Does the alpha state of the brain increase learning?
I was catching up on topics since being back, and while reading this topic about where creativity comes from and a thought popped into my head.
I’ve heard going into the alpha state in your brain increases creativity and learning skills, something I’ll need quite badly next semester at Uni. I looked some stuff up on the internets but really all I can find are very uninformative things which aren’t backed up by research, and if they are, they claim “leading research shows” and don’t cite it.
So my question is: Is there anyone who knows, either anecdotally or through a source of research, the problems and benefits of entering into the alpha state of the brain?
