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

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.

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