Top Brainwave Technology Products

By Charles Hopkins Published 01/17/2007 | Health

As the most important organ in the body, so much is still not understood about the way the brain functions. Since it was first discovered that the left and right halves of the brain could work separately from each other, a lot of research has been taking place to discover what would happen, if the left and right halves of the brain were able to work simultaneously. This concept is called brain synchronization and the process of trying to get both the left and the right half of the brain to work together is called brain entrainment.

There are numerous brainwave technology products available, with the main goal of training the left and right halves of your brain to cooperate. Brainwave technology products will influence the different wave patterns produced by the brain. So far, it is known the brain produces four patterns called Alpha waves, Beta waves, Delta waves, and Theta waves. Each wave pattern would have its own distinctive "hills and valley" appearance on an EEG measuring brain wave activity. As a result of the amount of variety of brainwave technology products, it is recommended to discover which one is right for you.

What Brainwave Technology Products Are Available?

Brainwave Audiotapes

The most common of the brainwave technology products that people choose to ensure brain entrainment are audiotapes. This is one of the best ways to train your brain to use the left and right sides together. When used correctly, the audiotapes are reported to train the brain to function at a higher level and produce results at a higher.  Studies conducted with the use of brainwave audiotapes have shown that using this method will help people develop a more creative approach to tasks to be completed.

The Brainwave Flasher

As the name implies, the Brainwave Flasher does not use audio frequencies to produce brain entrainment, but instead works on the principle of using light to coordinate both left and right halves of the brain.

The way in which the Brainwave Flasher works is quite simple. Light is flashed based on a selection of different frequencies. These frequencies are the same frequencies used when listening to the audiotapes. Using the Brainwave Flasher, the brain is able to undergo brain synchronization in the process of photostrobic entrainment. Photostrobic entrainment is not widely used as audio entrainment, but research has shown it to be effective in training the left and right halves of the brain to work together efficiently. However, it should be noted that this form of entrainment is contraindicated in people with a history of epilepsy.

The Brainwave Generator

The Brainwave Generator is quite a popular brainwave technology product found on the Internet. It is available free to anyone who would like to use, and this is an added incentive for its popularity. The Brainwave Generator, as the name implies, can be used to generate brain entrainment. It can be downloaded with a series of frequencies that the user can select from. The Brainwave Generator also gives the user the option of creating their own frequencies to be used for brain entrainment.
