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.
Neurofeedback assessments are used to capture information about an individual's brain wave
Meanwhile, A Japanese research institute says it can tell what people are dreaming about by analyzing their brain waves
Once the user puts on the prototype, it begins recording brain waves
with very low set-up time.
Soon, the brain "learns" to operate within the normal brain wave
activity ranges, and the patient often shows marked improvement.
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.
Is it unreasonable to think that the brain wave
pattern has also changed when the firing of cells that create a perception has changed?
The scans found that disturbed brain wave
activity lasted for up to an hour after the phone call ended.
Farwell's device zeroes in on the activity of P300, a type of brain wave
that "activates" when a person recognizes a familiar object, such as a crime weapon.
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.
People in one group with abnormal brain wave
patterns react abnormally to light stimulation, while those in a second group with normal brain wave
patterns also react abnormally to such stimulation.
