How to understand the graph

Postby fivesenses » Sat Nov 19, 2016 7:52 am

Hi, I'm using Muse Monitor solely for personal use and so have never seen an EEG graph in my life. I want to know when I'm entering the 7.5-8.5Hz state so I can figure out which meditation practices induce this most easily. But I have no idea how to find that out when I look at the graph. Can you give me some insight please? Thanks.

To see a specific frequency, switch to the discrete frequency graph, shown below.

You can then read off values for each individual frequency. For example, the approximate 7.5-8.5Hz area is circled in red.

Thanks for replying. So let's say I do a 20 minute session and I want to know how long I was in the theta state. How could I tell from this graph?

This is a real time graph, so you would have to watch it and see ;-)
Instead switch to the spectrogram, which displays discrete frequency data plotted over time.
Use a two finger touch to adjust the maximum and minimum magnitude range values, to tweak the spectral output.
