Different types of brain waves

Specific frequencies are thought to be involved in specific cognitive tasks.

  • During deep sleep, the predominant brain activity occurs with frequencies between 1 and 4 Hertz (delta waves.) Delta waves are associated with learning and motivation.
  • Theta waves (4-7Hz) are linked to memory and emotional regulation.

Brain entrainment - where brain cells fire at the same frequency - is a real effect that happens in response to particular rhythmic frequencies perceived by our senses. A deep-pitched musical tone can cause your brain cells to start firing at the same frequency.

  3. Alpha State: (9 - 13Hz) Brain waves start to slow down out of thinking min...
