Beta waves range between 13-40 HZ You are wide-awake, alert. Your mind is sharp, focused. It makes connections quickly, easily, and you're primed to do work that requires your full attention. In the Beta state, neurons fire abundantly, in rapid succession, helping you achieve peak performance. New ideas and solutions to problems flash like lightning into your mind.
Attention Deficit Disorder
Beta training is beneficial for the treatment of ADD.
Beta brainwaves help you prepare for an exam, give a presentation, analyze and organize information and other activities where mental alertness and high levels of concentration are key to your success.
is the high beta frequency used on many Brain Sync audio programs which falls into the Gamma Wave range. See Gamma Waves for more details on this powerful brainwave frequency.
Theta Brainwaves Bar
Going deeper into a trance-like state of meditation, you enter the mysterious Theta state where brain activity slows almost to the point of sleep, but not quite. Theta is one of the more elusive and extraordinary realms you can explore. It is also known as the twilight state which you normally only experience fleetingly upon waking, or drifting off to sleep.
Dreamlike Imagery, Inspiration & Insight
In Theta, you are in a waking dream, receptivity is heightened and you are able to access knowledge and information that normally lies beyond your conscious awareness. As flashes of vivid imagery dance before your mind's eye, you may feel a "floating" sensation as your mind expands beyond the boundaries of your body. In this deeply relaxed state don't be surprised to receive sudden insights, inspiration or a sense of knowing.
Theta rests directly on the threshold of your subconscious. Advanced meditators are able to enter the Theta state and maintain it without falling to sleep. Theta meditation lowers blood pressure, releases endorphins, increases creativity and awakens extrasensory perception.
Theta also plays an important part in behavior modification programs and has been used in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. Because theta brainwave activity induces an "endorphin high" it can reduce the desire for mind altering substances. Also, because theta is associated with heightened receptivity, it is the ideal state to reprogram your mind with positive thoughts that assist in changing habits and behaviors.
Super Learning, Long-Term Memory and Self-Hypnosis
Theta is an ideal state for super learning, storing information in long term memory, re-programming your mind, dream recall, and self-hypnosis. The theta frequency is recognized as the gateway to learning and memory. What is learned in theta get's stored in long term memory. Children under the age of 5 learn more in their first few years of life, because they are primarily in the theta state.
Gamma Brainwaves Bar
You are wide awake, intensely focused and alert. Gamma waves, (40 Hz and up) are the fastest of the brainwave frequencies and signify the highest state of focus possible. They are associated with peak concentration and the brain’s optimal frequency for cognitive functioning. Like a pro baseball player counting the stitches on an incoming fastball; in the Gamma state, your brain is running at full capacity.
Increase Clarity and Cognition
The gamma wave is a pattern of brain waves associated with perception and consciousness. Gamma waves work like the glue of the mind, holding and connecting all your senses and thought processes together in a unified whole. Nobel prize winning scientist, Sir Francis Crick believes that the 40Hz frequency may be the key to the act of cognition.
Gamma activity also works as a natural anti-depressant, boosting your mood, empathy, and compassion.
Relieve ADD and ADHD
Children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have too much theta activity and not enough high beta, or gamma activity. A common biofeedback treatment for ADD is to suppress theta activity by increasing beta and gamma waves. Use High focus and Pure Focus.
Better Golf Game
Boosting Gamma wave activity will increase energy, focus and concentration, making it ideal for any kind of sport. Gamma Waves improve hand-eye coordination. Listen to High Focus or Pure Focus to improve your game. Golf, tennis, basketball, volley ball or while you're working out at the gym, try Power Training in the Zone, Breakthrough Training, and Running Meditation.
