Scientific experiments carried out on buddhist monks from Tibet have shown a correlation between transcendental mental states and gamma waves.
A recent study took eight long-term Tibetan Buddhist practitioners of meditation and, using electrodes, monitored the patterns of electrical activity produced by their brains as they meditated.
When the monks were told to generate a feeling of compassion during meditation, their brain activity began to fire in a rhythmic, coherent manner, suggesting neuronal structures were firing in harmony.
This was observed at a frequency of 40 Hz, the rhythm of gamma waves. These gamma-band oscillations in the monk’s brain signals were the largest seen in humans.
Conversely, these gamma-band oscillations were scant in novice meditators.
Based on these discoveries, Brainwave Research UK have engineered a new audio technology that safely guides the listeners brainwaves in to the same gamma ranges while also incorporating a time tested Tibetan mindfulness technique which combined creates a new potently profound meditation experience unlike anything before it.
