Many researchers have noted a discrepancy between the EEG of subjects with learning disabilities or ADD and normal subjects. Typically, the ADD subjects were characterized by brain activity on the slower end of the frequency spectrum “The most important characteristic is either an excessive amount of theta activity, a lack of beta activity or a combination of these.
Delta Brain Waves ( O.5 to 4Hz)
0.5 Hz - Relaxation, helps soothe headaches
0.5 - 1.5 Hz - Pain relief. Endorphin release
0.9 Hz - Euphoric feeling
1 Hz - Well being. Harmony and balance
2.5 Hz - Production of endogenous opiates (pain killers, reduce anxiety)
2.5 Hz - Relieves migraine pain. Produces endogenous opiates
3.4 Hz - Helps achieve restful sleep
3.5 Hz - Feeling of unity with everything. Whole being regeneration
3.9 Hz - Self renewal, enhanced inner awareness
4.0 Hz - Enkephalin release for reduced stress
4.0 Hz - Allows brain to produce enkaphalins, all natural pain killer
4.0 Hz - Full memory scanning. Releases enkephalins
4.0 Hz - Vital for memory and learning. Problem solving, object naming
1 - 3 Hz - Profound relaxation, restorative sleep. Tranquillity and peace
Theta Brain Waves ( 4 to 8 Hz)
4.5 Hz - Brings about Shamanic/Tibetan state of consciousness, Tibetan chants.
4.9 Hz - Induce relaxation and deeper sleep
4.9 Hz - Introspection. Relaxation, meditation
5 Hz - Reduces sleep required. Theta replaces need for extensive dreaming
5.35 Hz - Allows relaxing breathing, free and efficient
5.5 Hz - Inner guidance, intuition
6.5 Hz - Centre of Theta frequency. Activates creative frontal lobe
7.5 Hz - Activates creative thought for art, invention, music. Problem solving
7.5 Hz - Ease of overcoming troublesome issues
7.83 Hz - Schumann earth resonance. Grounding, meditative, Leaves you revitalized
3 - 8 Hz - Deep relaxation, meditation. Lucid dreaming
3 - 8 Hz - Increased memory, focus, creativity
4 - 7 Hz - Profound inner peace, emotional healing. Lowers mental fatigue
4 - 7 Hz - Deep meditation, near-sleep brainwaves.
Alpha brain waves ( 8 to 12Hz)
8- 10 Hz Super-learning new information, memorisation, not comprehension.
8.22 Hz - Associated with the mouth. Brings creativity
10 Hz - Enhanced serotonin release. Mood elevation, arousal, stimulant
10 Hz - Provides relief from lost sleep, improves general mood
10 Hz - Mood elevator. Used to dramatically reduce headaches
10 Hz - Clarity, subconscious correlation. Releases serotonin
11 Hz - Relaxed yet awake state
12 Hz - Centering, mental stability.
11 - 14 Hz - Increased focus and awareness
12 - 14 Hz - Learning frequency, good for absorbing information passively
Beta brain waves ( 13 to 30Hz)
14 Hz - Awakeness, alert. Concentration on tasks, Focusing, vitality.
16 Hz - Bottom of hearing range. Releases oxygen/calcium into cells
12 - 15 Hz - Relaxed focus, improved attentive abilities
13 - 27 Hz - Promotes focused attention toward external stimuli
13 - 30 Hz - Problem solving, conscious thinking
18-24 Hz — Euphoria, can result in headaches, anxiety.
