The listings below represent our attempt to point you, our visitor, in the right direction toward researching more about brainwave entrainment. It does not by any means represent the entirety of the research conducted in this field. And, new research comes out all the time.
Below are additional reading recommendations.
NOTE: This list recommends studies on entrainment as well as books and additional research into biofeedback and other important aspects this field.
