Study Suggests You Can Improve Your Learning Ability by Self-Modulating Your Neural Oscillations

News

Neuronal alpha oscillations in the range of 10 Hz are neural waves that reduce processing in certain brain regions to provide resources for upcoming information. Alpha oscillations can be easily influenced by neurofeedback training. Researchers have discovered that participants can self-regulate their learning success in a perceptual learning task by altering their alpha oscillations.
