Research dealing with the relationships between Brain waves and psycho-physiological processes has been prodigious since WWII. Anatomists, physiologists, psychologists, neurologists and physicians have all made major contributions. Significant advances have unquestionably contributed to the delineation of anatomical connections, physiological functions within the structure of the brain and cortical responses to environmental stimulation of the organism. Brain wave patterns have been correlated with states of alertness and sleep, drug responses, physiological states of activation and as a tool in the clinical diagnosis of functional and organic diseases of the central nervous system.
