Scientific Quotes - Brain Waves
Dr. Elmer Green, biofeedback pioneer said,“Alpha is finally only an idling state. It’s ten times better than beta when you’re tense, but beyond a certain level of relaxation, it doesn’t have that much to offer by itself. If you want to truly grow, the only way you’re going to do that is through the deeper state of theta. That’s where you can interrogate the unconscious and even gain the ability to reprogram it. The true value of alpha is that it’s a necessary bridge between beta and theta.”
Dr Green, also reported : increased learning ability, creativity, mental clarity, intelligence, and intuition... and positive changes in mental and emotional health. "With the creation of new neural pathways, more choices are available. Herein lies the theoretical explanation for the amazing personality changes researchers have reported in subjects using technology to change brainwave patterns.”
A study by Thomas Budzynski, Ph.D found that college students who used brainwave training technology drastically out performed those that did not in both academic tasks and by GPA.
Neuroscientist Dr Robert Capel: "There is a remarkable generalized effect when brainwave patterns are slowed into the alpha, theta and delta ranges. Slowing of brain wave patterns increases electrical fluctuations in the brain. This changes the neural structure and pushes the brain to reorganize itself at higher, more complex levels of functioning. This reorganization process corresponds to the 1977 Nobel prize winning work of scientist Ilya Prigogine.”
Dr. Suzanne Evans Morris, says, "Theta brainwaves are associated with greater access to internal and external knowledge and intuition in problem solving (it also) encourages hemispheric synchronization, and reduces mind chatter.
Michael Hutchinson, author of Megabrain Power, “research clearly indicates that theta waves increase creativity, super learning, integrative experiences, and memory.”
Candice Pert, Neuroscientist “There's a revolution going on. The present era in neuro-science is comparable to the time when Louis Pasteur first found out that germs cause disease."
