No pulling legs. What is binaural music?

The urge to become better is natural for a human being.

What if I tell you that it is possible to reduce learning time?
Or sleep needs?
What if I tell you that it is possible to learn how to meditate?
And without exhausting trainings!
What if I tell you that all this can be achieved via simple proccess of music listening?

Am I nuts? ) Ok, here we go with facts:
(if you find the following text too difficult to understand - skip it, yes, you can, and go directly here - Effects caused by binaural music and then here - How to start..

The ability of human brain to follow and respond to external stimulus like flashes of  light and sounds was discovered in 1950-s. At that time the technology of EEG (electroencephalography) was still developing. In simple words, the technology is used to measure brain's electrical vibrations from the surface of the scalp. All that stuff led to invention of effective methods of brain stimulation.

The easiest way of applying stimulus to the brain is via ears and eyes. Since humans cannot hear sounds low enough to be useful for brain stimulation, special techniques must be used. One such special technique used is called binaural beats.

If the left ear is presented with a steady tone of 495Hz and the right ear a steady tone of 505Hz, these two tones combine in the brain. The difference, 10Hz, is perceived by the brain and is a very effective stimulus for brainwave entrainment. This 10Hz is formed entirely by the brain. When using stereo headphones, the left and right sounds do not mix together until in your brain. The frequency difference, when perceived by brain this way, is called a binaural beat.

So what?

Interest in binaural beats can be classified into two categories. First, they are of interest to neurophysiologists investigating the sense of hearing. Second, that binaural beats may influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and can be used to produce relaxation and other health benefits.
So, binaural beats may influence functions of the brain besides those related to hearing. This phenomenon is called frequency following response. Binaural beats have been credibly documented to entrain brainwave rhythms, according to the frequency following response, at various sites in the brain. Binaural beat stimulation has been used fairly extensively to induce a variety of states of consciousness, there has been some work done in regards to the effects of these stimuli on relaxation, focus, attention, and states of consciousness.

Thank you for sharing your understandings. I enjoy your blog so hope you will keep writing. I would also like to find out where I can find binaural music that has been tested for frequencies- I mean if a person is in alpha mode , for example patients with brain injuries, what type of music could help them achieve some level of Beta waves/mode?

Does binaural music come tagged in this manner? i.e. would it show, what wave it is?

I am totally fascinated by this subject.

I love the concept. I just bought a CD of Binaural Music and will test it out today. They claim that it is "the world's first digital drug".

I will comment back to let you know if the subject is as interesting practically, as theoretically...
