Joy and sadness, sweet and sour, light and dark are sensations that produce brain wave records as different as fingerprints.

Emotions and feelings would be responsible for saving rational and non-rational processes. Therefore, we can understand that basic emotions and thoughts go hand in hand and that when an overload of emotions or stress occurs, the nervous system cannot keep up.

Each person has their own characteristic of brain wave actions. With a pattern and a rhythm, it incorporates Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta frequencies at various levels. Through daily executions, the brain modulates them to adapt to certain tasks.
