Alpha Wave

The alpha wave is a type of brain wave. It occupies the frequency range from 8 Hz to 12 Hz, and perhaps predictably, it is named as alpha, because it was the first range of brainwaves ever recorded.

It is focused at the rear of the brain, and is a basic rhythm continually put out, increased when the eyes are closed, and the individual is not thinking about anything, just relaxing. In short, it seems to be an ?idle signal?.
