What are Brainwaves?

The brain is made up of billions of cells called neurons, that communicate with each other through electrical signals. With millions of neurons sending signals simultaneously, enormous amounts of electrical activity is produced in the brain. Sensitive medical equipment, such as an EEG, can detect this activity.

The culmination of electrical activity of the brain is referred to as a BrainWave because of its cyclic, "wave-like" pattern.

Common brainwave types and their associated mental states include:

Beta 12Hz - 38Hz Wide awake, the general mental state of most people during the day

SMR (sensorimotor rhythm 12 - 15Hz) Stimulation in the range can result in relaxed focus and improved attention.
Beta 1 (15 - 20 Hz) - Increased mental abilities, IQ and focus
Beta 2 (20 - 38Hz) - Highly alert, even anxious

Alpha 8Hz - 12Hz Alert while deeply relaxed and not processing information. The mental state of early morning or daydreaming with enhanced visualization and receptiveness to suggestion.

Theta 3Hz - 8Hz Light sleep or extreme relaxation. A hyper-suggestible state.
Theta 1 (3 - 5 Hz) If suppressed, can improve concentration, ability to focus attention
Theta 2 (5 - 8 Hz) Very relaxed and dreamful sleep, good for mental programming

Delta 0.2Hz - 3Hz Deep, dreamless sleep. Slowest of brainwaves and the most dominant. Your body is healing itself and you do not dream. It is theorized that Delta waves have specific effects on the limbic system, the amygdala and hypothalamus. Delta frequencies appear to "sooth" these neural structures and can be very effective reducing migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and blood pressure.

What is Brainwave Entrainment?

Brainwave Entrainment refers to the brain's electrical response to rhythmic sensory stimulation, such as sound or light. In response to this rhythmic stimulus, the brain responds by synchronizing to the same rhythm.

Frequency Following Response

This Frequency Following Response technique can be applied to nearly all mental states, from concentration, creativity, to deep meditation or lucid dreaming.

Combining Musical sound files with the pulsing waveforms stimulates creativity and visualization while using ambient sound files such as rain, wind, ocean waves, or bubbling water aid in relaxation and meditation . Specific Hemisphere's of the Brain can be targeted.

Hemispheric Synchronization refers to a state when the brainwave patterns of the left and right brain become similar. Coherence and cerebral synchronization are a result.
