An algorithm can turn brain waves patterns into musical scores. Dr. Galina Mindlin of the Brain Music Therapy Center explains how this can heal:
Researchers can turn a person’s brain waves into music notes using a computerized mathematical formula. Some experts say that those notes can heal. When you play the “relaxing” file on your brain music CD, your brain tells your body to relax. When you listen to your “activating” or “energy” file, the theory is that you’ll feel more alert. Called brain music therapy, this treatment has been used by thousands of patients worldwide to treat anxiety, insomnia, even depression.
Dr. Galina Mindlin, a neuro-psychiatrist with Brain Music Therapy Center in New York City brought this treatment to the U.S. from Moscow. Dr. Mindlin was interviewed on “Today,” about this treatment.
