"Cognition Enhancer For Clearer and Faster Thinking - Isochronic Tones (Electronic)"
"Cognition Enhancer For Clearer and Faster Thinking -
Isochronic Tones (Electronic)"

"Headphones Required: As this session stimulates each ear with different frequencies, you will need to use headphones to experience the full effect. Alternative background sounds available on MP3 on the above page: Orchestral, Hybrid, World Music, Rain, Brown Noise.
What does this track do? This session stimulates Beta, SMR and Alpha, alternating in 2-minute increments to help keep the user relaxed and engaged. SMR (sensorimotor rhythm) relates to the frequency range between 12-15Hz. It's associated with sensory processing and motor control. Stimulating this can result in relaxed focus and improved attention. This session speeds up the brain while keeping the left hemisphere dominant (good for attention, concentration, reducing emotional response and hyperactivity). ADD and similar disorders are often characterized by "slow-wave" EEG patterns, particularly in the left frontal region. This session stimulates the left brain hemisphere with Beta frequencies and the right with SMR.
Can it be used to help with studying? Yes and if you read through the many comments about this track, you'll see that many people have successfully used it for studying. You can either listen to it while you are studying, to get your brain into a good mental state when you need it. Or if you are someone that gets a bit distracted by music while studying, listen to it just before you begin.
How Loud Should The Volume Be? Set the volume at a level you feel comfortable with. It should be loud enough to hear the isochronic tones, but not so loud that it's uncomfortable for you. Somewhere in the middle is my recommendation.
How To Use This? Use this session in the morning or afternoon, to train your brain for better cognition, such as clearer and faster thinking. You can either sit somewhere quiet and comfortable with your eyes closed and give your brain a nice workout, or you can also listen to this while doing an activity that requires a boost in concentration, like studying.
How long should you listen for to get a good effect? It takes around 6 minutes for your brainwaves to fall in step with the tones and become entrained. It then takes time to be guided along the frequency range used in the track. Listening to about half way through is the minimum in my opinion, but 30 minutes is the optimum length to listen for."
