Register for API access for interacting with Muse devices through Muse SDK

Looking to develop your own app that integrates with Muse?

Muse SDK handles the Bluetooth connection and asynchronously manages that connection.

By linking with the Muse library, an application can access signals from
the sensors on the Muse headband (EEG, PPG, accelerometer etc.) along
with a few processed signals as identified in the SDK documentation.

Also offered in the library are classes for saving and reading data in the
.muse file format, simulating playback, and managing log messages.
Available for iOS and Android. Windows, Unity, and Unreal to come!

Conducting research with Muse?

If you are an academic researcher, we have a suite of specific validated research tools, please contact us to learn more about our research tools.

The Power of EEG Technology

Electroencephalography, or EEG, is a state-of-the-art technology that reads and records the electrical activity within the brain. The result? Wave-like patterns that provide a real-time visual snapshot of the brain at work.

This powerful tool has allowed us to map states of consciousness, study neurological disorders, uncover the mysteries of sleep, and ultimately, advanced our understanding of the brain's intricate workings.

Yet, accessing this tool has historically been costly, complex, and inaccessible outside of clinical settings.

Accuracy at Scale

Today, EEG devices are more portable, user-friendly, and affordable than ever. But how does the accuracy of these devices stack up against the experts?

Muse has earned its place as a trusted technology for neuroscientists, researchers, clinicians, and individuals across the globe.

Biofeedback Training Meets Meditation

Biofeedback training, especially when linked with meditation, is an effective method that helps users gain more control over their body’s and brain’s functions and responses.

Here's how it works: Muse gives users real-time audio feedback on their brain activity to reinforce an optimal meditative state. Muse measures the user's brainwave patterns, heart rate, and breathing then gives them real-time audio feedback on their mental state to let them know when they’re in the zone.

Over time, this can improve their ability to focus, reduce stress, and enhance self-awareness.

Foundational research

Muse has been instrumental in over 200 peer-reviewed studies with a focus on cognitive performance, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.

Here are a few highlighted works:
