Abstract: The effects of audio-visual stimulation at the dominant alpha frequency and twice dominant alpha frequency on the EEG were investigated. An eyes-closed baseline EEG determined each subject's dominant alpha frequency. Subjects were stimulated at their dominant alpha frequency and at twice dominant alpha frequency for 20 min on two occasions. A 30-min post-session eyes-closed EEG was recorded after each session. Power data were analyzed for 19 locations in six bandpasses using repeated-measures ANOVAs and appropriate post-hoc tests. Alpha stimulation significantly increased power over baseline levels in the delta I, delta 2, theta, beta 1 and beta 2, with significant effects remaining 30 min later in beta 1. Twice alpha stimulation significantly increased theta, beta 1 and beta 2 power over baseline levels, with significant effects remaining 30 min later in theta, alpha, beta 1 and beta 2.
