Interview with Dr. Galina Mindlin on ‘brain wave music’ at MSNBC


MSNBC have published an interview with Dr. Galina Mindlin about ‘brain wave music’:

Researchers can turn a person’s brain waves into music notes using a computerized mathematical formula. Some experts say that those notes can heal. When you play the “relaxing� file on your brain music CD, your brain tells your body to relax. When you listen to your “activating� or “energy� file, the theory is that you’ll feel more alert. Called brain music therapy, this treatment has been used by thousands of patients worldwide to treat anxiety, insomnia, even depression.

MSNBC.com: How do you turn brain waves into music?

Dr. Galina Mindlin: Brain waves are translated into music digitally with a special algorithm. It took many years and the effort of a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, researchers, mathematicians and musicians led by Dr. Iakov Levine to develop this algorithm. Once the brain waves are converted into musical sounds, they are placed on a CD with a relaxing file and activating file and instructions on how to use them.
