Brain Technologies Corporationbtclogo

For more than 30 years, our mission at Brain Technologies Corporation has been to create brain change models, tools and techniques that help people “make the leap.”

We want users of our products to better understand what is happening around and within themselves. Better fathom how their senses and their intellects, as well as their spirit and their belief systems, shape—and sometimes shield—what they find to be true. Better appreciate what is new and novel, and grow swifter at assigning it meaning and usefulness. In short, get better and better at “making the leap.”

We are a family-owned-and-operated company headquartered in Gainesville, Florida, with a worldwide outreach. Thanks to the Internet, our top-selling books and products are available in eight languages. And we have a wide, wide variety in our clients. See the NW Resources eStore.
