Gamma waves, the fastest brain waves, are produced by your brain when you're actively digesting information and learning. These brainwaves, which often have a frequency of more than 35 Hz, are evidence that you are paying attention and thinking through problems.
Gamma waves aid attention, focus, sensory binding (smell, sight, and hearing), consciousness, mental processing, and perception under ideal conditions.
When you're actively processing information and learning, your brain creates the fastest of brain waves, gamma waves. These brainwaves, which tend to register above 35 Hz, show that you're focused and solving difficulties.
Neuroscientists believe that gamma waves can connect information from all sections of the brain — the gamma wave originates in the thalamus and flows 40 times per second from the back to the front of the brain — and that the gamma wave influences the entire brain.
The gamma state is one of peak mental and physical performance due to this quick "full sweep" activity. Gamma is the brainwave state that makes you feel like you can accomplish anything.

Recent research conducted by the Center for Neuroscience at the Indian Institute of Science has shown that decreased electrical activity in the brain could be an early warning sign of age-related cognitive decline.
Studies using EEG have shown that people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment have lower levels of gamma brainwave activity than healthy individuals of the same age.
Research Scholar with a Ph.D., Murty Dinavahi, states that...
We found that the intensity of gamma waves decreased in the early stages of age-related cognitive decline...
Alterations in these electrical signals might serve as an early indicator of an impending disease.
Why gamma waves are of such critical significance...
1. Gamma waves are linked to elevated levels of thought and focus, improved concentration, and even improved hand-eye coordination (great for golf and racket sports).
2. Gamma waves provide a number of benefits, including the following:
3. Enhanced cognitive capabilities and capacity for creative problem-solving
4. Enhanced processing of incoming information
5. Memory enhancement
6. Lengthened capacity for focused attention
7. Heightened levels of consciousness and mindfulness
8. Improved cognitive health and immune response in the brain
Therefore, if you find that you are daydreaming, experiencing mental fuzziness, and being unable to concentrate for more than a few minutes...
Or you may have noticed that your memory is getting worse, such as becoming more forgetful and unable to recall information as easily as you once did...
Or even if you have the impression that your cognitive ability is deteriorating, such as when you have a harder time than usual processing information and finding solutions to problems...
Here are some options available to you...
If you want to boost your cognition and possibly slow down the cognitive decline that comes with aging, listening to gamma wave binaural beats for thirty minutes every day is recommended.
Imagine the situation in this way...
If your body is lacking in a particular vitamin or mineral, taking a supplement can help bring your levels back up to normal.
Binaural beat therapy is a supplement that you can take to increase the amount of gamma brainwave activity you experience.
Binaural beats bring the right and left hemispheres of your brain into balance, which in turn increases the level of coherence within the brain.
More specifically, if you listen to Gamma Wave binaural beats while wearing headphones, you will experience an increase in your gamma waves as a result of a phenomenon known as brainwave entrainment. This is when the activity in your brain literally falls into rhythm with the binaural beat.
MeditationLifeSkillsPodcast.com strives to present meditation concepts that connect east and west, tradition and science in a non-sectarian way, from multiple traditions and not promoting any particular technique or method.
One important principle I try to accomplish is to take complex ideas about meditation and the not-so-well understood meditation principles to help you understand how they can fit into your life.
To your success in meditation!
