Talk on ‘Brainwave entrainment’ by Punit Parmananda, IIT Bombay – 22 January 2020

Prof. Punit Parmananda from IIT Bombay would be delivering a talk on ‘Brainwave entrainment’ on 22th January 2020 at 3:30 pm.

All the students and faculty are invited to the talk.

Venue

Saradananda Seminar Hall, Prajna Bhavan, RKMVERI Belur Campus

Abstract

The phenomenon of the entrainment of human brainwaves to a predetermined aperiodic stimulus is endeavored. Initially, the periodic entrainment of the brainwaves was studied using two different stimuli in the form of periodic auditory and visual signals. The entrainment with the periodic visual stimulation was consistently observed, whereas the auditory entrainment was inconclusive. Thereafter, the entrainment to a bi-frequency photic signal is studied. Finally, the evolution of brainwaves as a result of an aperiodic photic stimulation was attempted, wherein an entrainment to the predetermined aperiodic pattern was observed. This guided modification of brainwaves may find possible applications in suppressing some types of epilepsy and in biofeedback.
