Brain Wave Change with Autism

What is Brain Wave?

Brain waves are generated by the building blocks of your brain -- the individual cells called neurons. Neurons communicate with each other by electrical changes. We can actually see these electrical changes in the form of brain waves as shown in an EEG (electroencephalogram).
Brain waves are measured in cycles per second (Hertz; Hz is the short form). We also talk about the "frequency" of brain wave activity.
The lower the number of Hz, the slower the brain activity or the slower the frequency of the activity.
Researchers in the 1930's and 40's identified several different types of brain waves. Traditionally, these fall into 4 types:

Delta waves (below 4 hz) occur during sleep
Theta waves (4-7 hz) are associated with sleep, deep relaxation (like hypnotic relaxation), and visualization
Alpha waves (8-13 hz) occur when we are relaxed and calm
Beta waves (13-38 hz) occur when we are actively thinking, problem-solving, etc.
Since these original studies, other types of brainwaves have been identified and the traditional 4 have been subdivided.
 

What Kind Brain Wave Works in Normal Condition?

People tend to talk as if they were producing one type of brain wave (e.g., producing "alpha" for meditating).
But these aren't really "separate" brain waves - the categories are just for convenience.
They help describe the changes we see in brain activity during different kinds of activities.
So we don't ever produce only "one" brain wave type.
Our overall brain activity is a mix of all the frequencies at the same time, some in greater quantities and strength than others.

The meaning of all this? Balance is the key. We don't want to regularly produce too much or too little of any brainwave frequency.

Brain Waves Show Autism Language Problems

"CHICAGO — Unique brain wave patterns, spotted for the first time in autistic children, may help explain why they have so much trouble communicating.

"Using an imaging helmet that resembles a big salon hair dryer, researchers discovered what they believe are "signatures of autism" that show a delay in processing individual sounds."
