With the discovery of brainwaves came the discovery that electrical activity in the brain will change depending on what the person is doing. For instance, the brainwaves of a sleeping person are vastly different than the brainwaves of someone wide awake. Over the years, more sensitive equipment has brought us closer to figuring out exactly what brainwaves represent and with that, what they mean about a person's health and state of mind

The Table Shows The Known Brainwave Types And Their Mental States

Wave Frequency Associated State


27Hz and up

Gamma is associated with the formation of ideas, language and memory processing, and various types of learning. Gamma waves have been shown to disappear during deep sleep induced by anesthesia, but return with the transition back to a wakeful state.


12Hz – 38Hz

Wide awake. This is generally the mental state most people are in during the day and most of their waking lives. Usually, this state in itself is uneventful, but don’t underestimate its importance. Many people lack sufficient beta activity, which can cause mental or emotional disorders such as depression, ADD and insomnia. Stimulating beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attentiveness and concentration.


8Hz – 12Hz

Awake but relaxed and not processing much information. When you get up in the morning and just before sleep, you are naturally in this state. When you close your eyes your brain automatically starts producing more alpha waves.

Alpha is usually the goal of experienced meditators, but to enter it using Mind WorkStation is incredibly easy. Since alpha is a very receptive, absorbent mental state, you can also use it for effective self-hypnosis, mental re-programming and more.

For more information on alpha waves, see the Alpha Brain Waves Info graphic.


3Hz – 8Hz

Light sleep or extreme relaxation.
Theta is also be used for hypnosis and self-programming using pre-recorded suggestions.


0.2Hz – 3Hz

Deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the slowest band of brainwaves. When your dominant brainwave is delta, your body is healing itself and “resetting” its internal clocks. You do not dream in this state and are completely unconscious.

Below Are Some Other Types of Brainwaves:

A. Sensory Motor Rhythm

Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) belongs to wave type of low beta with the frequencies of 12-16 hertz. Still not many in-depth researches conducted regarding this wave. The existing research results show that patients of epilepsy, autism, or ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) fail to produce SMR type waves, because they cannot concentrate or focused themselves to one certain thing.. Therefore, the therapy against the above diseases may be conducted through stimulating the brain to be able to produce SMR waves. And the method introduced is called neuro feedback.

B. Epsilon Wave

The epsilon wave is an advanced research brainwave harmonic. Epsilon waves have been measured at 0.5Hz or below. The wave has been reported in hands on healing and shamanic trance states.

C. Solfeggio Wave

Solfeggio Wave Frequencies are a "lost" set of harmonic tones that have been claimed to be beneficial to the mind and are receiving renewed interest of late, mainly by people interested in how they influence the mind. they are basically sound frequencies that correspond with the tones Ut, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La. From the previous description about brain wave, it's clear that the one that produces or transmit the brain wave is the brain itself.. This is similar with the scattering of radio wave, though of course, the type and frequency differ.

Detailed Summary

  • Gamma wave is produced by the brain's cortex visual part.
  • Beta wave is produced by the brain's motor cortex or cerebral cortex part existing in the large brain.
  • Alpha wave is produced by the brain's lobes occipital and thalamus.
  • Theta wave is produced by the brain's hippocampus part.
  • Delta wave is produced by the brain's thalamus and reticular formation part.

Beside being the wave transmitter, brain also functions to receive waves. Wave receipt by the brain is called resonance. Resonance is the event of joint vibrating of a thing due to the influence of other nearby thing's vibration. So, for the brain, receiving a wave shall mean the brain jointly conducts the activity of scattering the wave caused by the stimulating wave from outside the brain. The condition is that, the wave coming in from outside shall have the same frequency with the brain wave.

This is the basic principle of different kinds of methods in activating the human brain, including blindfold activation. The brain is stimulated with certain wave frequency as necessary. For instance, the wave functions to improve thinking capability, remembering things, quick understanding, meditation, supernatural activities, therapy, or health improvement, etc.
