We have stop using MP3's -- There are some doubts about the effectiveness of MP3s in binaural sounds, because the MP3 audio format is compressed and does not contain frequency information that cannot be heard by the human ear. In other words, frequencies below 20 Hz do not exist in MP3 files. This issue has led to some confusion as it is precisely those frequencies that correspond to most brain waves.

Binaural sounds: the reason they really modify consciousness

The brain is made up of billions of specialized cells called neurons, these use electricity to communicate with each other. Groups of millions of neurons send signals in a coordinated manner, all at once, which produces a huge amount of electrical activity in the brain that can be detected and measured by electroencephalography.

The combination of the electrical activity of the brain is called the brain wave pattern.

The different frequencies of brain waves.

With the investigation of brain waves it was discovered that the electrical activity of the brain changes according to the activity that the person is doing.

For example, when we sleep, the brain waves are very different from when we are awake, so also the brain waves vary if we feel happiness, peace, sadness, nervousness, focus, dispersion, insecurity, confidence, etc. Each brain or emotional state corresponds to a pattern of brain waves.

Behind the binaural sounds lies a complex neuronal process that reacts to the electricity they produce. The whole brain is stimulated by the frequencies and the synchrony of these sounds and responds to it, either with reflexes or through a high cognitive level. Synctuition's original proposal (a site created to have the best binaural experience) handles the theory that these binaural sounds stimulate intuition, since it works with "computational" capabilities generated by a specific type of brain activity. Thus, although intuition seems to only work automatically, it is actually part of the complex electrical process that occurs in the brain.

Through the years and with the advances of science and research it has been discovered that brain waves have a very strong relationship with the health and mood of people.

It has also been discovered that these brain waves can be induced to the brain through binaural sounds, that is, with binaural sounds we can make our brain coordinate with a certain wave pattern to reproduce different moods and health.

Delta (0.2 Hz - 3 Hz)

Delta waves are those of the lowest range and virtually disconnect the mind from your body. When the dominant brain wave is the Delta, your body is in a healing state and allows you to reset your internal clocks. Dreams and internal experiences cannot be remembered in this state.

Theta (3 Hz - 8Hz)

It corresponds to the state of lucid dreams and a deep state of physical relaxation. Theta waves can also be used for hypnosis and self-programming.

This waves are found during deep levels of relaxation, meditation, hypnosis, and enhanced creativity. They are also found during the transition from wakefulness to sleep and sometimes during dreaming. Spending increased amounts of time in a Theta state can significantly improve your well-being and overall health, and result in a reduced need for sleep.

Alpha Waves (8Hz - 12Hz)

Awake and relaxed, it does not allow much information to be processed very quickly.

People are in this state naturally when we wake up in the morning and also just before going to sleep. When you close your eyes to the brain it automatically starts to produce more alpha waves this is even more powerful if with our eyes closed we look slightly upwards.

Meditation begins with the alpha state so the primary objective of people who like meditation is to enter this state, the fact of using sounds with brain waves makes entering the state of meditation extremely easy.

When the brain is in an Alpha state, the mind is very receptive both internally and externally, it is an absorbing mental state and can also be used to improve the effectiveness of self-hypnosis, mental reprogramming and other techniques of the same tenor. .

Beta Waves (12Hz - 38Hz) The main types of brain waves and their associated states are:

It corresponds to a well awake mental state; It is usually the mental state of most people during the day and most of their waking life.

Some people lack sufficient beta activity, this can cause mental or emotional disorders such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, insomnia, etc.

Stimulating beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attention and concentration.

Gamma (40 Hz or higher)

Gamma brainwave patterns are the most rapid in frequency and receive the least attention in research. Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight, high-level information processing, and the highest state of focus possible. They also clear mental fog and boost energy. Gamma waves have been known to aid in increasing hand-eye coordination, and are ideal for improving your golf game or other athletic performance.

Use of BINAURAL SOUNDS in Medicine and Psychopathology:

Outside the attention deficit disorder and developmental disorders, it is in psychopathology and behavioral medicine that the effects of binaural sounds have been the most studied.

Binaural sounds of a frequency difference of 1 to 4 Hz cause the appearance of delta waves that induce sleep as well as phenomena of awake sleep (Davis, 1938).

There are some publications also related to his interest in surgery (anesthesia) and pain control. Thus, two recent publications in the journal «Anaesthesia» describe, - the effects on the dose of anesthetic necessary during a light surgical intervention, the listening of binaural sounds that significantly decrease this dose compared to the listening of neutral sounds (Kliemptf and AL, 1999) ; -the other effects of listening to binaural sounds on the pre-operative anxiety of patients (Padmanabhan, Hildreth & laws, 2005). In this study, the anxiety of the patients before the intervention was measured with the help of the STAI scale, Spielberger State / Characteristic anxiety; Anxiety was significantly lower in patients who heard binaural sounds than in those who heard neutral sounds.

On the other hand, it was revealed (Cox, 1996), that listening to binaural sounds of alpha frequency reduced blood pressure and heart rate from 4 to 10%, decreased the sensation of pain by 50% per term. on average, the blood percentage of mélatonine decreased by 6% on average while the percentages of blood beta endorphins increased by 14% on average. In the same subjects, Cox notices a serotonin increase of 23% so a norépinephrine decrease of 18%.

Peniston and Kulkosky (1989) highlighted the physiological effects due to training by slow brain waves alpha and theta, in particular a blood increase of beta endorphins in alcoholic patients.

«Binaural sounds of a frequency difference of 16 to 24 Hz induce the production of Beta waves. Consequently, they tend to increase concentration and alertness (Monroe, 1985). They also improve mnésiques results (Kennerly, 1994). Brain training increases the beta waves that are generally used for many years in the treatment of attention deficit disorder as well as in the remédiation of care in traumatized cranial patients. These protocols were the subject of numerous publications that we will discuss in more detail in our subsequent investigations ».

«Binaural sounds whose frequency difference is 4 to 8 Hz induce theta waves whose Schacter (1977) elaborated the list of effects in a thorough analysis. They are associated with subjective states of deep relaxation, meditation and creativity (Hiew, 1995). Theta waves favor learning by improving concentration and focus -without price- on a task (Pawelek, 1985) ».

How to use binaural beats:

To listen to binaural beats, a person will need a pair of stereo headphones.

As the leading authorities in psychiatric treatment have no recommendations for binaural beats, it is usually the producer of the tape that makes the suggestions for use.

People should follow the instructions carefully. Those who do not see any reduction in anxiety might benefit from trying a different producer, type of sound, or frequency.

It is important to avoid using binaural beats therapy while undertaking tasks that require alertness and full attention, such as driving.

A 2019 review of 22 studies found a significant link between more prolonged exposure to binaural beat tapes and reduced anxiety. It also found that practitioners did not need to mask the beats with white noise for the treatment to have an effect.

Some researchers have even suggested that 10 minutes of exposure to a 6 Hz frequency could induce a brain state similar to that during meditation.

Although there is little evidence of any adverse side effects of using binaural beat therapy, a literature review of studies identified conflicting data, so further research is necessary.
