New technology allows you to control brain waves

Diagnostic electrical vibrations of the headbrain are called rhythms. Recently, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology managed to teach subjects to manipulate their own alpha waves, thereby increasing attention when performing a specific task.
