As you read, billions of neurons fire on and off in your brain while communicating the experience of your consciousness. When each of these electrical firings is detected as a whole, a "wave" effect is observed. These cumulative electrical rhythms are referred to as "brain waves".

By using an electroencephalograph (EEG), one can detect electrical brainwave signals over the scalp. Brainwaves are recognized, within subcategories, while monitoring the brain's electrical activity as it engages in any activity. For example: while sleeping dreamlessly, your brainwaves take on slower rhythms than when you are aware and awake.

To learn more, read the conditions of the 4 brainwave states below...

The Four Main Brainwave States

Beta (13Hz - 40Hz) - Highly alert and well focused. Beta activity is quick-connect, fast activity. Typically detected frontally, It is usually seen on both sides of the brain in geometric distribution. It may be
absent or reduced in areas of brain damage. It is generally
regarded as a normal rhythm and tends to be the dominant
rhythm in those who are alert, anxious or have their eyes open.

Alpha (8Hz -13Hz) - Relaxed alertness. Alpha is usually best detected in the frontal regions of the head, on each side of the brain. Its presence is increased by closing the eyes and relaxation, yet is offset by opening one's eyes or any concentrated effort.
Alpha is the major rhythm seen in normal relaxed adults.
Typically this rate is established as the common relaxation
mode beyond the age of 13.

Theta (4Hz - 8Hz) - Drowsiness, daydreaming - first stage of sleep; or 'indirect' imagination/thinking. Theta activity is not often
seen in awake adults but is perfectly normal in alert
children up to 13 years and in most sleep. 
Delta () - 4Hz) - Deep sleep or slow-wave 'background' thinking. Much like bass sound, Delta tends to be the highest in
amplitude and the slowest waves. It is quite normal and is
the dominant rhythm in infants up to one year and
in the stages 3 and 4 of deep dreamless sleep.
