Brainwave balancing with horizontal rotation


UiTM researchers are studying the effectiveness of Horizontal Rotation (HR) for brainwave balancing. Initial results show brainwaves were more synchronized after five sessions of HR

The area of enhancing the human potential and well-being indicates that there is an increasing need to ensure that life is always in balance in order to be happy and healthy. Previous studies have indicated either directly or indirectly, a balanced life begins with a balanced mind or thinking that relates directly to the brain.

Researchers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, UITM carried out a study to attempt to evaluate the effectiveness of Horizontal Rotation (HR) for brainwave balancing by analysing electroencephalogram (EEG) signals using Independent Component Analysis coupled with intelligent signal processing methods.

Currently, many methods and devices are available in the market to promote brainwave balancing, for instance auditory and visual techniques called binaural beats and dream machine uses sound and colours to balance the brainwaves.

However, the technique of using controlled movement or rotation with the adoption of proper procedures have not been found. The purpose of this research is to determine whether a new method called HR could balance the brainwave.

Brainwave signals are recorded using (EEG) before and after participants undergo HR treatment in a controlled environment. The brainwave signals are then stored in a computer for offline analysis. Paired T-test and correlation analysis was used to analyze the EEG signal.

The results from this experiment presented evidence that brainwaves were more synchronized after five sessions of HR. Paired T-test successfully shows that the correlation values after HR increases for all the frequency bands with highest increment for the Delta Band.

Im Focus: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
