BSDR Player (Bilateral Sounds Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an application that generates bilateral beeps. It is based on bilateral stimulation (a way of stimulating the brain one side at a time) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). These techniques can produce a direct effect on the way the brain processes or re-processes past emotional experiences. You can use this application to aid in the treatment of traumas, process upsetting situations, disturbing thoughts, improve future performance, or simply feel better. Studies done with patients undergoing EMDR while in CAT scans have shown physiological changes in the brain that lead to adaptive changes in thinking and emotional self-regulation.
"A study comparing the effectiveness of Prozac vs. EMDR showed that EMDR was more successful than Prozac in achieving substantial and sustained reductions in anxiety and depression."

What's New in Version 1.3
Added ability to play in the background while the device screen is locked.
Added ability to mix BSDR Player audio with other apps' audio.
I purchased this because I thought I could utilize my own sounds/music bilaterally using the app but it doesnt have this function. It lets you have your music on (in both ears) and then layers the beeps into the background. Really no point in doing that because it cancels out the bilateral stimulation. The description is misleading about this. Disappointing. Save your $ and go for the cheaper app that does the same beeps.
Developer Will Not Respond...
This app is on average of $7 more than all others... very simple app to develop. I contacted the developer twice to ask one question... no response. I gave them plenty of time. There is nothing to indicate what frequencies the sound waves are. If they are alpha, gamma delta...etc. There is no actual instruction. Unless you are very experienced in what this application is used for and exactly how to use it, it is not a good idea to purchase it in my opinion.
This app doesn't time sessions and it hasn't been updated in two years. There are better apps available now--save your money and buy from a developer who cares about customer service.
