An emerging form of sound wave technology
Binaural means “both ears,” and binaural beats are created by presenting slightly different frequencies to each ear. What results is a pulse in the brain that is the difference between the two frequencies... the perception of a third tone. This third tone is called a binaural beat.
Binaural beats are said to provide many of the same benefits as meditation: lower stress, increase focus, aid with sleep and relaxation, boost mood, assist with pain management, and foster creativity.
To listen to binaural beats, a person will need a pair of stereo headphones and an MP3 player or another music system.
Sound Waves Creating Brainwave Shifts
What are binaural beats?
Binaural beats are an auditory illusion that occur when you detune a tone and send the two tones of slightly different frequency to each ear separately.
This difference in frequencies creates the illusion of the third sound—a beating rhythm. The brain has been shown to resonate at the same frequency as the binaural beats rhythm. For example, a tone that is de-tuned by 6 Hz for example, will create a resonance in your brain of 6 Hz. We measure 6 Hz to correlate with meditative, calm emotional/cognitive states. Currently, research shows that these states are able to be consistently produced in clinical settings.
Research has shown that in addition to effecting our states of consciousness, binaural beats have the important effect of synchronizing our brain hemispheres. Existing modalities such as EMDR and Neurologic Music Therapy have demonstrated the therapeutic benefits of brain synchronization.
Elizabeth's doctoral dissertation reviews the transformative effects of sound, specifically "The Effects of Auditory Binaural Beats on Consciousness and the Human Nervous System."
She designed a double blind, controlled study and tested her binaural beats formulas in Psytek Labs on the campus of the California Institute for Human Science. Watch a video of the Binaural Beats Pilot Study experiment here.
Her positive test results, published in the peer-reviewed journal “Frontiers in Human Neuroscience,” allow her formulas to be considered qualified as evidence-based formulas.
Listen to Elizabeth's iAwake interview: "Do Binaural Beats Really Entrain the Brain?"
Elizabeth, a professional musician, is writing, producing and working with other artists around the world in creating binaural beats music for all. She custom designs binaural beats formulas in the categories of sleep, relax, focus and move for her music.
