Read the text on page 58 of the Neuroplastic Transformation workbook. It explains the use of slow rhythms to capture spontaneous firing of nerves in the process of Long Term Potentiation (LTP). Neuroscientists have recently discovered another rhythm of the brain that is slower yet, found in Resting State Networks. These networks create the foundational slow wave electrical activity of the brain that all of the other faster rhythms are built upon. Two of these networks, the Frontoinsular Network and the Default Mode Network are intricately involved in generating persistent pain. These networks are normally in a rhythm of firing with each other one time every ten seconds. This shifts to once every 4.5 to 5 seconds in persistent pain states. When this happens the pain generates more pain and takes over a person’s life.
Brain music sound files have been created to capture and reset the brain’s natural rhythms. These sounds are pleasing and soothing. They can help with stress, sleep difficulties and pain.
