Multiple studies have suggested that regular use of BrainTap can improve sleep, mood and general wellbeing.

Brainwave Power of College Golf Players

One study found that use of BrainTap for Brainwave Entrainment combined with Transcranial Photobiomodulation improved the Brainwave Power of College Golf Players.

About the Device

The BrainTap device and associated application combine five technologies to achieve brainwave entertainment.

What is Brainwave Entrainment?

Brainwave entrainment, also known as neural synchronization, is a method that uses external stimuli, such as sounds, lights, or vibrations at specific frequencies, to guide the brain, in a gentle and secure manner, into specific brainwave patterns and states of consciousness, such as relaxation, meditative states, focused attention, creativity, or sleep.

This process works because the brain has a natural propensity to adjust its dominant frequency to align with the rhythm of external periodic stimuli, a principle called frequency following response.

Brainwave patterns are typically divided into five different categories or frequency ranges, each associated with different states of consciousness, by targeting these specific frequencies, brainwave entrainment is intended to induce such states:

Delta Waves

(0.5-4 Hz)

Delta waves are the slowest brainwaves, typically associated with deep, dreamless sleep and healing. Delta brainwaves are prevalent during deep meditation and restorative sleep.

Theta Waves

(4-8 Hz)

Theta waves are associated with light sleep, deep relaxation, and are prominent during dream states and deep meditation. Theta waves can also be connected to creativity, intuition, daydreaming, and recalling emotions and sensations.

graph2

Alpha Waves

(8-12 Hz)

Alpha waves are linked to a state of wakeful relaxation. These waves are dominant during quiet, reflective moments, enhancing creativity and reducing depressive symptoms. Alpha states are often associated with mindfulness meditation.

graph3

Beta Waves

(12-30 Hz)

Beta waves are associated with a state of awake alertness, logical thinking, and problem-solving. Prolonged presence of beta waves may lead to stress and anxiety.

graph4

Gamma Waves

(30-100 Hz)

Gamma waves are associated with high-level information processing and consolidation of information. These waves are linked to consciousness, peak focus, and learning.

Ease of Use

Brainwave entrainment generally involves simple tasks like listening to specific sound frequencies or observing rhythmic light patterns, necessitating no special skills or training to utilize most brainwave entrainment techniques.

Low Cost

As opposed to many therapeutic interventions, brainwave entrainment is typically cost-effective. There are a variety of affordable applications and devices available, and some resources can even be accessed free of charge.

Home Use

Brainwave entrainment can be performed at one’s own convenience, providing a suitable option for those with hectic schedules, transportation difficulties, or those who prefer the comfort and privacy of their home environment.

Non-invasive

Brainwave entrainment is a non-invasive method, implying it doesn’t necessitate surgeries, injections, or any other procedures that involve skin penetration.

Self-directed

Users are often in control of their own sessions, determining the timing, location, and adjustable settings to their comfort levels.

Side-effects

Generally, brainwave entrainment exhibits fewer side effects than treatments that involve medication. However, rare possible side effects might include nausea, headaches and increased heart rate.

Potential Wide-ranging Benefits

Brainwave entrainment has been researched for a variety of purposes, including enhancing focus, reducing stress, augmenting creativity, and managing symptoms of conditions like anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
