Enjoy a 10-minute brainwave entrainment session using alpha wave stimulation. The precisely configured alpha wave stimulation in this video was generated using Neuro-Programmer 3, a powerful software application that includes over 120 full-length built-in sessions right out of the box, and the capability to design and create your own sessions with unlimited possibilities.
Alpha Brain Waves
The Alpha brain wave state has a frequency range of 8 to 12 Hz, and is associated with an awake but relaxed state.
In research studies, stimulation of alpha brain waves has been associated with:
Patients who underwent alpha stimulation reported decreased pain/discomfort during procedure (18 out of 20 vs 3 out of 20 in a control group) (Nomura T et al. Slow wave photic stimulation relieves patient discomfort during esophagogastroduodenoscopy. J Gastroenterol Hepatol, 2006)
STAI (anxiety test) scores pre/post 35 minutes of alpha stimulation showed a marked reduction in stress. (Ossebaard HC. Stress reduction by technology? Appl Psychophysiol Biofeedback, 2000)
Percentage of words accurately recalled during alpha stimulation were greater, outperforming the control group by 15%. (Wiilaims, J. et al. “10Hz flicker improves recognition memeory in older people.” BMC Neurosci.)
