It is an optimal time to program the mind for success and it also heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration. It is the gateway to your subconscious mind and lies at the base of your conscious awareness. The voice of Alpha is your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7. It is the realm of your subconsciousness and only experienced momentarily as you drift off to sleep from Alpha and wake from deep sleep from Delta. It is said that a sense of deep spiritual connection and unity with the universe can be experienced at Theta.
Unlike your other brain waves, the elusive voice of Theta is a silent voice. It is at the Alpha-Theta border, from 7Hz to 8Hz, where the optimal range for visualization, mind programming and using the creative power of your mind begins. Delta is the realm of your unconscious mind, and the gateway to the universal and collective unconscious.
Information received here is often unavailable at the conscious level. Hence, not having enough deep sleep is detrimental to your health in more ways than one. While little is known about this state of mind, initial research shows Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight and high-level information processing. SmartNews History. History Archaeology.

Ask Smithsonian. After the mistake was noticed by the subject, there was a decrease in alpha waves as the subject began paying more attention.
This study hopes to promote the use of wireless EEG technology on employees in high-risk fields, such as air traffic controlling, to monitor alpha wave activity and gauge the attention level of the employee. As demonstrated by Dr. Adrian R. Upton  , it is possible for extraneous sources ambient fluctuations detected with a mound of Jell-O in Upton's experiments to cause signals to appear on an EEG readout, causing false signals to be interpreted as healthy alpha waves.

This finding suggests that it is possible that a non-flat EEG could lead to the interpretation that a patient is still living when in fact he or she is long dead. Sometimes it's claimed Jell-O brainwaves are identical to a healthy adult's.
That's clearly a stretch, but the Jell-O EEG readings do look pretty similar to a normal human alpha rhythm. Alpha waves are observed when a patient is awake and resting with eyes closed, and in some kinds of sleep and reversible coma. True, the Jell-O waves are a little slower and of much lower amplitude, barely within normal human limits, but that doesn't tell you much by itself.
Hypoxia, encephalitis, and other medical conditions can cause reduced frequency and amplitude, as can drug use. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with Alpha particle.
