What we've discovered is if you give the subjects theanine, which is present in tea, their alpha waves
decrease and they get better at the task.
It also has potential for children because they have more alpha waves
Levels 1, 2, 3 were defined as duration of alpha waves
more than 5 seconds from 1 to 5 seconds and less than 1 second in 10 seconds tracing.
are associated with relaxation, but they also are believed to arise when one is actively inhibiting certain cognitive functions in favour of others, he said.
Long experimentation with alpha waves
and biofeedback testing.
The subject attempted to control his alpha waves
while listening to computer feedback of both alphawave content and the computer's interpretation in Morse code.
are brain waves of low frequency that increase relaxation and creativity.
Imaging the brain state using EEG: the alpha waves
When you focus, you create beta waves; when you relax, you create alpha waves
," Garten explained.
Scientific research has shown that during meditation there is a marked increase in alpha waves
, which is an electrical rhythm associated with the release of anxiety giving a state of wakeful relaxation.
When we are meditating, which means we are relaxed but aware, the brain produces alpha waves
, which come at around 10 per second.
