StanfordUniversityStanford University recently hosted a symposium engaging experts in an interdisciplinary dialogue on the hypothesis that brainwaves entrain to rhythmic auditory stimuli, a phenomenon known as auditory driving. “Brainwave entrainment” also known as frequency-following response, describes the way brainwaves modulate in tempo or frequency to gradually match the frequency of a rhythmic stimulus in the environment. Support comes from lab research on auditory driving, photic driving, phenomenological fieldwork, and existing clinical applications of this research.  Below are links from the Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics.

The algorithms used in the Neurowave sessions are largely based on breakthrough research in neuroplasticity by Dr. Alexander Ya Kaplan, Professor, D.Sc. (psychophysiology and psychopharmacology), Ph.D. (neurophysiology). Dr. Kaplan is the head of the Human Brain Research Group at Moscow State University, and also heads the Moscow government project on stress diagnosis in elementary school and university students.

Dr. Kaplan is internationally recognized as one of the foremost experts in fields related to the brain, including the Brain Computer Interface (BCI),†unconscious modes of neurofeedback, altered states of consciousness, studies in EEG, self-regulation, psychotherapy, behavioral therapy and abnormal psychology.
