• neural
  • The technique of recording neural electrical activity within the brain from electrochemical readings taken from the scalp originated with the experiments of Richard Caton in 1875, whose findings were developed into electroencephalography (EEG) by Hans Berger in the late 1920s. (wikipedia.org)
  • receptors
  • In 1973, scientists discovered that we have specific receptors in our brain for opiate drugs like heroin and morphine. (care2.com)
  • In 1990, scientists discovered that we have specific receptors in our brain for the active ingredient in marijuana as well, cannabinoids like THC. (care2.com)
  • pathway
  • By using the Neurophone®, one may train the brain pathways to "hear" through the saccule pathway. (phisciences.com)
  • However, to translate these into a biological definition is difficult because no single pathway in the brain is responsible for the generation and regulation of sleep. (wikipedia.org)
  • alpha
  • What sound-waves did you utilise, I prefer Alpha Wave's for Positive Relaxation and Theta Wave's for Deep Sleep Yoga Nidra/Pratyahara effect's. (abovetopsecret.com)
  • EEG is a more portable and convenient, but slightly less accurate way to measure alpha and beta waves in the brain compared other common methods that require you to be laying horizontal in a machine. (zdnet.com)
  • slow
  • If you become anxious, it is likely that this state of conscious awareness is over activated, and you want to slow your waves back down. (psychcentral.com)
  • NREM is considered to be deep sleep (the deepest part of NREM is called slow wave sleep), and is characterized by lack of prominent eye movement or muscle paralysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • During slow-wave sleep, humans secrete bursts of growth hormone. (wikipedia.org)
  • content
  • Google, along with MediaVest are releasing information about ad quality determined by reading brain waves and psychological responses to ads on video content. (zdnet.com)
  • Science
  • A team of researchers, including Steven Middleton and Thomas Knöpfel from the RIKEN Brain Science Institute (BSI), Wako, Miles Whittington from Newcastle University, United Kingdom, and Roger Traub, now at IBM in New York, report these findings in the journal Neuron. (innovations-report.com)
  • Brain Wave is a science fiction novel by Poul Anderson first published in serial form in Space Science Fiction in 1953, and then as a novel in 1954. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sounds
  • CHICAGO, Dec. 1 -- The speed that an autistic child's brain processes sounds, as gauged by magnetoencephalography, may characterize the severity of the condition, researchers reported here today. (medpagetoday.com)
  • parts
  • These brain rhythms may then be conveyed to other parts of the brain to initiate and control the action of reaching out an arm to pick up the pencil. (innovations-report.com)
  • Later she goes into her husband's lab to use an electroconvulsive therapy machine there to destroy parts of her brain, bringing her IQ down to about 150, with which she is more comfortable. (wikipedia.org)
  • responsible
  • In fact, recent work measuring brain waves from the cerebellum, the part of the brain responsible for motor learning, indicates that the cerebellum may communicate with the cerebral cortex to regulate movement. (innovations-report.com)
  • Middleton, Knöpfel and colleagues then used electrical and optical recordings to pinpoint the area of the cerebellum which was responsible for generating the gamma waves and the VFOs. (innovations-report.com)
  • Since in quiet waking the brain is responsible for 20% of the body's energy use, this reduction has an independently noticeable impact on overall energy consumption. (wikipedia.org)
  • uses
  • Especially during non-REM sleep, the brain uses significantly less energy during sleep than it does in waking. (wikipedia.org)
  • understand
  • I wanted to understand brain dynamics and how this understanding could be connected to the real-world experience of mental disorder. (stanford.edu)
  • people
  • These "states" are identifiable through measuring the actual brainwaves of people when such states are induced. (psychcentral.com)
  • By now many people have heard of the experiments at Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research, known as PEAR , in which ordinary people sit in front of a machine and send it an intention-a thought, a prayer, even a wave of love- to behave in a particular way. (beliefnet.com)
  • In most people, one of the four brain waves is dominant most of the time. (beliefnet.com)
  • network
  • The new model combines these traditional methods of diagnosis and treatment with the biological concept of the brain as a network of circuits. (stanford.edu)
