On this Couch Talk podcast join Dr. Anna and Ariel Garten, Neuroscientist, as they discuss the benefits of meditation and her company’s tool, Muse™ – the brain sensing headband. Muse has helped thousands of people, including Olympic athletes, CEOs, musicians, and many more – including Dr. Anna – establish a meditation practice that incorporates real-time bio feedback.
Says Dr. Anna,
“I wanted to share Muse with my community because I have always found meditation to be a challenge. Muse, however, has really helped me develop my meditation practice. This has allowed me to carry the benefits of meditation into my daily life. Using the Muse headband helps me gain better focus and presence (a benefit of meditation). It is also a wonderful way to decrease everyday anxiety and stress.”
The headband is comfortable and there is an easy to follow tutorial to help you learn the essentials of focused attention meditation. Soundscapes include Beach, Rainforest, Desert, and others. The app includes milestones and rewards to help keep you motivated, and there are data and graphs that help you measure your progress.

Meet Ariel Garten
Ariel Garten is the co-founder of InteraXon, the makers of Muse: The brain sensing headband.
Muse is an award-winning, easy-to-use brain fitness tool that helps you do more with your mind. Muse senses your brain activity like a heart monitor senses your heart and sends that information to your phone or tablet – giving you real time feedback of what your brain is doing moment to moment.
Ariel studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto and worked in labs at Toronto’s esteemed Krembil Neuroscience Centre researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. No mere science nerd, Ariel is a fashion designer whose clothing opened Toronto Fashion Week and sold across North America; and she has had her work displayed at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Ariel was also trained as a psychotherapist and had her own private practice.
Her unique combination of art and science is integral to the design of Muse and to InteraXon’s cutting-edge approach to brain sensing technology. Ariel and Muse: the brain sensing headband are regularly lauded in global media, including CNN, Forbes, Popular Science, CNET, CNBC, VentureBeat, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal Tech and many more, for creating what VentureBeat calls “the most important wearable of 2014”.
