Brainwave entrainment is a technique to influence your brainwaves to achieve various cognitive effects. These effects are associated with certain frequencies of binaural beats. Depending on the task that you are performing, you can use these beats to boost your mood and increase your attention.
Binaural beats have also been shown to be associated with the states of deep sleep (DELTA), light sleep (THETA), and focused thinking (BETA). While brain entrainment has many potential benefits, no scientifically controlled studies have connected brainwave entrainment to the induction of Lucid Dreaming.
The binaural beats used during brainwave entrainment are usually based on four to eight-hundred-hertz frequencies. If listened to while sleeping, these beats have been found to help induce lucid dreams by changing brainwave frequencies.
It is important to note that the most effective binaural beats are those that are used in conjunction with other strategies to improve focus and concentration.
Using binaural beats to reduce stress and anxiety is a simple way to promote relaxation. Binaural beats can reduce stress and anxiety by promoting a hypnogogic state. This state is natural and occurs between wakefulness and sleep. In this state, large numbers of neurons can communicate with each other, which can lead to better problem solving and memory.
One study showed that binaural beats were more effective when used in combination with ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), which was a relaxation response to certain triggers. The study also found that binaural beats were effective at reducing anxiety.
