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.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
