The increase in alpha-2-beta brain waves
during explicit learning "could reflect the building of a model of the task," Miller explains.
Acquiring information about one's brain wave
activity allows an individual to make appropriate changes and learn new, more effective ways of responding to stressful situations that are transferable into real world situations (Wilson, Thompson, Thompson, & Peper, 2011).
The results were grouped into general categories, and the subjects were then shown images that corresponded to each category, with their resulting brain waves
patterns also recorded.
In the late 1960s, lab researcher Barry Sterman measured brain waves
in cats and found that he could train the animals to relax by providing a reward when they produced more brain wave
activity in a certain range.
EEGs provide good real-time measurements of brain waves
but lack precision in locating their source, while magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, provides good spatial maps but not in real time.
If such thoughts can be "read," is it so unreasonable to believe that we will be able to identify when a person is thirsty (certain hypothalamic activity), and is simultaneously thinking about vermouth (certain brain wave
Their brain wave
patterns are abnormal and stay like that for a long period.
Harrington's P300 brain wave
didn't respond when he was shown photos of the crime scene.
As people learn to control this brain wave
, they could then operate anything a programmer could hook up to a computer.
Much like rats manoeuvring their way through a maze, the researchers monitored the brain waves
of the teenagers as they navigated their way on a video screen.
People in the third group who have normal brain wave
patterns do not react abnormally to light stimulation.
This was achieved by manipulating the game in favor of the computer as soon as brain wave
measurements indicated that the player was about to move.
