Topic: Frequencies and their effects - general info

I've noticed that a few people (me included) have been asking about the different frequencies used and how you are supposed to know what frequencies to use for what purpose. I'm not sure if SINE has its own informational guide about this, or list of commonly used frequencies, but I do have several links that I personally have found useful in investigating isochronic tones and how to use them. I thought I should post them here, so others who want to make their own programs but don't know where to start can read a little bit more about the different frequencies, and about how brainwave entrainments works in general. Hope that is OK! Here they are:
--------
This page is unfortunately selling something (it's hard to find someone who isn't) but it's the best overall summary I've found of isochronic tones and how they work: http://www.mindamend.com/brainwave-entr … nic-tones/
--------
A sort of master list of frequencies and what various people have found their effects to be, compiled from many sources: http://www.lunarsight.com/freq.htm
--------
A list of frequencies with a focus on helping/curing physical illnesses can be found here: http://www.electroherbalism.com/Bioelec … s/CAFL.htm

A more scientific view of brainwave entrainment in general with links to scientific papers:

---------
And finally, for those who want to get super-scientific, I've compiled a list of journal articles on the topic of brainwave entrainment (most focus on binaural beats, but the concept is the same). Not a ton of research has been done, but there is some out there. You can find links to all the citations and abstracts here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/mync … 6/public/. Clicking on the title will get you the abstract; in some cases there's free full-text available but in most cases to get the full-text you need to go to the journal's site and request it and usually pay for it, unless you work at an institution (like a university) that has a subscription to that journal. There will be a link on the abstract page telling you how to access the full-text if it is available.
---------
PS. (The link above is my "top-level" collection. I also have collections of scientific papers specifically on brainwave entrainment and sleep/mood, which were my two personal problems, and a larger collection of papers on the topic in general that I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with. But if anybody is interested in those, here are the links.
Brainwave Entrainment and sleep/mood: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/mync … 69/public/
Brainwave Entrainment in general: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/mync … 6/public/)

I hope these links help people who are curious find out more!

Re: Frequencies and their effects - general info

Thank you for this list smile I'm sure it will help many users.

I'll move this to the SINE Editor section

Re: Frequencies and their effects - general info

You know, you might want to put it up in "General" or someplace, where people who are not interested in editing or making their own presets but just knowing more about how the whole thing works will see it? I feel like if you're just on the site to find presets and/or info you're not going to look at the Editor section.

Re: Frequencies and their effects - general info

Yea, you have a point, more people might see it if it's there.

Re: Frequencies and their effects - general info

Hey guys - has anyone seen this page or this one - lists of frequency effects from various experiments? I think from scanning through them quickly they are discussing magnetic and electric stimulation, but I am wondering if auditory frequencies would produce similar results? (I actually found these pages in a search for information about Rife frequencies.) Most of the frequencies cited for physical healing are way too high for us to use, like in the thousands, but some would be appropriate. For example:

Stimulate Clarity of Thought / Mental Function: 35 Hz
Stimulate the Stabilization Of Emotional States: 15 Hz
Stimulate The Clearing of Emotional Trauma / Energy Blocks: 15 Hz

I always felt that 15 was a good pulse rate for me (I'm trying to heal depression and fatigue), but it's not cited in any of the usual sources as having any emotional effects. Has anyone else felt more positive and upbeat with a 15 Hz pulse rate? And, moderators/experts, does it make sense that frequencies used in electrical/magnetic experiments would translate to auditory entrainment? Any input welcome!

Re: Frequencies and their effects - general info

I think some frequencies can be used for both, especially the ones in the 1-30Hz range, but electromagnetic fields are probably more effective (and more expensive to do).
