We all experience many states of consciousness, from ordinary waking and sleeping to extraordinary states in which we are more at peace, particularly aware, or exceptionally creative. Each of these states is associated with a particular pattern of brainwave activity. We have researched sound and brainwaves scientifically since 1980, developing innovative techiques for embedding brainwave and 3D audio into music soundtracks. After a few minutes of listening, your own brainwaves naturally "lock" onto the inaudible pulses, and lead you easily into the state of mind you choose.
How does it work?
Brainwaves encode mental states
The human brain is made on average of 86 billion neurons using electricity to communicate, which create neural oscillations called brainwaves.
The electrical signals simultaneousy exchanged by groups of millions of neurons produce neural oscillations called brainwaves, measurable using sensitive equipment such as an EEG.
Since they were first observed, brainwaves have been extensively studied and have been shown to be directly related to human cognition, memory and behavior.
Over the years, numerous research studies have demonstrated the direct correlation between the brainwaves occurring in a person's brain and their behavior, cognitive processes, mood and more generally their mental state.
You can tell a lot about a person simply by observing his brainwaves pattern as it directly reflects her state of mind.
Brainwaves are generally characterized by their frequency and are grouped in 5 ranges, each one being related to a set of specific mental states:
Brainwaves work both ways: researchers have found that not only a given mental state produces specific brainwaves, but specific brainwaves induced in a person’s brain can change her mental state.
The beauty of it is that it is actually possible to induce a brainwave pattern in one’s brain through the principle of brainwave entrainment.
Brainwave entrainment is the fact that brainwave frequencies can align with an external stimulus, the stimulus being auditory, visual or tactile.
Sensory stimulus induce in the brain electrical signals called Cortical Evoked Response. When the stimulus presents a temporal periodicity, its rhythm is reproduced in the brain. This is called the Frequency Following Response.
Frequency Following Response (FFR) can occur for any rhytmic stimulus:
Auditory Stimulus FFR
Visual Stimulus FFR
