The Effects of Negative Emotional Stimuli on Alpha Blunting

  • Paul G. Swingle

Abstract

Blunted alpha response at locations O1 and Cz has been found to be associated with exposure to severe emotional stressors. Subjects exposed to an emotionally negative photograph had alpha blunting, whereas controls shown a pastoral scene with similar color tones and those not shown any pictures did not have alpha blunting. Braindriving neurotherapeutic
treatment procedures found effective for restoring the alpha response and correlated trauma ‘‘release’’ are discussed.
