Isochronic Tones – The Basics

Isochronic Tones are an effective method of brainwave entrainment. They are short sounds which are repeated in quick succession. They are equally spaced and of equal length and volume. The speed is dependent upon the frequency of the targeted brainwaves. To induce a state of relaxation, for example, both brain hemispheres must be synchronised to […]

Do Isochronic Tones Have Entraining Effects on the Brain?

Content: Does listening to isochronic tones have any effect on the management of pain, or as a treatment modality for SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder? This article looks at these questions critically but supplies links to clinical studies that indicates that the potential of brainwave entrainment as a medical intervention is grossly neglected.

Pulsating Frequencies Are A Tool To Enhance The Biological Nervous System

Writer: Michael H. Thaut Source: New York Academy of Science (2003), 999: p. 364-373 Content: By looking deep into the cortical and subcortical networks of the brain, the researchers managed to uncover further insight of brainwave entrainment. They linked rhythm and music directly to the cerebellum but also had some major limitations to their findings. […]

Successful Brainwave Entrainment

Writer: G. Papagiannakis, E. Argento, E. Baka, M. Maniadakis, P. Trahanias Source: Foundation for research and technology – Hellas (FORTH) Institute of computer science, Technical Report Nr. 458 Content: The study acknowledges the hypnotic effects of binaural beats, but states that they are less effective in achieving brain entrainment. Isochronic tones, however, seem to be […]
