Gamma brain waves are the highest frequency brain wave type. A number of studies have found links between gamma activity and a wide variety of significant cognitive functions, such as idea formation, linguistic processing, and multiple types of learning. One interesting finding on gamma, for example, is the way it appears to be linked to the cognitive act of processing memories- the rate of the waves seems to correlate with the speed at which a subject can recall memories; the faster the waves, the faster the recollection.

The studies highlighted in the infographic above were cited in Dr. Tina Huang’s landmark overview of brainwave stimulation, “A Comprehensive Review of the Psychological Effects of Brainwave Entrainment.”
We have just one more brain wave infographic still to come- we’ll take a closer look at theta brain waves in the final part of our series.
