The synchronized graphs of the two response functions for the eight commercials laid end to end (for illustration purposes only) are shown in Exhibit 2, with the different colored areas highlighting the peaks and valleys of the Picture Sorts[R] function and the brain waves
Engagement Index function.
Previously it had been thought that interference with brain waves
and brain chemistry stopped when a call ended.
The P3 wave is part of a series of brain waves
generated when an individual evaluates and responds to a change in the environment--such as changed cues in a social interaction.
During explicit learning tasks, there was an increase in alpha2-beta brain waves
(oscillating at 10-30 hertz) following a correct choice, and an increase delta-theta waves (3-7 hertz) after an incorrect choice.
Fussenegger got the bright idea to use brain waves
to control a lightbulb, which would then switch on a gene in a mouse.
Because brain wave
data can be processed remotely, the company could provide services to anywhere in the world, and as such is an example of the emerging field of telemedicine.
That is, when you and I read the word "yes," we produce brain waves
that are identical enough to be identified with great accuracy using mathematical filtering techniques.
I do not think that it is a coincidence that the Schumann Resonance of 7.83Hz corresponds to the alpha brain wave
, which ranges from seven to 14 cycles per second.
By relying on brain waves
that signal the intent to jam on the brakes, a new technology could shave critical milliseconds off the reaction time, researchers report online July 28 in the Journal of Neural Engineering.
Scientists call this "Transcendental Consciousness." A holistic shift in physiological functioning results from the meditator's settled mind, as measured by reduced oxygen consumption, slower heart rate, decreased stress hormones, and increased EEG brain wave
* Scientists recently reported that brain wave
recordings made in newborn infants could predict which of the children would later develop dyslexia.
During that time, tests measured such features as alertness, brain wave
patterns, and blood concentrations of hormones.
