Binaural Beats

PUBLICATION   |   Nature Scientific Reports  |  (2023)13:11079

There are thousands of recordings on platforms like YouTube of acoustic stimuli used to improve cognitive processes. Extremely popular are the so-called binaural beats, or synchronous rumblings. In a nutshell, this form of brain stimulation involves delivering tonal sounds of different frequencies to each ear, which, when interacting, produce the sensation of binaural rumbling. The frequencies are chosen so that their difference reflects the desired frequency of the brain waves. People around the world listen to such prepared recordings in their own homes when they study or when they perform other cognitive activities.
