Alpha Rhythms Patterns Tasks and Visual Input Introduction Brain waves are a well known phenomena associated with human brain activity. Different brain waves are associated with different mental states and activities. The best known of these brain wave patterns are alpha wave patterns. Alpha waves are associated with sensory-movement feed back patterns( Buzsaki , 2006,p.237). The alpha wave patterns have been shown to intimately connected with vision. A number of research studies have focused on what effect vision has on alpha wave patterns. One of the most interesting studies found that there was a general lack of alpha rhythms in a subject with early bilateral occipital damage( Giaschi et al,2003,p.785). This would seem to suggest that...The end:
