Wake Forest Baptist conducts clinical study for insomnia using new technology
Date:6/30/2011

use it is such a common condition in the general population and because it is a condition for which improvement can be easily measured. Twenty people who tested for moderate to severe insomnia were enrolled and underwent baseline testing. The study participants were randomly placed into two separate groups. The first group underwent eight to 12 Brainwave Optimization sessions each while the second group continues as is, acting as the control group. Once the data has been collected, the second group will also undergo the sessions.

The Brainwave Optimization process begins with specifically placed electrodes affixed to the scalp and connected to a computer to detect the brainwaves of various brain lobes. A brainwave is electromagnetic energy that can be broken down into frequencies. Higher frequencies have more cycles per second and, relative to sound, would be a higher pitch on a musical scale. To reflect the brain's own optimal wave patterns back to it non-invasively, the frequencies are assigned a musical tone, and played back to the subject via stereo ear buds placed in the ears this is done in almost real time. As the brain resonates with the transmitted sounds, changes occur in the neural network.

One study participant described his experience as having "a big reset button that's been hit."

While Brainwave Optimization has already been used by more than 32,000 people around the world, this clinical study at Wake Forest Baptist is the first attempt to look at a specific health problem insomnia in a controlled setting in order to be able to measure outcomes and results.

"Sleep problems and sleep deprivation can have far reaching implications on people's health and well being," Tegeler said. "Lack of sleep can affect people's lives with detrimental effects from irritability to sickness to weight gain and more."
