A New Theory of Consciousness
HEALTH/SCIENCE, New Mexican April 7, 1995
For scientists who study the human brain, even its simplest act of perception is an event of astonishing intricacy.
40 Hz brain activity may be a kind of binding mechanism, said Dr. Rodolfo Llinas, a professor of neuroscience at New York University.
Llinas believes that the 40-cycle-per-second wave serves to connect structures in the cortex where advanced information processing occurs, and the thalamus, a lower brain region where complex relay and integrative functions are carried out.
The Brain Wave Frequencies of Health
by Jean Charles Genet, Director of The National Center for Integrative Medicine and The National Research Center for Chronic Fatigue
The ability of the brain to enter and maintain certain frequencies while sleeping may determine the level of health a person experiences.
Individuals suffering from the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue (waking up tired, stressed, experiencing symptomatic pain, depression, confused thinking, memory loss, headaches, nervous stomach, or having sleeping disorders, etc.) were solicited by the National Research Center for Chronic Fatigue in Denver, Colorado.
Patients were measured by electroencephalographic (EEG) brain wave recordings. It was revealed that certain frequencies could not be maintained. Although, as with any group, the response to one measured frequency is different from one person to the next, the overall response from those tested showed seven frequencies to be consistently weaker.
These seven frequencies seemed to be guide posts within the subconscious that lead the brain into and out of specific functions necessary for the nightly reconstructive process of the body to occur while in the sleep cycle. The weakness or inability to reach and maintain these frequencies related directly to the specific symptom or ailment experienced.
Reduction in Levels of Exhaustion
Those who suffer from Chronic Fatigue exhaust very easily. When moved to 4HZ these individuals showed marked improvement in the length of time between the occurrence of exhaustion after certain exercises were completed.
Solutions to Problems
At 7.5 HZ subjects who before suffered from confused thinking reported an ease at finding solutions to troublesome problems after a re-evaluation was conducted.
Less Effect From Symptoms
Those individuals whose ailments have manifested into the fourth stage of Chronic Fatigue, where some form of disease is apparent, experienced a release from the negative sensation of their symptoms when moved into 1.5HZ.
