"The 5 types of brainwaves
Now here’s where it gets fun: Brainwaves are grouped into five distinct categories, each of which is associated with a very specific type of task and mental state.
The most high-frequency—and, some may say, high-vibe—of the bunch are gamma waves. “Gamma waves are often associated with insight, peak focus, and expanded consciousness,” says Winters. “These waves are generated when the brain is learning new information, sharply concentrating, or storing memories.” She adds that this “hyper-focused, tranquil attention” is characteristic of Zen meditators and master musicians.
A step down are beta waves, which is what most of us experience most of the time in our always-on society. “Their upside is that they allow us to concentrate hard on tasks at hand—and they’re critical when we read, write, and socialize,” says Winters. (It’s the frequency of the hustle, basically.) “The downside of beta waves is that they can zap our energy and reduce emotional awareness and creativity.”
Once we get home at the end of the day, if we’re lucky, we shift into a relaxed, reflective alpha wave pattern. “If you daydream, wind down for bed, or sit down with a good book, your brain is likely in an alpha state,” says Winters. On the other hand, if your brain has trouble shifting from beta to alpha—a stress-induced phenomenon called “alpha blocking”—you could suffer from insomnia, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms, says Winters.
Finally, once you fall asleep, you experience theta waves (the ones associated with dreaming) and delta waves (which promote deep, restorative, dreamless slumber.) Interestingly, theta waves are also linked with being in that elusive, hypnotic flow state associated with peak performance, as well as the autopilot mode we shift into when we’re doing something we’ve done a million times before, like driving home from work on a familiar route. “[People can] have flashes of insight or bursts of creativity when in these flow states because their behaviors are often so automatic that they can mentally disengage and just be,” explains Winters. So that explains why I have all my best ideas in the shower… "

Clean and simple app! Should add more tips for each waive!!
Very great app. Straight to the needs! High recommendation. However if the developer can add some meaning and tips for each brain structure does ! Then it will be worthy and useful. Because i have to back up to Google to search for each meaning and tips. That is my opinion to develop more for this app! Thank you!
Developer Response ,
Hi Zoisuper , thank you so much for your valuable comment.
If I'm not wrong you are asking the description of brain waves in detail .
If so , you can see this info by clicking little info icon which is on top left of the screen.You can open it by clicking this small icon and close it again when you wish.
I absolutely love this app! After a long stressful day it only takes a minute or two, at the most, listening to the app to relax the mind. I have it set on continuous play and listen to it faithfully every night. I’m able to sleep peacefully all through the night and wake energized and ready for the day!
It’s simple easy to understand also easy to work. There’s no packages to buy other than just the one ($.99) for taking off adds and continuous play. I wish everything could be this simple and useful at the same time. Great job!!
