback brain wave enhancement.
The brain is a bio- electrico- magneto- chemical organ and the biochemical activity within and between neurons produces tiny, but detectable electrical waves, often measuring just a few millionths of a volt. Some types of brain electrical activity arise in response to sensory inputs. These are call Evoked Potentials and they fade away quickly after any stimulus. The focus of the Biocybernaut technology is not Evoked Potentials, but rather the continuous EEG that runs even in the absence of sensory stimulation reaching the brain. These waves are called brain waves or EEG, which stands for Electro-Encephalo-Graph. Brain wave measurements of the EEG provide information on the instantaneous and ongoing states of an individual’s brain.
Dr. James V. Hardt serves as the President and founder of Biocybernaut Institute, Inc. He holds a B.S. in Physics from Carnegie Institute of Technology, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Psychology from Carnegie-Mellon University and he has done post-doctoral training in Psychophysiology at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute at the University of California at San Francisco.
Dr. Hardt has authored or co-authored more than 60 papers and professional presentations. He has authored, co-authored or has pending over 30 patents for the core technology, headset, training methodology and brain-centered portion of virtual reality applications. He has dedicated his life in the research and development surrounding brain wave training.
Dr. Hardt was mentored by Dr. Joe Kamiya, the scientist who first discovered, in 1962, that humans could voluntarily control their own brain waves if they were given brain wave feedback. Dr. Hardt has earned a national reputation as a preeminent research scientist for his over 40 years of work in biofeedback.
Dr. Hardt’s research has been supported by private and Federal grants and contributions from prestigious organizations such as the Fetzer Foundation. He presents at numerous, prestigious national and international meetings and has published in leading scholarly journals such as Science, Psychophysiology, Journal of Experimental Psychology, Biofeedback and Self-Regulation and Advances In Mind-Body Medicine.
For over 40 years Dr. Hardt has been studying the electrophysiological basis of advanced spiritual states. He has traveled to India several times to study advanced Yogis with his technology, has studied Zen meditators and Zen masters, and explored Christian prayer and contemplation. He has developed a technology based on electroencephalographic (EEG) measurement and feedback, combined, in a highly optimized methodology, with computerized measures of subjective states, depth interviews, and extensive coaching in forgiveness, engaged indifference [TM] and non-attachment.
This technology and training methodologies have demonstrated significant effectiveness in healing and transforming core dimensions of personality dysfunction, reducing stress and anxiety, reversing key aspects of the brain’s aging process, increasing creativity by 50% and boosting IQ by nearly 12 points on average, enhancing peak performance, facilitating conflict resolution, and expanding spiritual awareness and increasing access to advanced spiritual states.
