Brainwave Entrainment

A typical neuron only takes 1 millisecond to respond to a stimulus, but when millions of neurons discharge in unison, they produce “sweeping” electrical charges. These charges create a rhythm called “brainwave”. Brainwave Entrainment (BWE) refers to the brain‘s electrical response to rhythmic sensory
stimulation, such as pulses of sound or light. This can be achieved via several mechanics. Audio-Visual Entrainment such as OmniBrain is one way to achieve such purpose.

When the brain is given a stimulus, through the ears, eyes or other senses, it emits an electrical charge in response, called a Cortical Evoked Response (shown below). These electrical responses travel throughout the brain to become what you “see and hear.” This activity can be measured using sensitive electrodes attached to the scalp.


Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) is one of the most popular Brainwave Entrainment systems that leverages on audio and light stimulation. Omnium1’s OmniBrain is an advance AVE system that is designed based on brainwave entrainment principle. It provides music, tone and light (color) therapy with highly customizable color options and music selection. It  can also be operated as a standalone system with the Omnium1 controller, without the PEMF applicators.
