Notes for this study:
A study in 32 people found that relaxing music paired with alpha binaural beats was more relaxing than the participant’s favorite music, as measured by blood pressure and heart rate, although it did not increase the presence of alpha waves as measured by EEG. A second part of the study saw that listening to the same relaxing music plus alpha beats for 30 minutes daily for a week could increase overall alpha wave production in the brain, but did not have any long-term effects on heart rate and blood pressure.
