Is it unreasonable to think that the brain wave
pattern has also changed when the firing of cells that create a perception has changed?
Tucker said future research will explore whether a standard set of adjustments can be used to refine brain wave
data in some people.
In the study carried out by University of California, Berkeley, scientists found that slow brain waves
generated during deep restorative sleep, which one experiences in youth, play a crucial role in transporting memories form a region in brain called hippocampus, where memories are stored for short term, to a region where these are stored for long term called the prefrontal cortex.
The hope is that imagined words can be uncovered by "reading" the brain waves
It's called neurotherapy, and it works by helping people change their own brain waves
Using neuro-feedback to add depth and accuracy to counseling in general requires an understanding of the basic brain waves
used in NF: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.
The system works with the help of brainwave-detecting technology, or electroencephalography (EEG), via a cap wired with sensors that detects the user's brain waves
Over time, brain wave
patterns of a person in this type of situation can change.
But he and other neuroscientists say the study may be fatally flawed because it uses technology that cannot reliably distinguish one type of brain wave
pattern from another.
Gain Control Over Stress Using Advanced Brain Wave
and Muscle Wave Monitoring
Using a CATEEN scanner, linked to a machine measuring brain wave
activity, researchers were able to create the images above.
Developed by neuroscientist (brain scientist) Lawrence Farwell at Brain Wave
Science in Fairfield, Iowa, the device records the brain's electrical response to crime-scene photos.
To track attention with the EEG, they measured a brain wave
that indicates where attention is focused.
It takes tremendous effort--hundreds of hours of training--but eventually, the patient learns to concentrate on modulating a particular type of brain wave
We've shown that this brain wave
, which has been extensively studied in animals, appears in similar kinds of tasks in our human epileptic patients," says Michael Kahana, an assistant professor at Brandeis University.
