What Is Whole Brain Synchronization?

By Charles Hopkins Published 01/17/2007 | Health

The concept of "whole brain synchronization" is quite an interesting one, and as more studies are completed on it, it has helped us to understand more about how the human brain functions on a daily basis. In order to understand what whole brain synchronization is it is necessary to discuss how the brain normally functions. Therefore, it can be said that usually the left and right parts of the brain do not work simultaneously with each other, and a person's brain will favor one side or the other depending how the predominant type of work they do. But with whole brain synchronization, both halves of the brain are able to function and work together simultaneously.

When whole brain synchronization occurs, the left and right halves of the human brain are able will be coordinated at the same frequency. When this occurs, the neuronal cells of the brain are able to conduct the electrical activity of the brain more rapidly, leading to increased brain function.

The reason why whole brain synchronization has become so popular is due to its ability to increase the function of the brain. When each half of the brain is able to work simultaneous, the brain performs at a much higher level, compared to when the left and right halves of the brain are uncoordinated.

Scientists have discovered that whole brain synchronization is more likely to occur during periods when the brain is going through a very creative moment. Studies have also suggested that the success of an individual might be directly related to how synchronized both hemispheres of us brain might be.

In order to develop whole brain synchronization, it would be necessary to try and train the brain everyday to simultaneously use each half. When the brain is stimulated to increase its conduction of nerve impulses through its neuronal cells. This in turn leads to new dendritic pathways being formed, and the brain generally functioning at a higher level.

It is possible to train your brain to become synchronized. This can be done using various audio techniques available. Current research has shown that the use of music at certain frequencies is one way to train your brain to develop whole brain synchronization with both halves working together.

It is quite interesting how whole brain synchronization can be obtained by having the person listen daily to audio playing at a certain megahertz per second. When the audio is played, the brain is shown to emit Theta waves, when the person is hooked up to an EEG machine. Theta waves are one pattern of activity produced by the brain during a particular period. A Theta wave pattern on EEG is not only produced when listening to a whole brain synchronization audio, but this wave pattern is also produced when the brain is being creative, is extremely relaxed, or experiencing pleasure.

In this way, it can be seen that training the brain to carry out whole brain synchronization will stimulate a higher intensity of creativity and thought processes.
