Read the text on page 58 of the Neuroplastic Transformation workbook. It explains the use of slow rhythms to capture spontaneous firing of nerves in the process of Long Term Potentiation (LTP). Neuroscientists have recently discovered another rhythm of the brain that is slower yet, found in Resting State Networks. These networks create the foundational slow wave electrical activity of the brain that all of the other faster rhythms are built upon. Two of these networks, the Frontoinsular Network and the Default Mode Network are intricately involved in generating persistent pain. These networks are normally in a rhythm of firing with each other one time every ten seconds. This shifts to once every 4.2 to 5 seconds in persistent pain states. When this happens the pain generates more pain and takes over a person’s life.
Brain music sound files have been created to capture and reset the brain’s natural rhythms. These sounds are pleasing and soothing. They can help with stress, sleep difficulties and pain.
This animation combines the sound of Tibetan Singing Bowls being gonged once every ten seconds with a visual of the Default Mode Network and the Frontoinsular Salience Network fading in and out at the same rhythm. This provides visual, auditory and motion stimuli to the observer creating a neuroplastic environment promoting the brain's resting state. A second rhythm is established of one to two and one half cycles per second by the hum generated between the two different bowls. The soundtrack came from Brain Music: Default Mode Network and is a good example if listens wish to hear one of these soothing songs.
NurpleStyx is an App being built combining visual, auditory, rhythmic, vibratory and movement stimulation of brain centers to soothe and stimulate, creating a pleasurable state of happiness. Try this sample, best listened to with headphones or external speakers.
