Brain Waves


More than 150 years ago a H. W. Dover discovered that the brain creates a beat frequency that is the difference between two difference frequencies heard binaurally.

Today, binaural beat technologies are used to produce recordings which, when listened to binaurally, cause the brain to create the common brainwave frequencies known as alpha, beta, delta, theta and gamma brain waves. These brainwaves are associated with various mental and physiological states of consciousness including relaxation, meditation, focused attention, sleep, dreaming, and creative processes.
