Studies have shown that vibrations from rhythmic sounds have a profound effect on brain activity. In shamanic traditions, drums were used in periodic rhythm to transport the shaman into other realms of reality. The vibrations from this constant rhythm affected the brain in a very specific manner, allowing the shaman to achieve an altered state of mind and journey out of his or her body.

 
In direct correlation, we see similar effects brought on by the constant and rhythmic drone of Tibetan Buddhist chants, which transport the monks and even other listeners into realms of blissful meditation.
Now that technology allows for precise research and studies, science is able to explain this phenomenon, which is now called brainwave entrainment.
 


What is
Brainwave Entrainment?


Brainwave Entrainment refers to the brain’s electrical response to rhythmic sensory stimulation, such as pulses of sound. When the brain is given a stimulus, through the ears, eyes or other senses, it emits an electrical charge in response, called a cortical evoked response. The electrical responses travel through the brain to become what you “see and hear”.


When the brain is presented with a rhythmic stimulus, such as a drum beat for example, the rhythm is reproduced in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm becomes fast and consistent enough, it can start to resemble the natural internal rhythms of the brain, called brainwaves. When this happens, the brain responds by synchronizing its own electric cycles to the same rhythm. This is commonly called the Frequency Following Response.

Frequency Following Response can be useful because brainwaves are very much related to a mental state. For example, a 4 Hz brainwaves is associated with sleep, so a 4 Hz sound patter would help produce the sleep state in your brain. The same concept can be applied to nearly all mental states, including concentration, creativity, and many others. It ca even act as a gateway to exotic or extraordinary experiences, such as deep meditation or lucid dreaming type states.


What is Entrainment?
 


Entrainment is a principle of physics. It is defined as the synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles. The principles of entrainment are universal, appearing in chemistry, neurology, biology, pharmacology, medicine, astronomy and more.

Our Mind Tools are based on brainwave eintrainment. They gently guide the brain into e certain state to fulfill a specific purpose.
