  Exploring the Brain and Brain Waves
Brain waves are generated by the building blocks of your brain -- the individual cells called neurons.
Brain waves are measured in cycles per second (Hertz; Hz is the short form).
For general health and wellness purposes, we need all the brain wave types, but we need our brain to have the flexibility and resilience to be able to balance the brain wave activity as necessary for what we are doing at any one time.

 Brain Fingerprinting - Research
A specific, electrical brain wave response, known as a P300, is emitted by the brain within a fraction of a second when an individual recognizes and processes an incoming stimulus that is significant or noteworthy.
The P300 electrical brain wave response is widely known and accepted in the scientific community.
The entire Brain Fingerprinting system is under computer control, including presentation of the stimuli, recording of electrical brain activity, a mathematical data analysis algorithm that compares the responses to the three types of stimuli and produces a determination of "information present" or "information absent," and a statistical confidence level for this determination.

 A-device-to-monitor-and-alter-brain-waves-(Gordon)---
The interference waveform which is representative of the brain wave activity is re-transmitted by the brain to a receiver where it is demodulated and amplified.
The present art for measurement of brain waves employs electroencephalographs including probes with sensors which are attached to the skull of the subject under study at points proximate to the regions of the brain being monitored.
The modulated interference wave is re-transmitted by the brain and received by an antenna at a remote station where it is demodulated, and processed to provide a profile of the suject's brain waves.

 BrainWaves
Brain waves are the electrical fluctuations in the brain associated with various states of cortical arousal (thinking, learning, relaxing, recuperating etc.).
Brain waves are all oscillating electrical voltages in the brain, but they are very tiny voltages, just a few millionths of a volt.
Research has demonstrated that the brain has the quality of neural-plasticity, (able to change and learn new pathways) therefore our brain can be trained to produce certain brainwaves at certain parts of the brain thus enabling us to move from one state of cortical arousal to another depending on our goals.

 Brain wave Functions Alpha  Beta Theta Brainwaves
It is well known that the brain is an electrochemical organ; researchers have speculated that a fully functioning brain can generate as much as 10 watts of electrical power.
When the brain is aroused and actively engaged in mental activities, it generates beta waves.
These beta waves are of relatively low amplitude, and are the fastest of the four different brainwaves.

 Floatation Tanks effect on Brainwaves
When the brain is generating mostly beta waves, whose frequency is about 13-30 Hz (that is, a rhythm of 13 to 30 cycles per second), it is in what is called its waking rhythm: The brain is focusing on the world outside itself, or dealing with concrete, specific problems.
As the brain waves slow down they take on a more coherent rhythm, and can be seen on the EEG as a regular sawtooth pattern at about 8 - 12 Hz.
These waves are often present when the brain is alert but unfocused, and most people generate alpha waves when their eyes are closed, even if only bursts of one or two seconds.

 Electroencephalograms (EEG or Brain Wave Tests) - My Child Has - Children's Hospital Boston
The EEG records the ever-present, ongoing electrical activity generated by the neurons in the brain, hence it is also referred to as a "brain wave" test.
Abnormal EEG signals include little electrical "explosions" such as the spikes, spike and wave, and sharp waves that are common in epilepsy even when children are not in the midst of a clinical seizure.
Here brain signals are similarly collected from the scalp and amplified but are fed into a computer (i.e., digitized) and then interpreted by viewing them not on paper but on the computer screen.
